SILLY WRABBIT - NOV 22 AND 23
Silly Wrabbit has been making people bob their heads to our tunes and shake their heads to our jokes for more than 20 years. This year they celebrate their 25th anniversary. From 70s boogie-woogie, 80s one-hit wonders, 90s hip hop, and hits from the 2000s, they have a wide assortment of the greatest songs to party to. They also add a healthy dose of tongue-in-cheek humour and choreography to keep audiences entertained all night. They just spent five years as the house band at the Wildhorse Pub in the Deerfoot Inn and 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.
