BC/DC, Canada’s own AC/DC tribute band is coming to 100 Mile House on July 6, and it’s ready to crank out the same sound and energy that made its model, AC/DC, a timeless legend within the music industry.
Hosted by the South Cariboo charity organization, Hun City Hunnies Non Profit Community Improvement Society, the band will perform at South Cariboo Rec. Centre.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and local DJ Maestro Kit will open the show at 7 p.m. with rock ‘n’ roll tunes before BC/DC takes the stage at 8 p.m. for an evening of unforgettable music and artistry.
Hunnies spokesperson Amanda Usher says she’s seen BC/DC perform four times and has been “blown away” each time.
“They bring in huge crowds and have great energy.”
She notes this concert will be the Hunnies’ debut event.
While BC/DC succeeds in mimicking the Australian hard rock band AC/DC to a tee, it also manages to mock it in a comical way.
Lead guitarist MadCow, who impersonates AC/DC’s Angus Young, has occasionally been known to dress as a cow while performing, and it’s not unheard of for the band to claim the music as its own, and scoff at some BC/DC tribute band from Australia.
The act is tongue-in-cheek, but the band is rich in musical talent and has wowed audiences in Vancouver, New York, Las Vegas, Whistler, Victoria, Edmonton and Banff.
The Hunnies is a group of six young women who counts among its purposes, benefiting and contributing to local charitable causes, community projects and community events.
Profits from the show will be donated to local organizations, such as 100 Mile House Waterpark Society, Canadian Mental Health Association, and future local projects, events and fundraisers.
Tickets for the concert are $25 each, or $20 with the donation of a non-perishable food item for the 100 Mile House Food Bank Society. They can be purchased at Andre’s Electronic Experts 100 Mile House and Sight n’ Sound in Williams Lake. People must be 19 year of age an older to attend.
Anyone who can volunteer to work at the concert is asked to call Nadaya McNeil at 250-395-0873.
