The Essence of Rock and Roll  – “Three Guitars and  Back Beat”. Well, this “band of brothers”,  Evan Boechler (rhythm and lead vocals), Braden Boechler (lead guitar and vocals) Landon Boechler (drums, vocals) and their fetching bass player, Jen Perry had it in spades. A Kimberley resident came across the band in performance near Edmonton and recommended them as Rock and Roll participants in the Studio 64 Spring Concert Series at Centre 64. To get from their home base in Spruce Grove, Alberta (just west of Edmonton) is a big trip and I hope the band enjoyed performing for this very pumped audience. They kicked off the evening with an original tune called One Little Bat an then worked their way through some classic Rock and Roll such as  Credence Clearwater’s Have you Seen the Rain? and Bad Moon Rising, the Beatles Come Together, Shake Rattle and Roll, The Rolling Stones Honky Tonk Woman, Johnny Cash’s Folsom Prison Blues, Chuck Berry’s Johnny B. Good, The Tragically Hip’s New Orleans and for a “party piece” Evan and Landon got together on the drum kit to do a duet on the classic surf tune Wipe Out. To show their appreciation the audience just got up and danced beside and in front of the stage. Here are images from the night.
