The Merritt Mountain Music Festival July 19 -22 kicks off this years event by bringing you our Wednesday Musical Mixer, July 18th. There's so much entertainment in the mix …we thought we'd stir up some fun by bringing you lots of music from the past, the present and the future!

You'll see more stars… than just the ones in the sky when we bring to you THE ROY ORBISON EXPERIENCE featuring LARRY BRANSON. Larry Branson is unprecedented in his delivery of one of the most influential singers in the world. He will unleash your memories as he guides you through all his classics. His unique show has captivated audiences across the continent and we are thrilled to have Larry Branson perform at the festival. TWAINS TWIN has come alive at Mountainfest 2001. You won't believe it when you see Jamie Lee reinvent herself as Shania Twain. She's got the moves, the voice, the band and of course the looks. You don't want to miss this one!

Here come The Judds!..No wait…It's THE COUNTERFEIT JUDDS! Darla (Wynonna) n' Candy (Naomi) actually sound like and look like the real "Judds!" The two girls began singing together in the mid-90's and soon realized that with Darlas's powerful voice and Candy's talent for natural harmony they had a great sound. THE COUNTERFEIT JUDDS have performed at several events throughout Victoria and the Lower Mainland.

KINDA KENNY is a musical tribute to Kenny Rogers. This is not a simulation; there is no lip-synching, Marty Edwards really is Kinda Kenny. Marty has been entertaining fans since early 1970's. His critically acclaimed tribute to Kenny Rogers is incredible. If you like Kenny Rogers, you are going to love Kinda Kenny.

ABBA -MANIA are quickly becoming the #1 tribute in America and we are thrilled to have them at Mountainfest 2001. ABBA-MANIA is a 10-piece show group backed by musicians and vocalists. Their authentic costumes, costume changes and concert lighting re-create the magic and excitement of ABBA. They look, sound and perform like the real thing! The Wednesday Musical Mixing Bowl adds dancers and more music to the mix. Don't miss TRAMA, THE BRENT LEE BAND, TIME BENDERS, NEW BIG SHOES, DIANE PANZEL, BRANDAN ROSE and the YOUNG-UNS!
