Named after Garton’s grandfather’s special ops flights squadron in the Second World War, the band blends rockabilly and rock steady with country and cajun sounds.

Next up on the roster is Blue Moon Marquee on April 30. The blues band is made up of A.W. Cardinal on vocals and guitar and Jasmine Colette on vocals, bass and drums.

On May 14, John Welsh will entertain. He’s a musician who draws his influences from the likes of Ben Harper, Sam Roberts and Joel Plaskett, combining folk, surf rock, reggae and Latin music.

And finally, on May 28, David Beckingham — a founding member with Hey Ocean who releases his debut album, Just When the Light, on May 27 — will close the series.

All shows run from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Michael Wright Art Gallery.

For tickets at $10/$8/$5, call the city at 604-927-7529 or visit experienceit.ca.
