         Mahoney
 Mahoney is an acoustic duo made up of Trent Roset and Ryan Massini. Based out of Medicine Hat, they have established themselves as one of Alberta's most sought-after entertainers. Established in 2000, they have performed well over a thousand shows across Western Canada. The duo produces a surprisingly large sound as Ryan and Trent will often play multiple instruments simultaneously. Mahoney has amassed a constantly expanding repertoire of over 600 cover songs, ranging from Snoop Dogg to Johnny Cash; from Toto to Tool. They establish a rapport with the audience through engagement, humour and crowd participation, including "Mahoney-oke" where audience members of the audience are encouraged to perform live karaoke with the group. Mahoney is the ultimate, all request party band.

Description

Henderson Lake Park is a 47 hectare (117 acre) blend of relaxed leisure 
and active recreation opportunities concentrated around a 60 acre 
man-made lake. Paved and shale walking trails border Henderson 
Lake, along with playgrounds, rest areas and picnic sites. 
Concession is open during the summer months.  
 
Henderson Park has been a focus of civic pride for more than 85 
years. Originally developed for the 7th International Dry-Farming 
Congress in 1912, it continues to be an attraction for special event 
celebrations. The lake itself was originally a large slough. William 
Henderson, the Mayor of Lethbridge during the early preparations 
for the Farming Congress, was instrumental in initiating the 
concept of Henderson Lake and a surrounding park.  
 It is home to  the annual Dragon Boat Festival in july as well as Canada Day celebrations.
