A September to Remember wouldn’t be our series of 30th anniversary party trips without live music! We are pleased and excited to announce the official line-up of outstanding musicians and recording artists who will be travelling to The Clubhouse to entertain our lucky guests to celebrate our milestone season:
30TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION TRIPS (THE CLUBHOUSE)
• AUG 29 – SEPT 2 / LABOUR DAY WEEKEND PARTY, featuring Ruckus Deluxe

August 29 – September 2: Labour Day Weekend Party, featuring Ruckus Deluxe
Our first September to Remember party trip kicks off with Ruckus Deluxe, a talented twosome from Whistler, BC that consists of Cirque du Soleil lead singer Chad Oliver on acoustic guitar and GRAMMY® nominated violinist Ian Cameron on fiddle, electric guitar and mandolin. In addition to working with countless other well-known artists, Ian and Chad perform over 200 dates a year and cover a massive range of rock, pop and country hits along with their award-winning originals.
September 2-6: Members Celebration, featuring Kenny “Blues Boss” Wayne and Don Wells
Next up is Juno Award winner Kenny “Blues Boss” Wayne. This legendary blues and boogie woogie piano master was inducted in 2017 into the Boogie Woogie Piano Hall of Fame while performing at the Cincy Blues Festival in Cincinnati, Ohio. Accompanied by Vancouver drummer Don Wells, Kenny Wayne will take a break from a hectic summer schedule that has him performing on three continents to bring his crowd-pleasing New Orleans style to Langara Island.
September 6-9: Last Weekend at Langara, featuring Mick Dalla-Vee and Marc LaFrance
The penultimate trip of the season, September 6-9 will see the return of Mick Dalla-Vee and Marc LaFrance, both members of the touring band of Canadian rock icon Randy Bachman as well as The Dock Rockers, who have rocked the rafters for the last three years at the annual season-ending party at The Clubhouse. Marc LaFrance has played drums with a long list of Canada’s best known artists and has appeared on over 200 recordings as a singer, providing vocal tracks for Alice Cooper, Jon Bon Jovi, Motley Crue and The Cult to name only a few. Mick Dalla-Vee is a multi-instrumentalist, singer and award-winning songwriter whose schedule includes numerous corporate shows with other talented musicians, paying amazingly authentic tributes to music legends such as Lennon and McCartney, Billy Joel, Elton John and Simon and Garfunkel.
September 9-12: End of Season Party with The Dock Rockers
Dalla-Vee and LaFrance will then close out the season September 9-12 with The End of Season Party with The Dock Rockers, a foursome that includes fellow Bachman band member Brent Knudsen on guitar, bass and vocals and Ian Cameron of Ruckus Deluxe on fiddle and guitar. Otherwise known in the western Canadian music industry for the past 30 years as Cease and Desist, The Dock Rockers promise to convert the fireplace lounge at The Clubhouse into the world’s most remote nightclub, much to the delight of guests who will enjoy fantastic late-season fishing by day and red-hot classic-rock dance music by night.
