Last week we had the incredible honour to perform for newly-weds Keven and Celine on beautiful Saltspring Island. From the boisterous gang performance on Don’t Stop Believing, to the touching version of “Stand By Me” performed by the bridal party (with lyrics they wrote themselves!), to the young girls performing Dancing Queen, there were too many highlights to name. But the one that really stood out is this moment right here: Keven and Celine taking the stage to perform a duet of “I Can’t Help Falling In Love With You”.
These moments will be cherished forever, and we can’t express our joy to be a small part of bringing together family and friends in such a fun, meaningful way. Rockaoke weddings are a thing, folks!
This weekend we had the distinct pleasure to invite the fine folks at Omega Mechanical on-stage to enjoy the rockstar experience at Vancouver’s world-famous Glowbal Restaurant.
It was the full-meal deal: 4-piece rock band plus our go-to vocal trio of Donna, Danielle and Tiffany. After getting the crowd warmed up with a little Van Morrison mini-set and the all-time QotSA banger “No One Knows”, we brought up our first guest to sing arguably the greatest song of them all: “Sweet Caroline”. That set the tone for another memorable night of Rockaoke Live, which ended with a bang: a blues-jam finale featuring the CEO Brad Hedblom on the skins.
This show was a milestone of sorts for us. After learning that Roger’s Pass would be a non-starter for our initial car travel plans, we came up with a solution. We flew into Edmonton and rented our entire backline, plus the sound system at the local Long & McQuade (love those guys!).
Admittedly, It was kind of strange travelling with only a backpack, but we gained valuable insights to the logistics of this crazy road show.
Thanks to VETS Group for throwing a memorable party and rocking out in style!
Jack Daniel’s and The Cascade Room got the party started early on NYE!
Of course we had to pay homage to the unbearable number of British Icons who have past away in recent memory. David Bowie “Let’s Dance” was a fitting close to the first set, while Amy Winehouse got several nods on classics like “Valerie” and “Back to Black” as patrons paid their respects and toasted to the icons.
The Cascade Room’s manager Justin even got up on stage to close out the night with a “Whole Lotta Love” to remember. Amidst a thriving electric atmosphere, he declared that happy hour would be extended!
We got the call to play the beautiful Caulfield Cove Hall in West Vancouver, near the world-famous Lighthouse Park.
With love in the air, we started things off with a few classics before opening the floor for the guests to sing their hearts out, including a too-cute-for-life rendition of “Stayin’ Alive” by the little lady on the left.
Congratulations to the bride and groom, may your love last forever!
We drove up the world-famous Sea-to-Sky Highway to put on a special show for the fine folks at Arbonne.
After a few songs from the host-vocalist Robert Downey Goulet Jr., things started to get a little crazy as the special requests poured in. Journey? Check! AC/DC? Double-check!! Amy Winehouse, ABBA, Benatar…. it feels like we put on a music history show!
The ladies (and three lucky gentlemen) from Arbonne sure know how to have a good time, and that’s what we’re ALL about!
Thanks again to Carol Priest Entertainment for putting Rockaoke Live on the case 🙂
We are still reeling from the crazy party at the Delta Grand Okanagan Resort in Kelowna with the Canadian Home Builder’s Association. For the first time ever, we unveiled the vocal trio of Danielle, Donna and Tiffany, AKA the Thrillas from Manila.
From the opener “For Those About To Rock” to the Canadian classic finale “Blow at High Dough”, the dance floor was packed the entire night… We Salute You!
HUGE thanks to Carol Priest and Danielle Julien for putting on such a great event:
