Three Wide Men headline Friday’s show at Oak Bay United Church

Cabaret features a myriad of performers headlined by Three Wide Men Friday

The Oak Bay Cabaret goes Irish this month with a rollicking show to celebrate St. Paddy’s day.

“Wear your green, sing along, clap, stomp and laugh with this fun show,” said producer Jim Ricks.

Three Wide Men headlines an evening of fabulous performers including The Coastline Quartet from the Coastline Celtic Music Band, Stuart Nemtin and Sally Glover, Mike Fenger, Gordon Miller, Michael Majocha and Robin Alexander.

The monthly Oak Bay Cabaret, organized by 13 volunteers, celebrates its second year next month with audiences now reaching 80 to 90 patrons.

“The performers love being in front of this audience, which is welcoming and responsive,” said Ricks. “The open stage has been the first time for many performers. It’s also been visited by the seasoned ones.”

Previous featured performers include well-known artists such as West My Friend, Ceilidh Briscoe, Oliver Swain, Tim Rogers, Mike Demers, Stephanie Grieves, May Brown and The Carolina Bluebirds.

Doors open at 7 p.m. on March 20 with the show at 7:30 at Oak Bay United Church hall, corner of Mitchell and Granite streets. Admission is $5. Visit for updates.

Anyone interested in performing should contact Jim Ricks at 250-383-4001 or
