NOW Excited to offer Live Performances to Socially Distanced, Outdoor Only, less than 50 people events! 

Commotion on the Ocean

 Going Live!

5:30 pm, Aug 1

Excited to announce our series of

boat-in mini-concerts around Gambier Island

on Saturday, August 1st.

Celebrate the 20th Anniversary

of Commotion by the Ocean.


This year for everyone's safety, we're asking you to "Stay in Your Bay". With Andy Harper at the helm and Bobby Bruce onboard, we will bring the Good Times to you with three boat-in locations.


Whether you "Party in Your Yard-y" with family and friends, have a "Beach Bubble Boogie" with your nearest and dearest, "Rock the Dock" or "Float Your Boat", we've got you covered in West Bay, Gambier Harbour or New Brighton.


Commotion ON the Ocean 2020 allows us to socially distance, celebrate our great Gambier times and fortify that we are in this together.


This is a COVID-19 aware event. Please be kind to each other and respect all BC health safety measures.


Show your Gambier Spirit by supporting the Gambier Community Centre Society, buy tickets and enjoy the show safely.

Starting in mid-June, and in continuing response to what is currently safe and advisable, we are offering live outdoor in-person performances in the Greater Vancouver Area and the Sunshine Coast.  Nearly Neil Solo as well as the Solitary Band are available for bookings to socially distanced groups of less than 50 people. 


We support #staysafe #stayhome so we are responding by also offering online performances. We will soon be announcing a series of online concerts appearing on a variety of platforms.

You may book Nearly Neil to Zoombomb an online party or pretape a video message for a special occasion, book a private online show on request, or buy tickets for a live-streamed performance.

We miss you and hope to see you online and in-person soon.

It will be great to connect again.
