I got the following press release from a new event producer in Kelowna. Karma Lacoff was the co-producer of Breakout West and has always played a behind the scenes role in our music community. She is well known in the industry and this will be her second show she is producing. I first saw Cuff the Duke in 2006 in Penticton. They were opening for Sloan back them but they honestly stole the show. I can highly recommend this act if your interested in discovering a uniquely Canadian alt-country act.
Sapphire owner, Arun Alleliua, says he wants to add to the club’s appeal beyond the premium nightclub it already is and into an “entertainment complex” catering to a wide variety of tastes. “I want it to be a dance club that can also be a home for live music. I think we can have the best of both worlds,” he says.
Sapphire is a great place to see music, says the show's promoter, Karma Lacoff. “When we used the space for BreakOut West,” she says, referring to the music festival that took over the nightlife in downtown Kelowna as part of the 2010 Western Canadian Music Awards.
