Brandon, MB. – A tribute to a country legend, classic rock and roll and timeless music from the fifties and sixties will
headline the Summer Saloon Entertainment Stage at the 2023 Manitoba Summer Fair.

The Provincial Exhibition of Manitoba is excited to announce the lineup scheduled to hit the Summer Saloon Stage in
the Manitoba Room when the Fair arrives in Brandon next month.

Highlighting this year’s Summer Saloon lineup is Saskatchewan recording artist The Bromantics on Saturday, June

Joining them will be The Geezer Band on Thursday, June 8th and a Tribute to the queen of country music, Patsy Cline, on
Friday, June 9th.

Formed in the summer of 2013, the Bromantics are a six piece band that performs hits from the 50’s and 60’s. As well,
they perform their own original music. With high energy sax, vintage guitar tones, accompanied by classic style
harmonies, they are reviving the golden era of rock and roll with a unique sound of classic rock, Doo-wop, Motown and
modern pop.

“They provide a high energy show,” says Summer Fair Chair Tim Rowan. “Combined with a nostalgic feel, these guys
are sure to have everyone up and twisting the night away at the Fair.”

“We’re so excited to have them come to this year’s Fair and I know that it will be a great show,” Rowan added. “The
Bromantics popularity continues to grow across Western Canada and we feel fortunate to have landed them.”

While the Geezer Band is a local rock and roll cover band, the Cline Show comes on the 60th anniversary of her untimely
death in 1963. In the decades since, she has become a musical icon and inspiration to singers across the world. The show
will bring the audience on a beautiful and informative walk through the rise and success of one of America’s iconic music
