NEW FOR THE KETTLE VALLEY BRAKEMEN IN 2018
When any group of entertainers has been giving hit concerts for twenty years you might think that a “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” mentality would prevail. After all, with plenty of both private and public performances each year plus a loyal fan base throughout southern B.C., why mess with success? Rest assured, we Brakemen are fine tuning not re-building our shows. Here’s what’s NEW for 2018.
The story/song mix that make up a Brakemen concert sparks vivid memories of the steam rail past among our audiences. While The Brakemen enjoy success with all age groups, Seniors—are our most appreciative fans. Post-performance chats between band and audience members almost always include grateful folks saying how wonderful it felt to have forgotten memories “recovered” as a result of one of our concerts.
Big Announcement Number One
In 2018 The Kettle Valley Brakemen performances will include new songs to (hopefully) stir such lost memories of the “Age of Steam”. We’re sharpening our show for Seniors!
Big Announcement number two
BRAKEMEN SNOWBIRD CONCERT SERIES
When our northern Snowbirds opt to stay in Canada many choose the south Okanagan. For the past two years The Brakemen have performed SOLD OUT winter concerts at Seniors Centers in Osoyoos and Peachland. Snowbirds, like local seniors, know trains and they are curious about our area’s history. A KV Brakemen Concert fits their interests perfectly. In 2018 we Brakemen plan to expand these winter Snowbird Concerts to include:
- Saturday February 24th at the Osoyoos Seniors Centre. Usually a 7:00 Show. For the past two years this concert sells out well before the show. Get your tickets early. Further information: 250-495-3211
- Sunday March 11th at the “50 Plus” Seniors Centre in Peachland. Last year another sell out, get your tickets early for this afternoon concert. Info: 250-767-2647
BUT WAIT...THERE’S MORE!
Big Announcement Number Three
Also new in 2018, all Brakemen concerts will include a FREE Encore!!!
