2014 Tim Hortons Brier Band Profiles
“The Chevelles” live rock n’ roll performances have been entertaining cities and communities across Canada for well over 12 years. Every show they create is aimed at making each party a night to remember, and filling the dance floor with universally appreciated hits from the dawning of rock n’ roll and each unique decade afterwards.
A favourite from Season of Champions events throughout the past few years, Alberta born & farm raised, Trevor Panczak is more than just a singer/songwriter. He is a captivating country entertainer. His laid back humour, smooth voice and charming stage presence are a great fit for any venue. This gentle giant has been playing country music for more than half his life and for 10 years with his six-piece band Rough Stock. As the native of Magrath builds his reputation as an artist, Trevor is making Alberta his own backyard.
Big River Band
David James is as close as you’ll ever come to witnessing a performance by the late, great Johnny Cash. Even the most discerning fans will concede that James and the Big River Band presents an homage to one of the world’s most recognized icons that is profoundly believable.
Shred Kelly is a formulation of friends and foot stomping good times born in the East Kootenay’s of British Columbia. Hailing from the town of Fernie, the five-piece band is best known for mixing clawhammer banjo riffs that tear the fabric of space and time with ambient synth, high voltage guitar, fierce drums and hauntingly sweet vocal harmonies to produce a sound that has been properly coined “Stoke Folk”.
Three-time CCMA award winner Shane Chisholm has become a tour de force, performing around the globe sharing his passion for music and the ungentle art of show business. Be it BMX style acrobatic tricks on the Upright Gas Tank Bass to chanting anthems back and forth with an unsuspecting audience, Shane will have your attention from the beginning till the end.
Cod Gone Wild
Cod Gone Wild is a Modern Celtic band, based out of the Okanagan Valley of beautiful British Columbia, Canada. The “Cods” have melded veteran musicians from diverse musical backgrounds such as folk, rock, jazz, classical and funk to create a modern Celtic sound with driving rhythms and tight vocal harmonies.
From Patsy Cline to Lady Gaga – an incredible ride through 50 years of rock/pop music. Relive those memories with the enormously talented March Hare. Experience the early days of rock, The Beatles, Motown, Freedom Rock, the Glam 70s, Disco, the fun bands of the 80s, the 90s and NOW!
The Goods are one of the North Okanagan’s favorite party and events bands. Well-known for being recklessly versatile and always fun! Okanagan Life magazine has listed ‘The Goods’ as first and second place winners in ‘best live performing group and ‘best local musicians’ categories multiple times over the last six years. The Goods are James Taylor, Todd York and Aaron Anderson.
Tribute to Bob Seger & John Fogerty
Dan Hare and the March Hare Band present the music of John Fogerty and Bob Seger. John Fogerty is one of the most enduring icons of rock and his music is loved by everyone everywhere! As Fogerty says in his hit ‘Creedence Song,’ “You can’t go wrong if you play a bit of that Creedence song.” Everyone agrees! Don’t miss this recreation alongside that of ’70s and ’80s Bob Seger, an American music legend, loved by millions whose hits were on every rock radio station in the world. Having the powerful vocals required for this show, enjoy many of Bob Seger’s countless hits.
Sabrina Weeks & Swing Cat Bounce
Sabrina Weeks and Swing Cat Bounce are an act that needs to be seen. Offering up a generous helping of the Swinging Bouncing Boogie Blues is what Sabrina Weeks & Swing Cat Bounce do. The show is dynamic; the players are exceptional; and the grooves drive until you’re swingin’, bouncin’ and getting’ your boogie on. The songs are light hearted with a twist of naughty, the melodies are infectious and it is abundantly apparent when watching this group that they truly love what they are doing.
Pat Ryan’s music crosses genres rock, country, soul, pop & classical. Why such a range of genres? Pat collaborates with different amazing musicians on each of his songs. He believes in allowing a song to carry itself away and develop a life of its own. Most fan comments are directed to the meaningful lyrics and stories told within his music and each song is “different and unique” from the rest. He has produced and published 25+ songs, distributed worldwide on 35 digital music stores including iTunes.
