Ease on in this Saturday night (May 19) for the great sounds of Owen Sound with Grant Lyle and enjoy our tasty N’awlins food!
Following a solo set with Al Lerman, Vertigo took the stage….and kept it … with some really good rocking tunes. If you haven’t seen Vertigo, they really will turn you upside down, but they’ll get you get back up again. Thank you Vertigo for really great rock and roll. Live music, It’s really what it’s all about.
Saturday night was another treat for lovers of live music. First, Al Lerman gave us some insight into the history of the blues with his stories of meeting and playing with some of the greatest blues people, as well as his remarkable songwriting. As Johnny (one of the owners) put it, when you hear his songs, it’s like you feel like you should already know them. Thank you Al for sharing with us what the guitar and harmonica are all about.
What a great Friday night with Rick Rose and band reunion. Thank you to everyone who came out to enjoy an amazing evening of great music and a lot of love. Thank you Rick and band for really giving us every reason to love live music.
