ATLANTIC CROSSING

Atlantic Crossing presents three incredible shows in one with tributes to the best in British Pop music, including the Beatles, Rod Stewart and Elton John.

Atlantic Crossing has one of the most authentic Rod Stewart tributes you will ever see or hear. From the stylish suits and signature stage moves and a voice that’s so close that you’ll swear its Rod himself, Brent Stewart sets a new high standard for Rod Stewart tributes.

Every bit as energetic and flamboyant as Sir Elton, this is an exciting retrospective of one of the U.Ks most outrageous and enduring performers. From his 70’s rockers to the sing along favorites, audiences love these timeless classics.

THUNDERSTRUCK

Thunderstruck was established in 1996 by long time friends, singer, Ken Stone and, drummer, Tim Chudyk. The band started slowly at first, building fans one club at a time. News of this killer AC/DC band spread quickly. Over the years, Thunderstruck has built a huge legion of loyal, diehard fans throughout North America.

By 2005 the band was selling out shows at Vancouver’s Commodore Ballroom, headlining Quesnel’s huge outdoor festival, “Billy Barker Days” and packing them in at Clubs and Casinos. Late in 2009 with a consistent and solid line-up, Thunderstruck decided to outdistance themselves even further from other tribute acts by adding their own unique elements to their live show.

2011 brought Thunderstruck into the world of theatre performances with great success! With huge crowds attending packed monster theatres such as the Port Theatre in Nanaimo and the Cultural Centre in Chilliwack, Thunderstruck, with its new and exciting visual show was very well received by all ages.

Since 1996 to present date, Thunderstruck has survived all music trends and has grown into a well respected name in the industry. With over 100 years of combined stage experience and a Juno Award winner amongst its four members, Thunderstruck may just outlast AC/DC themselves.

AND…..
The Chilliwack Fair is proud to announce the new Creative BC Community Stage! Thanks to Creative BC’s support, the 145th Chilliwack Fair will be able to showcase the incredible musical talent of dozens of local artists all weekend long.
