Anthem Singer – Elyse Saunders

Captivates audiences with her powerhouse vocals, dynamic presence and interactive charm. Best known for her hit song ‘RISE’, that made top 20 on Canadian radio. We’re happy to have Nashville recording artist with roots of Peterborough, Ontario, Elyse Saunders join us for the singing of our national anthem following racing.


TheOle Fashion

Straddling the border between Country and Americana, TheOle Fashion is the self-proclaimed “Best Ole Country Band this side of Erie.”  Their youthful take on vintage classics pay homage to the good ole days where songs were played with real-live instruments and stories were told from the heart with a whiskey in your hand.  A Sunday-night residency at Opera Bob’s was the inspiration to form this band where they’ve been going strong for many years.  The band features singer/songwriter Darcy Windover (vocals/guitar), Kevin Neal (pedal steel/vocals), Kurt Nielsen (bass) and David McDougall (drums/vocals).
