Keep the Stampede fireworks going with the glorious return of Hot Little Rocket at the legendary the King Eddy — one night only!
In honour of Calgary’s favourite 10 days of the year, the King Eddy is bringing you a multi-genre roundup of sizzlin’ hot tunes for Stampede 2019. Catch this country-and-more lineup all day and all night on a historic stage just 600 metres from Stampede Park.
About Hot Little Rocket:
Guitarist Aaron Smelski and bassist Mark MacArthur, veterans in the Calgary scene, recruited guitarist Andrew Wedderburn in a classified ad. Drummer Joel Nye already had a long history of drumming for various bands in Saskatchewan, even before he joined the band. Their debut, Laika, came out in March 2000. Recorded by Marc Schroder and mixed by Dave Alcock, the disc was well received in their homeland and abroad. The follow-up, Danish Documentary, was unveiled in September 2001. Recorded by Tylor Scollon, the album cemented their strong position in the Calgary music community. Chris Vail added keyboards and extra vocals, while Barb Noad added extra vocals as well.
Sound production equipment for the King Eddy is provided by PK Sound and Yamaha.
