AC/DC Tributes in Kelowna

On March 9, 2014 “Bonfire” an AC/DC tribute represented by Rockitboy entertainment from Los Angels came to the Mary Irwin Kelowna.  Bonfire is a tribute dedicated to the sound and era of Bon Scott (Ronald Belford 9 July 1946 – 19 February 1980).  Bonfire returned to play the Kelowna Community Theatre on October 26, 2019.  Note, there is an AC/DC tribute band also called Bonfire from Rochester New York.

BC AC/DC Tribute

BC/DC tribute AC/DC band has been around for more than 20 years!  “Unlike many tribute acts claiming to be “North America’s #1 Clone” or “Just Like the Real Thing”, BC/DC has turned the tables. The band takes a comedic approach, claiming the tunes as their own, and to having “heard of some BC/DC tribute band from Australia”. They rarely give factual interviews to big city press. Adding to the schtick, the band members all go by comic aliases – lead singer Brendan Raftery’s Brian “Bon” Johnscottson paying respects to both AC/DC’s famous frontmen. It’s working. It’s the gift that keeps on giving.” (read the full article here)
