Abba Tribute

This energetic duo started as singers, who became friends, who discovered that they both loved the music of Abba. This tribute has grown into a professional singing duo being booked at many events in the Okanagan.

Jennifer Boal’s music has always provided an escape and inspiration for her. A musical audition earned her an invitation to attend a prestigious songwriting competition. Two of her songs: “Save Us” and “Shadow of Midnight” moved on to the second round of judging from the original fifteen thousand entrants (from Canada and the U.S) in an International Contest held in Nashville. Jennifer organizes and performs at the Open Mic nights held at the Lake Country Coffee House every Wednesday night.  She also performs at local venues throughout the Okanagan.  You can follow her performances at www.myspace.com/jenniferboal.

Louise Boisvert has won awards for her singing and dancing and has 17 years experience as a performer. Louise was a member of the North Shore Light Opera Society and adjudicates in vocal and dance competitions. She is board member for the Kelowna POPS Orchestra and can be heard performing as an entertainer with a repertoire of Broadway and popular hits and the Abba tribute with Jennifer.  Louise is a spokesperson for Canadian Arthritis Society and for “Cassie and Friends;” she is an advocate for children suffering with Juvenile Rheumatoid disease and contributes most of her energy to musical fundraising to help find a cure for her daughter, Elise and other children.  Jennifer and Louise contribute their Abba tribute to many of these fundraisers.  You can contact her at avoicetoshare@live.ca.

 

 

Corey Doak

The songs of award winning folk gospel artist Corey Doak (pronounced like “oak” tree) have a keen sense of artistry and quick wit that has spoken deeply to many hearts in a span of 10 years and five albums.  A unique blend of story, offbeat humor, psalmistry and poetry make him a standout amongst artists.

“I believe that our songs are meant to be a reflection of our human experience-sometimes we’re singing songs of praise and sometimes we’re singing the blues.  Sometimes we’re laughing like madmen over the most ridiculous thing, and the next moment we’re pondering the meaning of beauty in the world.  “It was when I quit worrying about fitting a mold and just did my thing that really meaningful things started to happen. That’s why I’ve ended up doing comedy one moment, and a serious song the next.  It’s cohesive because it’s human.”  His CD “No Sudden Movements” is the winner of the 2009 Covenant Award for the Folk/Roots Album of the Year and the 2009 BC Interior Music Award for Christian/Gospel Recording of the Year.  Corey has traveled extensively across Canada and the United States, Mexico, Lithuania and Latvia.  He has shared the stage with a wide array of notable performers including Martyn Joseph, Leeland, POD, Fresh I.E., Downhere, Greg Sczebel, Steve Bell, John Reuben, Starfield, Fred Penner and Shaun Groves.  He grew up on the beaches of Bandon, Oregon, but has been adopted by the great nation of Canada.  He lives in Kelowna, British Columbia with his wife Angela.
