ARMSTRONG – Whitesand First Nation is celebrating Homecoming. On Thursday night, BonJorney from Thunder Bay was the featured entertainment. Following a tasty feast, the band took the stage to entertain the audience.
Playing a selection of Bon Jovi and Journey tunes, Bonjourney thrilled the audience.
Earnest guitar licks, fantastic keyboard and skillful drumming combined with great sound made for a night that the community will remember.
The crew traveled up to Armstrong onboard a Kasper Mini Bus. The Kasper Mini Bus is very seriously looking at establishing bus service from Thunder Bay to Armstrong with stops at Gull Bay First Nation along the way.
From Bonjourney, the classic songs were enjoyed by young and old alike. The sound in the Whitesand Curling Club presented a challenge that was well met by the team. The concert was very professional.
There are 700 members living on reserve in Whitesand First Nation and another 700 who are living off reserve.
