Baker Street Blues
Baker Street Blues have made it their mission to entertain audiences with their unique version of high energy rockin’ blues. Boating killer instrumentals on guitar (Ryan Telegdy), a brutally unstoppable rhythm section (Tim Potter on drums and Phil Wilson-Birks on bass) and a lead singer/frontman (Stelio Calagias) who was born to entertain. Baker Street Blues treat every gig like their lives depend on it.
Short of making a visit to vintage Chicago juke joint this is the sweetest, funkiest, bluesiest, most sweat inducing party dance band you’ll hear this year. Put on your dancing shoes and get ready to move!
Their tagline says it all “Blues that grabs hold of you and doesn’t let go”
The Metre Maids
Hailing from Nelson, British Columbia, The Metre Maids are the Kootenays’ #1 Beatles cover band. Boasting tight harmonies, in-the-pocket grooves, and good vibes, these fabulous four women interpret Beatles classics while channeling the girl groups of the sixties who inspired the music: the Shirelles, the Marvelettes, and Rosie and the Originals. Accomplished musicians who play multiple instruments, write music, teach music, and live for music, Mel, Jackie, Molly, and Sarah get every audience singing and dancing so loudly the room vibrates. This band appeals to everyone- no one is no one too old or too young to appreciate these performers and their classic repertoire. A must-see live experience.
