King Eddy Five-Year Anniversary: The Dungarees (King Eddy Rooftop)

Cheers to five years! The King Eddy is hosting a five-day musical celebration featuring an eclectic mix of live music from June 28 to July 2 in honour of the Eddy’s five-year anniversary.

We’re celebrating five years since reopening, but the King Eddy goes back 118 years! Established in 1905, the King Edward Hotel was Calgary’s second oldest hotel and the longest operating bar and hotel when it closed in 2004. After over a decade of silence, the revitalized King Eddy re-opened as a live music venue, restaurant, and bar in 2018 as part of the National Music Centre development. Today, the Eddy continues as a cornerstone of music, community, and culture, building on its storied musical legacy.

On June 30, country outfit The Dungarees will headline a free concert on our iconic rooftop patio in salute to the country music community who made the King Eddy a home for country music in Calgary.

This show takes place on the King Eddy Rooftop. Doors open at 7:00 pm.

About The Dungarees

A staple in the Canadian country music scene, The Dungarees have a definitive musical mandate- take the undeniable lyrical styling, soaring telecaster and steel guitar inherent in classic country, and inject it with harmony, modern intensity and pop sensibility to make it all their own.

Riding the momentum of their hit singles “Don’t Look Back”, “Anywhere With You” and “I’m Down”, The Dungarees skyrocketed up the Australian country charts, entering the Top-10 at radio, peaking at #6. The band had the pleasure of recording with legendary Nashville hit-maker, the multi-Grammy Award winning producer Paul Worley, and are frequent collaborators with Juno Award winning Canadian producers Russell Broom and Bart McKay.

The Dungarees have performed on celebrated festival stages including Boots and Hearts, Big Valley Jamboree, Calgary Stampede, Country Thunder, Dauphin CountryFest, Sunfest and the Tamworth Country Music Festival. The band has been humbled and honoured to serve as direct support for country music icons Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, Reba McEntire, Dwight Yoakam and Alabama.
