It is officially an Octoberfest event and it should be LARGE + FUN.
They are selling 90 tickets in advance and that will be 'it' if it rains.
Otherwise it is open to the masses, and will be indoors and outdoors.
Over several years, I have been collecting Octoberfest songs for such and event.
I have used a website that I stumbled onto. Check it out - it's very bizarre and interesting - I've become FB friends with the guy! http://www.petroject.net/euroband/
Please pardon my speech to text which is necessary this time.
On Thursday night I will be playing with a band called MARY JO in the Retros. This is MARY JO MAUR, myself, Cliff Trott on bass. James Trott trumpet, Suzanne Owen saxophone GARY BARRATT drums! I think you would really enjoy it, honest! There is a lot of talent in that band. Earlier in the day, I am playing in a five piece band in front of Kings in City Hall. The band is called quintessential. That’s quintessential with a Q. Suffice to say, there are several clarinets flute and saxophone plus a cello. All the reed players double or triple on something else. These are amazing amazing musicians
It’s amazing you know, you have these clowns going around singing Johnny trash music and they're big heroes, meanwhile these reed players have spent years and years and years and years learning their craft play in obscurity. Anyhow all this is happening Thursday. Thursday noon in front of Kingston City Hall at 12:30 to 130. Then with MARY JO Thursday night in Gananoque at the bandshell 6:30 PM.
The band and sound was great! - you should have been there!
I will say this. When the town hall construction is done it's going to be beautiful!
There was a heavy rainstorm the night before and the band shell was flooded with nowhere for the water to escape - it was interesting setting up in the dry areas.
Not sure exactly what I've got myself into but I shall be performing at a Pavilion in the Delta Park 'demain' at 11:30. until ???? The event is....?????? (That would be Friday) Hmmmm - not far from Whiskey Island. Oh look - there's a little river there too!
For a number of years, going back to when Google bought Youtube, I have had 2 Youtube 'channels' , or so I thought. However, I think I have figured this all out and the fact is I have ONE Youtube channel at https://www.youtube.com/user/timmyhallman
If you then choose 'videos' or go to
you will see many videos I have posted over several years.
(not all about music)
I hope to post more and newer ones, soon.
I reckon it would be good if you 'subscribed' to my Youtube channel :)
Terry and I are playing at a Cancer Research Fund Raiser
Saturday night April 21 @7pm
to be held at the Gan Legion (big hall)
Also on the program is Gananoque's Colin Slack.
As I understand it, Colin is more 'listening music' and ours is 'dancing'.
Colin will start the evening and we should start around 8.
A light lunch will be available.
There will be other fund raising things at the event.Tickets are $20 per person. I know that approx. 100 have been sold. There is no central place to get them except 'at the door.' or: reserve/get one by phoning Nicole Tyo at 613-382-1038.
(and the same hall Sunday afternoon for the Legion dance!)
Saturday night, Terry and I with Gary Barratt (of THE BOBBY SHOW fame)
will perform at the Gan Curling Club - essentially for a dance. It's a curling club fundraiser with silent auction and other things. I just talked to Jane Curtis at the club and she assures me all are welcome. - no charge. For you purists out there, I would have to say there is a 'smallish' dance floor and it will likely be somewhat crowded. But....if you're looking for something to do...and help a good cause..... Noise @ 7 :)
