The Johnny McCuaig Band
Friday, Jan 16
Energy, melody, distinctive rock and roll with bagpipes but Celtic they are not. Have you ever wondered if there are any bands left in the music industry that displays integrity, originality and willingness to push the envelope of creativity? Meet The JMB. A 4 piece rock band that is fresh, heavy, experimental and best of all popular. If you are in the mood for something more refreshing than a cold pint on a sweaty day, its time to experience TJMB. This bagpipe sensation has people groping for superlatives trying to define this McCuagian Sound. Try to imagine a band that can seamlessly blend and twist almost every style of popular music together. The Blues mixed with a 70’s groove. A chugging rock guitar interlaced with Scottish Bagpipes. A country train with a melodic voice that pulls you in without choice. TJMB is distinctive. Johnny brings bagpipes to a whole new level by playing them as a lead instrument; much like a guitar including all the effects, all while wearing a kilt! TJMB is positive, on the edge (and sometimes over!), experimental, sexy and definitely something not to be missed. Showtime 9PM | $10 cover | Ph: 403.356.0033 for more information & reservations

Boots & the Hoots present "The Pinecone Opry" with special guests Kayla Hotte & Her Rodeo Pals
Thursday, Jan 29
Ol' Boots & The Hoots presents The Pinecone Opry! The series will feature acts from the booming Country & Bluegrass scene. Fratters has partnered with Boots & The Hoots to create a premier place to showcase all the talent the boys have met playing festivals and shows across the province & beyond. "Boots & the Hoots Present The Pinecone Opry with special guests Kayla Hotte & Her Rodeo Pals" Based out of Edmonton, Alberta, Kayla Hotte & Her Rodeo Pals play 1940’s style Country & Western music. Kayla Hotte’s love of vintage music is evident in her song choice and writing style. Kayla is a recent graduate of the Grant MacEwan University Music Program. Although The Rodeo Pals are a fairly new project (formed in the spring of 2012), Kayla has been a performing musician for the majority of her life. She started with her family bluegrass band and as soon as she was old enough, she started her own. It began with the Bluegrass Angels, and extended to Shortgrass, The Kayla & Erin Show and now, The Rodeo Pals. The Rodeo Pals have included some of Edmonton’s finest musicians such as Matthew Hotte, Jamie Philp, Marc Ladouceur, Luke Deutekom, Keith Burgess, and Gary Okrainec. You haven’t heard a band like this in years. More information: http://www.reverbnation.com/2587968/bio?mobile_redirection=disabled
