Need your help here. I have a rough idea of what a gigawatt is, but I can’t find anything on the band .. anywhere. They’re playing The George, so they’re gonna be good.
Slide over to The St. George Pub and become the first Georgetown Musictown correspondent. Inquiring minds need to know!
Dee Pepper has a strong, versatile voice … not unlike her kin, Larry Melton. Nice to see her featured at one of Georgetown’s best attended music venues, The McGibbon Hotel.
Marena Manierka will be tinkling the ivories Friday, July 25 at 8 pm. Soft and subtle music, perfect for diners. This could be one of the last chances to see Marena perform locally for a long time.

With Les Smith from Newfoundland and Glenn McFarlane from New Brunswick, it’s obvious where this pair gets their love of Celtic and East Coast folk music. Les, now living in Mississauga, plays a multitude of instruments, including bass, tin whistle, Irish flute, concertina, accordion, bodhran, mandolin, banjolin, percussion, and is the primary vocalist, while Glenn, who lives in Brampton, plays guitar, mandolin, bouzouki, harmonica, accordion, percussion, and also sings. They deliver a high-energy versatile show filled with songs from both sides of the Atlantic, lively jigs and reels, tender ballads (often a cappella!), and recitations. Their material varies considerably from steadfastly traditional to very eclectic. They have been playing together since 1992!
D-Moos, Halton Hills’ own Internet Radio station www.D-Moos.com, has secured 30,000 high quality recordings previously spun by CHUM AM. They have filtered them down to 20,000 suitable for airplay, ranked them, and created a computer program to cycle through them based on that ranking.
The result is a truly eclectic mix of Classic Hits from the 50’s to today. With the station’s high “bitrate” and recently upgraded technology, they sound excellent. The songs are accessible worldwide, broadcast right from “The Grand Old Lady” (The McGibbon Hotel) and presented by a roster of professional Disc Jockeys purely for the love of music.
