What’s Up? The local music scene Episode #4
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, 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 here from these episodes on Gonzo Okanagan & K96.3 Kelowna’s Classic Rock is to reach out and bring some awareness and light into the local Central Okanagan 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!

This weekends local music feature will be focused on an awesome friend, local talented singer/ songwriter and outstanding human in general… Rob Schaefer!
Find all Robby’s music and show him some love by checking his website out sharing this article. The support is very much appreciated in these crazy times.
Robby is a fantastic down to earth type writer who is loved by so many friends and fans around the area. Once you meet the guy, you’ll absolutely love him.
He works hard all day everyday then he picks up his guitar around a campfire on a Saturday night and will sing until the sun comes up with endless classic covers and his unique and heartfelt original tunes.
I’m super excited to feature Robby this week and one of my (and many others) favourite songs of his called “Would Anything Matter”.
Keep up the great work brother because listening to your music, made me happy and made my day!
Have yourselves a rockin week. Be safe out there.
Please check out Robby’s song that he did all the performing and vocals and video called Magic Shoes! Love it!
