Your health and safety is of the utmost importance. In partnership with local health departments and government guidelines, Chinook Musical Society will monitor local COVID-19 trends and determine if health checks and/or masking will be required to attend a show. In some instances, we may choose to exceed protocols mandated by local governments. Please check this page regularly for updates as guidelines are subject to change.
Though there may not be a mandatory mask requirement at any given time, we respect your right and choice to continue to wear a mask if you wish and ask that those in attendance do so in the same accord.
In the event that a concert must be cancelled due to a government mandate, full credit will be issued for future shows.

Operated by an elected volunteer Board of Directors, the Society does not have paid staff but rather, relies fully on club volunteers to stage our concert season. Volunteers handle every aspect of the show operations; from planning the show bookings to preparing food and liquor for concession, setting up tables and cleaning up. We are often looking for volunteers for specific duties for both the season and individual events.
Our House Band...The Beagle Boys
They’ve been making music together for the better part of two
decades. During that time the five piece folk/roots band from Calgary
has won a large and loyal following across the West.
In large part that is due to the band’s unique ability to shift
seamlessly from one style and genre of music to another.
As a result, any “Beagles” show is bound to include some country,
a dash of gospel, a sampling of rockin’ blues, two or three original
tunes, a dose of bluegrass and even the odd jazz styling.
This flexibility is the result of the musical virtuosity displayed by
keyboardist Guy Plecash, multi-instrumentalist Fred Mallette,
guitarist Phil Whitburn, drummer Dr. Bill and bassist Charles Frank.
Led by its four lead singers, the band offers up shimmering vocal harmonies that complement its multi-faceted musical stylings and the entertaining, humorous stage show that is a hallmark of all Beagle Boys engagements.
Having honed their talents in a number of seminal western Canadian bands like Village Paint, Prairie Crossing, Polkageist, The Joy Riders, and Legend, these highly regarded musicians proceeded to join forces in The Beagle Boys, and the rest as they say, is musical history.
Best known for their ongoing gig as the houseband at the legendary Saturday Night Special music club in Calgary where they have shared the stage with acts as diverse as Ian Tyson, Shari Ulrich, Lunch at Allen’s and Eric Bibb, The Beagle Boys are equally at home on festival stages, in intimate concert venues or laying down a contagious dance beat at commercial engagements.
Their CD, The Beagle Boys, Live at the Saturday Night Special, is a must listen for anyone who enjoys original and classic roots music.
