Well we made it to Rock The Peach Music Festival.
The organizers have done a stellar job in this EPIC event! The First night was an overwhelming success!
Indie Band The Malibu Knights opened the Rock Festival with an amazing set and managed to get it in before the heavens opened up and let us have it.
The Knights won the contest for the opening act. They ROCK ! They also were in the top 20 bands in Vancouver’s CFOX SEEDS 2012 Competition. Well Done !
There was a thunderstorm which hit just after the Knights left the stage. It was raining halfway through the set and the crowd braved the rain. But , WOW, the skies literally opened up after they had finished. We had to go dry out, rest and missed The Steadies. They have an impressive resume already with Earl Pereira, one of the founding members of Wide Mouth Mason. It’s a group I love ! They already have 3 Juno nominations and 2 gold records ! Well Done Steadies ! This Canadian Band is another great act and I wish I had not been to overcome, dizzy, wet and fatigued to miss them .
We did however after a much needed rest make it back to see Jets Overhead . A Victoria B.C. Band that had everyone of all ages up and grooving! Fun, happy music. Just what we needed and a great opener for Atlanta Georgia’s Collective Soul.
Collective Soul partied until just after the curfew. At 11pm sound is to go off but they did not get the plug pulled like Sir Paul McCartney’s and Bruce Springsteen’s show in London. They were able to finish their set. They were just warmed up and wanted to play more but we were very happy to have them perform. What an amazing show. Almost an hour and a half. Gel, Shine, Better Now, Precious Declaration, all their hits were played.
Because of the weather things were behind schedule. Can’t control the weather. No more rain this weekend. Just Sun, Fun and Rock The Peach. Yeah Baby, You Have to see Them Live !
Today, Three Dog Night, WAR and The Sam Roberts Band. Rock and Roll ! Lots of room so get to Penticton. Two days left of great events and Rock and Roll.
