The man who brought intimate evening concerts to JoJo’s Cafe is again expanding the Osoyoos community’s musical horizon.
Alan Bleiken has introduced a piano to the Wildfire Grill’s Lizard Lounge, offering the opportunity for “Happy Hour” entertainment.
“The piano is there to fill a gap in our town’s social scene,” explained Alan. “It is a place where you will be able to have a meal, visit with your friends, and enjoy some live music at the same time.”
Although a number of guests have sat down and given it a play, the piano will have its ivories officially tickled for the first time in its new location this afternoon at 5 p.m. as the Wildfire hosts its grand opening.
A similar evening is scheduled for Saturday as well.
“This is hopefully only the beginning,” said Alan. “We’re also looking for guitar players and harp players who would enjoy this type of venue — a touch of class in a quaint facility.”
Those wanting to ensure seating at the Wildfire for the piano’s launch can call 250-495-2215.
