Stampede at the King Eddy with The Heels

From July 9-17, King Eddy will be transformed into a swingin’ Stampede saloon. So whether you’re warming up for a night of boot stompin’ or winding down from a day on the midway, come kick it at Calgary’s legendary live music venue.

Pop-country queens The Heels hit the King Eddy stage as part of Stampede at the King Eddy.

Stampede at the King Eddy will run on the main floor and rooftop, July 9-17 from 11:00 am to close, with the exception of Sundays and Mondays, which will be open with reduced hours from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm. Seating is first come, first served during Stampede.

About The Heels:
There’s a sound that isn’t heard enough on country radio—the sound of organic, three-part female harmonies, offering stories that speak the language of modern women everywhere. Add in some good-natured brash and sassy attitude and you’ve got Canada’s pop-country queens, The Heels. That title is now undisputed with the release of the trio’s warmly received 2018 debut album, Love, Heels and multiple follow-up singles, alongside BCCMA Award wins. Although Bobbi Smith, Brittni Dominelli and Kyla Rawlins have spent much of these past three years winning over audiences with a dynamic live show that showcases each of their distinctive voices and personalities, they also found time to write over 100 songs during several trips to Nashville—and at their home base in Vancouver— for upcoming sophomore album titled “I Am”. By incorporating influences ranging from classic country, gospel and Motown, through to powerful contemporary female artists such as Sheryl Crow, Carrie Underwood and Whitney Houston, The Heels’ music, although it may be categorized as country, display a unique musical vision that transcends the genre.

About Stampede at the King Eddy:
In honour of Calgary’s favourite 10 days of the year, King Eddy is bringing you a roundup of sizzlin’ hot tunes for Stampede. Catch this all-Canadian country lineup all day and all night on a historic stage just 600 metres from Stampede Park.

Special thanks to our talent sponsor Craig Senyk Initiatives for supporting live music on the main floor and rooftop patio throughout Stampede.

Sound production equipment for the King Eddy is provided by PK Sound and Yamaha.
