Former Salmon Arm residents Voni and Mike Grindler wrapped up a successful run of their Jupiter Productions’ Rock & Romance at the Roadhouse dinner theatre show at the Quaaout Lodge, but they will be back.

There were a number of audience members who came out to catch up with Voni from her days with Shuswap Theatre, and former Salmon Arm Secondary students who knew Mike from his days as their industrial arts teacher.

“It is always a pleasure to bring some of Vancouver’s most talented musical artists to the Shuswap to perform in our original shows at the Quaaout Lodge each year,” says Voni.

The show featured songs from the roadhouse era when hard- working musicians would ‘hit the road’ and tour the roadside bars and taverns, playing to some rough characters on the way to successful musical careers.

With the songs made famous by names such as Patsy Kline, Hank Williams, the Doobie Brothers, the Doors, Ray Charles, Kenny Rogers, the Eagles, and more, the show has something for music lovers to keep their toes tapping and storytelling to pull it all together.

There were five performances of Rock & Romance at the Roadhouse over two weekends. With positive feedback and good ticket sales, Voni is pleased to have signed on to bring the show back for three encore performances at the Quaaout Lodge on March 27, 28 and 29, 2015.

For ticket information for the March performances of the Roadhouse, contact the Quaaout Lodge at 1-800-663-4303 or visit online at
