Hey Milkshakes! This week, we're proud to present a hotsy-totsy 4-piece folk outfit, Rosie and the Riveters, from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. These self-described “sassy dames” are a ‘40s inspired outfit that specialize in 4-part harmonies and secular gospel songs. Their name is an ode to the feminist war-time icon Rosie the Riveter. Rosie is emblematic of the true to the spirit of the band’s mantra of empowering women to be change makers.

Aside from writing and performing musical gems inspired by the likes of Mahalia Jackson and The Andrew Sisters, Rosie and the Riveters have set themselves apart from the pack with their ‘40s flair, mid-show dance moves, and their lighthearted stage presence.


Recently, the band passed through Alberta on a tour supporting their latest release, Good Clean Fun! The tour included several sold-out stops, including the show you’ll hear this week, recorded live at Horizon Stage in Spruce Groove.
Featuring Allyson Reigh, Alexis Normand, Melissa Nygren, and Farideh Olsen, get ready to discover Rosie and the Riveters!
