Platinum Blonde, Sloan headline Surrey’s Canada Day party

July 1 entertainment lineup announced for free all-day party in Cloverdale.

Remember these guys? Platinum Blonde (shown in a more recent photo at left) will headline this year’s free Canada Day celebration in Cloverdale.

Surrey will have the chance to take a patriotic trip back to the 80s when rock legends Platinum Blonde take the stage at Canada Day celebrations July 1.

The Juno Award-winning band – which rocketed to stardom three decades ago with hits like Doesn’t Really Matter and Standing in the Dark – is one of a lineup of Canadian acts scheduled to perform at Cloverdale’s Millennium Amphitheatre.

Also headlining is the Toronto-based indie-punk band Sloan (at bottom of page), with music from its 20-year, 10-album tenure.

Country fans will get their fix from the sounds of singer Crystal Shawanda, while Peak Performance Project winners, pop-rock duo Dear Rouge (Drew and Danielle McTaggart) promise to have everyone up dancing.

Surrey band Good for Grapes will also bring their signature “folk stomp” energy to stage, as will cover band Aerosmith Rocks.

Kids’ performers will also entertain throughout the day, as will the Surrey Celebration Dance Team and many other performers.

Surrey’s free Canada Day party takes place at 176 Street and 64 Avenue, from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
