Commotion by the Ocean

We really appreciate all of you that supported this event over the past ten years,

it has been a great run, and a ton of fun!

"Commotion" will take some time off, we all need a break!


2010 was the best year ever, thanks to the great line-up of bands ... a tough year to follow!

Over the past ten years we have supported the local Community, including:

Gambier Island Community Centre Society

A.N.A. Vets  P.C.M.R. #276

Happy Cat Haven

Gambier Island Emergency oxygen and stretcher

Community Centre Marquee Tent, portable stage & lighting



Thank-you to all that attended last summer, all 1,000 of you!

The weather was perfect, and the music was great with thanks to

Nearly Neil and Abba Cadabra, plus special thanks to the "Hot Moonbeams"
