Pure Casino  Lethbridge opened the summer season with their annual party in the parking lot— Pure Summerfest .  The combination car show and afternoon concert was Saturday afternoon June 8.


There were a plethora of classic cars on display and plenty of  local artisans next to the stage,  set up in the middle of the Casino Lethbridge parking lot .

I  missed Pete Cormier and Meg Thompson from Peter and the Wolves and  L’omelette playing a duo set, but would catch them later that night. 


Rebel Angels  ’50s were an ideal fit for a classic car show.


The band including  Ben Lamb lead vocals ; Keith Lamb guitar/vocals ; Rod Cahoon/bass vocals ; Mitch Rasmussen drums  and Gary Drayton playing keyboards and  vocals played ’ their usual fine set of ’50s favourites, encourage the audience to sing along with “ Let’s Go the The Hop.”


 They followed it up with Buddy Holly’s “ Oh Boy.”


They were a lot of fun. Gary Drayton played some excellent keyboards and band added superb multi-part vocal harmonies.


One highlight was  Johnny O’ Keefe’s “Real Wild Child,” which Iggy Pop repopularized in the ’80s with his punk and new wave cover.
