We are a 4 piece dance band who plays country and classic rock cover tunes. We play any and all places live music lives; corporate events, bars and clubs, rodeos, weddings, community halls, family reunions and events, private parties, Halloween, Christmas, New Year's, curling rinks, picnics, outdoor events, select charities and fundraisers, and anything you can imagine. We bring a rocking high energy show guaranteed to get your party started and keep it going all night long.
What to Expect
The client and audience can expect a high energy, fun for all, professional show that rocks the room and ensures a great time for all. We arrive on time, set up and tear down efficiently, provide all lights, PA and sound production in a timely and professional manner. We are clean and well groomed and get into the spirit of the event: Halloween we all appear in costumes, black tie we all dress the part and jeans and boots and cowboy hats come out for those events that need that look. If it is a family event we can decrease our volume accordingly so everyone can visit and yet still get the little ones and the older folks out on the dance floor participating and having a great time. Whatever the event, we are the real deal to make it happen and let it be a time to remember.
Our band is fronted by female vocalist Kathy Carter. Kathy also plays rhythm guitar, keys and some bass guitar. Ray Olson is lead guitarist and also covers lead vocals and bass guitar. Mark Vernon is our bass player and also adds lead vocals, guitar and some keys. Steve Keevill is the group's drummer/percussionist and also adds lead vocals. The band members are mature, seasoned and professional musicians. We bring a solid, polished and professional show to the stage but most importantly, we have fun and it is absolutely contagious with all of those folks in attendance!
Additional Booking Notes
For regular, everyday events we provide all our own lighting and sound production. For very large events all PA, lights and production would become a negotiable piece. Depending on distance from home, rooms, meals and travel may be another piece to negotiate. A non-refundable deposit, as per the Gig Salad Booking Agreement is required at the time of booking to secure your date. For outdoor events a covered stage is required to protect gear in case of inclement weather.

Influences & Inspiration
The band members all come from different musical backgrounds and yet we all have played for many years and love, love, love music. We are influenced by everything from Jimi Hendrix to Johnny Cash and Patsy Cline to Joan Jett. Like all musicians, the world of music at large is our influence and our own talents shine through in that mix.
Plugs ins with adequate breakers and power to support a 4 piece band is required. A covered stage is required if the gig is outdoors to protect musicians and gear from the elements. A generator is required if there is no available power supply. (remove)
