 I’m glad the organizers added a beer gardens, sponsored by  local internet radio station jessfm.ca, and live music to accompany the watching of cool cars.

 I caught most of the Concert for A Cause which included my first opportunity to see local country band the Cody hall band.


 The band  took the opportunity to play for a good sized crowd to play a whole bunch of upbeat country originals. They also added a few covers including a capable cover of Tom Petty’s “Freefalling.”
 They  ended their set  by turning Wheatus’s quirky ’90s one hit wonder “Teenage Dirtbag into a pretty cool country song.


Alyssa McQuaid and Coyote Junction also concentrated on original music, showcasing the individual songwriters in the band.


 They also added a couple of key covers including a haunting version of Dolly Parton’s “Jolene,” and some pure fun with covers of “500 Miles” and Cadillac Ranch” as well as a n excellent version of Fleetwood Mac’s “Don’t Stop.”
