Summer in the City packed the streets of Steinbach last weekend and organizers were excited by the turnout. For the first time, both headlining concerts, Absolute Queen and the Hunter Brothers, sold out, with about 1,500 people attending each show.

JORDAN ROSS / THE CARILLON J.J., Luke, and Brock Hunter—three fifths of the Hunter Brothers—rock out at the front of the stage during the band’s sold-out Saturday night headlining set at Summer in the City. Drummer Dusty and lead vocalist Ty round out the Juno Award-nominated band, which hails from Shaunavon, Sask. and has released four studio albums since forming in 2016. The crowd sang along to the band’s latest single, “Peace, Love & Country Music,” released a week before the festival.
