August 13/2017 ROCK THE LAKE/ KELOWNA

This is what I LOVE about being in a rock band-travelling to holiday spots like Kelowna, B.C, nestled in the Okanagan Valley of B.C. to play rock and roll.  And they even pay us to do it!  Talk about the life of Riley!   This gig was with Carole Pope (High School Confidential/Birds of a Feather), Chilliwack (California Girls/She Talks Crazy Talk/Cousin Mary/Fly by Night) and Honeymoon Suite (New Girl Now/Feel it Again/Wave Babies).   We played a lot of festivals with the Suite guys throughout 2017-I think we work well together in “today’s situation” because fans remember us touring together back in the day.  Anyway, I hope that continues as they’re great people-easy to get along with and a lot of laughs.   You also see some of my relatives in this clip, especially my cousin Shelly.  Always good to see them!  Sylvain Lavallee, an old friend from St. Thomas, Ontario, also came  to see us play.  He’s one of my best friends but he’s been in B.C. for quite a few years now, so once again…

 

The clip ends up with us at Holy Smoke, a place we rented through Airb&b.   It was on top of a mountain outside of Penticton-at “APEX”, which I imagine is a 10,000 people strong ski village in the winter.  In the summer it’s almost deserted except for a few joggers, bikers, construction workers, and stray Angus cattle.
