Newsletter for November 2016

WOW! What a month October 2016 has been with two SOLD OUT dances – one in Mississauga and the other in Acton.

We now look forward to our upcoming appearance at The Old Mill, Toronto.

oldmill

The Old Mill Tea Garden restaurant was founded by R. Home Smith in 1914, next to the ruins of an old grist mill on the Humber River in The Kingsway district of Toronto. It became a great place for dancing to big band music in the 1920s. In 1983 it was designated as a heritage property by the former city of Etobicoke and retains that designation with Toronto.

Newsletter – September and October 2016

It is hard to believe. The Summer of 2016 is almost over.

SummerOver

One thinks about that when you hear the Canadian National Exhibition is coming to a close and kids are heading back to school. It has been one amazing summer for many reasons and a great year for the band to date.

As mentioned in previous newsletters the band returned in July to the Harbour Street Fish Bar in Collingwood for another fabulous night of dancing.

July 21st took us to the Ajax Downs and Slots for an outdoor evening concert all centered in the Winners Circle at the track.It was exciting to be part of this event and we also got to see some Quarter Horse races.

We thank the capacity crowd who came out to see the band and stay to the end our our show.

On Saturday, August 13th we played a two hour show in the evening at the Emerald Music Festival held on Amherst Island, south of Napanee. A 20 minute ferry ride landed us on the island and what a beautiful island it is.

2016-Emerald-Music-Festival-

Arriving at Amherst Island late afternoon we were greeted by Dan Simpson who organized the three day festival now in its sixth year and what a warm welcome it was with our own trailer to relax and change before the show, lots of food and the delicious homemade blueberry pie. This really put us in good stead for our performance at 8 p.m.

The rain didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits as the dance floor they had built was packed for two hours. An encore brought us back on stage to conclude with “How Sweet It Is”.

A huge Thank You goes out to Dan and Joan Simpson and Susan Filson, Dale Gowan and MC Gord Miller from radio station CJAI. Also, last but not least, thank you to King Sound for providing the best sound and lighting production any band could wish for.

The month of September gives us a bit of a break to continue rehearsals and gear up for upcoming events.

Past history in Ontario says that the month of May was the traditional opening date for cottages and Ontario’s dance pavilions.

The following is an article that you are sure to enjoy:

~ The Pavilion ~

SaubleBeachPavilion

Dancing at the Pavilion is always associated with happiness. No matter what the style of music, its infectious rhythm calls people together, to start moving, to dance, to have fun. People meet people; friendships are made; some fall in love. The love-songs the bands play become a very personal thing to lovers. The chord changes, the lyrics, the melody all reach the inner soul and the song becomes “our song”. The words may change, but the feeling is always deep, true and enduring.

So another summer at the Pavilion brings exciting groups to provide happy music for you to enjoy, to dance and to make friends. *

LINDSAY FAIRGROUNDS……your Pavilion for a night. See you on the dance floor.
