Kelowna’s the Wild started of their set  with a slower version of  their  radio single “ Roadhouse,” and quickly took off from there. They  rocked like the bastard sons of AC DC with plenty of  gritty guitar riffs, raspy vocals and high kicks.

One  Bad Son’s Shane Volk. photo by Richard Amery The spirit of Bonn Scott era AC DC is strong in the Wild as they tore things up with lots of raw power, energy and  gritty guitar riffs plus shout along harmonies.

 The ripped it up with a metal version of “Rattlesnake Shake,” added a few new songs and several from their just released CD.

“ What About You was a Highlight” as was “Straight to Hell” and their latest single  “Party Til You’re Dead ” was in there as well, though it was hard to tell.
Saskatoon born, Vancouver based rock band One Bad Son get better and better and are just starting to hit their stride.

 Frontman Shane Volk strutted around like a rock star, belted out lyrics like Bon Jovi. He showed off his huge voice.
 Drummer Kurt Dahl was  a blur behind his drum kit and played a  huge drum solo as well as numerous fills. Bassist Adam Grant held  down a solid, driving beat and guitarist Adam Hicks supplied all the big riffs you needed.

Their  big hit “Scarecrow” was a high octane highlight and was reminiscent of their latest single “Black Buffalo” as Volk shouted “we’re shooting a video for this, so you might be in it.”
 they played their hits and deep cuts off their albums including several off the latest “ Black Buffalo.”

 They ended their set with their scorching, bass heavy cover of  the Talking Heads’ “ Psycho Killer”
They were called aback for an encore of several more songs.
