When we all as a community watch with despair, horror & wonder, watching a fire that lights up the midnight sky, it bonds us… for life.

We all remember how we felt, who we were with & how others made us feel.  The fires have been & are devastating. They impact many areas, businesses & have taken money right out of people’s pockets.

Brad Krauza with Gonzo Okanagan is no stranger to fundraisers for others & he plans on raising funds and splitting the funds in half for The West Kelowna Fire Fighters Charitable Fund while the other half will be shared with local musicians who will be playing at the event.

Krauza said he asked local musicians who were all affected by the fires & there wasn’t a band or a musician that didn’t lose a gig & he’s hoping to support a few that need it.

Donate to our local musicians! Scan the code or, click on it or the link to the right of it and it will take you right to the donate to local musicians tab. All the proceeds from this total will be divided between all the musicians who will be donating their time for the cause on Sept 17th, 2023!


A silent auction will be happening along with live music from 11am – 11pm Sunday September 17th at Whiski-Jacks Pub in West Kelowna.

Anyone who wants to drop off a silent auction item can do so at Whiski-Jack’s Pub in West Kelowna or Nor-Val Rentals West Kelowna attention Angie Clowry.

Krauza says he’s so impressed with what the fire fighters are doing & have done in the valley over the decades that he’s lived here and thanks them for their tireless efforts & hopes a few of them may stop by to be thanked & shake some hands during our event.

Publisher and CEO. First & foremost, father, son, brother and uncle. I am also a huge music fan, promoter and marketing & promotions maniac. As a fulltime musician for the past 35 years myself (yikes, that’s a long time!), I’ve come to appreciate the fact that I am able to perform and sing for people and in return, them enjoy it as much as I do. There is something to be said for that exchange of energy and good vibes that live music brings to all, from the stage to the seats, there is nothing like it and I so look forward to feeling that again when we are out of this crazy mess we are in. Music is needed desperately in everyone’s lives. The goal is to reach out and bring some awareness and light into the music scene by featuring their new music, events and in general, some light into the changes we’ve all had to adjust to in 2020. We all feel the strain in every aspect of these changes and are going to try to do our best to fill our cups up with some fantastic local music while many so of us hang on through this bumpy ride we are on. ? Making an effort to change our own thoughts and habits, can strike a chord mentally and change us along with our communities lives. Be safe and…let’s ROCK N ROLL!
