7:30 pm The Lion, The Bear, The Fox @ Powerhouse Theatre

After securing a top 20 position in 102.7 The Peak's prestigious "Peak Performance Project", Christopher Arruda (The Lion), Cory Woodward (The Bear) and Ryan McMahon (The Fox) released their debut EP "We'd Be Good Men" - an energetic brand of gripping, dynamic "stomp rock", capturing a rare form of musical serenity.

Gone are the days of the boy band. Harken the era of the man band!

In May of 2012, the three men set out on tour to promote their respective solo efforts. Over wine, campfires, nights in cheap hotel rooms and woodland cabins an unshakeable bond began to form. They shared stories of their lives, successes and failures in the music industry, and ultimately their dreams of what they hoped to accomplish as artists. Three big voices began to support each other during shows and at the tour's conclusion, they had a setlist worth of material. Something that had come together so naturally; so organically, simply had to be allowed to grow.

And grow it has! In the eight months since the band's inaugural show, the lion the bear the fox have set Western Canada on fire. Their self-produced record is steeped in character with performances captured in bedrooms, hallways, board rooms and open-spaces across British Columbia. By experimenting with sounds freely and building the sonic landscape from the ground up.

Amidst the chaos, the band has also started a life-long partnership with "Music Heals" (musicheals.ca), a charity that advocates, fundraises and creates awareness for music therapy across Canada. Having been touched personally by it's effectiveness, their first initiative "bandwagonproject.com" aims to increase the use of mobile recording studios in a wide array care facilities, from patients facing life altering diagnosis, to schools and retirement homes.

The original Legends of Rock n' Roll (TM) presents two great attractions on one spectacular show...

Zachary Stevenson returns to the stage as Buddy Holly, and he is joined by the knockout Beatles tribute band... The Fab Fourever.

It's a well-known secret that without the influence of Buddy Holly... the Beatles may not have existed, as Paul McCartney stated; "John and I started to write songs because of Buddy Holly." The Beatles name also comes from John wanting a bug-themed name similar to Buddy Holly's "Crickets."

Now some 50 years later... Buddy Holly, the man that left such a huge impression on what is arguably the biggest pop phenomenon of all time, is being celebrated together with the Beatles through their music by two world-class tribute attractions... Zachary Stevenson performing as Buddy Holly and the Fab Fourever performing as the Beatles.
