Okanagan Music Rundown: From Rampant Lion to The Tea Party your week will be filled with great live music

Pencil these great shows into your calendar this week

Last weekend it was my birthday so I was only able to squeeze one show in however this week I plan on making up for it.

Friday night I plan on hitting a double header, first stop will be Doc Willoughby’s Downtown Pub to see The Post War and Rampant Lion then ending the night at Fernando’s Pub to see The Pack Ad and Ancient Engines.

Saturday there is no way I am missing Charlie Handsome and the Brats, I have heard so much about this band that I cannot wait to see them live.

On Tuesday I will be checking out The Tea Party.

One of the great rock’n’roll bands to come out of Canada doesn’t plan on slowing down anytime soon.

The Tea Party was founded in 1990 and received seven of their 13 JUNO Award nominations between 1994 and 1988. The band has stayed together longer than their idols, Led Zeppelin and The Beatles.

Their unmistakable guitar riffs infused with middle eastern, Celtic and Mediterranean music sets them apart from the rest. Their willingness to stand out from the rest offered rewards and now the band is revered internationally.

Read more about the band in my article The Tea Party lives on
