The Whitecourt Trailblazers has booked three more bands for the World Snowmobile Invasion (WSI) in Whitecourt, Alberta: The Boom Chucka Boys; Arrival—the Official ABBA tribute band; and Dreams—a Fleetwood Mac tribute band. This is in addition to Great Big Sea’s Alan Doyle, who will be representing Canada at the World Snowmobile Showcase on Saturday, February 14, 2015.
The World Snowmobile Showcase, which will take place at the Alan & Jean Millar Centre in Whitecourt, will feature live music as well as international food and beverages. The goal is to have Sweden, Finland, Norway, United States and Canada represented at the event.
Arrival, which will be representing Sweden, is a seven-piece band that has played hundreds of sold-out shows. They are reportedly one of the best ABBA tribute bands in the world, and it’s hard sometimes to tell them apart from the real ABBA.
It’s the same thing with Dreams, the Fleetwood Mac Tribute Band, who will be representing the U.S. They apparently look and sound just like the original members of Fleetwood Mac.
Then there’s the Boom Chucka Boys, who will actually be performing the night before at the Canadian Beerfest at the Westward Ag Society Arena. Influenced by the music of Johnny Cash, Dwight Yoakam, Elvis Presley, CCR, Dierks Bentley and Zac Brown, the Boom Chucka Boys play a mash-up of country, rock n’ roll, gospel and soul. Their unique sound got them nominated for the Canadian Country Music Association's 2014 Group/Duo of The Year.
The World Snowmobile Showcase will undoubtedly be one of the highlights of the WSI. Tickets are available now, and the Trailblazers recommend that you get them in advance. Visit the WSI website for more info.
