November 11th, REMEMBRANCE DAY......
Remembrance Day for me is a very important day. My grandfather (center) and his four brothers, as well as my uncles from the Kelly family went to fight in WWII and, thank God, all of them came back. Take the time to thank them again for everything they did for us.
We should never forget their sacrifice. 🌺💂
Rocked out Thursdays at the Hurley's in Kanata on October 10th, 17th, 24th and the 31st (yes, Halloween night). I had either Mitch or Vinny along for the ride and we even managed to squeeze Taylor in one night. The whole gang turned out on the 11th. Big shout out to the Hurley's staff - you guys are amazing.
We even had a special guest grace us with his presence. My brother's former colleague, and old family friend, made the trip down from Toronto to catch the show. A couple of shots, a few pints and a frigid night in a hammock and Leigh was ripe and ready for a hearty Ottawa breakfast. It was good to see you man! Hope it's not another nine years before we see you again.
On October 18th, I was honored to perform at Quebec's annual Country Music Gala in Laval at the beautiful Place Bell. I got to meet artists, producers and media executives. What an evening!
I can only pray that I get the chance to perform with such talented people again.
On October 26th, the band and I were at the Little Texas in Kingston for their annual Halloween party. Not surprising that the 8 foot tall scarecrow couple won the night. I thought for sure that Mitch and I were in the running when we switched lids. I made that beanie sparkle!
Join us at Hurley's! Every Thursday night in November, myself and a guest will be there ... should you need a food or drink recommendation.
On November 24th, I'll be back at the annual X-mas Event in Mascouche, QC.
I've been fortunate over the last three years to be invited to perform at this tiny historical church in Mascouche for their Country and Christmas Show. I've met a lot of great people over the years and it feels good to give back and provide a little cheer at this time of year.
On November 30th, the band and I will perform at Boat World's corporate Christmas Party in Orleans.
Sing Out for CHEO event will be held Saturday, February 22nd, 2020 at the Lone Star loft on St Laurent.
The website is now up to date and you can buy your tickets online.
More details on the event to follow. Stay tuned....
