Kelowna 2013 Vegas Style

He took a risk and it payed off!...I’m talking about local talent entrepreneur Kevin R. Berry, better known throughout Kelowna as Rann Berry:  He fronts a very popular music ensemble, Rann Berry and The Random Act.  Kevin has also developed a full fledged Showband/Revue during 2012, and has had enormous success with his Vegas Revue style One Hit Wonders…a concert performance concept that has an historical element to it.  As he built this concept through the last year, it has grown and now the presentation is bigger than ever!  Kevin’s new show is a New Years’ celebration, encompassing the One Hit Wonders and more local Talent:

*THE VERY VEGAS NEW YEARS EVE GALA*

RANN BERRY and the ONE HIT WONDERS-

“The Ultimate 60s and 70s Musical Flashback”

 With Special Guests:

DIAMOND JONES and his “Trip Down The Vegas Strip” 

 Plus:  THE 9 PIECE R & B All STAR BAND PERFORMING THE MUSIC OF MOTOWN 

 …So on New Years’ Eve you can enjoy a triple serving of the greatest music of the twentieth century!  From the favourite hits of all time, along with a Vegas style performance with Diamond Jones and the soulful sounds of Motown!  Rann Berry has turned Kelowna in to the Entertainment Capital of BC!—even it is for one night!  A great way to wind up 2012 and get ready for a musically rich 2013 with some of Kelowna’s finest musical Talent!
