Vic Ukrainetz

Raised in a small town in Saskatchewan, Vic played music across Canada from Southern Ontario to Vancouver and hundreds of towns and cities between. In 1977 Vic moved to Kelowna and within months, along with Morley Mitchke, Jim Lowey and Art Boehm started The Travellers dance band, a five piece ensemble now known as The Dance Band,

Music has taken Vic in many directions and different venues. Although piano was his first instrument, playing many string instuments and guitar has been his passion. Lately many people know him as a fiddler and the fiddle has taken him to many concerts including the Canadian Grand Masters championship in Ottawa. He is still involved and plays regularly with The BC Old Time Fiddlers, Kelowna Branch.

He has had the honour of being on stage and playing with some of the well known names in music like The Schryer Brothers, Calvin Volrath, Freddie Pelletier, Brian Sklar, The Canadian Polka Kings, Tommy Hunter, Jack Jensen of The Rhythm Pals and bluegrass award winners A Day Late & Dollar Short. He was also nominated as Musician of the Year in 2007.
