Alberta’s Boom Chucka Boys headline Spruce Grove’s Canada Day Celebration

Group will perform on Beaverbrook Main Stage on July 1 in Jubilee Park

Everyone in Jubilee Park will be up and dancing when high-energy country band, The Boom Chucka Boys External, headline the Beaverbrook Main Stage at the Spruce Grove Canada Day Celebration on July 1, 2016 at 9:30 p.m.

The Boom Chucka Boys aren’t typical in any way. They walk a fine line between musical stylings, but make no mistake, they are first and foremost, a country band. Hailing from Sylvan Lake, their 2013 single "Find My Peace of Mind" reached number 43 on the Billboard Canada Country chart. Their other singles include "Turn This Car Around", "Rebel Wings" and "Can't Take My Lips Off You".

Influenced by artists like Dierks Bentley, Zac Brown Band, Dwight Yoakam, CCR, Bruce Springsteen, and Johnny Cash, the Boom Chucka Boys’ original music leaves its mark on audiences with a unique sound. Energetic and expressive, their lyrics hit like a four on the floor kick drum!

Nominated for three Canadian Country Music Awards in 2015 and winners of three Alberta Country Music Awards, audiences across the country are falling in love with these boys. So whether you just want to sit back and watch on Canada Day, or get up and dance, their energy will be hard to ignore!

Opening for the Boom Chucka Boys are Shred Kelly and Scott Cook.

Edmonton’s Scott Cook External is a roots balladeer with a rare personal warmth. Scott has distilled the stories he has collected over a decade of touring Canada, the USA, Europe, Asia, and Australia into straight-talking, keenly observant verse. His tunes weave threads of folk, roots, blues, soul, and country over spacious fingerstyle guitar and clawhammer banjo arrangements. Scott Cook and his band, The Second Chances, perform on the Beaverbrook Main Stage from 7 – 8 p.m.

Since their inception, the Fernie, B.C., based band Shred Kelly External have been re-defining what folk-rock means. Pushing the boundaries of the genre, they incorporate a wide range of influences to create a sound that is uniquely called ‘stoke folk.’ Playing sold-out concerts across Canada, they have performed at some of our country’s premier festivals and received a growing number of awards, including a Western Canadian Music Award in 2015. Dynamic, high-energy, and engaging, Shred Kelly will be stirring up the crowd from 8 – 9 p.m.

The evening will conclude with a fireworks display at 11 p.m.

Horizon Stage External is pleased to present this year’s Canada Day headliners.
