Upcoming Gigs For Late April, Early May 2014

Well, Tara's got some day job commitments coming up that will take her away from the band for a week or so. As a result our next few gigs will feature much less female vocal talent and a lot longer guitar solos and jamming. I've got a "solo" set this weekend at Jack's;
However, I suspect the rhythm pigs, Nick and Daz will show up so we can practice our "Tara Free" set because we'll be playing without her on May 2nd and 3rd at The Blue Marlin Inn in Port Alberni.  There's a small chance that ex-piggy Chester Hamm and some Port Alberni music friends will drop in on this gigs to play a few tunes, as well.
Of course, while all that's going on I'll also be playing my mellower acoustic jazz, blues and classic rock set every Sunday night at The Tin Wis starting at 6.

I'll also be bringing the unplugged set to The Wickaninnish Inn's Driftwood Café on May 8th (hopefully with Tara to help on the vocals), this will likely be my last Driftwood Café show for a while as, starting in June I'll be playing nearly every Thursday at The Black Rock Oceanfront Resort in Ucluelet.

So, it's getting pretty busy in the Ballistic Pig camp as summer approaches... Weekends are booked pretty solid through July and there are a lot of tentative bookings in place so if you need music for something be sure to drop us a line:

Thanks, Geoff
