Rock 'n' Roll Picnic..Roots & Fruits Kick-off

Friday, August 16, 2019 - 18:00

Back by (very) popular demand, mark your calendars for the second annual Rock & Roll Picnic, 6:00 – 10:00 pm on Friday, August 16th.

DAVE D in the Role of TOM PETTY

Dave D is emerging as one of North America’s premier Tom Petty Tribute Artists.  Most recently he has appeared at the Blue Frog Studios Vancouver, Penticton Peachfest, RAW Artist Ovation Vancouver, Vancouver Island Exhibition, andnumerous Theatre Shows.

He is available in all formats: solo, duo, trio and of course the full band Heartbreaker’s rock and roll experience with his Vancouver based band Perfectly Petty.

A true dead ringer in look, style, sound, and performance, Dave has thrilled and transported audiences with his ability to honor the artist whose music has touched millions of people worldwide for decades. Dave D as Tom Petty embodies the spirit of Tom Petty and performs with a connection to the spirit of rock and roll that Tom Petty was integral in cultivating. Dave D’s performances conjure up the truth of Petty’s music and creates a magic that must be seen to be believed.

Opening for for Perfectly Petty is Okanagan Based Band, Hot Ticket. Together since late 2017, Hot Ticket lays down a juicy bed of banjo, guitar and bass, taking you on a musical journey to… somewhere between Venice beach and the Ozarks.

Come hungry!

The evening will feature a fresh corn roast and gourmet hotdogs by some of Oliver’s very best chefs. Firehall Brewery beer and Oliver Osoyoos Wine Country red / white wine sangria as well as non-alcoholic drinks and Hawaiian Shave Ice will be available for purchase.
