The Coldstream Coffee House returns for the new year with a feature act that should tantalize both regulars and those visiting for the first time.

The monthly coffee house, which takes place this Saturday at the Coldstream Women’s Institute Hall, is presenting the band Tantalys as its feature act for the evening.

“(They are) a great group with great energy,” said Rory White, one of the coffee house organizers. “There is no shortage of experience and talent within its members.”

The group consists of Charlie Veaudry on lead vocals and bass, lead guitarist Tom Chernenkoff, and guitarist Gerhard Traxel (rhythm and lead).

Gerhard’s wife, Connie Traxel, takes care of the percussion and back-up vocals.

“This act will tantalize you with their versions of classic rock, country and blues flavours,” said White. “There will be the usual open mic format before the band’s performance. Come out and enjoy a great evening of live entertainment in a nice, cozy, family-friendly atmosphere.”

Admission to Saturday’s Coldstream Coffee House is $4 at the door, with a concession of refreshments and baked goodies available by donation. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with the show beginning at 7 p.m.
