Willhorse and Retrofied play final Summer Kicks performance

Willhorse is returning to Spirit Square to finish off the Summer Kicks series with the final performance on Wednesday Aug. 14.

They kicked off the summer with the pre Canada Day concert, and now Willhorse is returning to Spirit Square to finish off the Summer Kicks series with the final performance on Wednesday Aug. 14.

Golden’s own southern rock band has been tirelessly touring ever since their debut CD release in late 2012. Now they’re back to perform in front of the home crowd.

“It’s unbelievable how many local people have grabbed onto our music and our sound, and really embraced it and supported it,” lead singer Jeremy Borschneck told the Golden Star.

The quartet also features Branden Winterholt on guitar and vocals, Nick Petrowich playing the drums, as well as Todd Menzies on bass.

Since forming in Golden nearly two years ago (although the members had played together previously) they have toured right across the country, recorded an album, made the top 20 in Vancouver’s Peak Performance Project, and have shared the stage with Said the Whale, 54-40, The Breakmen, Leeroy Stagger, Elliot Brood and Shred Kelley.

On Aug. 14 they get to share the stage with local band Retrofied, playing covers of some of your favourites.

The final Summer Kicks performance starts in Spirit Square at 7 p.m.
