Creekside Theatre is Ready to Rock

Creekside Theatre is Ready to Rock


This Thursday night, Creekside Theatre will ‘rock out’ to three fantastic local rock bands: //AMISTAD//, CYNK, and Windmills. All three groups have a distinct, unique rock sound that combined, will create an elaborate musical tapestry for the audience this week. The trio of young talent will showcase the different sounds of rock music ranging from punk, alternative sounds from CYNK, alternative, unique rock sounds of //AMISTAD//, and polished, lyrically driven, Indie rock of Windmills.

//AMISTAD//, a local Vernon group, began taking shape when three of the members were in elementary school. Now in high school, these young talented musicians are shaping the alternative rock music landscape at a rapid pace. The last few years have been filled with a new CD release (2015), a new EP release earlier this year (2016), competing in the CBC Music Searchlight contest, and most excitedly, winning the Telus Storyhive grant to produce their music video for Human, their second single off their EP, Talk Peace to a Wolf. For Aidan (lead vocals, keys, ukulele, guitar), Nolan (bass, trumpet, vocals), Carson (drums, percussion), Craig (piano, synth, organ, vocals), and Eli (guitar, violin, vocals), they are eager to continue in their musical journey, and continue to grow as musicians and performers.

If the last few years are any indication, the sky is the limit for the band as they set their sights on a solid long-term career in the music industry playing venues ranging in size from the Orpheum to the 02 Arena.

In addition to //AMISTAD//, Thursday’s ‘Rock the Block’ will feature CYNK, a 4-piece Lake Country band who burst onto the scene first playing Music in the Park, and IPE with their edgy, punk alternative rock style. Also formed through connecting in high school, this group of guys has been working hard to write and release their own material in a dynamic way. Not forgetting their roots, earlier this year, CYNK filmed, with the help of a friend, their first music video highlighting the Lake Country and Oyama region hoping to showcase the beauty and uniqueness of the area.  CYNK released their first album Strings this spring and is eagerly working on new material and performing local shows.

To round out the trio of young talent, Windmills will be taking the stage Thursday night as well. Since going solo in 2012, one-man band Cory Myraas has been honing his craft, creating a unique style of alternative rock using looping technology in combination with classically produced sound. As the name ‘windmills’ suggests, the evolving music and writing of Windmills is always moving.

Balancing an intricate wall of sound created by utilizing looping techniques and instrumentation, with audience interaction, Windmills’ solo act is a unique live concert experience. This past fall, Windmills released his newest 10-track album Measures, and is currently on a 17-stop tour throughout Western Canada. Humble, and passionate about his craft, Windmills continues to move.

Be sure to check out this incredible night of local, young talent on Thursday, September 30th at Creekside Theatre in Lake Country. For more info and tickets for ‘Rock the Block’ visit: or call 250-766-9309.
