White Rock-based Blake Havard live stream set for May 28

Veteran singer-songwriter to showcase new music in paid online concert

White Rock-based live-streaming event producer BEC Entertainnent continues its series of Friday Night Specials with a May 28 show by singer-songwriter Blake Havard. (8p.m., Pacific time).

The Alberta-raised, B.C.-based writer/producer/recording artist has put together a program highlighting his most recent music, including the single Bad For Me.

As a man with a long track-record creating some of the best indie rock in the Vancouver scene, Havard has earned the respect of many in the industry, and had no trouble persuading members of Bob Dylan’s band, Bryan Adams’ band and The Odds to lend their talents to the project.

The final result was mixed by noted producer Mike Fraser, shortly after completing AC/DC’s latest album,

The program is available to the local home audience as a live-stream for a $10 event price, through the following link: https://www.onviva.live/en/channel/bec/c/blake-havard-friday-may-28th-2021-800pm-pacific.776
