The Stampeders perform at the Anzac Recreation Centre presented by Nexen Energy
Iconic Canadian band The Stampeders presented by 100.5 CRUZ FM performed for an excited and energized audience of community members in Anzac on Saturday evening at the Anzac Recreation Centre presented by Nexen Energy, a CNOOC Limited company, marking the second concert event in the history of the facility.
The Stampeders were one of Canada's top rock groups in the early 70's, having won Juno Awards in the categories 'Best Group,' 'Best Single,' 'Best Producer' and 'Best Composer' for their platinum single, Sweet City Woman. Between 1971 and 1976, the group went on to become a household name, with four songs reaching Top-30 in the U.S and ten Top-5 singles in Canada. They recorded nine albums, many achieving gold and platinum status. Sweet City Woman has since become a classic and a standard in the world of pop music.
“As we anticipated, The Stampeders put on a great show in Anzac,” said Russell Agnew, Interim Chief Operating Officer of the Regional Recreation Corporation of Wood Buffalo (RRC). “As we approach the one-year anniversary of opening the doors of the Anzac Recreation Centre presented by Nexen Energy, the RRC and ONE Team would like to extend our thanks to the community members of Anzac and the surrounding area for their support of our programs, initiatives and events, including their enthusiastic support of this terrific concert experience from these legends of Canadian music.”
