Memorable shows lined up for November

Osborne Bay Pub features blues at their best, classic rock and a Steely Dan tribute band

The entertainment package at Crofton’s Osborne Bay Pub in November is the perfect bundle before the Christmas season begins to unfold throughout December.

“We have a very ambitious lineup for November,” conceded Patricia Berry, owner of Berry Music Co. Ltd. and general manager/marketing executive for the Osborne Bay Pub.

Father and son team Lazy Mike and Carson Mallon get the month into the swing of things right away on Friday, Nov. 1 at 7 p.m. They’ve been a mainstay on the Vancouver Island blues scene for more than a decade in various projects.

The Pretzel Logic Orchestra, a Steely Dan tribute band from Victoria, plays the pub Saturday, Nov. 2 with tickets going for $20 in advance or $25 at the door.

Formed in 2002, the orchestra plays all those familiar Steely Dan hits like Do It Again, Peg, Rikki Don’t Lose That Number and more.

A night of classic rock is featured Nov. 8 with Big Smoke from Victoria, covering the iconic ’70s and ’80s tunes.

Harpdog Brown and The Uptown Blues Band takes the stage Nov. 9. Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 at the door.

Vancouver-based Harpdog Brown, born in Edmonton, has grown a reputation as a real-deal purveyor of classic electric blues.

Rotten Little Kings, a four-piece rock band from Victoria, are up next on Nov. 15. They create original rock music with a countrified bluesy edge.

Nov. 23 will be a big night with Big Hank’s Tribute to the Blues Songs of Christmas, featuring the R&B Kingpins. Tickets are $15 in advance or $20 at the door.

Big Hank has been singing the blues since 1974. The Kingpins are a six-piece band that will provide a glimpse into the heart and soul of Christmas from a blues standpoint.

The incredible monthly lineup concludes Nov. 29 with Adrian Chalifour of Towers and Trees doing an album release show, with special guests Old Soul Rebel.

“We are honoured to have so many incredible musician’s support in keeping this live music venue up and running,” enthused Berry.
