TONYE AGANABA

JULY 09, 2022 | Dinner 6:30pm | Concert 8:00pm

Tonye Aganaba is a multidisciplinary artist, musician, and performer residing on the unceded territories of the Squamish, Musqueam & Tsleil-Waututh First Nations. Tonye’s style, like their gender, is fluid (or at the very least non-binary) – but can be described as Soul/Neo-Folk/R&B, and although unique, they have been likened to folx like Lauryn Hill, Ani DiFranco, and Chaka Khan. Tonye is a Much More Music Video Award recipient, a steadfast fixture in their arts community, and the kind of singer/performer that turns heads wherever they go.  

In early 2015, Tonye’s trajectory was interrupted by a diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis, but the full stop came two years later, when an accident on an icy back road in the Peace Region left their spine fractured in six places. All plans were waylaid, and in many ways, Tonye has had to start over, and they bear the scars to show it. They now refer to MS as the best thing that ever happened to them. A wake up call offering a new lease on life, and a crystalline vision and purpose to connect with audiences on a deeper level through intentional work and fostering meaningful dialogue within communities.

THE BANDSTORMER BAND FEATURING MELANIE DEKKER 

JULY 23, 2022 | Dinner 6:30pm | Concert 8:00pm

Join us for a full evening with Melanie Dekker, an international recording artist, originally for North Vancouver’s Deep Cove. A Canadian roots-pop songwriter from Vancouver, BC, Melanie’s voice is like chocolate, and her world class strumming and authentic approach has earned her many radio hits and hundreds of tour dates. Melanie focuses on the connection between people and the emotions that guide us. By intertwining her fresh, vivaciously expressed stories with a powerful variety of songs, Melanie’s music will tug on your heart and leave you smiling. 

Then, the evening continues with The Barnstormer Band! This 5-piece, roaring 20’s band is lead by Melanie Dekker and features instrumentation from world class musicians who combine easy-going musicianship, costumes, and multi-instrumental talents. The full Barnstormer experience includes banjo, kazoo, guitars, upright bass, a traditional trap drum kit, clarinet and belt-it-out vocals. Watch some playful banter between famous 1920’s characters (like Einstein and Al Capone), and embrace the prohibition era with this vivacious band!
