On Sunday, Dec. 2, the Langley Banquet Centre in Aldergrove will play host to one of Canada’s most beloved maestros, the legendary Dal Richards.

“I’m delighted to be coming back to Aldergrove,” said Richards, who will be bringing his orchestra to town for an afternoon of 30s, 40s, 50s and 60s era tunes.

“After 80 years in the music business, I’ve done a tea dance or two and always enjoy seeing new faces in the crowd,” he said.

“Besides, I have to keep playing — doctor’s orders.”

This coming January, Richards will celebrate his 95th birthday.

“We are so blessed and grateful to be sharing a very special afternoon with one of my dearest friends,” said Annette McArthur, who is organizing the event. “I’m half his age and twice as tired. I don’t know how he does it.”

Whether you are young or old, don’t miss the chance to dance to the sounds of Dal Richards and his Orchestra.

Tickets are $32 or $250 for a table of eight at Aldergrove Enterprise Centre, Unit 4, 3227-264 St.

For more information on the event, contact Aldergrove Enterprise Centre at 604-607-5607 or email at aldergrovepr@gmail.com.

Concert starts at 2 p.m. at the Langley Banquet Centre, 3227 264 St.
