The Twisters.

SURREY — It’s not even Halloween and the people of White Rock Blues Society already have New Year’s Eve on their minds.

The group of blues lovers will bring The Twisters and guest Jerry Cook to South Surrey’s Rhumba Room, at Pacific Inn Resort, on the evening of Saturday, Dec. 31.

For food, the “New Year’s Eve Blues BBQ” event will feature a Southern-barbecue buffet.

Event tickets are $105, plus a $3.50 service charge, via White Rock Blues Society’s website or by phone, 604-542-6515.

“This is our 7th annual New Year’s Eve Blues Celebration and they have all been very successful events,” the organization says in its latest e-newsletter.

“It’s nice to know that you don’t have to go downtown to experience such a good time. Great food &  entertainment, big dance floor, reduced rate for hotel guest rooms, free parking with all the bells an whistles like party favors and champagne at midnight.”

Only 120 tickets are available for the event.

Pacific Inn Resort is located at 1060 King George Blvd., Surrey.
