A couple of real nice musicians we are fortunate to call our own here in Georgetown.

Elvis – The Moments

I saw this in December, the last time Elvis was “in the building”. If you can afford it, this is a real good ticket:

Come out and enjoy an evening of Elvis music with International Multi-Award Winning Elvis Tribute Artist Pete Paquette and Toronto’s finest, Rudy and the Angels band.

This MUST SEE show covers the musical career of one of the most celebrated entertainers, from early Rock n’ Roll to the Vegas Years. An authentic and energetic show showcasing the King’s early years of the 1950’s, to the army, movies, ’68 comeback and the memorable Vegas years.

May 30, 2014 at 8:00pm. All tickets $37. Group rates available on request. All shows take place at the John Elliott Theatre, 9 Church St., Georgetown, Box Office at 905-877-3700.

The Shepherd’s Crook, Failte

failteThis Friday at 8 pm: Failte (pronounced “fall-cha”) means welcome in Irish. The band plays traditional Celtic music with a Canadian attitude. Set lists include slow airs, ballads, jigs and reels from Ireland, Scotland and Canada.

 

Special Event, Bill Craig at The Shepherd’s Crook

bill craigI’ve heard very good things about Bill Craig, the Irish Musician and Entertainer, and how he has been well received by audiences at The Shepherd’s Crook. Join him this Friday, May 9 around 8-12pm.

From his Website:

“Bill Craig’s performance is relaxed eclectic, thought provoking, goofy and entertaining. His casual attitude is designed to include, not exclude his audience, be it eight or eight hundred people. Bill puts all his energy into his songs and makes a point of having a good time on stage. This usually translates to his audience having a similar experience.”

The Bistro at Silvercreek Open Mic, May 8

Aah, The Bistro at Silver Creek … a growing reputation for great food, fine wines and craft beer.

7:30 Neil Cotton, lead singer/songwriter of Hawk’s Nest is our Featured Act: http://upickedcotton.tripod.com/neil/

8:15-9 pm Cam Jenkins returns to mark his ‘official’ debut

10 pm Luckyfool, a duo with Reverend Rob and his musical partner. Looking forward to the return of Rob’s nice vocals, and my guess is his mate is no slouch.

See you there

Karaoke Thursdays at Shoeless Joe’s

10 pm start for Karaoke Night. It’s a hot ticket, well attended with some strong singing going down. If you get up the nerve, this can be a fun night. Did you know Babe Ruth was the first to coax Shoeless Joe into tackling karaoke?
