Alberni’s Golden Tones reunite

Alberni crooners the Golden Tones are reuniting this weekend to raise money for Ty Watson House and the Bread of Life.

Back in the day, the Golden Tones were in demand: if someone had a wedding, anniversary or birthday party, they were the go-to entertainment.

A few members came and went, but the stalwarts remained, playing variously from 1958 until the late 1980s.

The guys will reunite on Friday, Nov. 25 from 8 p.m. to 12 a.m. at the Italian Hall for a charity fundraiser for the Ty Watson House hospice and Bread of Life.

Tickets are $10 each and available at Miller’s Place or by calling Al Nelson at 250-724-1097 or Ray Phillips at 250-723-9620.
