ChrisStrei.com for more info!

​(pronounced "stray")
Chris Strei is a country singer/songwriter whose style has been compared with Chris Stapleton and Bob Dylan. Chris draws on his own life experiences for inspiration in his music. With compositions influenced by blues, bluegrass and also some elements of hard rock and metal, Chris's songs tell stories with a relatable point of view. It's fair to say he's not the only one who deals with these situations and themes. Since the end of 2017, Chris has come a long way in a short time: Following an opportunity to open for the Juno-nominated band The Trews in December, he embraced a philosophy that you miss 100% of the shots you don't take. In June 2018, Chris embarked on his cross-Canada BlackBird Tour from Ontario to Alberta; he accepted an opportunity to perform his song "Love You Anyhow" with Juno-nominated folk and pop singer Dayna Manning in August; and in September he cracked the Top 25 in The Shot, Canada's Premiere Singing Competition.

In Summer 2019, Chris will release his full-length album, Moonshine. Produced with Iain McNally and featuring drums by Rick Roach, Moonshine is a collection of 10 dynamic songs that touch on various topics and styles, from the gritty, fan-favourite "Prison Bound Man," to the sweet commitment of "Love You Anyhow," to the date-night glow of a dashboard light on Moonshine's title track. Chris is currently rolling out previews of the album on his blog, The Moonshine Blog on ChrisStrei.com!

Neu Mannas
Matty Carolei
Ryan Stead
Cole Friesen

Midway through a decade of being on the road. Neu & Matty starting playing together in Head of the Herd. From that moment, it was obvious they would be rocking and/or rolling for many miles to come.

After touring & making records in England, Wales, the Southern U.S. of A, and throughout their home and native land of Canada, they decided to lock themselves in a tiny dark room and become the band they always wanted to be.

A James Brown/Lemmy love child nobody asked for.

Presenting... The Matchstick Skeletons.

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.
