Besides original songs (available for download on their website: www.bigroadband.com) Big Road performs covers by Joe Cocker, the Grateful Dead, the Beatles, Los Lobos, Al Green, the Rolling Stones, the Allman Brothers, Wilson Pickett, Miles Davis, Wet Willie, Van Morrison, and many others. They play favorite blues tunes, and are uniquely qualified to fill requests from our audience.


Visit many area artist galleries and  studios to watch our area’s rich wealth of artists make majic before your eyes.  Artists will explain and demonstrate their art throughout the weekend.  The tour is open today through SUNDAY from 10 am – 5 pm.

Get out and paint!

The Manitoba Art League’s blogspot features the Northwood Artists Pleine Aire schedule.  Feel free to paint with them during any of their weekly gatherings or grab a pad and head outside!

Murder Mystery Dinner

We are in the process of finalizing the details for our next, anxiously awaited, murder mystery dinner.  The murder takes place at a California vineyard.  Grapes of Wrath is an “ad-lib” mystery.  Upon your reservation for the evening we will send you character outline, tips and suggestions.  Watch our site for the date!
