Local musicians Justin Hogg, Paul Smith, Alan Pangburn, Christian Maslyk, Angela Proulx, and Andrea Mallon left for Kentucky July 21 to take part in Champion Petfoods groundbreaking celebration July 23.
The musicians shared the stage with country singer Buffy Lawson and Grammy Award nominated bluegrass band the Grasscals.
The musicians returned to Alberta July 24. Smith, Maslyk, Proulx and Pangburn have been working over the summer on the second iteration of Rocktober, that will take place Oct. 4. Last year’s concert was a tribute to Queen.
This year’s Rocktober will mix the music of Pink Floyd with other original and cover songs. Tickets for the show will be on sale soon.
