The Mil Jeanne Flowers & Axcenz Easter Eggstravaganza wrapped up with a bang Friday with a grand finale fit for a kid at gramma's house. On the line was a giant chocolate Easter bunny from Morden's Chocolates plus a gift card for an Easter arrangment, products from the new Tea Forte line they carry and some gourmet village goodies. We had our 12 contestants (collected from Facebook and on-air) down at Mil Jeanne's to pick colourful eggs from a basket ... And each colour corresponded to a prize.

Quinzy, Winnipeg MB

It's pop from another era. Or at least that's how they describe it. Quinzy is a very up and coming band from Winnipeg. They were invited to headline a major venue not once, but twice at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. Their latest album, "Self-Defense" was nominated for Best Pop Recording at the 2010 Western Canadian Music Awards.

But behind all the buzz, it's two sets of brothers, who happen to be two sets of cousins. Sandy Taronno (vocals, and guitar), David Pankratz (vocals, and drums), James Taronno (vocals, and keyboards), and Jason Pankratz (vocals, and bass) make up Quinzy.

They've released a total of three albums, all better crafted than the next, and Sandy Taronno sat down with Gabrielle recently to talk about all of their success.

Listen to Quinzy's music, check out their facebook, or visit their website.
