Hats Off Day 2019: Entertainment Guide

Hats Off Day 2019: Entertainment Guide

Join us for Burnaby’s biggest street festival! From Gamma Avenue to Boundary Road, Hastings Street will be filled with excitement, live music, street performers, delicious food, kids’ activities, and lots more.



Disco Funeral

12:30 p.m.

Disco Funeral is eclectic, eccentric, energetic and always entertaining : from their signature blend of dark funk and sing-a-long catchiness to down-tempo psychedelia and travelling gypsy madness, this is one party (or “service”) you definitely don’t want to miss! When’s the last time you laughed, cried, head-banged and danced all at the same time?

Silver Brothers

2:00 p.m.

Ken Shirley and Robert Stewart (a.k.a. The Silver Brothers) have been writing and performing together for over thirty years.

They are natural story tellers and their folk style of music reflects this. From surviving in the downtown east side of Vancouver (“Pass the Bottle”) to the hot and humid nights travelling through the US South (“Mississippi Nights”), the Silver Brothers songs are both vivid in imagery and melodies.

On the side, both Ken and Robert are also currently members of the Burnaby, B.C.-based classic rock band “Rainshadow” .

Chloe Farrell

3:00 p.m.

Vancouver based singer/songwriter and musician Chloe Farrell has been playing and creating music from a very young age.  

With her completion of The Royal conservatory of music in piano, signing several original songs and performing at festivals, private events, restaurants and bars, she knows how to bring a unique twist to covers and her own light on original music.
