What a night!! Packed with talent, wonderful music and 4, that’s right FOUR, yes 4 great acts! How many?……4!!! There is a ton of talent in the Okanagan Valley and these women of music are among the very best of them.
The great big voice of Aimee Grice (pictured) and the sweet sounds of Saradaye Lean with her wonderful ukulele will open things up.
Ursula Fox surprised us one Friday night when she sat down at the piano and ripped off a boogie woogie tune that brought the house to its feet. She has whipped up a program of great piano tunes and will be our second performer on this great night of Okanagan stars. The Americans have Jerry Lee and we’ve got a killer of our own right here in the valley.
I have had the great pleasure of listening to Hilary Drummond on several occasions both with her band and on her own right here at Medici’s. Carol Sheridan kicked it hard on stage in the park last summer on the Divas Night and will team up with Hilary. Both these talented ladies will do a few of their own and then team up to bring the third act home. Excellent guitar licks and fine, fine vocals will be on the menu.
Our closing act will be the one and only Mikie Spillett. Mikie is the consummate pro when it comes to performing. She’s been at it since she was a kid and ranges all the way from country to mainstream rock. Mikie is going too close out the night and put a cap on what should be a perfect evening…..Will there be any men on the stage at all??…of course! We need back-up musicians, sound techs, roadies and of course some token male to be your emcee.
Tickets will be $20 each and we have had tons of requests to get them ready for sale, so here they come. Friday, April 24th. Our doors will open at 6:30 and the queens of the valley will start to rip it up at 7:30. Medici’s at 522 Fairview Road…250-498-2228…do not miss this!!…reserve your seat….quick!!
