Tinhorn Creek announces Canadian Concert series lineup

Tinhorn Creek Vineyards is offering a season pass gift certificate for their 2013 Canadian Concert Series.

The annual event is a rare opportunity to see some of Canada’s top talent while sipping award-winning wines and enjoying a breathtaking view of the South Okanagan Valley.

Tinhorn Creek’s Canadian Concert Series kicks off on May 25 with Brickhouse, known as Vancouver’s hardest working band. Together for over 16 years, this funk band has a huge repertoire to keep you dancing all night. June 22 features the high energy and phenomenal musicianship of Jackie Treehorn. Funky, upbeat original tunes with a retro flavour and sassy dance choreography will have the dance floor bumping when this six-person troupe hits the stage.

On July 27 the roots-rock sounds of The Matinée evokes memories of family camping trips, men with guitars around the campfire belting out tunes while rising tempos bring everyone to their feet.

On Aug. 24 Five Alarm Funk brings their horn-powered percussion-fuelled sonic and visual assault to Tinhorn. An unstoppable orgy of energy on stage, Five Alarm Funk’s 10 musicians perform intricate arrangements with delirious dance moves and full on headbanging. Watch for choreographed arm movements coinciding with melodic climaxes while the four percussionists create a true spectacle.

Tinhorn Creek’s outdoor amphitheatre sits atop the winery’s hillside overlooking the famed Golden Mile, and is a one-of-a-kind venue for dancing the night away under the stars. For $100, the season pass includes one ticket to each of the four concerts in the series, and works out to getting four concerts for the price of three. Individual tickets for each show are priced as following: Brickhouse $20, Jackie Treehorn $20, The Matinée $40 and Five Alarm Funk $40. All concerts start at 7 p.m., with gates opening at 6:30 p.m. Certificate must be redeemed for concert tickets — it is not valid for concert admission. Minors allowed if accompanied by an adult.

The Canadian Concert Series season passes are available for purchase through Tinhorn Creek’s online store www.tinhorn.com, Facebook store, or by telephone at 250-498-3743.
