WHITE ROCK — Daniel Wesley, The Washboard Union, Dustin Bentall and Harry Manx are some of the performers signed on for the TD Concerts at the Pier series staged in White Rock this summer.
The six-concert series will open on Saturday, July 9 with Wesley, The Katherines and Switch to Black, and will close on Aug. 20 with the lineup of Manx, J.P. Maurice and Richard Tichelman.
The lineup for the series, backed by the City of White Rock and White Rock Business Improvement Association, was announced on Friday morning (June 3).
“The quality of the concert series lineup speaks volumes for what we are trying to achieve,” said Douglas Smith, executive director of the BIA.
“We are showcasing an eclectic array of musical talent that will appeal to everyone. Putting them on stage on the waterfront at West Beach makes for an amazing venue.”
