LegZZ


funtastic music festival port alberni

LegZZ is the ultimate tribute to Legends ZZ Top LegZZ is a polished tribute band with an incredible stage show appealing to audiences of all ages.

What separates LegZZ from other tribute groups, is their attention to detail in the show. The authentic long beards, perfectly performed music, vocals and moves. This is completed by period-perfect custom built guitars, including the fuzzy spinning ones.

Every show is a fun and memorable event. Their 90 minute extravaganza encompasses the entire ZZ Top Catalogue from the 70's to present day.

Who Made Who is without a doubt the most unrivaled tribute to ACDC around. the power of Who Made Who mirrors the true strength, energy, impeccable sound, and larger than life stage production of an ACDC show.

Baby Jane
baby jane funtastic music festival port alberni

Baby Jane was founded some 16 odd years ago by Shelley Beeston and Robert Pegg. The two core members still form the nucleus of what may be Vancouver`s longest standing club band to date. Spending 4 years as a house band for the Buffalo Club in downtown Vancouver, as well as continuing to work in the Lower Mainland/Vancouver Island area on a regular basis, has kept the band in top form.

Nick Hagar [U4] joins Baby Jane on bass and Chris Murray Driver [Doug & The Slugs] rounds out the line-up on drums; both talented professionals in the Vancouver music scene. High energy rhythm section Brian Kehoe and Zack Friend rock the island.

From the Grey Cup after party for 2000+ people, to the local club for 200 people, it`s always the same commitment to good music and great times. Recent shows of note include the press conference at the Westin Bayshore Vancouver for the upcoming 2014 Rock & Roll Marathon, a fundraiser at the Qualicum Civic Center, and a tenure at the newly re-opened Point Pub in Port Moody.

A current and diversified set-list, coupled with the always stunning voice of Shelley Beeston, continues to captivate audiences in every prestigious club featuring live music entertainment in Western Canada!

Port Alberni's own Lance Lapointe will be opening for Funtastic this year and we couldn't be happier.
