Southern Alberta’s rural charms, lakeside villages and western history make for all kinds of adventures you just couldn’t experience anywhere else. ● Cowboy culture: Hop on a horse for a day or three. You’ll see firsthand what indigenous people, early pioneers and ranchers saw in this part of the world when it was still a wild, wild west. ● Theatre: Dinosaurs and Jesus? Yeah, it happens in the world-renowned Canadian Badlands Passion Play. ● Go local: Hit a rural or urban farmers market for local produce and grass-fed beef, pickles and preserves, artisan crafts and homegrown entertainment.

MonkeyJunk

Bragg Creek, Alberta
2017-11-25 To 2017-11-25 MST

The 2008 birth of the Ottawa-based band MonkeyJunk came along just when music fans needed them the most, bringing an accessible and refreshing blend of swamp-rock roots and blues to the table. They haven’t looked back since. MonkeyJunk have won a collective 20 Maple Blues Awards, two Canadian Independent Music Awards, a Blues Music Award (USA), and a JUNO Award. As one of the hardest working bands on the scene today, these Canadian ambassadors of blues/rock are constantly working to up their game in terms of song writing and musicianship. “Are we a blues band? Yes, but we’re also a soul band, a funk band, a rock band. It depends on the day,” says lead singer Steve Marriner, pointing to their ability to entertain a theatre audience in Alberta, or a slam-dancing student crowd packed into a greasy rock bar in Poland. What makes MonkeyJunk’s music so interesting and different is the substitution of a baritone guitar in place of a normal four-string bass. Marriner rolls out a bottom end while at the same time churning out harmonic riffs that act as counterparts for the main guitar lines. By the way the name MonkeyJunk comes from bluesman Son House, who once said “I’m talking about the blues, I ain’t talking ’bout no MonkeyJunk.” Signed to the respected Canadian roots label, Stony Plain Records, they tour steadily and have a devoted following of fans who call themselves MonkeyJunkies. The band maintains a busy touring schedule, touring across Canada, into the United States and across Europe as well. MonkeyJunk knows how to have a good time, and they’ll ensure that the Bragg Creek audience does too! Tickets available online or in person at SunCatchers Bragg Creek. Cash bar and concession available.
