Reaching far beyond any genre or label, Shinedown’s uplifting anthem “GET UP” – which has become a crossover hit at Hot AC after spending several weeks at #1 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Songs Chart – has quickly became a beacon of light for listeners around the globe, offering an urgent and universal message of hope, empathy and encouragement that has been connecting with those going through hardships of all types and those supporting loved ones who may be struggling. Speaking to the human spirit in a time of need, “GET UP” was born from a very personal place, inspired by Brent watching his friend, Shinedown bassist Eric Bass, deal with clinical depression. Shinedown recently released a stunning new piano version of the song, propelled by the undeniable power of front man Brent Smith’s voice. PRESS HERE to listen to “GET UP (Piano Version).”
“GET UP” has racked up more than 37 million streams, landed the band on Live with Kelly and Ryan, and was heard during the Walter Payton Award during the Super Bowl Pregame show among other television spots. Garnering praise from the likes of HuffPost, Salon, Rolling Stone, Consequence of Sound, Buzzfeed, Parade, Grammy.com, Popdust, No Depression and more with key playlisting on Spotify and Apple Music, “GET UP” broke a new record for Shinedown giving the band the most Rock Airplay Top 10s ever and their 13th #1 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Songs Chart (the second most in the history of the chart, tied with Van Halen).

Internationally acclaimed Euro-Caribbean vocal group Boney M. featuring original lead singer Liz Mitchell is set to perform in Penticton on Saturday, December 7 at the South Okanagan Events Centre. Performing all their classic hits and holiday favourites – ONE NIGHT ONLY!
Tickets are $35.00, $55.00, $65.00 and $85.00* and will go on sale to the general public Friday, June 14 at 10am. Tickets can be purchased in person at the Valley First Box Office at the SOEC, by phone 1.877.763.2849 or online HERE.
Boney M. was not only THE disco cult band of the 70’s and 80’s but remains a living legend of the entire disco era. Originally founded in Germany by writer and producer Frank Farian, Boney M. was one of the disco-orientated pop acts which dominated the European charts throughout the late seventies and early eighties with a string of hits well remembered to this day. Farian moulded the four piece band in the dance pop fashion, featuring the stunning vocals of Liz Mitchell, which proved irresistible to radio, dance floor and partygoers.
The biography of Boney M.’s hits is extensive. The group had eight Number One hits in the European charts, has sold over 100 million records worldwide and is known for huge international hits such ‘Daddy Cool’, ‘Sunny’, ‘Ma Baker’, ‘Belfast’, ‘Rivers of Babylon’, ‘Brown Girl in the Ring’, ‘Rasputin’ and ‘Mary’s Boy Child’.
In addition to the successes of Boney M.’s singles was the success of three Number One albums in the European market: Take the Heat off Me, Nightflight to Venus, Love for Sale. Now in the 21st Century, there is obviously no doubt that songs from the past are far more popular than ever before. Boney M.’s international success during the past twenty five years has proven that their hits definitely belong to the collection of timeless classics.
Opening for Boney M. is New York-based soul singer, songwriter Morgan James. Her most recent studio album, “Reckless Abandon” is her first as an independent artist, and it is her most personal outing yet, prompting the Huffington Post to call Morgan James the “Brightest Breakout Artist of the Year”. This year, Morgan also took on a full album cover of the Beatles’ iconic ‘White Album’ to celebrate the 50th anniversary; available on CD, vinyl, digital and full length concept video on her YouTube channel. Morgan recorded two full-length albums with Epic Records: “Hunter”, an album of original soul and R&B, and “Morgan James Live”, a tribute to Nina Simone. Morgan’s music videos have accumulated more than 175 million views (and climbing).

The Heart of Wine Country™
The Okanagan Falls Winery Association brings together the valley’s premiere wineries to offer you an exceptional tour and tasting of award winning wines.
With Okanagan Falls at its heart, vineyards stretch Northwards along the East Bench of Skaha Lake and across the water to Kaleden and then South over rolling hills above Vaseux Lake.
Over tens of thousands of years a series of glaciers, up to 3 kilometres thick, carved a great valley out the of mountains that we now call the Okanagan. In places it is deeper than the Grand Canyon. The retreating ice mass left behind long benches of fertile soil and a series of spectacular lakes. Our region of the South Okanagan is a unique climatic zone known as a semi-arid steppe, the final stage of a desert area that extends up from the United States. Along with that comes long warm days and cool nights that retain the acidity in the grapes and helps shape their distinctive character and flavours.
Oliver Osoyoos Wine Country starts at McIntyre Bluff, north of Oliver, and extends right to the Canada/USA border, just south of Osoyoos.
Similkameen Independent Winegrowers, formerly the Similkameen Wineries Association, is a group of like-minded vignerons based in the Similkameen Valley bound by common values and a commitment to our land, each with a passion for creating world-class wines and ciders that express our unique wine region.
