    New story out today that Blueberry Grass Band will be playing this summer at Epcot’s Canada Pavillion. Says they are experienced group out of Quebec. I cannot find any video footage for Blueberry Grass Band. Does anyone know what other name this band played under? I so want to see video of past performance so I can look forward to seeing them live and be a little familiar with their music. Thanks!

    Oh please let this be something that doesn't stink on ice lol. I would be completely thrilled if it were a band that plays Canadian Rock :)

    You are correct. I looked on Youtube and googled and can't find anything about this band. Yet the writeup makes it sound like they've been around for quite awhile. If that is true, surprised they don't have a website or something. Unless they normally go by some other name?

    This is excellent news. I was very sad to see Off Kilter go, don't understand why they were axed (pun intended).

    Off Kilter was one of the most fun bands to watch that I have seen in EPCOT. Still miss them. Hopefully, this one will be as good.

    I’m from Quebec and I never heard of them. Do you have the names of the performers?

    That’s what I was thinking. I remember at HS there was a great a capella group that would sing before the Beauty and the Beast stage shows. Outside of WDW, they used a different name.

    Good detective work! I could not find anything this morning! Hmmmmm...... I don’t know. Same name and from Quebec, but what about the rest of the band? From what I read today, it sounds like a larger group. Let’s see if they look similar as well. I’m going to see if they resemble the photo from the story.

    Ok.... insidethemagic.net has a more detailed article about the band and yes, there are definitely some similarities to the band posting you found kuhltiffany! They even mention the same town. Again, good detective work! This article also mentions them previously being on Jay Leno show as well as Britain’s got Talent show. Somewhere there must be a recording. I’m dying to listen to them!!! Not sure if they went by a different name.

    Is one of the men pictured Sebastien Savard? He was on Britains Got Talent. Still digging but that might help someone else!

    Ok.... definitely some discrepancies though as well. The female singer that the posting you found names has her own Facebook page, but she mentions many dates this summer where her and her band are playing, and the are definitely not at WDW. Maybe it’s some weird coincidence. I’m leaning toward the band having had a possible different name in the past. Ugh.... I may not get to hear them before they take the stage in Epcot later this month. I sooooo want to listen to them!

    I just looked up Sébastien Savard and I DO think he strongly resembles the man in WDWs photo holding a violin!
    I think we are getting warmer! I do not see any names of bands that he was a part of though. So, still stuck. Maybe someone else here had more info on him or has seen him play with a grass type band.

    His FB page had him with a band in 2015 called On The Porch but I don't think that's them!
