Kelowna, BC - Rebellious Unicorns Production Company Inc. (RUPC) and the Kelowna Community Theatre (KCT) are teaming up to bring live music back to the city in a safe and physically-distanced way. Kelowna-based rock band, Lucky Monkey, will perform at the KCT on Saturday, September 19, 2020 at 7:00 pm (PDT), with the show being broadcast on the new streaming service, Unicorns.LIVE. The concert serves as a pilot project for an on-going partnership with KCT to provide live-streamed entertainment offerings while large gatherings are still prohibited due to the pandemic.
Lucky Monkey is a rock band from Kelowna that blends the soul of old-school 70's rock with the energy and polish of the 21st Century to create music that speaks to fans both new and old. The band’s sound is melodic, crunching, and accessible. Lucky Monkey has supported big names acts such as Danko Jones, The Lazys, Harlequin, and Bret Michaels, and has performed for the Vancouver Canucks on three occasions. They are a band of brothers whose passion for writing and performing music has led them to the top of their local scene and knocking on the door of discovery.
The performance will consist of one live 45-minute show at KCT, produced by and broadcast live on Unicorns.LIVE, and will not feature a live audience. Anyone who purchases their livestream access before 7:00 pm (PDT) on September 12, 2020 (one week before the show) will be entered to win an in-person experience with the band for up to 6 people in one “social pod”. Three draws will be made live on the Lucky Monkey Facebook page on Sunday, September 13, 2020.
“Since the start of the pandemic, we have been working to find ways to bring live entertainment back in a safe way,” says Unicorns.LIVE Executive Producer, Dustyn Baulkham. “Music and art is at the heart of society, and we hope this partnership with KCT is a step towards future collaborations for employing artists while providing high-quality live entertainment.”
