SaskTel SK Jazz Festival: Don Ross Louder Than Usual with Katie Tupper

Thursday, June 30, 2022
7:00 PM / Broadway Theatre
Don Ross Louder Than Usual with Katie Tupper Don Ross Louder Than Usual

Canadian guitar legend DON ROSS has been touring internationally for the last 30 years, bringing his trademark groove-based style to audiences in Canada, the USA, Europe, China, Japan, Korea, Russia, India and Australia in the process. His new project, Don Ross Louder Than Usual, is a new collaborative unit that Don has started to achieve some of the arrangements of many of his tunes that, though they work well in the solo context, were actually conceived as working well in a band context.

The core of the band is a quartet consisting of Andrew Craig on keyboards, Jordan O’Connor on bass, Marito Marques on drums and Don on guitar and vocals. The band got its start in 2018 when Don was invited to perform in ensemble at the Ottawa Jazz Festival. Their sold out show was very well received, and made the band eager to showcase further.

Don Ross was born and raised in Montreal to an Indigenous Canadian mother and a Scottish immigrant father. His bilingual, multicultural upbringing was, perhaps, one of the most quintessentially Canadian experiences one could hope for! He eventually graduated with a Music degree from Toronto’s York University, and then embarked on an award- winning solo composing, recording and performing career that has taken him to dozens of countries over the course of 18 CD releases.

Katie Tupper

Beneath the painted hues and infinite prairie skies of Saskatoon -- a city in the heart of Canada -- lies a soulful, creative spirit that proves there’s much more to the so-called ‘fly-over states’ than grassland and grain silos. Katie Tupper, a 24-year old neo-soul musician, embodies that spirit and is determined to show there’s an entire world of boundary-pushing, genre-defying artists at work within the often overlooked region. “How Can I Get Your Love?” Tupper’s second single, rising in the CBC Music Top 20 chart, currently at #7, deals in a blanketing mixture of Neo-soul and exquisite folk, seeming to speak for a region neglected all too often, displaying just how richly her music roots through the native meadows and grasslands (or as she refers to them here, “fields of butter”). It’s a song that at once speaks of all the possible partners we miss out on from sheer cluelessness, and ultimately centers around a single, great passion.

SaskTel SK Jazz Festival: Lucinda Williams with Megan Nash

Thursday, June 30, 2022
7:00 PM / TD Mainstage, Bessborough Gardens
Lucinda Williams with Megan Nash Lucinda Williams:

“It’s all come full circle,” says Lucinda Williams about her powerful new album, Good Souls Better Angels. After more than forty years of music making, the pioneering, Louisiana-born artist has returned to the gritty blues foundation that first inspired her as a young singer-songwriter in the late 1970s.

Lucinda Williams has traveled a long road since her 1979 debut, Ramblin’ on My Mind, followed by Happy Woman Blues, her first album of originals released forty years ago in 1980. (She says that she’s still “the same girl” except that now “I have a bigger fan base and I can afford to stay at better hotels.”) Over the course of fourteen remarkable albums, three Grammy awards, and countless accolades, including Time’s Songwriter of the Year of 2001, Williams is one of our most revered artists, beloved for her singular vocals and extraordinary songs. Her recent double albums, Down Where the Spirit Meets the Bone (2014) and Ghosts of Highway 20 (2016), released on her own label, received some of the best reviews of her career.

Megan Nash:

"Megan Nash is writing some of the most beautiful songs in this country right now” - Tom Power on CBC's Q. Megan Nash (she/they) is a songwriter that lives on Treaty 4 Territory. They’ve won and been nominated for numerous awards, including a 2019 JUNO Award nomination for Contemporary Roots Album of the Year for Seeker, 2021 Saskatchewan Music Award for Alternative Artist of the Year, and 2021 Best of Moose Jaw Award for Best Musical Artist. The recognition back home is in no small part due to her long and winding history of hitting the road, where she’s done international showcases in the United States, the UK, Germany, and Estonia on top of countless gigs in Canada’s small towns and sprawling metropolises.

SaskTel SK Jazz Festival: Amanda Tosoff ft. Emilie-Claire Barlow

Friday, July 1, 2022
8:00 PM / The Bassment
Amanda Tosoff featuring Emilie-Claire Barlow

Amanda Tosoff is a Toronto-based jazz pianist, composer, and educator (Humber College and MusicArtsCollective.com). She has received various honours, including the Montréal Jazz Festival Grand Prix de Jazz, the Toronto Arts Foundation Emerging Jazz Artist Award – and most recently, a 2022 JUNO nomination for her album Earth Voices. With her latest release, Amanda continues to pursue the creative and stylistic leap she began on her previous album Words, once again blending jazz, pop and art-song, as well as drawing on poetry with a deep personal and emotional connection. This summer, Amanda is touring with 5 of the 16 guest artists on her album, including JUNO Award winning vocalist Emilie-Claire Barlow, saxophonist Allison Au, bassist Jon Maharaj and drummer Morgan Childs. The band will perform music from Earth Voices, plus selections from Emilie-Claire’s repertoire – including clever arrangements of Burt Bacharach, Bob Dylan, Gershwin and more!

"Thoughtful, sparkling, poetically-inspired chamber jazz!"
– DELARUE (NEW YORK MUSIC DAILY)

“…with the release of Earth Voices […] Tosoff has taken the concept that she so brilliantly mastered with Words and built upon it. More instruments, more beautiful poems, more vocalists that equal more invigorating compositions that inspire and lift the already powerful words off the page into the present moment.”
– LAVENDER SUTTON (LONDON JAZZ NEWS)

SaskTel SK Jazz Festival: Arkells with Haviah Mighty and Shawnee Kish

Saturday, July 2, 2022
6:00 PM / TD Mainstage, Bessborough Gardens
Arkells with Haviah Mighty and Shawnee Kish Arkells:

Hailed by The Globe and Mail as “the right kind of band for this decade,” Arkells are widely considered one of the most passionate, exuberant and in-demand live bands working today. As radio mainstays, sports-sync shoe-ins and curious students of culture, Arkells have remained ever present – building awareness and personal community experiences around their live shows and new music at every turn. The most emblematic example of this being The Rally, Arkells' hometown concert that was hailed as one of the biggest headline shows in the country, and is slated to return in June 2022. Arkells continue to unleash new music and tour dates as the band and their fans return to live in-person festivities. Their hotly anticipated new album BLINK ONCE is out now, with recently teased BLINK TWICE companion album due later this year.

Haviah Mighty:

Haviah Mighty didn’t need to change her birth name when she decided to dedicate her career to music. Mighty could not better describe Haviah’s craft of provocative challenges and uncompromising truths.

Based out of Toronto, Haviah has spent a lifetime developing her skills as a songwriter, vocalist, producer, and performer culminating in a style of profound introspection and incisive socio-political critique. Her dynamic combinations of rap, song, and instrumental, transition seamlessly from hip-hop to soul to afrobeats with a meticulous flow and cadence that transcends any traditional expectation of genre.

Shawnee Kish:

Named the winner of CBC’s 2020 Searchlight talent competition, Shawnee Kish has been celebrated as one of North America’s Top Gender Bending Artists (MTV), named by Billboard as an Artist You Need To Know and continuously uses her music to empower. An outspoken advocate for her Indigenous and LGBTQ2+ communities, she is a proud Two Spirit Mohawk who has shared the stage with some of the world’s biggest names — Lady Gaga, Madonna and Alicia Keys to name a few. 2021 will see Shawnee release a new EP that addresses her personal struggles over the past twelve months — “The‌ ‌main‌ ‌theme‌ ‌will be ‌lighting‌ ‌up‌ ‌what‌ ‌use‌ ‌to‌ ‌be‌ ‌and‌ ‌getting‌ ‌on‌ ‌with‌ ‌what‌ ‌is‌ ‌now.‌ ‌The‌ ‌songs‌ ‌represent‌ ‌becoming‌ ‌yourself,‌ ‌finding‌ ‌out‌ ‌where‌ ‌you‌ ‌were‌ ‌was‌ ‌not‌ ‌where‌ ‌you‌ ‌wanted‌ ‌to‌ ‌be‌ ‌and‌ ‌full‌y ‌embracing‌ ‌that‌ ‌in order to let go. ‌Light‌ ‌the‌ ‌Place‌ ‌up‌, ‌even‌ if it’s ‌unintentional” — and hopefully, return to touring. She will also continue her work with the We Matter Campaign and Kids Help Phone in hopes of empowering youth, providing strength and hope through music.

10:30 PM / Amigos Cantina
Boy Golden

Boy Golden has a purpose: enjoy each day and make good music. Founder and minister of The Church of Better Daze, he wants to help people seeking to improve on yesterday's themes. His songs, like hymns, are hopeful, fresh and upbeat. KD and Lunch Meat is fluorescent and fun, like its namesake, and easily ingested.

The harmonies are the collective idea of working together, the mellow melodies keep our hopes alive and the lyrics are golden rules to live by: Follow your heart / Make good art / Call your momma / Work real hard.

Redefining jam band and stoner cultures by turning dead heads into lively brains, Boy Golden wants to unite us all in a hazy dream under one roof. "We're all the same at the Church of Better Daze," he sings. Find unity in the congregation of these 11 tracks, which redefine the precedent for collaboration, common goals and cannabis. If you're open to learn, and can speak your truth, you can blaze and still get paid in Boy Golden's Church of Better Daze.

SaskTel SK Jazz Festival: Kiesza and The Halluci Nation

Sunday, July 3, 2022
7:00 PM / TD Mainstage, Bessborough Gardens
Kiesza and The Halluci Nation Kiesza:

Kiesza stormed onto the scene in 2014 with her impassioned hit “Hideaway,” which has since accrued over a billion streams; the accompanying one-shot video has been featured on several best-of-decade lists. Her debut studio album Sound Of A Woman saw her top charts globally and moved over a million units. Top-tier musicians soon rushed to work with her, and the rising Canadian talent soon counted herself as a feature on releases from the likes of Skrillex, Diplo, Duran Duran and Joey Bada$$, to name a few. The Canadian multi-hyphenate also has a foot in the fashion world, serving as the face of campaigns for top brands like Fendi and Maison Birks. After a life-changing car crash put her on a two-year hiatus, Kiesza returned as an independent artist, releasing her sophomore album 'CRAVE” through her own label Zebra Spirit Tribe in 2020. The new decade marks a promising new beginning for one of the last decade’s biggest breakouts—and this time, she’s doing it her way.

The Halluci Nation:

As they enter a new cycle, Bear Witness and Tim “2oolman” Hill of A Tribe Called Red are reintroducing themselves as The Halluci Nation, to reflect the evolution of their music and mission. The Halluci Nation, takes its name from a phrase coined by John Trudell, to describe the vast global community of people who remember at their core what it means to be human. As a visionary artist and activist, Trudell recognized the connection between his accomplishments and what ATCR did intuitively through music and art.

Trudell’s voice was the first heard on Tribe’s last record, We Are The Halluci Nation, and will, fittingly, be the first you hear on The Halluci Nation’s upcoming record, One More Saturday Night. The album is a love letter to the Electric Pow Wow gatherings launched at Ottawa’s Babylon nightclub in 2007. It represents an imagined denouement to the biweekly Saturday-night parties that ended abruptly in 2017, without ever getting the proper send-off. One More Saturday Night thus pays homage to the parties’ energy and momentum that elevated The Halluci Nation to this pivotal point in their career of fully mastering their own music style while also moving beyond club music; or “mixing dance music with dance music,” as Bear Witness succinctly puts it.

SaskTel SK Jazz Festival: Too Many Zooz with Tord Gustavsen Trio

Sunday, July 3, 2022
7:00 PM / Broadway Theatre
Too Many Zooz with Tord Gustavsen Trio Too Many Zooz

The curious thing about being a fan of brasshouse? You're pretty much talking about being into one solitary but extremely unforgettable band: the amusingly monikered Too Many Zooz. After two years, a gazillion live performances and four EPs, their debut album Subway Gawdz (an unsubtle reference to their birth in the underground stations of NYC), was released to enthusiastic acclaim in 2016. Its sound was truly like nothing else, with inescapable grooves that take in dub, soul, funk and ska, utterly exhilarating horn blasts that shoot right up your spine, and, of course, equal doses of fun and attitude.

Tord Gustavsen Trio

With the 2003 release of Changing Places, Norway’s Tord Gustavsen came forth with a new sound that commanded worldwide attention, an extraordinary achievement given the rich history of jazz piano. He focuses on lyricism in a stripped-down approach where beauty and emotional intensity are united. He writes most of his group’s material, memorable compositions that echo his days playing in church. His ninth album for ECM Records has just been released and is entitled Opening. The piano trio explores the idea of being open to the forces around you and letting them inspire what one plays. Ten new Gustavsen compositions are joined by works of Norwegian composers Geirr Tveitt and Egil Hovland.

SaskTel SK Jazz Festival: Patti LaBelle with Opening Performance by Jack Semple

Tuesday, July 5, 2022
7:00 PM / TD Mainstage, Bessborough Gardens
Patti LaBelle with Opening Performance by Jack Semple Patti LaBelle:

Beautiful, simply does not describe the incomparable force known to the world as Patti LaBelle. As time continues to evolve, the soulful songbird’s name has become synonymous with grace, style, elegance and class. Belting out classic rhythm and blues renditions, pop standards and spiritual sonnets have created the unique platform of versatility that she is known and revered for.

It’s a small wonder that Patti has time for anything else in between recording and touring, but she makes time and the world is oh so happy that she does! She has written six books, Don’t Block the Blessings, LaBelle Cuisine: Recipes to Sing About, Patti’s Pearls, Patti LaBelle’s Lite Cuisine, Recipes for the Good Life and Desserts LaBelle. Recently, Patti released a 20th anniversary edition of her New York Times bestselling cookbook, LaBelle Cuisine, featuring three new recipes.

In 2007, she introduced Patti’s Good Life, a successful food and lifestyle brand that offers a variety of frozen comfort foods, breakfast items and desserts, including her world-famous sweet potato pie. The Patti’s Good Life brand is available at retailers across the United States including Walmart and Target. Always a person to take on new challenges, in 2017 Patti launched a record label, GPE Records, and released her first jazz album, Bel Hommage.

The same motivation that had Patricia Louise Holte blossom from a choir member to lead vocalist for Patti LaBelle & The Bluebelles and later Labelle, to a solo artist, is the same energy that keeps her fire burning at seventy-seven years young. “Each year I grow, and that’s a blessing from God. I do what I can do. I do what I feel God has given me the energy to do, so I just go out there and I do it…it’s not about making money because I don’t need money, but I need to sing. With a voice or without, I’ve got to get on that stage.” And the world is thankful that Patti’s voice sounds so good to our ears.

Jack Semple:

Jack Semple has won a Juno, two Western Canadian Music awards, two Gemini nominations and the national Guitar competition “Guitar Wars”. In the last four years Jack has been touring the US with the help of Manager Steve Ozark. Steve Ozark booked gigs for Jack and his band in New York(BB Kings on Times square) Memphis(Beale street Music festival)New Jersey (The record collector) Mount Baker Blues fest,Thunder Bay Blues fest,RBC Ottawa Blues fest. Jack will be performing music from his award winning CD Qu’Appelle plus new songs from his latest recording “Can’t stop this love”!

SaskTel SK Jazz Festival: Bahamas with Ruby Waters

Wednesday, July 6, 2022
7:00 PM / TD Mainstage, Bessborough Gardens
Bahamas with Ruby Waters Bahamas:

2018’s Grammy-Nominated Earthtones saw Bahamas joining forces with bassist Pino Palladino and drummer James Gadson (the rhythm section behind D’Angelo’s Black Messiah), and even merging them with his stable of longtime heavyweight musicians on Kimmel. Jurvanen created Sad Hunk with those same collaborators — Christine Bougie (guitar), Don Kerr (drums), Mike O’Brien (bass), and Felicity Williams (vocals). Recorded by longtime producer and multi-Grammy nominee Robbie Lackritz (Feist, Jack Johnson, Robbie Robertson), Sad Hunk is the next step in Afie’ virtuosic signature style of restraint as a guitarist. It also features the graceful guitar work of Sam Weber, a virtually unknown musician whom Jurvanen discovered on YouTube. “I sort of had a musical crush on Sam, so I invited him to open for us a few years ago and we ended up hitting it off,” says Jurvanen. “I asked him to come out and record with us without even knowing what I wanted him to play, which is generally how I like to work with people: I always think it’s so much more interesting when you let them find their way into the songs on their own.”

An album born from charmed spontaneity and raw imagination, Sad Hunk unfolds in a genre-less groove-heavy and jangly sound beautifully suited for Jurvanen’s warm vocal presence. In its musing on what’s essential and what’s expendable in today’s world, the album offers up songs like “Own Alone” — a brightly kinetic track threaded with a bit of self-effacing wisdom (“Too broke to feel so wealthy/Too young to feel unhealthy/Too old to understand the selfie/Too far gone for you to help me”). “That song came from being fascinated by how being on our phones all the time changes us at a cellular level — it changes the way you think, it changes the way you operate,” says Jurvanen. “I’m not suggesting we become Luddites and churn our own butter, but I do think we need to question whether you really need to have this thing on you at all times.”

Ruby Waters:

Critically-acclaimed Métis/Slovakian singer-songwriter Ruby Waters, often praised for her unique, raspy voice, evoking the enduring talents of Janis Joplin and Amy Winehouse, has quickly garnered attention as a fast-rising indie alternative artist over the past two years. Hailing from the small town of Shelburne, Ontario, and the child of two musician parents, Waters was immersed in the world of music from the day she was born. She mixes modern tempos and catchy guitar riffs with a decidedly unrefined approach to every song she makes, maintaining a signature raw energy. Her most recent EP, If It Comes Down To It (Oct. 2020), received worldwide acclaim, and features the single “Quantum Physics,” which amassed over 3 million streams in just 6 months, setting the bar for what’s to be expected from the young, soulful artist. In the same year, Waters peaked at #5 on Canadian Alternative radio and Rock radio with the single “Supernatural,” all of which culminated in her being chosen as Spotify’s Radar Artist at the end of 2020. Waters was hand-picked by international best-selling artist City & Colour to open for their US tour with multiple sold-out dates in major US markets including New York and Los Angeles. She’s already captured the attention of Billboard, CBC, and NOW Magazine, and is celebrated for her music’s moody sounds and powerhouse vocals, coupled with her honest and unapologetic lyrics. Ruby Waters is strongly positioned for a fast ascension, with no signs of slowing down.

SaskTel SK Jazz Festival: The Strumbellas

Wednesday, July 6, 2022
8:00 PM / Broadway Theatre
The Strumbellas

Formed in 2008, multi-award winning internationally renowned alternative rock band The Strumbellas have built their career on crafting exceptional songs, easily connecting with fans through their honest and relatable lyricism and versatile sound. The two-time JUNO Award winners have spent much of their time on the road, delivering standout performances at such notable festivals as Bonnaroo, Governor’s Ball, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits and more.

Their 2016 studio album Hope gained international attention with single ‘Spirits’ topping the Billboard Alternative Songs chart, earning them the JUNO Award for ‘Single of the Year’ and a coveted performance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. ‘Spirits’ has since been certified 3x Platinum in Canada and Italy, Platinum in Germany, and Gold in Belgium, France and the United States. Their 2019 release Rattlesnake and lead single ‘Salvation’ garnered another TV performance opportunity, this time on Late Night with Seth Meyers, and the track went on to win the band a 2020 SOCAN ‘Rock Music’ Award.

Now, with four full length albums under their belt, an iHeartRadio Music Award, three Canadian Radio Music Awards and two Canadian Independent Music Awards, The Strumbellas recently reconfigured from six to seven members, adding frontman Jimmy Chauveau to the mix after original lead Simon Ward opted to pull back from the rigorous touring schedule that’s become routine for the group. The latest iteration of The Strumbellas look to the future of the band, working towards the next chapter of their career; ever evolving, adapting and growing. The Strumbellas are Jimmy Chauveau (lead vocals, acoustic guitar), Jeremy Drury (percussion), Jon Hembrey (guitar), Darryl James (bass), Isabel Ritchie (strings), David Ritter (keys), and Simon Ward (songwriter).

From Kansas City, Mo Heart, formerly known as Monique Heart, became a legendary fan favorite on Rupaul’s Drag Race as a runner-up on All Stars and the franchises’ biggest competition yet: UK v The World. Since the show, Mo has conquered television and music - hosting Amazon Music’s flagship show The Walk In which visits the closets of music icons like Lil Nas X, Maren Morris, Charli XCX, and more, to discuss how fashion influences their music and vice versa; It was nominated for 3 Webb’s this year. She launched her own line of hydrating face masks with Mo Beauty which, when applied, re-create some of her most iconic drag looks, and will star in multiple Paramount+ projects this year!

Tanika Charles:

Formerly known as the best kept secret in soul music, Toronto-based singer Tanika Charles has become a staple of the scene both at home and abroad. Her music revels in honesty and attitude. Her live show is high energy and endearing. The 2x Juno Award nominated and 2x Polaris Prize long-listed singer continues to win audiences over one stream, one Shazam and one encore at a time.

Backed by her band The Wonderfuls, Tanika has embarked on 5 international tours across 9 countries since releasing Soul Run, including 70+ headlining performances. Together they oscillate between faithful recreations of her studio recordings and cross genre nods to rock, gospel and country influences.

Salt Shaker: The Alley Dawgs, The Garrys & The Local Group

Friday, July 8, 2022
9:00 PM / Danceland at Manitou
The Salt Shaker Festival!

The Salt Shaker Festival is coming July 8th and 9th to Manitou Beach with live music at a variety of venues in the height of summer! Block off the 2nd weekend in July in your calendar and join us for a shake'n'bakin salty good time celebrating some of the best live music on the prairies in the most beautiful beach town from here to Tofino!

The Alley Dawgs Alley Dawgs

Imagine you died and went to a honky tonk and it was the best damn honky tonk you'd ever seen. Where the people are all like characters in a movie — dressed up and dancing, leaning into the nighttime and letting it fill them with excitement and wonder. Beyond them, the band, the big freewheeling engine that drives the honky tonk, fueled by small bills and mid-range Irish whiskey, somehow perfectly blending in with their surroundings while simultaneously charming the patrons with exhilarating instrumentals, tender ballads, and everything in between. You sit down at the bar and blow some foam off a beer, asking the hunched man next to you, "Who's the band?" The man turns and looks you dead in the eye and says, "Those assholes? That's THE ALLEY DAWGS!"

Check out The Alley Dawgs here!

The Garrys Garrys

The Garrys are a band of siblings from the coldest part of the landlocked Canadian prairies. Formed in the spring of 2015, The Garrys use layered 3-part blood harmonies, hazy sun-bleached melodies, classic lo-fi guitar tones, and syncopated surf beats to create a unique “doom-wop” sound, dripping with dark nostalgia and touched by psychedelic dread. Their music is likely to leave you with an urge to do the Watusi, bittersweet thoughts about slow-dancing with your middle school crush, or a nagging feeling that it’s not quite safe to go back into the water.

Check out The Garrys here!

The Local Group Local Group

Taking their name from the cluster of galaxies, the Local Group plays music of astronomical proportions. With their next album (Produced by Clayton Linthicum of Kacy and Clayton) set to be released in May of 2022 via Grey Records, this young Saskatoon-based quartet puts their own unique spin on hard-driving traditional bluegrass, while seamlessly blending in their original songs and their passion for country, Celtic, and Canadiana. Featuring Justin Vilchez on mandolin, Jaxon Lalonde on banjo, Elliot Dillabough on guitar, and Ethan Peters on bass, The Local Group showcases hot instrument picking, tight 3-part harmonies, and a mixed bag of instruments including double bass, fiddle, harmonica, penny whistle and triangle. Their show has been described as “tight and charmingly zany” and is guaranteed to take you out of this world!

Booji Bomb Ezra Harvey

Booji Bomb plays with sounds and melodies to make pop music from another world. Most often colourful and cartoonish, the music can topple into stressful, hectic spasms or drift into calming, floating melancholy. No matter the mood, a sense of playfulness pervades the music. Inspired by new wave, techno, and PS1/N64 BGM, the music is characterized by synthesizer voices singing call-and-response melodies over off-kilter, grooving dance rhythms formed from warped samples and bouncy basslines. Genre: Intelligent Dumb Music

Salt Shaker: Veneer, Beach Body, Ezra Harvey, Micah Jane & Peace Akintade

Saturday, July 9, 2022

Veneer Veneer

Veneer’s enchanting trifecta of sentimental souls create a universe of music that is soft, strong, and blatantly vulnerable. This multi-instrumental gaggle of creators is not your typical three-piece; accompanied by brass and woodwind instrumentals, and wielding six instruments in total, Veneer’s enticing harmonies and haunting hooks will have their tunes stuck in your head for days. Veneer was formed by longtime pals and musical partners Sam Sarty (Living Hour) and Talula Schlegel (PC Cherry) in August 2016, sharing vocal duties on a song recorded for a compilation album released later that year. Veneer quickly began attracting attention from local promoters and sought out drummer and vocalist Claire Boning (Basic Nature) as the steadfast final addition to the band. Veneer has since developed a loyal following with their playful, tender, and captivating live performances.

During their time in Residence, they wrote and directed COSMOS as a way to share the work they have been creating over the past three months. This deeply personal showcase uses an immersive blend of songwriting and spoken word poetry to tell the coming of age stories of two young emerging artists. With themes of nature, climate change, and good vs evil, COSMOS is a profound visual experience that will leave the audience eager for more.

WILD RIVERS

Monday, July 11, 2022
8:00 PM / Broadway Theatre

“The more I see, the less I know about it.” It’s one of the first, most prominent lyrics on Sidelines, the much-anticipated full-length album from indie trio Wild Rivers. The phrasing is brief but says everything about adjusting to young adulthood — and beyond. The world places infinite pressure on us to have a plan for the future, but, as Wild Rivers eloquently articulate throughout Sidelines, it’s healthier to acknowledge — and even embrace — the not knowing.

Comprising Khalid Yassein [guitar, vocals, keys], Devan Glover [vocals], and Andrew Oliver [lead guitar, synths], Toronto’s Wild Rivers have a gift for penning introspective lyrics and genre-fluid melodies that transmit wisdom beyond their years. The 10-track Sidelines, co-produced by Peter Katis (The National, Interpol, Sharon van Etten) and Wild Rivers and recorded in Connecticut, Los Angeles and Khalid and Devan’s college town of Kingston, Ontario, touches on coming-of-age themes, such as learning how to be more present and coming to terms with life’s unpredictability.

In many ways, the group’s own story is one about embracing the unknown. Born in Canada, Khalid, who is half-Egyptian, and Devan, who spent her childhood in London, England before returning to Canada, first connected at Queen’s University in Kingston in 2013. Starting out as an acoustic singer-songwriter project, Khalid and Devan expanded their aesthetic to a more full-bodied sound, adding multi-instrumentalist Andrew, who Khalid calls their “Swiss army knife.”

An Evening with Crash Test Dummies

Tuesday, September 13, 2022
7:30 PM / Broadway Theatre

It's been 30 years since the Crash Test Dummies recorded their debut album, "The Ghosts That Haunt Me". Their first album garnered them their first big hit, Superman's Song, and JUNO Award for Group of The Year. Over three decades later, their sold out 25th Anniversary Tour for multi-Grammy nominated "God Shuffled His Feet" is proof that audiences still want to hear what they have to say.

"We have been so excited with the response to the 25th Anniversary tour that we knew we had to continue the party and celebrate 30 years since we made our first album. We had no idea that fans would be so enthusiastic and we are all a little gob-smacked that we can still play sold out shows to our fans and, awesomely enough, their kids." says original member Ellen Reid.

Their 2022 will see them tour North America and Europe, where fans have been anxiously waiting. The shows will include hits and fan-favourites from the band's vast catalogue. Original members Brad Roberts, Ellen Reid, Dan Roberts, and Mitch Dorge will be joined on-stage by Stuart Cameron and Marc Arnould.

"After a long absence from the road, Crash Test Dummies have begun to tour again. Not something I'd planned on, but surprisingly, at least to me, there are lots of people who, years later, still want to hear us. That people continue to return to see the band all these years later still stuns me. It's very humbling. The folks that come out to these shows tell us their stories and there are many gems; many are very funny, some are very dark, and all are very personal. It's very humbling, being in the confidence of so many people," says lead singer/songwriter Brad Roberts.

Joel Plaskett Emergency with Mo Kenney

Friday, September 16, 2022
8:00 PM / Knox United Church

From rocking Halifax’s Marquee Club to performing for the masses at Massey Hall or touring the country with his father, Joel Plaskett has forged a reputation as one of Canada’s most engaging performers and respected singer-songwriters.

Plaskett’s songs are a perennial part of the national playlist, a fixture on “best of” lists, and the soundtrack to the lives of faithful fans across the country and around the world. His accolades over a quarter century include a Juno Award, numerous East Coast Music, Canadian Folk and Music Nova Scotia awards, and two Polaris short list nominations.

Plaskett’s new project, 44, is his most detailed musical weave yet. A sprawling box set comprised of four, 11-song albums connected visually and thematically, at its heart 44 is an imaginative rumination on trying to slow down and grow up in a rapidly accelerating world.

Plaskett began his musical career in the early 1990s as a member of alt-rock favourites Thrush Hermit, recruiting lifelong fans as the band toured North America in a half-size school bus, setting up their signature neon ROCK & ROLL sign from show to show.

In the early 2000s, Plaskett started touring under his own name with his band, The Emergency (featuring Dave Marsh on drums since 1999, and for the last 14 years, Chris Pennell on bass). Backed by the Emergency and racking up a growing roster of anthemic singalongs, Plaskett worked his way up from small clubs to opening for Paul McCartney and the Tragically Hip, and filling larger venues with his own devoted audience.

Plaskett is a versatile and ever-evolving artist, at turns delivering intimate and idiosyncratic singer-songwriter fare (In Need of Medical Attention, La De Da, The Park Avenue Sobriety Test); incendiary riff-rock (Down at the Khyber, Truthfully, Truthfully), left-leaning folk rock (Solidarity), as well as conceptual epics and off-kilter feats of musical stamina (Ashtray Rock, Three, Scrappy Happiness, 44).

Recorded to analog tape, Plaskett’s records reflect his attention to detail, his dedication to technique, musical history and craft, and a sincere and inimitable lyrical style that runs through his diverse and ever-expanding catalogue. In addition to producing most of his own records since 1999, Plaskett has also set up shop behind the console at his New Scotland Yard studio in downtown Dartmouth, N.S. His work with artists like Jimmy Rankin, Two Hours Traffic, David Myles, Sarah Slean, Shotgun Jimmie, Dennis Ellsworth, Old Man Luedecke, Dave Marsh, Colleen Brown and longtime collaborator Mo Kenney has led to numerous awards for production, and turned New Scotland Yard into a popular destination for artists looking to develop and document their sound.

In front of the studio is The New Scotland Yard Emporium, where Plaskett has partnered with Halifax mainstay Taz Records to bring a curated selection of records to his adopted hometown, providing a spot where music fans can congregate to grab a coffee or beer while they dig for records.

In a world increasingly connected—and disconnected — by digital mediums, Joel Plaskett prefers to make his connections the old-fashioned way, building community at his studio and shop, dedicating himself to the art and authenticity of songwriting and analog recording processes, and moving audiences with the electrifying, uplifting experience of live performance.

In all aspects of his work, Plaskett embraces both the communal and individual experiences music provides. The ways music and words combine to connect with the listener, turning a minute into a moment out of time, reminding us that we aren’t alone.

KEN MODE with VILE CREATURE and MARES OF THRACE (Amigos Cantina)

Saturday, September 24, 2022
9:00 PM / Amigos Cantina

KEN MODE
w/ Vile Creature and Mares of Thrace
Amigos Cantina
Saturday, September 24, 2022
9PM Doors / 10PM Start Time
Co-Presented by THE BROADWAY THEATRE and AMIGOS CANTINA

KEN mode
Kill Everyone Now mode. KEN mode: an ethos legendary Black Flag frontman Henry Rollins would use to describe the band’s state of mind while taking the stage for the endless touring cycle of their genre defying classic album ‘My War’. This proved to be the psychological foundation and attitude for the project Royal Conservatory of Music trained brothers Jesse Matthewson, B.Comm (Hons) and Shane Matthewson CA/CPA, B. Comm (Hons), would dedicate their entire adult lives to, seeing them spread a manic form of metal and hardcore infused noise rock across the globe.
Cutting their teeth in the early aughts, when chaotic hardcore was at its peak, KEN mode would find breakout underground notoriety with a quintet of critically acclaimed records in the 2010’s, working with a who’s who of metal and hardcore producers in Kurt Ballou (Converge) for their Venerable LP (2011), Matt Bayles (Botch, Isis) for Entrench (2013), Steve Albini (Nirvana, The Jesus Lizard) for Success (2015), and Andrew Schneider (Unsane, Cave In) for Loved (2018), all while maintaining an unrelenting tour schedule with such acts as Russian Circles, Torche, Deafheaven, Norma Jean, Kylesa, Pelican, Daughters, Revocation, Full of Hell, Inter Arma, Today is the Day, Birds In Row, and more; along with seeing them hit a multitude of major festivals like SXSW, Hellfest Open Air, CMJ Festival, Pitchfork Festival Chicago, Hopscotch Festival, and Roadburn Festival; and doing live sessions for renowned institutions such as BBC Radio 1 and Daytrotter. NULL, the band’s brand‐new aural abrasion, may be the group’s quintessential statement of mental collapse and despair made sonic, a direct psychological reaction to the collective experience of the last two and a half years. Drawing from not only the desperate noise and industrial sonics of the 80’s and 90’s ala Swans, Einsturzende Neubauten, or even a Nine Inch Nails, the band has mixed in a decidedly more desperate tone to their already pointed metallic hardcore influenced “extreme noise rock” (see Melvins, Today Is The Day meets Converge and Botch), that has become their signature.

Vile Creature
Vitriolic blackened doom duo, Vile Creature is the epitome of heavy metal. The Canadians are confrontational, abrasive, transgressive, and, above all, loud. They stand in opposition to authority, serving as the spiritual successor to bands like Slayer and Morbid Angel, but, instead of rebuffing Christianity (an increasingly mundane topic in metal) members Vic and KW are rejecting oppressive gender identities.

Mares of Thrace
Formed in 2009 by vocalist/guitarist Thérèse Lanz and drummer Stef MacKichan, Calgary, Alberta noise-doom duo Mares of Thrace released their debut, The Moulting, the following year. Produced by Sanford Parker (Nachtmystium, Pelican, Yob), it was critically acclaimed and a hit at campus radio, as was its ambitious follow-up The Pilgrimage, a three-act Biblically inspired tale weaving the historic melodrama of King David’s relationship with Bathsheba around Lanz’s grinding riffs and MacKichan’s juggernaut percussion. In those two years alone, the band logged tens of thousands of miles touring across Canada and the USA and received rave reviews from noted publications such as Decibel, Terrorizer, blabbermouth and PopMatters. Newly reconstituted around Lanz and bassist/drummer Casey Rogers, Mares looks to build on their magnificent doom-metal legacy with their third full-length and first album in just under a decade, The Exile.

An Evening with Jesse Cook

7:30 PM / Knox United Church

Just over a year ago, I was getting ready to begin the Tempest 25 Tour. In honor of the 25th anniversary of “Tempest”, my first CD. I didn’t know it at the time, but there was a larger and very real storm in our path.

Of course, at this point, the whole world knows what happened next. There was no tour, there were no concerts. And we’ve all lived through a storm like nothing we’ve seen before in our lives.

For those of you who had tickets from a year ago, thank you for your patience and understanding, as we have been working hard to find the right time to start again. We wanted to be sure that when we did return, everyone would be safe.

And finally, today, after much hard work, I am proud to be launching (or is it relaunching?) the TEMPEST TOUR II, almost 2 years later.

Whether you have tickets from a year ago, or are looking for new show announcements, please refer to my website, as it will have the most up to date links and information.

It’s time for us to come together in celebration. I hope you’ll join me in kicking social distancing to the curb, bring your dance shoes, and let the rumba party begin!

Hope to see you soon!!

An Evening with The Bros Landreth

Saturday, October 29, 2022
8:00 PM / Broadway Theatre

The Bros. Landreth welcome a new day with Come Morning, an album that marks both a rebirth and refinement of the JUNO-winning band's blend of North American roots music and harmony-heavy soul.

The most immersive, emotive record of the Landreths' career, Come Morning finds brothers Joey and Dave lacing their melody-driven songs with layers of atmospheric synth, organ, and textured guitar. The group's previous albums shone a light on their strength as a live act, capturing the spontaneity and sonic stomp of a band of hard-touring road warriors. If those records unfolded like snapshots of The Bros. Landreth's nighttime shows, then Come Morning sketches a markedly different picture, showcasing the introspection and clarity that comes with a long period of rest.

For Joey and Dave, rest wasn't always an easy thing to find. From their early days attending their father's gigs as babies ("Mom would take us in the bassinet and stick us under the bar tables," says David) to their years logged onstage and on the road, they've spent much of their lives being moved — both physically and emotionally — by music. After pursuing separate careers as sidemen, they launched The Bros. Landreth with 2013's Let It Lie, a debut album that drew upon the shared soundtrack of their childhood — Bonnie Raitt's blues, Little Feat's funky country-rock, Ry Cooder's eclectic instrumentals, Lyle Lovett's twangy traditionalism — for a sound that saluted the past while planting its flag firmly in the present. This was music for the heart and the heartland, with songs that evoked the American South one minute and the windswept prairies of the brothers' Manitoba homeland the next. Fittingly, the siblings spent years crisscrossing Canada and America in support of its release, then toured overseas as their popularity swelled.

Let It Lie won the 2015 JUNO Award for "Roots & Traditional Album Of The Year - Group," earned The Bros. Landreth a nomination for "International Artist of the Year" at the 2016 UK Americana Music Awards, and received praise from heroes like Bonnie Raitt. Building a global audience took a toll on the brothers, though, and Dave temporarily stepped away from the lineup for three years. Joey used that time to launch a solo career, with albums like Whiskey and Hindsight cementing his reputation as a modern-day guitar hero. By the time the siblings reunited for their second album, '87, things had changed.

"When we decided to record a sophomore album for The Bros.," Joey explains, "it was fraught with confusion, resentment, and tension. Dave and I both desperately wanted to get back to making music together, but there was a lot to unpack." '87 arrived in September 2019 and marked an expansion of the band's sound, but its accompanying tour was cut short by the Covid-19 pandemic. Deflated, Joey and Dave found themselves back home in Winnipeg, riding out the lockdown by funneling their energy into a new batch of recordings. For years, they'd begun each album the same way: by assembling a band and playing together in the studio, allowing their live performances to form the foundation of each song. It was an approach that highlighted the chemistry they'd sharpened on the road, but it didn't always encourage exploration or intentionality. With Come Morning, things were different. Forced to keep a tight circle due to Covid restrictions, Joey and Dave worked together in near-seclusion, pulling long hours in the studio and building songs one instrument at a time. They recorded, layered, stripped away, and layered again. Sounds were sampled, re-sampled, and twisted into something new. Prioritizing moody textures over fiery fretwork, Joey took an understated approach to the guitar, saving his big solos for key moments. He placed an equal emphasis on keyboards, beefing up the recordings with Hammond organ and analog synth. Slowly, steadily, the Landreths pieced together a transportive album built for the heart, the head, and the headphones. This time, the songs weren't the only thing telling a story; the sounds told a story, too.

On "Stay," the two brothers — both of whom became first-time fathers shortly before Come Morning's creation — look for a balance between a touring musician's commitments to the road and a family man's priorities at home. "After the Rain," one of two songs co-written with Jonathan Singleton, finds them optimistically clinging to the silver linings that shine through the darkest of times, while "You Don't Know Me" mourns the loss of a friendship over achingly sparse percussion, soft swells of organ, and gorgeous pedal steel work from guest musician Joe Pisapia. With "Corduroy" and "Come Morning" — two songs about examining emotional damage to repair what's been broken — Joey and Dave even give a nod to their recent history of mending bridges.

"The overarching theme here is hope," says Joey, who shared production duties with longtime collaborator, Murray Pulver. "Many of these songs lean into the tough stuff, like processing emotional trauma and finding strength on the other side. It's a bit of a myth that you're ever done working on that. Dave and I have just begun the journey, and that's why this record represents the rebirth we wanted '87 to be. We're working through the pain, processing it, unpacking our baggage, and beginning to move forward. Last time, we were just walking on a rug that had all kinds of stuff swept under it."

Come Morning is a new dawn for The Bros. Landreth, featuring appearances from Leith Ross (whose 2020 debut was released on the Landreth's record label, Birthday Cake) and drummers Aaron Sterling and Daniel Roy. At the album's core are the Landreths themselves: two born-to-collaborate brothers who sing songs about hard truths and new beginnings, having been brought back together during a time of unprecedented isolation.

Blackie and the Rodeo Kings 25th Anniversary Tour with special guests Digging Roots

Thursday, November 3, 2022
8:00 PM / Broadway Theatre

The pandemic emerged as Blackie and The Rodeo Kings marked their 25th anniversary as a band with the release of King of This Town. They plan to pick up right where they left off, writing and releasing more music and hitting the performance stage as often as possible. Originally, Colin Linden, Stephen Fearing and Tom Wilson came together to record what was supposed to be a one-off tribute album to the great Canadian songwriter Willie P. Bennett. The result was High or Hurtin’: The Songs of Willie P. Bennett. The band had no plans to make a subsequent album but something unanticipated happened. “When we play together and sing together as Blackie and the Rodeo Kings, something magical happens. We haven’t asked ourselves what it is all these years and we’re not going to start now”, as Stephen Fearing describes it. Recognizing this special chemistry and the resulting joy of creating music together has brought Blackie and The Rodeo Kings back to stage and studio again and again. King of This Town is the band’s ninth release. “After each album, we are never certain we will get together to make another, but then something will happen and we are reminded of the joyride that is Blackie,” explains Tom Wilson.

Twenty-five years in, while they still spend most of each year working on their individual projects, Blackie and the Rodeo Kings has organically evolved into one of the finest roots-oriented bands in North America. Tom Wilson sums up the Blackie and The Rodeo Kings journey: “25 years later, we’re still digging in for the sweet spots. Making friends with the ghosts of poets and harmonizing with the voices in fields and swinging for the fences.”

Matt Dusk Sings Sinatra

Wednesday, November 16, 2022
7:30 PM / Broadway Theatre

NEW CONCERT DATE! The show with Matt Dusk has been rescheduled to November 16th at The Broadway Theatre. All previous tickets purchased will be valid for the new show. All you need to do is update your calendar and we'll see you there!

Multi-award-winning, Platinum-selling artist Matt Dusk has been enthralling audiences around the world for years, leaving in his wake a series of radio hits, acclaimed albums, and a loyal fan base that continues to grow with every passing year. After several successful jazz and pop albums, Dusk returns to his roots with Sinatra, an up-tempo tribute to the Chairman of the Board himself, the man who sang some of the most beloved songs of all time.

An energetic show with all the production value of a Broadway musical, Sinatra, takes the audience on a musical journey through Frank’s incredible career, including its ups and downs, hilarity and heartbreak. Through Matt Dusk, we re-visit Ol’ Blue Eyes from his days making Bobbysoxers swoon to his time with the Rat Pack, cracking jokes and singing tunes before heading out to hit the blackjack tables. A career that spanned decades is carved into one spectacular night of music and fun.

‘It’s like Sinatra at the Sands,” Dusk says from his home in Toronto, “a night of crooning and cocktails. I’ve been singing these songs since I could rent a tuxedo, and there is nothing more swingin' than stepping on stage with a smokin' band performing timeless hits that everyone knows. This show is about the music, the musicians and the memories from that era.”

After twelve studio albums that have racked up numerous Gold and Platinum awards along the way, it’s interesting that Dusk has chosen just now to pay tribute to the man who first inspired him to sing in the first place.

“Frank’s music has connected with people for decades, and so many personal memories are anchored around his songs,” Dusk explains. “I sang his songs to my daughter when she was born, and I’ve even sung ‘em at divorce parties.” He laughs, but his point is clear: the music of Frank Sinatra is not only timeless, it’s also the soundtrack to many different parts of people’s lives.

Dusk feels the time is right for revisiting Sinatra’s catalog, and not just for those who fell in love with the songs when they were new.

“It’s hard to imagine that anyone wouldn't know who Frank Sinatra was,” he says. “but in my numerous conversations with people under 30, it surprises me that some don’t. I love to be that first introduction to one of the greatest singers of the 20th century, a man who influenced so many artists from Bob Dylan to U2. Great music never dies, and neither should Frank’s legacy.”
