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 “Gambier Band”
"Commotion by the Ocean" is an outdoor concert on Gambier Island, proceeds assist community projects. The concert venue is a large field, surrounded by giant trees, which provide amazing acoustics for live outdoor music. Full facilities are available, including a beer, wine and food concessions. This year for the 10th anniversary concert souvenir t-shirts and hats are available as well. The venue is a short walk from the B.C. Ferries stop at the New Brighton wharf.
