FRI MAR 15

dpp_5582_500x383Concert by Amélie et les singes bleus + speakeasy theme night on 15 March 2013

Francophone band Amélie et Les Singes Bleus makes the kind of music that has made a bride and groom leave their own wedding reception to come next door and dance!  They have established themselves as a true crowd-pleaser in the Toronto Music scene. Their music, tinted with festive energy and unique arrangements, captivates and takes us back to a 1920’s speakeasy.

We encourage the audience to dress the part in the 1920s and join us and the band to step back in time to our vintage inspired speakeasy ambiance! The best costume wins a prize. Of course a password is required and will be revealed upon purchase of the tickets…

TRENT SEVERN
w/ Lindy Vopnfjord
$20 cover | 9pm doors

Meet Trent Severn. Not the waterway system in Southern Ontario, but Trent Severn – the Canadiana band whose songs are fueled by the folklore of Ontario; whose lyrics pay tribute to Canadian legends.

Trent Severn is a trio from Stratford, Ontario comprised of indie songster Emm Gryner, the multi-talented Dayna Manning and violin whiz/songbird Laura C. Bates. When listening to their self-titled 10-track debut album, the first infuence that comes to mind is Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. There is no lead singer in Trent Severn. There are no doubled tracks. There is a guitar or banjo (Manning), a bass and stomp box (Gryner), a fiddle, and a shaker here and there. You can hear the watermarks of greats like Spirit of The West, Simon and Garfunkel, Tom Petty, Joni Mitchell, Hazel Dickens and Alice Gerrard. The sound of this band is CANADIANA based in Folk, Roots and Old Country.
