Music in the Park

Wednesday nights in July & August in Pioneer Park

Join us Wednesday nights in Pioneer Park (corner of West Saanich Rd and Clarke Rd) from 6:30-8:30. There's parking at the library, or you can walk or bike to the park. Bring a blanket or lawn chair and a picnic dinner, or buy dinner from one of our vendors.   We sell 50/50 tickets each week to help us cover our costs, so remember to bring your $5!   

Last year, we added an extra small evening concert. It was such a success, we are adding three extra shows at the Brentwood Bay Village Empourium this summer , all on a Thursday evening. This gives us the opportunity to present workshops and smaller intimate concerts featuring touring BC musicians.
For over 16 years we've hosted our outdoor concerts, and have helped other municipalities set up their own outdoor concerts. We're very proud of our all-ages event, which brings the community together each week.  

We have completed booking our lineup for this year's MIP. 

If you wish to have your band considered for next year, please note that we do limit the number of cover bands that we book. We are looking for polished, experienced bands that can  connect with the audience and play great music.  We're looking for original, creative & engaging music that will suit an audience ages 0-100. 

Please check out the bands from this year, and see if your band fits the bill.

The Vancouver-born son of Canadian roots rocker Barney Bentall, Dustin  Bentall was raised on the music of Neil Young, The Band, Bob Dylan, Tom  T. Hall, The Beatles and Steve Earle.

July 26 - Echo Nebraska

Bursting on to the Canadian music scene in the fall of 2014 with the  release of a music video for their first single, ‘Hey, Allison’,  Vancouver’s Echo Nebraska quickly gained a reputation of combining soul  strung acoustic songs and subtle shades of Americana. Within a week of  launching the band, CBC Music added the video to their list of Best New  Music Videos for November 2014. Click here to have a listen.
