Blenz on Bernard is looking to help support the local Kelowna artist community, so check it out Saturday May 18th where we will be featuring an acoustic show by Wild Son from 7-9pm.
Wild Son is a groove based folk rock quartet out of Kelowna, BC. This band was born as a two piece acoustic/percussion group 2 years ago in Winnipeg, MB. Since migrating west there have been two new members join. Wild Son is now composed of various musical personalities. This includes the funkiest drummer/bassist combination throwing down the freshest grooves, locked in with a high energy violinist/fiddler that you will never forget, with a catchy singer/songwriter identity. The moment these four musicians collaborated they knew they were meant to write and perform music together. From a mellow, sit down acoustic style to a high energy, dance til’ you drop feeling, Wild Son has an ear to please a crowd on any occasion.
