   P & G AfterHours
   Saturday, Aug. 24 - Bill LaVoie. This prolific songwriter mixes acoustic rock, folk, country and blues into a diverse style.

Life is kind, life is cruel, and since one defines the other, Bill LaVoie gives you both. P & G is located at 15614 Main St., Duvall, across the street from the public library.
