Shuswap music lovers will have a wonderful opportunity to dance in the new year to one of the best rock and roll bands in the region, Paisley Groove.

The event is sponsored by the Shuswap String Orchestra Society and will be at the Elks Hall in Salmon Arm, with the doors open at 8 p.m.

The festivities will begin with a special movie-themed concert performed by members of the string orchestra, with Gord Waters conducting.

In addition to the live music, there will be a silent auction to help raise funds for the orchestra and midnight snacks.

The Shuswap String Orchestra has been active for 12 years, performing locally for special events.

The orchestra began as part of the School District #83 music program and has since developed into an independent string ensemble under the direction of Brenden Majarich. They play a variety of classical pieces and recently formed a non-profit society to help create new musical opportunities.

Paisley Groove is from Kamloops and features David Langevin on guitar and vocals, Myron Rosvick on bass guitar, Doug Goodman on keyboard and vocals, Lyle Shepard on drums and Pat Ebert on percussion.

They perform a variety of tunes ranging from songs by the Beatles and the Doors to Santana.

Tickets for the New Years Eve party are available at Acorn Music or by phoning 832-8669.
