The BIG O was unmistakable with his trademark sunglasses, distinctive, powerful voice, complex compositions and dark emotional ballads.  From 1960 to ’64 Roy Orbison landed 22 songs on the Billboard Top 40, including “Only The Lonely”, “Crying”, and “Oh, Pretty Woman”.  His impassioned voice, bridging the gap between baritone and tenor, coupled with his signature arrangements ensured the charting of the hits “Dream Baby”, “Ooby Dooby”, “Blue Angel”, “Blue Bayou”, “You Got It” and “In Dreams”.  Mike Demers delivers a spot-on performance of Orbison’s signature sound.

Canadian, singer/songwriter, and recording artist Avery Raquel, started in the entertainment industry at a very young age. From television and radio, to animation, voice-over work and a number of professional stage productions across Canada, Avery’s passion for performing grew.

All the while, Avery kept honing her craft as a vocalist of rare talent, which has led to an impressive list of career accomplishments on her musical resume.

In April, 2018, Avery released her 3rd full length solo project, ‘My Heart Away’. Comprised of all original music, one can discern that Avery has matured into a strong songwriter, with catchy melodies, compelling lyrics and a real sense of musicality. Her debut album, ‘Life Lessons’, released in early 2016, featured both jazz standards and fresh jazz infused interpretations of pop songs from the ‘60s, ‘70s, and ‘80s, and was even nominated for “Jazz Album of the Year” in Hamilton. Her debut album had also received critical acclaim and airplay on major stations across the country.

“We’ve all read so much into the way The Beatles ended, but this album is the testament. It shows how giving and caring they were with each other, the four of them deeply involved with each others songs. Tat’s beautiful, that’s the power of music. Abbey road was released in October 1969 as a generation said goodbye to 10 years of heavy change; this album led us all across a new road and into another decade. And wasn’t that just like The Beatles? To conclude with messages of love and sunshine. We know how to play this album. We care about this album.”

Though most familiar as the star, creator, and one of the principle writers for CBC's hit sitcom Mr. D, it is in stand up comedy where Gerry Dee first hit his mark. Dee, who was a private school teacher for nine years before giving it up for comedy, became the first Canadian in 27 years to win the prestigious San Francisco International Comedy Competition, and was a finalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, the highest finish by a Canadian in the history of the show.

Africville Stories is Order of Canada recipient Joe Sealy’s new presentation that expands his 1997 JUNO Award-winning recording Africville Suite. Established in 1847, “Africville” was nestled on the shores of the Bedford Basin at the north end of Halifax and was Canada’s oldest black community, until it was razed in the late 1960s as an “urban improvement” measure. “Africville” overcame a multitude of challenges by pulling from the hearts and souls of its residents in order to survive for more than a century, until the final building was demolished in 1970. The stories surrounding George Dixon, Joe Louis, Portia White and Duke Ellington combine to create the legacy of this unique Canadian community. Africville Stories tells of this legacy in a narrative and musical journey, with guest artists Jackie Richardson, and Paul Novotny.

“40 years after its release, The Wall has taken on new meaning – it seems now there are more walls than bridges. But music builds bridges, and The Wall, released in December 1979, is actually a bridge. It became the number one selling album of the 70s, even though it was an 80s album … change was in the air, and it took this album’s reflection to enact it. All the sounds and voices, all the sonic luxury, it all comes alive on our stage. The musicians all realize how important this album is – we all do. It’s a monumental work of art – to me, The Wall is more important than anything you’ll find in a museum.”

A 3-time JUNO Award winner, Mitchell has achieved gold and multiplatinum sales status over a long and storied career, starting early on as leader of the musically influential and eclectic Max Webster, a band who in the late 70’s defined “alternative” and “independent”.

“We’ll push the envelope, then reel it back in, then push it again.”
Patrick Murphy, Gaelic Storm
After nearly two decades, chart-topping Celtic band Gaelic Storm is looking sharper than ever with their latest release, Matching Sweaters. Rooted in the songwriting of founders Patrick Murphy and Steve Twigger, the album moves from drinking songs to sea shanties to energetic instrumentals, to rootsy pop-rockers, gluing everything together with their signature spark and spirit. Back in the mid-1990s, Gaelic Storm kicked off their career at a pub in Santa Monica, California; discovered there, they appeared in the blockbuster film Titanic (performing in the “Irish Party in Third Class” scene). This laid the groundwork for a career that would eventually find them topping the Billboard World Chart six times, while gaining a reputation as a genre-bending Irish rok band, whose songs mix Celtic traditions with something uniquely creative.

“It’s been 40 years since ‘Damn the Torpedos’ was released. The sound of that album reminds me of the 70s; it was a time when punk, disco, and new wave were all exploding but ol’ Tom stayed the course and wrote a perfect rock album. We were struck with how beautiful the guitars sounded – really silky and graceful. We started out with two guitarists and then we added two more, which allows the music to soar. We’re going to pay this album the respect it deserves note for note, cut for cut – that’s all you need.”
Craig Martin, Founder of Classic Albums Live
