Although Tea à Tempo, the concert series in All Saints by-the-Sea, is now into its monthly programming, the Music Makers team has scheduled an extra performance this month, welcoming the return of two popular local musicians, David Storm (left) and Bill Morrison (right). The postponement of their scheduled concert in August proved disappointing to their many fans, so their appearance on Wednesday, September 20th will be a treat. When the pair met a few years ago, they discovered a shared joy in playing music together. Since Bill was 70 and David was about to turn 70 at the time they met, they called themselves the "270's"!

David Storm has been the Organist, Pianist and Music Director for the Anglican Parish of Salt Spring Island for almost 15 years. Since moving to Salt Spring from Vancouver in 2005, he has participated in numerous Music & Munch and Tea à Tempo concerts over the years. David has played gigs at Meadowbrook, Greenwoods, Heritage Place and Lady Minto Hospital Intensive Care Unit with a number of different musicians. He was the Accompanist for the Salt Spring Singers Choir for 5 years.
Victoria native, Bill Morrison, was Lead Singer of the eight-piece R&B Dance Band "Backstage Betty" for 10 years. Over the past few years, Bill has continued to perform with the "Jukebox Junkies".
When Bill and David got together just as COVID hit, they started with a plan to play the music of Elton John and Billy Joel. While Wednesday's audience will still hear Elton John and Billy Joel, their repertoire now also includes artists such as Fleetwood Mac, Paul Simon, The Eagles, Mark Knopfler and Bruce Springsteen. Bill is happy to be the singer as David looks after all accompaniment on his new Roland RD-2000 digital piano.
Patrons should note that the cool temperature and warm ambiance of All Saints by-the-Sea Anglican Church is the perfect place to be on hot summer days!
Concert begins at 2:10pm. Donations provide the honoraria for performers and contribute to the running of the Tea à Tempo series.
Tea and Treats, for $4.00, will be served immediately following the concert in the hall overlooking Ganges Harbour.
So bring a friend or visitor to the Island, enjoy some excellent music by these two seasoned local performers, and then have a delicious treat afterwards.
Food, friends, and music! What more could you ask for? Hope to see you there.
