with Covid still active and new restrictions in place, we are choosing to do mini "photo reviews" for as many shows as we can this year

restrictions limit us to grabbing a few shots during the first 2 or 3 songs and then we need to be on our way

Lake Country's Garcia Band found themselves with the opportunity to open for The Heels, one of BC's hottest new country bands, on the weekend and they took full advantage of it.

As with most opening sets, they were limited to just a few songs. However, they managed to cover a lot of stylistic territroy within those tunes. Covering everybody from Gretchen Wilson to Alannah Myles, One Republic to Bon Jovi, and others, they still managed to sneak in one of lead vocalist Jenn Boal's originals.

This band came out firing on all cylinders, clearly intending to give a good accounting of themselves in front of the large Live in Lake Country crowd at Swalwell Park. Each member displayed more than enough chops and more importantly, the band played cohesively as a unit. That's just another way of saying they were tight and delivered great groove and feel.

Not an easy task; opening for a massively popular band, but if it were to be considered a test, I dare say that Garcia Band passed it with flying colours.
