There’s plenty to love about the February lineup at Crofton’s Osborne Bay Pub.

Berry Music Company’s month of entertainment kicks off on Saturday, Feb. 1 with the South Island Rhythm Kings.

At the nucleus of the Kings is the father/son team of (Lazy) Mike Mallon on vocals and harmonica, and Carson Mallon on guitar and vocals. The two have been mainstay on the Vancouver Island Blues scene for more than a decade in various projects.

Showtime is 8 p.m. and tickets are $10 at the door.

Vince Vaccaro plays Friday, Feb. 7 at 8 p.m. He’s a Canadian singer-songwriter, guitarist and record producer who has performed largely as a solo artist, but is on occasion backed up by a band.

Vaccaro has released eight studio albums, four EPs and several singles to date, with more releases coming in 2020.

Tickets are $15 each available at Eventbrite.

It’s All About Love is the special Valentine’s Day event with a three-course dinner and show featuring the Edie Daponte Quartet.

Daponte brings passion, playfulness and an evident love of performing to her live shows.

She will be performing with sidemen Karel Roessingh, Joey Smith and Damian Graham for an unforgettable Valentine’s concert.

Seating is limited so reservations are required. The cost is $65 per person. Call 250-324-2245.

Table seatings will be at 5:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.

Freeze Frame – 80s night takes place Saturday, Feb. 22 at 8 p.m., with tickets available for $10 at the door.

Freeze Frame takes you on a musical journey through the 1980s and beyond.

Mark Crissinger then appears in a solo show on Friday, Feb. 28 at 7 p.m. There’s no cover for the night of new blues and acoustic boogaloo.

Crissinger’s solo show features stellar guitar playing and soulful vocals. Blending traditional themes, clever lyrics and modern arrangements, he performs his original blues and roots music, capturing his singer-songwriter soul and the blues in his heart.

And celebrate Leap Year Day on Saturday, Feb. 29 at 8 p.m. with Black Angus and a rip-roaring Celtic night. Tickets are $10 at door.

Gareth Hurwood is the voice, the guitar, the poetry and the passion while Alex MacCuaig is the driving force on bass and harmonies. Sarah Tradewell, on fiddle, brings traditional fire and grace while Tom Salter ties up the package with his focused drive and irresistible beat on drums.

With their high energy level and great stage presence, Black Angus performs some traditional and contemporary Irish tunes, acoustic roots, Americana, west coast Celtic, blues and old-time music.
