Sweet

 

Sweet

 

70’s British Glam Rockers, Sweet are one of the most influential groups to modern rock and pop music. Their unique blend of Hard Rock and Pop has inspired literally hundreds of commercially successful acts.

Chart topping hits like “Little Willy”, “Ballroom Blitz”, “Action”, “Love is like Oxygen”, “Wig Wam Bam”, “Fox On The Run”, and “Hell Raiser”, represent but a fraction of the bands classic catalog of hits which are sure to be well received by the Rock n Funtastic crowd.

 

8:30pm Opening Performance:

 

Barracuda promo

 

Barracuda

Barracuda is a Heart Tribute band from Vancouver, BC, Canada, the city where Heart got their start! The band brings the music of Heart to life with style and presence like no other. Barracuda is more than just a band playing Heart’s music. It’s a tribute to their history, writing, arranging, musicianship and a nod to their appearance as well.

The set list covers Heart from the beginnings as a recording act, into their biggest hits from the early days and just about everything in between. Barracuda is the most accurate representation you will find of the Heart band.

Aaron Pritchett

 

Ain’t no twang and drawls of country music past… brace yourself because Sunday night comes alive with fun, action, romance and energy. And Aaron Pritchett fans know Aaron’s idea of country music has everything to do with living life to the fullest. There is no doubt that Aaron’s 80's rock roots have had a major influence on his performances.

All that head banging he did as a kid shines through when he whips a stadium full of chanting fans into a frenzy while hammering out a Funtastic theme song- "Hold My Beer" or the classic "Lets Get Rowdy.Get ready to get Country Rocked!

 

8:30pm Opening Performance:

 

Julian Austin

 

Julian Austin

 

Expect Julian Austin to perform such greats as What my Heart Already Knows, Honky Tonk Lock and Key, Little Ol' Kisses, and Diamond, which happens to be one of his personal favorites, in addition to some great cover songs. The Meat Loaf hit “Two Out Three Ain't Bad”, Rod Stewart’s “Maggie May”, Queen’s “Fat Bottomed Girls”, the Elvis Presley classic “Burning Love” and even ZZ top’s “Legs”.

We at Funtastic are truly grateful to the military that we are able to use their DND facility to host our event. So it is only fitting we chose Julian Austin to perform at Funtastic as he is one of Canada's biggest troop supporters- Sunday will be a salute to our Canadian Forces troops.
