Make your way over to Steeple Street for another spectacular night of live music featuring a wide genre of SteamPunk inspired music followed by Lovecraftian-inspired music! At WaterFire, we like to mix it up!
Beginning at 6:oo Steampunk musicians Frenchy & the Punk, a lively duo that takes the stage following their performance at Old Stone Bank.
At 6:30 the Sultans of Sax will take over the stage. This eight-piece ensemble of saxophonists specialize in the “golden era” of music of the early 1900’s.
At 7:30, local dancer and gal about town, Kristen Minsky presents her dancing troupe, TropiGals, regularly found in her show she produces called Chifferobe.
Be sure to stop by from 8-9pm where you will be treated to the sounds of Big Nazo Band.
Also featured on the Steeple Street Stage, curated by NecronomiCon, we present Darkest of the Hillside Thickets, a Lovecraft-themed band hailing from Vancouver, as well as Difference Engine from Boston. WaterFire invites you to join us for some great local music and dancing in the streets.

Sultans of Sax: The Sultans of Sax is an eight piece saxophone ensemble which plays a wide variety of classical and popular jazz music from the early 1900’s through today. We are a unique musical ensemble dedicated to performing music from the vaudeville era and early jazz age, considered by many to be the “golden age” of the saxophone. Many of our musical arrangements are the actual arrangements that were performed by travelling saxophone groups over 90 years ago. Virtually all members of the saxophone instrument family are represented in our group — from the mighty bass saxophone to the tiny sopranino to the uncommonly heard C melody saxophone.
Darkest of the Hillside Thickets: Hailing all the way from Vancouver, BC, just to perform at the Lovecraft Convention, Darkest of the Hillside Thickets is a rock band dedicated to promoting the literature of H.P. Lovecraft, the author who wrote of lost cities, tainted genealogy, alien gods, and that fabled tome, & The NecronomiCon. The Thickets haven’t been able to get their hands on the ancient spell book, but they have their own brand of corruption. They’re on a Lovecraft binge of madness, and they mean to take you with them. The Darkest of the Hillside Thickets have a reputation for entrancing and inciting their live audiences with their melodic blend of energetic punk and rock, while wearing graphic costumes that help bring their good-natured, yet macabre songs to life. Their latest project is “The Shadow Out of Tim” concept album, a re-imagining of Lovecraft’s short story “The Shadow Out of Time.” The Darkest of the Hillside Thickets live in Vancouver, Abbotsford, and Chilliwack.
Big Nazo Creature Band: Have you see the Big Nazo Creature Band perform? These local hometown freaky creatures are frequently seen around town at special events but seeing them perform on stage is a treat for everyone!
