Strictly Hip to bring international tribute to Canadian rock band on June 21
DUNKIRK, NY - Originally based in St. Catherines, Ontario, the band Strictly Hip has been performing in and around Western New York since 1999, with their international tribute to the Canadian band Tragically Hip scheduled to hit the stage next week as part of Dunkirk’s Summer On The Lake Concert Series.
Voted numerous times as the “Top Tribute Band” at the annual Buffalo Music Awards, the band is scheduled to perform on Thursday, June 21 from 6:30pm to 8:30 p.m. Their performance, sponsored by STEL, will recreate the essence of one of Canada’s most popular rock bands.
Strictly Hip consists of Vocalist Jeremy Hoyle; Guitarists Bruce Wojick, Frank Nicastro and Alan Sliwinski; and Drummer Johnny Panic. The band has grown its regional audience to a national level, including performing as part of the festivities at the 2011 Super Bowl.
While the set list for most of their concerts in Western New York focuses on the music of Tragically Hip, the members of Strictly Hip have managed to developed a show and reputation across the country that is both multi-genre and multi-generational.
Dunkirk’s Summer On The Lake Concert Series, which began earlier this month, provides live musical entertainment each Thursday night until the end of August. The concerts are made available each week thanks to the contributions of title sponsor of DFT Communications and presenting sponsors Coors Light, the Chautauqua County Chamber of Commerce, NRG Energy, Cott Corporation, Robert Basil Cars and Advanced Production Group.
