Sask. performers excited to hit the Heritage Classic stage

Saskatchewan born and bred artists will be hitting the stage at the NHL Heritage Classic at Mosaic Stadium.

The Sheepdogs, Jess Moskaluke and the Hunter Brothers will all be performing live at the game.

JJ Hunter says he and the boys are very excited to perform for a hockey crowd in their home province and in multiple capacities. “There is a concert I believe after the Alumni Game, we are doing the anthems for the actual game for the Heritage Classic and there is also some collaborations going on at the beginning when the players are being announced and what not.”

Hunter says the brothers are thrilled to be a part of this province, its culture and everything that is happening here. “And now to be a part of this Heritage Classic game, in this capacity, and be part of it right after our new single is being released. There is just a lot going on that is really exciting for us and we are thrilled for all the support we have received.”

He adds that the Heritage Classic performance is extra special to the group because of their hockey roots.

Jess Moskaluke will also be performing throughout the game for the crowd at Mosaic Stadium and the TV audience.

Moskaluke says this is such and honour and she is really excited for it, but there are some nerves as well. “There’s many eyes on you and hockey is Canada’s sport so it really truly is an honour and you want to absolutely do everything justice so we will be bringing our A game for sure.”

She says she is literally counting down the days until the big event.

The Winnipeg Jets face off against the Calgary Flames at the outdoor game on October 26th.
