DUO OF DUOS CONCERT

Two great valley musical duos join forces on Sunday June 24th at 7:00 pm. This free concert takes place at Courtenay Simms Millennium Park and is hosted by the City of Courtenay.

The duos include Brodie Lee Dawson & Luke Blu Guthrie and Annie Handley & Dave Devindisch (Easy Street).

Brodie and Luke have teamed up for some great sounds with the latest stylings of their original tunes. Together, their music promises to be truthful, soulful and creative with a touch of humour.

Annie and Dave (known as Easy Street) play songs from the 1940’s up till today in a fun jazzy style.  Their songs feature an easy going smooth sound and harmonies with some comedic MC-ing.
