SIDNEY – Drummer Mike Harrison grew up in Sidney and will be returning later this month with his band, Black Flamango.

“I grew up in Sidney, spent 22 years there and then moved to Nanaimo 10 years ago,” said Harrison.

“In that time I have opened my own drum shop and lesson studios called Harbour City Music Pro Drum and Live Sound Shop and I became a professional drummer.”

On June 29, Harrison will return to Sidney with his band Black Flamango for a show at Mary’s Bleue Moon.

The band was formed in fall of 2012 by Harrison, Anatol McGinnis, Tom Morris and fill-in bass player Nyck Machura will be joining them for the show on the 29th which will feature classic and modern rock tunes.

“We formed the group by request of a few venues who were looking for a diverse more energetic cover band,” said Harrison, who added that once they started playing gigs, they were booked solid.

Reservations are recommended (call Mary’s Bleue Moon at 250-655-4450) for the show which begins at 8 p.m. For more information on Black Flamango, visit their Facebook page at www.facebook.com/blackflamango.
