Canadian Country Music Awards best new group nominee Hey Romeo hit Ponoka on Aug 21.

The concert was held by Ponoka Ford to celebrate the last days of summer.

The band had originally planned to play in Centennial Park but due to harsh weather conditions the concert was moved indoors to the curling rink at the Ponoka Culture and Recreation Complex.

Regardless of the weather Hey Romeo lit up the room and entertained all that attended. Their music and energy had people dancing and clapping.

Stacie Roper, vocals, Rob Shapiro, keyboards and Darren Gusnowsky, guitarist make up Hey Romeo and they have been busy touring and opening up for music groups such as Emerson Drive, Blue Rodeo and Sugarland.

Roper enjoyed performing in front of the Ponoka crowd and says that she always enjoys coming to the town.

“I didn’t know if there would be a really big turnout because of the weather but it’s really nice of the people that did come out. It doesn’t matter how many people we perform for, we just love performing,” said Roper. “It’s nice to see familiar faces too and kids here as well. I love playing for kids, they bring a whole different dynamic.”

Hey Romeo is touring through 2008 to promote their first album which includes their single Sorry That You’re Leavin’ and their version of Fleetwood Mac’s Second Hand News.
