February 15, 2013, Courtenay, BC (ISN) – This Saturday night the Comox Valley Glacier Kings will host ‘Fan Appreciation Night’. It’s the last regular season home game, and the ‘Kings will host the Nanaimo Buccaneers.

There will be prizes, on ice activities and the team will be available for autographs post game.

On Monday, February 18th, two Comox Valley Glacier Kings will perform an acoustic show at Yiamas.

Defenseman Patrick Croome and Brook Trainor, a forward, will perform a variety of acoustic songs ranging from Blue Rodeo, to Mumford and Sons, the Beatles and even Canadian music icon Neil Young.

Croome has been performing music since the age of three, “I have been on stage doing venues all over Calgary with my dad and my uncle since I was 3 years old believe it or not. I’ve been singing for as long as I can remember. It was a big part of my family and childhood. My parents put me in piano lessons at 5 years old and I took lessons under Royal Conservatory for 10 years, making it to grade 7. In grade 6 I managed to teach myself the guitar from a chart I got for Christmas showing me finger positions. The motivation for learning the guitar was a project that I had to do on a famous person for English class, I picked Elvis Presley and for bonus points, sang and played my first song on the guitar in public, Love Me Tender.”

Yiamas will have a menu prepared for the event. There is no cover charge.
