Nanoose Community Services (NCS) and Knox United Church

This special event is all about supporting two essential pillars of the Oceanside community: Nanoose Community Services (NCS) and Knox United Church. These two organizations are committed to making a difference in the lives of their neighbours.

NCS is a community-based charitable organization with the motto, “neighbours helping neighbours.” We run various programs, including a food and basic necessities program, emergency services, education initiatives, and the heartwarming holiday Elf program. NCS is dedicated to creating a stronger, more caring community by lending a helping hand when it’s needed the most.

Knox United Church is also deeply involved in community support and outreach. Together with NCS, they aim to create a profound impact on the lives of those who need assistance. By attending this event, you are directly contributing to these incredible causes.

Barney Bentall & The Cariboo Express

The real highlight of the evening is the unforgettable performance by Barney Bentall & The Cariboo Express. This is no ordinary concert – it’s a one-of-a-kind variety show hosted by Barney Bentall himself. With a cast of up to seventeen talented performers, including artists like Matt Masters, Ridley Bent, Dustin Bentall, Wendy Bird, Geoff Kelly of Spirit of the West, Geoff Hicks, Kirby Barber, and the incredible backing band, The Gold Rush Allstars, you’re in for a musical treat like no other.

Each year, The Cariboo Express also hosts a special guest musician as part of the show. Past performers have included some legendary names like Jim Cuddy of Blue Rodeo, Neil Osborne of 54-40, Daniel Lapp, Leeroy Stagger, Kendall Carson, and the late John Mann of Spirit of the West. The stage will be bursting with talent and charisma, promising a night that will be talked about for years to come.

So, mark your calendars, secure your tickets, and join the Nanoose Community for an evening of music, unity, and giving back. Your presence at the Barney Bentall & The Cariboo Express concert will not only create lasting memories but also help strengthen the bonds of this incredible community.
