Jon Rehder is having his musical cake this summer.

And he’s getting to eat it, too.

That’s because, after years of being a back-up musician with Canadian bands he’s getting to perform his own songs during Live at the Loft, the third annual summer music series at Barnone Brewery in Rose Valley, P.E.I. on Friday nights.

“I don’t want to go on the road, but I’d like to make a living playing music. I also love to play with people.”

 And, with this summer series he gets to do both.

“The audience gets variety. I get to play with other people as well as my own songs. So, it’s the best of both worlds.”

The series kicked off June 28 with Rachel Beck. 

The Barnone Brewery is located at 4248, Route 225. Admission is at the door. A food truck will be on site next week. Picnic tables will be available. For information, call 902-394-6897.
