“Renegade Station” coming to the 40th Annual Curling Club Cash/Car Dance

Renegade Station 2019

Country/Rock band, Renegade Station, will play their first ever show in Three Hills as they entertain during the 40th Annual Three Hills Curling Club Cash/Car Dance on the weekend.

All band members are from Stettler, and the name of their band reflects their hometown with a nod to the historical passenger train which is still in operation. Together for 15 years now, the band’s name changed five years ago when the band signed a new manager and were looking to spice up their game. Because their manager was from Airdrie the band decided to meet her halfway, which just so happened to be in Three Hills.

The band met while performing at the Stettler Country Music Jamboree, and when they realized how well they harmonized together they thought “we should take this on the road!” and from there began performing at weddings, rodeos, and any other offers they could get in order to establish their name and fan base.

Now Renegade Station has the opportunity to travel across the country during the summer months, this year to Halifax and then over to BC, including some big opportunities like playing all nine days of the Calgary Stampede in front of thousands of people each of those days. They have also won an Alberta Country Music “fan choice” award in 2015, they have been named Alberta Country Music “group of the year” twice (2015, 2016), and this year won “single of the year”. Their single has also made the top 50 Canadian Country Music billboard.

It is their harmonies that make their sound unique, with all four band members singing, and with a male and female vocal lead, which is rare in most bands. They have a similar sound to bands like Little Big Town.

The band is very excited to play at the Curling Club Fundraiser because they “love curling gigs!” They’ve played the women’s Scotties Alberta final in Stettler this past January, and the men’s Alberta Boston Cup final in Westlock in 2017. Their busier schedule has kept them from playing weddings or rodeos in recent years, but they’ve continued playing curling events because they have “the best people on the planet.” They look forward to “a fun night, to entertaining people, and meeting new people…can’t wait!”
