Are you ready to rock? Penticton classic rock ‘n’ roll band, 13 Broken Bones sure is. At this Thursday’s Music in the Park, they promise to pull out all the stops on the hits of the 50s to 80s. Band members Bill Gilmour (bass guitar), Kevin Lamb (guitar /vocals), Floyd Armstrong (drums/ lead vocals), Glenn Mageau (keyboards) and Valentine Jones (guitar) got together in 2012. They bonded over their favourite radio hits: the British bands from the Beatles and Elton John to Queen and Dire Straits, classic American rockers like John Mellencamp, CCR, Van Halen, and Billy Joel, and great tunes by Bryan Adams. Their “sounds of summer” repertoire is sure to please all ages.
