Three years ago the group formed after Nicole Kanezacek and two of her other band members discovered their now lead female singer, Brooke Nickel, who was only 18 at the time. With the help of an agency called Fine Gold Entertainment, the ensemble was made with musicians from across Saskatchewan.

Band members include Nicole Kanezacek(Keyboard and backup singer), Niel Kanezacek(Drums), Michael Barret(Lead guitar and lead male vocals), Brooke Nickel(Lead female vocals) and Irvin Finef(Bass).

 The team of musicians mainly perform at corporate gigs such as World Curling Tours or in Banff on New Year’s Eve. They live to entertain you and all they ask from you is that when you’re hosting an event, that they come first to mind for entertainment.

Nicole Kanezacek said Rock Candy is looking forward to seeing familiar faces and listening to the other bands while at the Concert Jam. She hopes their performance will bring positivity and spread energy.

From 1-10p.m. the bands will perform at the Cugnet Centre on Saturday, August 25th. Tickets are available at Music Craft, Old Fashioned Foods, and Weyburn Review/Weyburn This Week.
