COMPLETELY CREEDENCE is a Creedence Clearwater Revival (CCR) tribute band who wants to invite you to a night out to remember the incredible music that John Fogerty and CCR provided for the world to enjoy and relate to.
CCR was a popular rock band, active in the late 1960's and early 1970's. Their musical style encompassed the roots rock and swamp rock genres. Hits include "Proud Mary", "I Put a Spell On You", "Suzie Q", "Fortunate son", "Bad Moon Rising" and many more.
This four piece musical group Completely Creedence is made up of four guys from incredible musical background, veterans in the industry.
Completely Creedence features: Jamie Robertson vocals and rhythm guitar, Pat Steward on drums, Murray Atkinson on guitar and Todd Smiley on bass guitar. Robertson's voice has been commented on how remarkably it sounds so similar to John Fogerty and captures all the nuances of Fogerty's voice.
Completely Creedence is a CCR tribute band that invites you to be transported back in time to an era of incredible music of the times. If you love CCR so do these guys. Come out for a night of taking you back to how music was supposed to be.

Tim Hortons Summer Concert Series
The Mojo Stars






Bring your lawn chair or blanket to the Picnic Shelter at the Parksville Community Park and enjoy this free concert brought to you by Tim Hortons. Be sure to stop in to visit our Sand Sculpture Exhibition and view incredible works of art made from just sand and water.

Formed almost twelve years ago, The Mojo Stars quickly established themselves as a force to be reckoned with. With deep roots in the blues and soul combined with a rock driven edge, this multi-talented band has been collecting a large following, starting from their debut performance at one of the closing nights of Vancouverís 2006 Jazz Festival, to their festival dates for summer, 2019.
Started by singer and front man Randy Clarke and guitarist Mark Rankin, the band recorded their first CD, 2009ís Devilís Advocate, a collection of ten original songs penned by Clarke and Rankin. The CD received massive airplay being featured on blues programs in Canada, the US and Europe, including being the new spotlight artist on Canadian Brent Zwickerís show, At The Crossroads. The disc was also in regular rotation on the USís Tony Steidler Dennisonís podcast, The Roadhouse, which has a listenership of over 10,000. Locally, the band had four songs featured in the Vancouver Provinceís Playlist section in 2009/2010, which with an online/print weekly readership of 920,000, enabled them to reach an even greater audience.
In 2017, the band released their second CD, Under The Influence, which debuted in the top ten of the Roots Music Reportsí Top 50 Blues Rock Albums, and in the top 20 Canadian releases. With rave reviews from a variety of international critics, the band continued playing a series of high profile shows in 2018 and 2019, splitting the bill with acts like Curtis Salgado, Monkey Junk, Jerry Doucette, Super Chikan, and many more.
