The Kootenay Lakeview Lodge in Balfour is trying to recapture the magic of what has become known as the best outdoor concert of 2011.

Revolver, the greatest Beatles tribute band according to radio icon Red Robinson, will be back in the Kootenays on July 6.

The Vancouver band covers the three decades of music with four costume changes. Band members Mike Sicoli, Mick Dalla Vee, Rocket Norton on drums and Skip Prest are all experienced professionals capturing the music so well you truly can close your eyes and be transported back in time.

This year will be even bigger and better claims owner of the Kootenay Lakeview Lodge Reg Clarkson.

The Nelson Grizzlies Rugby Club have stepped up to present the show this year and will benefit from an outdoor beer garden they will host on site.

Clarkson said that was not available to them last year and will be a great improvement to an already great party.

Nelson Grizzlies board member Brian Garvin Jr. who attended last years show with his family said, “When we had the opportunity to participate in this event it was a no brainer for our club. The show last year was unbelievable from the music itself to the beautiful setting so for us to be able to benefit and make the event even better we can’t wait.”

“Being able to offer three distinct experiences is what makes this venue so unique,” adds Clarkson.

“We have the ability to offer a dinner seat complete with reserved table seating, festival seating for the kids, families and those that want to get close to the band, and the ‘skybox’ experience from the balconies of the hotel rooms. Nobody has what we have for live music. Last year when the moon crawled up over the mountains as the band played Let it Be, well I still get goose bumps.”
