The Tuesday night Jam at Roberts Creek Legion - A great night of music and conversation. Wow! There were some truly awesome sets last night - Jamie's giant jam set of some rockers was just excellent - pretty much everyone got in on that one - Nice version of Gloria everyone! Victor started us off with some tasteful original jazzy numbers and things just maintained a stellar note from there.
Neighbour Dave Harvey played an excellent solo set - you had us all captivated Dave - especially with your version of Simon and Garfunkle's 'America'.
Brad Tavares kicked serious finger picking' classical guitar ass! Wow!
Newcomer to the coast - Adam blew us away with his original grunge/rock vocals and guitar. Jamie and Djembe Mama joined Adam and filled out the rocking sounds of Adam's originals. Well done all! Very cool bass sounds on that guitar Jamie!
Cam Peters hit the stage with a combination of covers and originals. Keeping the night moving along and maintaining a very high bar! Nice job Cam. Great to hear you bringing vocals in to your tunes!
The Dylan's and Jamie performed a set that totally rocked! Beginning with Cream - sunshine of your love...well...you know...it just went crazy after that!
Dave UK joined in on the Djembe - very nice to see you again Dave!
John Sharkey performed a few blues tunes, leading us all in a mega jam of G-L-O-R-I-A! Nice job Jamie and the Dylan's and everyone else who joined in: Ray, Debra, Dave UK, Anne, Dave Philley, and Michael Munro on Drums. Rock-in!
Dave Philley performed a few folky numbers for us - believe me, after that last rockin' set Bob Seger, Turn the Page is folky! Nice Job Dave Philley - joined by Michael Munro, Jamie, Dylan Brackett, Anne and yours truly (Michelle) on backups. Fun set Dave.
Cody got up and wrapped up our night with some originals of his own. Joined by Michael Munro on drums/percussion and Don on guitar (didn't get a pic of you Don - next time!).
Thanks to everyone who came out to watch and listen and enjoy Dylan's great food!
And special thanks to Richard Lachance for the help with sound and for providing your DJ services for our jam - I always enjoy your song choices and your very positive energy!
See you next week!

Roberts Creek Legion is introducing advance ticket sales for selected events, beginning with 'the fantastic and improbable return' of Roots Roundup, appearing Friday, March 21st, 2014.

With the Little Legion's events calendar filling up rapidly in upcoming months, advance sales will allow members to purchase tickets for themselves and their guests, ensuring entry to popular shows and eliminating the need to arrive early or wait in long line-ups at the door.

Advance tickets are available to Members in Good Standing (i.e. paid up for the current year). Proof of membership must be presented at time of purchase and when attending the event. Members may buy additional tickets for up to four of their guests. Member tickets must be bought in person and are not transferrable. Tickets will be on sale from the bartender during open hours, except during entertainment nights when the bar is too busy to process sales.

If you're not currently a member, or if your membership is due for renewal, new memberships or renewals are available at the bar and may be processed prior to ticket purchases. Members receive 1/2 price on admission to events as well as other benefits. Visit our membership page for more information, or to renew online (some restrictions apply). Another great reason to join Roberts Creek Legion, your 'friendly little legion'!

"Creek Daze" is an annual community event put on by our Roberts Creek Community Association to support their efforts and celebrate this unique and wonderful place our branch calls home. In the Creek Daze parade this year (August 17th, 2013), Little Legion participants marched under the banner "We are YOU!", proudly showing Roberts Creek that our members are unique, diverse, multigenerational and enthusiastic! (well, we didn't actually march, we were riding our beautiful float!).

Members joined us in some fun representing our Little Legion by dressing up as 'themselves' — a beekeeper, cook, gardener, yoga enthusiast, hula hooper — and waving Team 219 flags. The float (a flat-bed truck donated for the day by a member) decorated with poppies, gumboots and banners painted by talented volunteers, was led by a local pipe band and our legion colours.
