Main Music Stage


Jake Stoltz and friends will be the MC of the Main Music Stage this year! Jake and his incredibly talented group will be bringing a range of eras with a blend of both rock and country...think back to Waylon and Willie and think today to Luke and Blake. Jake and Apalloosa will also be performing live on Thursday night on the Main Music Stage as a pre show for the Friday and Saturday traditional Barn Dances. 


Apalloosa...This high energy group from Chlliwack is back for 2022! They have been fan favourites at the Barn Dance  Friday and Saturday nights for the past several years. Their sweet vocals paired with top 40 hits are the perfect way to dance the night away. The magic starts at 9pm. Buy tickets for one or both evenings online at

Hat Trick Band

The Hat Trick Band hails from up the road in Vernon. Owen Cook, Terry Dyck, Don Hagen, and Terry Johnson have various backgrounds and a huge amount of musical talent. Their music is based on Classic Rock and Roll, Blues, Country Rock, and ballads. They create an explosion of fantastic dance and entertainment music. 

Hat Trick is a community based group and have performed at Lumby Days, Armstrong Music in the Park, Vernon Sunshine Festival, and the Falkland Stampede to name a few. They love big gigs as much as private parties and neighborhood get togethers. 

These boys love when the crowd joins in with clapping and toe tapping and even singing along. Hat Trick loves crowd participation and dancing is strongly recommended!
