The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT -

Phase II and Friends will take the stage at Sum­mer­side’s Trin­ity United Church on the af­ter­noon of May 20 for a con­cert called Here Comes Sum­mer.

The group prom­ises two hours of lively, up­lift­ing mu­sic cov­er­ing a wide range of tastes from rock n’ roll to coun­try to gospel.

The seven-piece group is made up of the orig­i­nal Phase II band with the ad­di­tion of Keila Gly­don and Jeanie Camp­bell.

“These ladies add a whole new di­men­sion to the band,’’ said Gerry Hickey, lead singer. “There are so many songs fea­tur­ing fe­male vo­cal­ists which we are able to cover now. It gives our per­for­mances an even broader range. When they aren’t singing lead they both add great har­mony to all of our songs.’’

The band also boasts an­other re­cent ad­di­tion in Ed Young, a drum­mer who hails from Sault St. Marie, Ont.

This par­tic­u­lar show will fea­ture some sum­mer tunes by the Beach Boys, the Everly Broth­ers and Clint Black. The au­di­ence will also hear songs from artists such as Sonny and Cher, Tom Jones, Johnny Reid, Dolly Par­ton and Kenny Rogers.

Doors open at 1 p.m. with mu­sic be­gin­ning at 2 p.m.

Ad­vance tick­ets are $10 and are avail­able at the church of­fice by calling 902-436-3155 or by calling Wen­dell at 902-4368600 or $12 at the door.
