Lost N Found

Lost N found is a five piece country band from Kelowna, BC., in the Okanagan Valley, generating tasteful three part harmonies, melodic mandolin, foot stomping rhythms and of course that good o'l country twang. 

The band derives their sound from traditional country, alternative and new country which is well represented in their original music. They are sure to liven your party; and as is the way of country music, they will either get you feeling really high or really low.

We host many bands at the OK Corral Cabaret and this group is one of the top....a must see!  They're very talented and humble. They keep the crowd dancing and play a mix of top country with classics but it's their originals that will really blow you away. (Andy) 

Sista B and the Boyz

Sista B and the Boyz are one of the Okanagan’s most popular bands. Lead singer, Barbara Samuel, performs old classics and the latest hits with energy, soul and power.


The band is always a crowd pleaser, with interactive shows that are entertaining

The Johnny McCuaig Band

The Johnny McCuaig Band is a Canadian band. Now, you’re probably wondering, “What does that mean?” Well, for starters, they don’t say ‘about’ as ‘aboot’ and they definitely don’t sound like Nickelback, Justin Bieber, Arcade Fire or Drake. Instead, they draw on Canada’s rich, cultural mosaic to create an original mix of musical genres that stands out in the crowd. We’re talking a super fun blend of adult contemporary rock, pop, and blues combined with their not-so-secret weapon: bagpipes!

The Johnny McCuaig Band consistently thrills fans with their one-of-a-kind live show that bursts with energy and positive vibes. If you don’t leave a TJMB show without a perma-grin then there’s just no hope for you.

This group has electrified audiences in Sweden, Japan, Canada, Mexico and The U.S.A.  With their new release “Lions as Ravens” coming out Sept of 2018, TJMB is set to be a house hold name.  The band consists of Johnny McCuaig- lead vocals, bagpipes and rhythm guitar, James Picton Lead – guitar and vocals, Allen Morrison – rhythm guitar and vocals, Kevin Kyle – Bass and vocals, and Dan Barton – Drums, percussion and vocals.

To truly get the full Johnny McCuaig Band experience, you HAVE to see them live onstage. Live, their brand of melodic ear candy becomes a feast for the senses. Bagpipes, a kilt, crunching guitars, a hip-shaking rhythm section, and boundless energy makes for one hell of a show. These guys continue to exemplify rock music without the sensitive beards and banjo’s.  With high profile gigs such as Fremont Street in Las Vegas and Live at Heart festival in Sweden under their belt to countless venues across Canada and the U.S. A., TJMB is set on expanding the McCuaig Brigade around the world.

It’s not Celtic. It’s not pop. It’s not alternative. It’s everything. It’s TJMB. The McCuaig Brigade is a party and you’re invited!

Gorden James

Gorden James has made quite the name for himself, both as an artist and as an all-around great guy.

 

James was featured on CMT Canada’s, Big in a Small Town, as one of thirty artists selected across Canada to participate. "They emailed me and asked me to audition," said James from his Kelowna home. "They picked 30 artists from across Canada, two of them from BC. It was a really cool experience.  All the staff and crew treated us like gold. It gave my album, Heart of the Matter, great exposure."

 

James, who won a song writing competition in 2002 sponsored by Factor, CMT, and Country radio across the nation, released the EP Near You with the title track making it to the top ten in CBC’s Searchlight contest last Summer.

 

James has performed everywhere from large concerts to store openings. Whether a solo, duo or trio appearance, James tailors his show and set to accommodate!  He will be performing at the Interior Savings Sunrise Rotary RibFest for the second year in a row when he takes to the stage on August 26th.

 

James is an accomplished singer/songwriter who describes his style as urban country, easy listening, with a touch of the blues. His debut album, Heart of the Matter, continues to get airplay across Canada and overseas.

 

When James isn't performing, he spends his time as a volunteer for hospice and doing shows at the cancer lodge. He wrote a song for Soles4Souls, which was later replaced by the Canadian-based not-for-profit organization known as Shoe Bank Canada, an organization that gets shoes to people that need them in Canada and around the world.

 

Fighting Orange

Based in Kelowna, BC., Fighting Orange has risen from the ashes of The Fighting Urges and Glockwerk.  Fighting Orange is a harmonious, acoustic duo featuring Dave Beaton and Peter Glockner.  Dave is stylin’ out on guitar and well-placed harmonies while multi-tasker Peter Glockner can be found blowing a mean blues harp, banging on the bongos like a chimpanzee or strumming a guitar to accompany his lead vocals.
 
Join the Dave and Pete Show on their eclectic, acoustic musical tour as they work their way through a heap of great covers ranging from AC-DC to ZZ TOP and all points in between with a strong nod to the Beatles, Tom Petty and some classic Rolling Stones.  Strong harmonies and solid musicianship ensure that everyone will be smiling, tapping their toes, dancing and generally having a raucous time from the first note to the last. Why would you want to miss this?

Accolades:  “at every place we play, the staff tell us that we’re their favorite band!”
