Larry Melton Band, Classic Rock, The McGibbon Hotel, Friday/Saturday, November 14/15 at 9:30 pm

Georgetown’s Larry Melton is the former lead vocalist for Blackwell, a rock band that toured across Ontario & Quebec for a couple of years. When the band took a break to record original material, they lost their lead guitarist, ultimately (and permanently unfortunately) to Rick Springfield (since 2005).

Larry continues rocking strong, backed by a group of excellent musicians, and his is a voice to be heard!
