Bed of Roses Rocks Rotaryfest

music, entertainment

Bon Jovi tribute band Bed of Roses headlined Saturday night’s entertainment at Rotaryfest.

A huge, Bon Jovi-lovin’ crowd was on hand and heard favorites Runaway, It’s My Life, Bad Medicine, and naturally, Bed of Roses.

The Winnipeg-based quintet capped the evening with encore mega-hits You Give Love a Bad Name and Living On A Prayer.


Ten-year-old Allie Roach is absolutely thrilled after Bed of Roses drummer Scott Brown gave her his drumsticks moments after the band’s show concluded Saturday night at Rotaryfest.

With Allie is her friend, Aria Socchia, 9.

The two spent a good portion of the show dancing right up near the stage.
