Don Amero - ‘Behind the Veil’ Residency at the WECC (Night 1)

Experience the creative process with Don and his band as they get ready for a slew of summer shows. Behind the Veil is a great opportunity to see how the band gets it all together!

It's not exactly a show, but more of a relaxed hang with Don and the band. We guarantee something new, fun and possibly hilarious as they figure out their set.

If you're interested in seeing how this band figures it all out (or “makes the sausage” as they say) then this will be a fun evening you'll enjoy.

Don and his band will be here at the West End Cultural Centre every Wednesday night 7:30pm - 10pm throughout the month of May. You're invited to come down and have a cold one with the band and watch as they put the show together!
