Band Stage Schedule

Nitty Gritty Dirk Band – Friday 4:15-5:15 pm and Saturday 5pm – 6pm

A local Medicine Hat band that came onto the live music scene just six months ago, their song style features upbeat, danceable, feel good country music, covering a variety of artists including Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, George Strait, Allan Jackson and Keith Urban. They also add in some classic rock, pop and blues…so there’s something for everyone. Band members include Matt Dirk, lead vocals /lead guitar, Aaron Dirk, lead guitar /synth / vocals, Sean Roche, bass/vocals and Wes Archer, drums

 

Taking August – Friday, 7pm – 9pm

They are the kind of musicians that can bring a party to life from the moment they take the stage. The band's line-up features two of Alberta’s finest musicians, Daniel Hooft and Kelsey Porter. The duo has performed at hundreds of venues all over western Canada. Together, they have an eclectic repertoire which includes classic rock, pop, indie rock, folk and country covers as well as a collection of their own original tunes. 

 

Tokey – Saturday 11am

Tokey, aka 2point0, is a very unique yet grounded hip hop artist with heavy influences from rock, funk and even classical pop music. Born in Medicine Hat Alberta, he had always had a great deal of passion for music. Determined with his best friend, at the young age of 7, to one day make music, that’s exactly what they did! From recording low quality tracks in the basement to performing in front of a crowd of 1500+, Tokey has undergone a massive transformation from introvert to extrovert. Over the years, he focused on multi-syllable rhyme schemes as well as dabbling in the art of chopping (rapping very fast). Tokey has opened for many artists – most recently Nelly at the Canalta Centre. He is an artist that is always looking for new people to work with and exciting opportunities. He has been writing songs for 14 years and is excited to be part of Spectrum.

 

Beyond Crimson – Saturday 12 pm

Beyond Crimson consists of singer Anna Theoret, drummer Kris Roga, guitarist Alex Resler, pianist Ashley Na and bassist Brandon Van Doorn. Heavily driven by hard rock, Beyond Crimson was brought together by the song “Civil War” by Guns N’ Roses in 2016. It all began when Alex asked Kris, “Hey, wanna start a band?” Through thick and thin, the members of Beyond Crimson have always been great friends. Sure they have their downs, but like family, they always find a way through. They are joining Spectrum for the first time all the way from Lethbridge.

 

Zanzee Band – Saturday 2pm- 3pm

Zanzee has enjoyed an exciting musical career. This energetic duo featuring Arleen and Dave Zeleny has played all across Canada including Classic Rock Festivals playing alongside groups like Lynyrd Skynyrd, Deep Purple and many others. They also spent five years travelling the world playing on cruise ships, most recently traversing the Northwest Passage with Crystal Cruise Lines. They love to play and love to see their audience enjoying the tunes and having a great time listening to lots of classic rock, rocking country and new tunes as well!

 

Cold Shot Trio – Saturday 3:15pm – 5pm

Don’t stay at home wishing you were here! Come join us for a power set of the best country and rock songs. This local band has been playing together for over 10 years, and has been featured at Stampede, local clubs, and more. The trio is made up of Lou Bernard (guitar/vocals) Nathan Scott (lead vocal/guitar) Abigail Scott (piano/vocals). They will get you on your feet dancing in the sun!  

 

 

Sweet Rock - Saturday 7pm – 9pm

A local Medicine Hat Country / Rock cover band, influenced by current and classic hits that are recognized by most age groups. The band began back in 2011 and consists of Marlyn Quast-Frank (Lead Vocals), Justin Asham (Lead Vocals, Rhythm Guitar), Rob Malek (Drums), Al Bader (Bass) and Berry Frey (Lead Guitar).
