EASY FIX BAND MEMBERS
Lorill is our band’s lead singer, as well as the band manager. She began to sing at an early age in an award-winning choir based out of Edmonton, AB. She did not return to the limelight until she was recruited to join a local 10-piece funk band in 2010. Lorill’s passion for singing was reawakened and galvanized her to perform a greater variety of songs and grow musically. This motivated her to co-create “Easy Fix” in 2011. Her soulful style and playful stage presence brings a lot of energy to our performances. Lorill is easy to talk to, knowledgeable, organized, quick to respond to inquiries and eager to discuss your event with you. She knows the importance of your event and will make sure your dance party is a big success! Give her a call at 778 478 6870 or send her an inquiry anytime at email@example.com.

Keys & Vocals
Dana has been singing and playing piano/keyboard professionally for over 20 years. He spent many years on cruise ships in various musical formations (bands and solo) touring all around the world, where he gained a wealth of experience and cultivated a huge repertoire. When it finally came time to hang up his passport, Dana decided to return to his hometown of Kelowna, BC and we are glad that he did! After a few years of playing freelance with a variety of local bands, he was inspired to create a corporate/wedding band composed of high quality, professional players with a focus on playing the “hits” to keep the dance floor full and the client happy. And that is how “Easy Fix” came to be! Dana is also part of the very successful piano duo “Double Click”.
