The show goes on
Charlie Fraser will be missed at the Kaylee Hall
On Saturday, the regular weekly Pig n’ Whistle at the Kaylee Hall will take place with one major change - Charlie Fraser, long-time owneroperator of this community establishment, won’t be there to greet folks at the door.
Fraser died this past week and his family members, who have helped their dad with this business venture for many years, have decided to continue a long tradition of providing various forms of entertainment at this excellent facility.
Fraser’s funeral service, which was held on Monday, featured music by people who have been playing at the hall for years.
Eddy Quinn, who has probably done more shows than anyone else at this venue, performed two of his favourite songs, while Phase II band members Blaine Murphy, Pat King and Gerry Hickey rendered Hallelujah.
It was a time filled with music and fond memories, and all of the musicians felt honoured to be a part of it.
In the entertainment world, they say “the show must go on”, and in response to the family’s request, Phase II will again take the stage on Saturday, 8-11 p.m., playing a mixture of rock ’n’ roll, country and party tunes.
They’ll be sure to do a few of Fraser’s favourites as well. Doors open at 7:15 p.m.
“Charlie Fraser was and is a part of the fabric of this area of Prince Edward Island,” says Hickey.
“He was a great communityinded person with a big heart, a wonderful sense of humour and a gift for being kind. The Kaylee Hall will continue to operate, as the Fraser children seem to have inherited many of their father’s fine qualities. I’m sure they will want to continue the tradition established by their dad.”
