Darby Mills and the Headpins return to Langley for a show at Cascades' Summit Theatre on Thursday night.

CONTEST: Darby Mills celebrates birthday in Langley

Rock and roll band Headpins come to Cascades Casino to perform classic hits Thursday night, with a pair of lucky Langley Advance readers.

That smooth growling yell indicative of classic rockers, Headpins, is coming to Langley for the first time in a few years.

The woman behind the sultry voice with a vast range is Darby Mills and the band’s front-woman will be celebrating her birthday at the concert tonight (Dec. 3) at Cascades Casino.

“One of the West Coast’s most energetic and magnetic live groups, the Headpins have an incomparable chemistry with their audience, making them one of the hottest commodities in Canadian rock,” said Rob Warwick of Rock-It Boy Entertainment, the show promoter.

Headpins was founded in the Lower Mainland in the 1970s and started making traction with audiences in Vancouver in the early 1980s when the group’s album made platinum in 1982 on the popularity of hit song, Don’t it Make Ya Feel. Expect this classic song and others to be performed by the group Thursday.

“Fronted by Darby Mills, whose signature growl is matched only by her purr, the band has produced such hits as Turn It Loud, one of the greatest rock anthems of all time! Other ear-twisting tracks include Don’t It Make Ya Feel, the killer Breakin’ Down,  People, the power ballad Winnin’, Just One More Time , Don’t Stand In The Line Of Fire, Mine All Mine,” “I Know What You’re Thinking, Celebration, Feel It, Still The One, Death Of Me , the sleeper hit (You’re Only) Afraid Of The Dark, along with Be With You, Chain Gang, and the powerful The Danger Zone.

Tickets for the show are $42.50 from casino guest services, order by phone at 604-530-2211, or through www.ticketweb.ca. doors open at 7 p.m. for this classic rock birthday celebration.

One lucky winner will be front and centre for this birthday bash, Cascades’ style.
