SILLY WRABBIT - July 26th and July 27th
On July 26 and 27, Silly Wrabbit will be making some noise at The Venue Bar and Grill. Silly Wrabbit has been making people bob their heads to our tunes and shake their heads to our jokes for over 20 years. In fact, in 2019 they are celebrating their 25th anniversary. From the 1970s boogie woogie and 1980s one hit wonders, to 1990s hip hop and big radio hits from the 2000s, they have a wide assortment of the greatest songs to party to, and then add a healthy dose of tongue-in-cheek humour and choreography to keep audiences entertained all night. Silly Wrabbit just spent five years as the house band at the Wildhorse Pub in the Deerfoot Inn & Casino, while having fun entertaining at various corporate functions and private parties, and are looking forward to touring around to visit local pubs and other cool venues for 2019.
