Berry takes it the next level with an impressive schedule featuring many different genres
Everything about Osborne Bay Pub’s ambition to serve as the Cowichan Valley’s live music destination by owner Tony van de Mortel, manager and Berry Music Co. owner Patricia Berry and executive chef Philippe Lavoie is tastefully done.
The food prepared by Lavoie and staff (see story A3) is one incredible aspect, but the approach of providing a great venue to whet the appetite of live music lovers is truly commendable in this day and age when few establishments are doing it. The musicians, of course, love it and can’t say enough about the opportunity it gives them while audiences are lapping up the energy and find it’s great value for their entertainment dollar.
Music later in the evening doesn’t affect people coming for dinner to check out the new menu.
Berry is the visionary behind the music. She came on board in March and immediately went to work putting her plan into action.
