Genre: Instrumental

Panache (initially “Richard’s Band”) was founded in 1992 by Richard Campion. The members were brought together to play a fundraiser for the construction of the Strathcona Care Centre in Sherwood Park. The band morphed into the "Dixiecats" and played most notably for the Prairie Steam Tours out of Stettler. After acquiring the name Panache the group expanded to play for weddings, anniversaries, dances, and special events. Panache now focusses primarily on swing, dixieland and jazz standards - music from the 20th century. The seven piece band features: Clayton Braid- trumpet; Ed Bouthillier- tenor sax; Jim Jost- alto sax/clarinet; Linda Reinholdt- trombone; Mike Kischuk- tuba; Colin Bonneau - piano; and Harrison Thurgood - drums.


The Hearts
Genre: Pop/Rock

The Hearts deliver memorable melodies and moody harmonies. What sets them apart is just how naturally their down-to-earth songwriting rests against a dreamy backdrop of custom-made Americana textures - six captivating musicians blending into one unforgettable sound. Spanning four albums, The Hearts’ music has been featured in HBO and MTV productions, received international critical acclaim and charted across Canada. They’ve toured extensively and performed at international festivals including SXSW, Calgary & Edmonton Folk Festivals and Interstellar Rodeo. They’re revered for delivering an exciting live show where they trade, layer and cohere splendidly - mixing equal parts glitter and grit.
