VIDEO: Sam Roberts Band rocks Kelowna

Okanagan fans treated to Canadian rocker, whose performance raised over $10,000 for Music Counts



Okanagan fans weren’t the only ones treated at the Sam Roberts Band concert Sunday night at the Kelowna Community Theatre.

The Canadian rocker’s performance raised over $10,000 for MusiCounts, which will go towards schools that otherwise are going to lose a music program.

Live Nation and SiriusXM presented the all-ages concert with all proceeds going to MusiCounts. The show was filmed and recorded for broadcast on Sirius.

The packed house of fans were treated to all of the hits, along with many from the sixth full-length album, TerraForm.

Roberts also wasn’t shy with the crowd – high fiving fans in the front row. He even jumped off stage to walk around and greet and hug those in the crowd.
