The Smokin’ 45s are a party band that appeals to all kinds of music fans.

Audio/Rocketry from Edmonton will be playing on Saturday night.

They’ve been described as punk/folk music.

Front man for Audio/Rocketry, Joe Vickers has incorporated his love for American singer-song writer Woody Guthrie into their songs.
