The Hope Legion presents Rockin’ Country New Year’s Eve Party on Dec. 31 featuring the Merv Tremblay Band.

At the age of 14, Tremblay received his first guitar and was hooked on the country sounds of The Everly Brothers, Roy Orbison, Merle Haggard and Waylon Jennings. Tremblay has been entertaining crowds at various venues for almost 30 years. His hit singles include “She’s So Sweet,” “Dance With You,” and “Wish You Were Here.” Tickets to the show are $25 a person and are available by calling 604-869-5465, 604-869-9942, or at the Legion Lounge.
