Rory Taillon – June 23, 2013

If you can’t find a job, hire yourself, is an adage Rory Taillon of Port Perry follows. The 24-year-old turned to music when he discovered few job opportunities upon graduation from Humber’s animation program. He has since released a six-song EP, Closure, and has toured Ontario and Quebec. He was recently nominated for a Durham Blues Society Award and in January will begin a weekly residency at a bar in Oshawa. He already plays several times a week but leaves one day aside for teaching music.

Julien Kelland – July 7, 2013

Julien is a 14 year old Canadian singer/songwriter from Uxbridge, Ontario Canada. She started singing and performing at the young age of 6. Introduced to Shania Twain at the age of 4 and memorizing all the words, Julien found her love for music at a very young age! Shortly after, her Dad helped spawn a love for artists like Neil Young, The Beatles and Fleetwood Mac to name a few. Later she moved onto artists like Pink, Sheryl Crow, Coldplay, Christina Aguilera and Justin Timberlake.

Over the past few years Julien has performed all over the Durham Region with her band. Julien quickly realized that singing and performing was her passion, and that it was all she wanted to do.

With more recent influences like Adele, Kelly Clarkson and Taylor Swift, she hopes to go international with her music.

Le Jazz Hot – July 14, 2013

We play 1920s/30s/40s HOT JAZZ instrumentally (European style jazz on acoustic guitars) in the style of Django Reinhardt & Stephane Grappelli, we mix it up with some New Orleans Jazz from the same era Louis Armstrong/Bessie Smith and throw in a few more standards to round it off (with vocals). Thanks Bill (4 guitars, 1 bass one of our guys plays flute and sax aswell as guitar and both he and I dabble with various percussion instruments for fun, we have lots of fun playing this stuff and it seems to rub off on the audience too)

AfterGlow – August 11, 2013

We are an acoustic vocal trio comprised of Reid Wilson, Margaret Wilson and Marilynn Massie. All three of us are long-time residents of Uxbridge, Ontario. Reid plays rhythm guitar and arranges our favourite songs to highlight and blend our individual voices, mostly in three-part harmony.

Jeff Haynes – September 15, 2013

I’ve been playing electric and acoustic guitar for 30+ years, but only singing the last few. Been an Uxbridge resident for 10 years. I’ve played at some of the different venues around town…the old 66 on Brock, Harlow’s, King Henry’s and recently Col McGrady’s. I’ve accompanied Howard Ross and Tim Bastermeyer on occasion.
Here are some of the bands/musicians that I cover and do my own spin on:
Allman Bro’s
Neil Young
Van Morrison
Bob Dylan
The Who
Eric Clapton
The Band
