Who knew there were so many Canadian RE/MAX agents who can rock the house?

Bruce Dougall had an inkling, so the professional trumpet player and Associate Broker with RE/MAX Kelowna in Kelowna, British Columbia, formed a 10-piece rhythm-and-blues band called the RE/MAX Rockin’ All Stars.

“I felt like Robin Hood picking his merry men,” Dougall says. “Each member is a stellar musician and a stellar real estate agent.”

Reminiscent of bands like Chicago, Tower of Power, and Earth, Wind & Fire, the RE/MAX Rockin’ All Stars packed Vancouver’s 308-seat Metro Theatre during their first gig in November 2012, which raised more than $3,000 for BC Children’s Hospital, a Children’s Miracle Network hospital.

The hospital continues to receive 100% of the band’s proceeds.

“We do a real high-energy show,” says guitarist Ari Lahdekorpi, a former session musician who has worked with blues legends like Pinetop Perkins and Bo Diddley. “With a four-piece horn section and a six-piece rhythm section, we really have a full sound.”
