Live Music: Jam with the Valley Cats


Event Details

This event is running from 26 February 2023 until 26 May 2024. It is next occurring on April 28, 2024 7:00 pm

Jam with the Valley Cats


To make things more enjoyable for the audience and musicians,  the pub has moved away from the old format.

From now on, the last Sunday of each month (watch for exceptions) offers an opportunity for musicians to play with the house band, the Valley Cats.

If you are looking for such an opportunity,  take the following steps:

  1. Email the Pub’s Music Director, Larry Newman, at to determine dates and times available for you.
  2. When you have been given your date and time, reply with a list of the 3 or 4 songs you wish to perform with the band. Please include the actual key you play them in.  Do this as many days ahead of time as possible.
  3. If you play an instrument make sure it can be properly amplified and is in good playing order. Make sure it is properly tuned  before you play.(We will assist you with this if needed.)
  4. Practice your songs with an emphasis on the tune and song structure…YouTube is a good resource for this.
  5. On the appointed night, please show up no later than 6 pm.

If you need help with any of the aforementioned, contact Larry at the above email address.

This new format will require all participants to play with the Valley Cats and we will not entertain any exceptions.

We are all looking forward to playing with both familiar and new (to us) musicians alike.  We look forward to hearing from you.

The Valley Cats are the Horsethief Pub and Eatery’s house band.  The band is comprised of local musicians, many of whom you have enjoyed in the past, both at the Pub and up and down the Columbia Valley.

Live Music at the Horsethief
