2008 Nakusp Music Fest
It was my second year at the Nakusp Music Fest, an awesome event in an incredible setting on the shores of the Upper Arrow Lake in the ‘Kootenays’.
The festival had a fantastic line-up of classic rock genre including Paul Rodgers; Kenny Shields & Streetheart and Honeymoon Suite and remarkable, iconic tribute bands like AC/DC (local area band BC/DC rocked the festival Saturday afternoon)! A returning favourite Skavenjah, a SKA/rock group from Regina, sent sheet music to a local high school; and selected horn players joined the group on stage and performed in front of a very enthusiastic audience on Friday night.
Except for the 8:00 am sound checks, an annoying drawl of ‘yeah’, ‘check’ and ‘owh’ to wake you from your slumbers; it was an excellent weekend!
