We’re talkin’ earplugs, head banging Punk, mosh pit … Good Times! Hats off to The GibRock for giving our emerging musicians and their passionate supporters a slice of Georgetown’s musical nightlife.
Riotfest, the humongous Punk, Rock and Alternative festival, runs in Toronto on the same date: Saturday, September 6 … but it also runs Sunday! Maybe support the homeboys Saturday night, hit the big show Sunday … ?

The Georgetown Choral Society is currently recruiting new members for the Fall 2014 session. No special talents are required. Just a love of singing and a willingness to put in the rehearsal time. Acceptance is subject to an audition with the Artistic Director.
Under the direction of A. Dale Wood, the Choir has approximately 100 members, and performs at a level normally associated with professional groups. The choir performs a mixed genre of musical works and has performed at venues such as Roy Thomson Hall in Toronto. We have also performed in Holland, England and Ireland.
We perform two major concerts per year, usually repeated on two consecutive evenings. We also participate every year in Remembrance services in November as well as perform in benefit concerts.
Come and get a first-hand experience of being part of the choir by attending a rehearsal, held in the Christian Reformed Church at 11611 Trafalgar Road, Georgetown, every Monday evening at 7:30 pm. If you are interested contact Laurent Thibault (905-877-7795) or Alyson Arsenault (519-856-0016).
And aren’t we lucky … guess who is in town this weekend .. ?Come check out the musical chemistry only attainable by siblings. Will they slip out of Jazz mode and share some Beatle memories … ?
Wendi Hunter plays a smooth banjo and is a lovely guitar fingerpicker, with a singing vibrato gifted her from somewhere beyond. Husband Hugh sets a steady beat with banjos he hand crafts in his luthier shop. And son Mac is an accomplished bass player, solid music man and PA guru.
Makes for an interesting combination that lets you catch your breath and appreciate all that life has to offer.
Some know him as “Mr. Broughton the History teacher”, some as an actor, or a singer, church volunteer, Jimbo, folkie, father of Adam James (an excellent crooner), husband of Cheryl Broughton, emcee, fingerpicker, athlete, comedian .. even at that, I’m sure I am forgetting half of all the things that make Jim special.
Go to The Copper Kettle Saturday and you can fill in your own blanks – this is a Fun Guy!
