Line Up



Skully Baker Band - We are the Skully Baker Band, a rockin’ six-piece dance band with a high-powered 70’s vibe. Makes sense, we played our first gig in 1972!! With a few breaks over the years, takin’ care of the business of life, we’ve been rockin’ audiences in Manitoba ever since. Just a band of E. K./Elmwood brothers pumping out the songs of our teenage rockstar heroes: Cocker, Stones, Guess Who, Pickett, ZZ Top, Supertramp . . . you get the picture.













We’re all over today’s music, too, from The Hip to Darius Rucker. So hang on to your bell-bottomed jeans and follow Skully Baker back to the glory days of rough and ready rock and roll. . . .Pass the church-key, man!



Hearts on Fire -  Hearts on Fire is a 6 piece country band specializing in mostly 1990’s country music and were one of the most popular country acts in the province during that time.  They opened for country acts Lisa Brokop, Joan Kennedy and the Kentucky Headhunters and appeared at Dauphin Countryfest on the main stage and Hilltop Stage.  HOF had recorded several songs of which two were played in rotation on country music stations in Manitoba.  Hearts on Fire also received multiple awards from Manitoba Association of Country Arts including Best New Band, Entertainer of the Year, Bass Player and Drummer of Year and Female Vocalist of the Year (3 yrs in a row). 
















Recently reunited with all original band members, Hearts on Fire held a very successful Reunion show in 2023 at the Royal George Hotel which was a sell out.  They have been playing many shows since then including South Beach Casino and the Red River Exhibition.  Hearts on Fire look forward to transporting you back to the ‘90’s with the music of such artists as Jodee Messina, Patti Loveless, Marty Stuart, Clint Black and Mary Chapin Carpenter to name a few.  Grab your cowboy hat and boots and get ready to two-step to the country hits from the 90’s or sit back, relax and prepare to be entertained by a great band with soaring harmonies.

Sunset Legends - Graham Cameron has been our Festival Emcee since year two of Summer Winds and often performed as a guest singer with various bands who have taken the stage. This year he’s decided “to turn the mic over” and welcome a new host to the stage. It goes without saying then that it would be in typical Graham style to close out a great run with a bang! Sunset Legends is an amalgam of some of the most accomplished musicians Graham has met through the festival and countless jam sessions.

They all have great musical pedigrees and most have graced the Summer Winds stage in other groups. They will bring the energy and experience of their world toured selves right to our venue with a strong mix of rock and pop we all love, and lots of opportunities for all of you out there to sing along. Our Graham may be heading “into the Sunset” but he and these Legends want to bring you along for one last rip-snorter!


Harlequin - Harlequin has been in existence since the mid seventies and began their recording careers in New York at The Record Plant with Jack Douglas, legendary producer of John Lennon, Aerosmith, Cheap Trick, Blue Öyster Cult, The New York Dolls and Patti Smith to name a few.


They have toured across North and South America working with such bands as Triumph, Streetheart, Nazareth, Heart, April Wine, Pat Benatar and Saga. Unlike many bands of their era, Harlequin is still a staple of rock radio in Canada, where the band’s old and new hits still receive remarkable amounts of airplay. Fueled by this continued success at radio, the band still tours, gaining new fans all the time, and attracting anyone who loves Canadian rock at it’s finest.

If you've never seen a Harlequin show you owe it to yourself to see why they are still around after more than four decades.

DJ JPQ - JPQ is a once in a generation selector. A pirate radio trained, club (and wedding) sharpened DJ who is an alchemy of a cheeky record store clerk, hip-hop professor, sweaty raver, and fun Uncle Partytime.


His residencies at Junction City Music Hall (Toronto) and The Beer Can (Winnipeg) have further stoked the legend of his passion and presence. His selections and unique style create an exchange of energy and joy that is both fundamental dj-ing and performative party rocking. You'll see him several times a week, singing and smiling, scanning the floor for more to levitate, radiating inimitable vibes, and working tirelessly to keep sharing them with the world.

​All that, and he can dance.
