New event company hopes music event will fill entertainment "void"

Bathurst man is looking to capitalize on the upcoming Xtreme Downhill ice-cross event to help fill what he calls a void at the KC Irving Centre.

Dale Knowles feels the facility is under-used so he's formed an event company with hopes that thousand expected to attend CCNB's Crashed Ice event will take advantage of a show headlined by popular east-coast band Signal Hill.

Local rockers Certified will open up the Friday, February 24th show.

Knowles expects people from all over north-eastern New Brunswick to attend.

The company expects to put on two shows each year.
