With the recent announcement of the return of the Lloyd Ex Fair, Boundary Ford is once again set to bring the Border City some great live entertainment that everyone can enjoy. 

The list was officially made public on Tuesday morning, and four days of entertainment will include Classified on July 13, Jade Eagelson on July 14, Toque on July 15 and 54-40 on July 16.

“We’re really excited because we are hitting all different genres of music, and we’re excited about this because we know not everybody is into the same style of music, so we’re offering four nights of different entertainment to the community,” said Boundary Ford’s marketing manager, Carly Pollard.

 “I’m most excited for Classified because I think it’s something different for the Fair, and I think he’s a great artist to kick off the Boundary Ford Concert Series.”

Classified may be her favourite pick of the four bands, but she did note each of the four acts offers something for everyone.

“I think each of these artists offers something new and different for our community, and it will be great for people to come out, enjoy and share some laughs after a long-waited period (due to COVID),” she said. 

Country music fans definitely won’t want to miss their chance to see up-and-comer Jade Eagelson perform on Thursday night.

“One song of Jade’s that most people will recognize once they hear it is Got Your Name On It,” said Pollard. “He’s a fantastic Canadian country artist.”

For those unfamiliar with Toque, they are an all-Canadian cover band ready to blast out classics such as Lunatic Fringe by Red Rider, Go For Soda by Kim Mitchell, Roller by April Wine, and many more. 

“Three of the members of this band took time from their schedules playing with Slash and Kelly Clarkson, to name a few,” said Pollard. “They played a charity event in Winnipeg, the night was a success, so they formed Toque, and they celebrate the best in Canadian music by remaking the songs that inspired and influenced them.”

Last but not least is Canadian alternative rock group 54-40, who you know will have the crowd belting out songs such as I Go Blind, Ocean Pearl, and One Day in Your Life, to name a few.

Pollard says is a great Canadian alternative rock group and I think they’re a great group to end the Lloyd Ex Fair 2022.
