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!

Owlhead – based out of the Okanagan and its, “2 dudes making some music.” as they state on their Facebook page. I had to do some digging around just to find out who they were exactly. Turns out it’s a fellow drummer that I performed with a few years back in the Younguns! Owlhead is Don Mutter (kick ass drummer vocalist) and Adam Gabert (guitarist/producer). I Highly recommend giving their couple singles a listen. 1st single featuring the song “Blue Sky”. New music from these dudes is on the way soon as well so keep your eyes and ears open for them!
Thanks for supporting live music and loving music in general. It’s an essential part of all our lives and our mental health.
Have yourselves a safe and Rockin weekend. Be safe out there and don’t forget to get your poppy’s!
