Copper Point Resort Congratulates The Sheepdogs on Rolling Stone Magazine Cover

August 11, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
Invermere, British Columbia, August 11, 2011 The millions of votes have been tallied for the Rolling Stone magazine cover contest and the winner is the proudly Canadian band The Sheepdogs, the first unsigned band to ever don the cover. Copper Point Resort, Invermere's luxury condominium resort, was proud to have this talented band perform at its big grand opening June 28, 2011 where more than five hundred people came out to celebrate the special occasion with an outdoor concert. The Saskatoon based quartet beat out 15 other musical acts, all of whom were American, in the magazine's "Do you want to be a rock and roll star?" contest.

In addition to the front page cover prize, the band signed a deal with Atlantic record label and gave a performance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. "Rooted in the timeless blues and rock-and-roll tradition, The Sheepdogs play organic, unadulterated music marked by inspired musicianship, vocal harmonies and songwriting," said Craig Kallman, chairman and CEO of Atlantic Records. "For these guys to have crossed every hurdle and emerge victorious is a real testament to the enduring power of honest, heartfelt music to touch a deep nerve in music fans."

The Sheepdogs formed in 2006 and have a 1970's retro appeal sound that reaches out to both younger and older generations. Last week they released a digital EP titled Five Easy Pieces.

Rohit Communities, the developer of Copper Point Resort, wishes continued success for this great group of guys and looks forward to hosting them again on their future getaways. Way to go The Sheepdogs!
