Savage Playground

2015 06 30 savage playground

Savage Playground stopped by the Mix 107 studios today to introduce themselves to Fort Saskatchewan.  The group will be a part of the Canada Day Entertainment lineup in the bandshell at Legacy Park.  Lineup information can be found here.

The band members are from Fort Saskatchewan, Sherwood Park and Edmonton.  They bring all types of influences to their sound and spoke of how various bands stick with them to form their sound today.

Originally a cover band, they have decided to move forward and create their own songs.

The band was formed by two brothers - Josh and Ryley Hughes and they have since built their platform.  Family relationships can always make for an interesting dynamic.

The rest of the band comments on their point of view of that family dynamic and how they incorporate feedback in order to grow.  We hear from Derek, Connor and Daniel.

Savage Playground has adapted over the years and recently welcomed a new band member, Daniel.  Daniel speaks on his experience on joining the already (mostly) formed group.

It is an exciting time for the band, as they recently picked up a new award - and quickly learned to be prepared - no matter what you think the outcome will be.

A new video is in the works for the new single.  The group is no stranger to creating videos and were surprised when making one of their earlier cuts.

This group of guys were very down to earth and their talent and passion shines through in their music.  Mix 107 wishes them the very best and hopes to have them back soon!  Watch them on Canada Day at 1:30.

2015 06 30 christie cindy vip pass

Christi from both the City of Fort Saskatchewan and Canada Day Committee and Cindy from ME Global visited the Mix 107 studio today with great tips for your Canada Day celebrations.  We ran through the list of the days events - including a pancake breakfast, the parade, fireworks, and cake and ice cream as part of the celebrations for Canada's 148th birthday tomorrow.

Traffic is always a concern and ME Global is a proud sponsor of the free transit that will be available to residents from 9:30 am to 12:30 am.  Cindy spoke of the sponsorship that ME Global has and how proud they are to be active community members of Fort Saskatchewan.  Various drop off and pick up points will be throughout the city.  And you won't have the stress of trying to find a place to park!

Volunteers are very important to the City of Fort Saskatchewan and Christi mentioned that while a large amount of folks have stepped up to help out, they still need about 3-4 people to help watch over barricades just right before the fireworks, from about 9:00-11:00 pm.  She thanked all the volunteers and sponsors as this day would not be possible without their help.

The entertainment will be a jam packed line up starting at 1:00 pm and the singing of our national anthem.

Official Opening of Ross Creek Professional Center

The official opening of the Ross Creek Professional Center took place on Saturday, June 27th.  The purpose of the building is to provide a one-stop-shop for all your medical needs.  It houses optometry, dental services, family doctors and specialists, a pharmacy and medical imaging center - it covers any health need.  It was also an opportunity to come and meet the medical professionals in a laid back atmosphere.

The community was treated to tours of the building and lots of activities in the parking lot - face painting, balloon artists, a BBQ, ice cream, Dunk a Doc dunk tank and a bouncy castle were keeping families busy.

We had a great time at the event and would like to thank the professionals for inviting Mix 107!

Adoptable Animal of the Week



Chloe continues to search for her furever family. Maybe you are it!!!

Chloe loves giving hugs and kisses. You can always expect her to jump into bed and cuddle in the morning with you as well! She does great with cats and has finally learnt to play with her foster brother Rufus. She's doing very well with her house manners. I've been able to leave her out of the crate while at work and she hasn't had any issues. She loves her Kong which she gets before I leave for work. We are able to work in the garden with her and she just hangs around. Chloe also knows how to play soccer with her older foster brothers. She loves the dog park and running around meeting new friends.
If you have cheese, Chloe will sit and wait patiently for it. She'll shake a paw for it too.

Please let us know at the radio station if you do adopt this beautiful girl and we will do a story on it for the Mix 107 readers, maybe even put it on air!
