They slayed it!...the Flu appeared at CFOX’s Seeds event at The Roxy and totally took over the stage. The Reviews are in, and the audiences approve…the Flu were an instant hit, performing material from their force one debut! The foursome are back in Kelowna preparing for this weekend’s CD Release Party. Saturday August 17th will be the day, and West Kelowna Beach-the place!

Last week we got to know a little more of one Southern Alberta musician, Craig Baceda. If you want to hear his musical wizardry, just go to www.oneandonlyforce.com there are samples of Craig’s Work and the opportunity to buy his debut CD. Personal Representation is through Tony Stevenson (AJ Montana), and all correspondence should be directed to: [email protected]
Out of Vancouver, the Power Trio “Jesus Krysler” are making some national headway from their third release, “Rock And Roll What’s That”. Enjoy the video below, a live rendition of their first single.
Frontiers Records are set to release a big Ted Nugent package! “Ultralive Ballisticrock”-a 2CD/1DVD set that will start off this year’s Rocktober releases! This will see the ‘Nuge’ at his ultimate supercharged best.
Another iconic group will be releasing their new album on Frontiers. “Stryper” will release “No More Hell To Pay” –worldwide in November. The new studio album also marks ‘Styper’s’ thirtieth anniversary!!
Look for the CD/DVD package from Def Leppard coming soon! “Viva Hysteria” will hit the stores in Rocktober….
