A dance with live band will be held Saturday, May 7 at the Edgewood Legion hall. The Inonoaklin Recreation Committee (IRC) will host the event featuring the debut public performance of a newly formed seven piece local band, The Edgewood Smoke Hounds. The high energy ensemble will be performing Rock n’ Roll from the 50s to now. Profits from beverage sales will go to the IRC and help fund future events in its calendar.
The band features Brad Fenton on guitar and vocals. Well known in the area and throughout BC for his band the Rippin’ Rattlers, Brad is glad of the opportunity for the band to finally strut its stuff in front of a live audience. Jessica Godtmark from Nakusp will be contributing her powerhouse voice and stage presence. Also on vocals is Edgewood local Holly Brindamour, who is eager to belt it out live. Lindsay Jennifer from Burton will be playing keyboards and singing.
“The four vocals up front and the incredible harmonies make it a real treat,” says Fenton. Glen Gilmour will be on lead guitar and is contributing a top line PA system, stage set up and lights for the event. Darren Dolman from Lumby fills out the bottom end with tasteful melodic bass playing that is always in the groove. Sean Kupser, also of Edgewood will be the drummer/percussionist for the show and can’t wait to play.
The doors open at the Edgewood Legion hall at 7 p.m. and the band starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are available at the Edgewood General Store, J & S Snacks in Fauquier, and the K2 Rotor Lodge in Nakusp. No minors allowed at this event. The IRC welcomes all to come enjoy a night of dancing and fun featuring great local talent to support of our local communities in raising funds for the IRC.
