On Saturday, May 14, 2011, the Museum hosted the first annual Blues Over the Valley fundraiser – an evening of flying, food, fun and music. Festivities got under way with a flying demonstration by the Fraser Blues formation team. What a great way to start things rolling for the 100 attendees at this “blues” event. The Memphis Blues Barbeque House served up a delicious assortment of food and Langley’s very own Domaine de Chaberton Estate Winery provided a fine selection of excellent wines. The main event for the evening was an amazing performance by award-winning blues musician, James T. Byrnes. He and his four-piece blues band rocked the hangar from 8 – 10 pm and treated the patrons to a most entertaining and enjoyable concert. The dance floor was full for most of the concert, further reinforcing the wonderful music coming from the musicians. A good time was had by all and we look forward to the second annual blues gala to help promote and support the Museum.
