The Ryga Festival is joining with the Summerland Community Arts Council to sponsor Blue City Trio as the final concert in its very popular Wednesdays on the Water concert series, now renamed Wednesday in the Park, and relocated to Memorial Park due to earlier flooding of Okanagan Lake.  

Blue City Trio is a Kelowna-based musical trio that have been entertaining Okanagan audiences for over 15 years. Blue City has developed a hard-earned reputation as one of Kelowna’s finest professional musical acts – covering a spectrum of musical styles from classic rock and pop, to jazz, latin, country and world music.

Blue City consists of:

  • Sergei Ryga – Keys/Sax/Vocals
  • Tom Esson – Guitar & Vocals
  • Dan Marcelino - Drums/Percussion/Vocals

Blue City Trio: Sergei, Dan, and Tom.Blue City Trio: Sergei, Dan, and Tom.

Tom and Sergei have been playing in bands together since high school (Summerland Senior Secondary), forming Blue City as a duo 1997. After making the decision to expand to a trio, they brought aboard the very gifted Dan Marcelino to cover drums, percussion, and harmony vocals.   An award winning drummer and multi-instrumentalist, he is also owner of DMA Studios in Lake Country, BC.    

This band's versatility and professionalism has made Blue City one of the busiest and in-demand musical acts in the BC Interior.
