“Life isn’t a dress rehearsal, it’s the real deal,” Machura said as he kicked off the hour-and-a-half gig.

Machura was joined by friends and top-drawer local musicians Kerry Hutter (bass/vocals) and Bruce Collis (percussion/vocals). Together they will play an engaging mix of original and classic songs.

Marv Machura and Friends will also rock Lumby in the Park July 11 at 7 p.m.

“Expect to hear some great vocal harmonies and jam rhythms from this group,” Machura said. “I’m excited about this arrangement: together we weave a fantastic groove.”
