LIVE MUSIC ON JULY 1ST
2 PM – 5 PM
CHURCH STREET PARK BESIDE THE FIRE HALL
RIGHT AFTER THE PARADE HEAD UP TO PARK AND BE ENTERTAINED BY BON EVANS AND ROARSHACK.
Bon has been writing and performing music in the Kingston and surrounding area for several years.
His song Forsaken Look was recorded in Bath and after releasing it, the guitar company reached out to sponsor his most recent B.C. tour.
Whether playing in a full rocking band, casual duo, or solo the songs always connect with a wide variety of audiences. Some of the cover songs you can expect to hear are from Jack Johnson, John Legend, Bruce Springsteen, Ed Sheeran and more. Those artists are a good representation of what style of music you will hear.
Bon is also the heart and soul behind the new series of Sunday afternoon concerts at the Pavillion in Finkle’s Shore Park.
Upcoming shows: Rockin’ the Rock (Howe Island), Back to the Farm (Bath), Touring with VIA Rail as the “Artist on Board” to Halifax in August (shows TBA).
Favourite genres: story teller songs which cover a wide variety of genres.
Influences: Bob Dylan, Karen Carpenter, Bon Scott, John Lennon, Jack Johnson, Cat Stevens
