Howlin' Halloween at the Hall

It wouldn't be Halloween without a dance at the Roberts Creek Hall. On Oct.

It wouldn't be Halloween without a dance at the Roberts Creek Hall.

On Oct. 29, Mud Dogs brings sizzlin' hot Mississippi delta blues to the Sunshine Coast in a fundraiser for the Elphinstone Cou-gars girls' volleyball team, one of the top-ranked teams in the province.

Mud Dogs is the brainchild of Steve Sainas, a singer/songwriter/guitar player who has built an audience across the Lower Mainland in the last two decades with his powerful and original take on blues classics. Sainas formed Mud Dogs to pay tribute to blues masters such as Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf and John Lee Hooker, but the best of his work is original.

Sainas is joined by Christopher Allen on harmonica and vocals. Allen has performed and recorded with Ronnie Hawkins, Tina Turner and David Foster. Randy Adams on drums and vocals and Rodney Koke on bass and vocals provide the pounding heartbeat for Mud Dogs. Dave Webb on organ and piano adds rich tones to smooth the sound.

Mud Dogs, featured on radio and seen regularly at The Yale, "fill the room with huge vocal harmonies and strong rhythms that make people wanna dance."

So, come as you are or as your favourite monster to this Halloween shindig at the Roberts Creek Hall, Saturday, Oct. 29, at 9 p.m. Your $15 ticket admits you to a night of frenzied dancing and also helps a local team of volleyball players realize their dreams.

Tickets are available at WindSong Gallery, Coast Books and the Roberts Creek Health Food Store.

This fundraising dance is brought to you by the Sunshine Coast Live Music Society, a registered, non-profit, volunteer-run society dedicated to bringing all styles of music to the Sunshine Coast.
