November Rain Shows

30 Nov

And November comes… The clocks fall back, it gets cold and rainy outside, it gets dark at 4pm. For me, this month is the reintroduction to the warm cozy Irish pub – Fionn Maccools. Yes it’s a corporate chain pub, but it’s been a home for me for the last 5 years. In particular – Britania, Clarkson, Davisville and Oakville GTA locations have been a great place to play Irish standards and originals. My November shows had that vibe, playing standards like ‘Black Velvet Band’, ‘Some say the devil is dead’ into classics like ‘Beast of Burden’ , or ‘Dancing in the Dark’.

With winter approaching, it’s still been a great place to play to warm crowds.

Halloween Gigs

15 Nov

Without a doubt, this years Halloween gigs at the Madison were full of craziness. Performing inside a haunted house with black lights everywhere, not to mention wearing a beast mask while singing, was completely surreal. I’m still trying to get over it. When else can I play songs from The Rocky Horror Picture Show to Ghostbusters to Thriller. A truly crazy night that I will remember for years to come…or not.
