They had to cancel their March show, but they are back now in April !

Story House is four musicians who have been active in the Pacific Northwest Bluegrass and Folk scene for a good long time. Their show features many original songs and tunes, mixed with covers of great songs both old and new. Though all four members of the band sing, Jake and Maiken's arresting duet singing is the cornerstone of the band's vocal sound.

Maiken de Villiers's (bass) sweet singing and powerful songwriting have won her fans from BC to Hawaii. Maiken contributes many strong original songs to the repertoire.

Jake de Villiers (guitar) solos in a style all his own and his propulsive rhythm keeps the band ticking along. Jake does most of the arranging for the band.

Tim Eccles (banjo) keeps the band moving, no matter the tempo or time signature. He also contributes many fine originals to the band.

Pete Goodall (mandolin) has an uncanny ability to find the heart of a song and embrace it with his tasteful playing.

We are super excited to present this Kelowna-based bluegrass band for a special concert. Under The Rocks has emerged as one of Canada's premier bluegrass bands. This concert is part of their tour for their newly released album Honest Try. The band was selected by Wintergrass Music Festival as the 2024 Spark Band, which recognizes up-and-coming bluegrass musicians.

The band features Jordan Klassen (guitar), Chloe Davidson (fiddle), Chris Baxter (banjo and mandolin) and Nils Loewen (bass). Their big sound tips its cap to tradition while incorporating singer-songwriter original music.

With joyful hoots and hollers, clever and inventive song arrangements, instrumental breaks and powerful vocal harmonies, Under the Rocks Band lays out heartfelt, talented string music with uplifting and entertaining energy.
