Kelly Waters says, “Hey, all supporters of live music and the local arts scene. There are a variety of interesting if not amazing live entertainment events upcoming at SHE-NANIGANS. If you are not familiar with this venue, it's located at 792 - 108th St. on a corner near the south side of the playground of Connaught School. Before it was this venue, it was the Slava Ukrainian Social Hall and before that the building was the Kinsmen Band Hall (see the wall with signatures from back in the day by the men's washroom)!
"We have a small professional stage and one-of-a-kind inspired ambience sure to capture your imagination. Many people come for supper before the show … some people snack during the event. Yes, we have a liquor licence and bar that features Saskatchewan spirits and brews often using fresh juice in the cocktails. The creative curated menu features numerous Saskatchewan products and accommodates more dietary needs.
“Tickets can be purchased online at https://www.she-nanigans.net/ or calling Glennda at (306)481-5474. Sometimes tickets are available at the door but don't count on it for events as Jake Vaadeland this Saturday night.”
