It has been too long since Brenda has held an open mic at The Kettle. Joe Mancuso (where have I heard that name before .. ?) is gonna fix that up.
With a little help from Phil Lewin, we look forward to Host Joe bringing back the tradition. It may take some time for the event to return to former glory, so all support is greatly appreciated…tune up ladies and gentlemen!
You can drift, relax, unwind, chat, do whatever you want. The music is soft, relaxing, background, and will coexist just as easily with your best friend as with your favorite Group of Seven artist.
Take it Aul in.
It’s official! Glen Williams loves Joe’s Blues.
Joe Mancuso has been bringing The Blues to The Copper Kettle and now it’s official … he becomes their regular Sunday afternoon performer, from 2-4 pm.
Look for a high energy performance, with lots of slide. Also, some familiar rock and blues classics that make you think … “Man, it’s nice to have some local Blues”.
Right here in Georgetown’s largest suburb, Glen Williams. Enjoy the short commute 😉
Bill Sykes and Mike Downes play this Friday at 8 pm.
Bill and Mike are fixtures at The St. George as vocalists and guitarists in The Almost Cool Band, hosts of the St. George Thursday Night Open Jam.
They packed The Bistro the last time they played and pulled a Springsteen, playing 4 hours consecutively to establish a Bistro record that stands today. If you have a song request, don’t hesitate … but remember to respect the blisters.
Ben Agro sounds more like Dean Martin than Dean Martin. And his Frank is none too shabby. The Bistro is on a roll baby, having had Monty Greig (an excellent Sinatra style artist) also perform recently.
Enjoy crooners? Head over Saturday night for a good listen and a good smoke. If you grew up with sounds of Dino wafting through the house, savour the nuance in Ben’s delivery … subtle and bang on. Now exhale.
The Helson Gallery has the funny guy, Ian Jarvie, who happens to be a fine music man, and they have the straight man, Bob Gee, who happens to be an outstanding musician. Put ’em together and you have one good afternoon of music.
Saturday, November 15 sees The St. George with The Beat Heathens, a band that has been playing together for nearly 15 years, the brainchild of former MuchMusic VJ Dan Gallagher and former Coney Hatch bass player Andy Curran. Among the original members of the band was guitarist Mike Montgomery.
Although Dan has passed away, Mike continues the band to this day. The result is a talented group that plays a wide variety of music that continues to win audiences over every night.
Veteran musicians capable of playing a huge variety of music from the sixties to the nineties and beyond.
“Nonie is a musical and storytelling force to be reckoned with. From heady blues, Irish balladry, to Cajun and French Canadian hues, Nonie seamlessly traverses genre with an execution only matched by her uncanny ability to explore equally diverse lyrical themes. Whether upbeat, sorrowful, poignant or whimsical, Nonie’s songs reach into the landscape of the heart – family, community, memory, discovery, love and loss – woven together by her stunningly beautiful voice.”
