Women Who Rock

Spruce Grove, Alberta

This remarkable concert is a melding of two incredible tribute shows: Barracuda - The Essential Tribute to Heart and All Fired Up - The Pat Benatar Experience. Hailing from Vancouver, Barracuda perform the music of Heart with style, presence, and a true passion for the songs that have become beloved classics to fans worldwide. It is no wonder Heart founding member and guitar player Roger Fisher endorses them! The two leads Donna Caruk (Almost Ann) and Brenda Kashmir (Nearly Nancy) have electric chemistry on stage as they sing Heart's classic hits: 'Magic Man', 'Straight On', 'Heartless', and, of course, 'Barracuda'. Backing the ladies are four seasoned musicians with a dedication to detail and a rock-solid delivery.All Fired Up is an exact and precise tribute to the iconic singer Pat Benatar and her partner Neil Geraldo who have been rock n' roll mainstays for over 40 years. Donna Caruk has been singing Benatar's songs for 30 years. Not only does she nail the vocals she also has the stage presence dialed in as she performs such classic songs as 'Hit Me with Your Best Shot', 'Heartbreaker', 'Love is a Battlefield', and 'Treat Me Right'.

Lion Bear Fox

Spruce Grove, Alberta
2018-03-03 To 2018-03-03 MST

One part folk, one part rock, with a pinch of gospel and a dash of growl, Vancouver's Lion Bear Fox boasts acoustic guitars bookended by buzzing electrics and screaming keys. All of this, anchored by rich percussion and thrilling harmonies. With a name that is derived from a connection with their 'spirit animals' this trio has a sound that harkens back to an era when the song was paramount. Described as 'a musical force of nature' that's sure to 'be around for a lifetime', Christopher Arruda, Cory Woodward, and Ryan McMahon were known initially for their solo careers but they joined forces in 2012 and soon after released their debut Lion Bear Fox CD. They've been touring relentlessly since then, making appearances at Canadian Music Week, the Mission Folk Festival, and The Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver, and sharing stages with artists like Tom Wilson, Good For Grapes, Elliot Brood, and Kim Mitchell.
