The White Rock Blues Society


The Beatmerchant Links with WRBS

At the suggestion of one of our White Rock Blues Society members I went to Steveston to meet Frankie Neilson the owner of The Beatmerchant located at #160 12240 2nd Ave & Bayview. The store is a blues fan’s dream of a place. Not since New Orleans have I seen a better collection of CDs, Books, DVD’s, vinyl records and assorted music memorabilia. Unlike our local HMV they have plenty of blues music items and are willing to put up our event posters. Frankie has a wealth of knowledge about music and one of his services is to track down items you can’t get anywhere. He has signed on as one of our sponsors and will be helping us promote our shows. With the weather getting better everyday I can’t think of a better way to spend the afternoon visiting the Steveston pier and walking across the street to meet Frankie at The Beatmerchant. Tell him a blues buff recommended him.
