The Fire Valley Band brings its unique sound all the way from Edgewood to the Leland April 21.

Fire Valley Band set for Nakusp show

The Fire Valley Band will bring their show all the way from Edgewood to the Leland Bar in Nakusp on Saturday April 21.

Are you tired of endless spring cleaning and feel that itchy small town cabin fever?

It’s time to dust the cobwebs off your dancing shoes and shake out your pretty dress. All the way down the road from Edgewood, a good time is headed your way. The Fire Valley Band will bring their show to the Leland Bar on Saturday April 21.

No cover charge and the music starts at 9 p.m. This community seven-piece band promises rhythm, blues & soul with high energy, eclectic musical talent, and a reportoire that will have everyone on the floor whether you’re barely legal or a two-stepping senior citizen.

This group was put together by band leader Brother Ray Lemelin as a wedding gift for a lovely local couple. Their first performance was on a flatbed trailer at the ballpark in Edgewood. After the party, when the band had a chance to recover, they decided this was way too much fun to quit. Two years, a few concerts and Legion dances later, there’s no stopping them.

Brother Ray Lemelin has toured all over Canada since the early 80s. He has recorded three albums of his own, wrote a Cajun album for Crystal Plamondon and rocked out at The King Eddy in Calgary. He has recorded and produced with folks like Tim Williams and a list of people “longer than his arms.”

Also coming along for the ride will be master violinist Karl Roth whose album features the song “Everybody Wants to be a Cat.” Check out his Bravo-produced YouTube video and you’ll understand why the band is honored to have him as a guest performer.

If you’re coming from out of town, book  a room with your honey, make some Sunday brunch reservations and join The Fire Valley Band for a night you’ll wish you could remember but know you won’t soon forget.
