Burton Cummings and More
Burton Cummings brought his one man show to the Centrepointe Theatre last night and it was everything I was hoping for and more. Despite his repeated requests for forgiveness as he was not 100%, I thought he put together a great show. His vocals have barely diminished over the 45+ years we’ve been hearing him on the radio and he can still hammer out the tunes on the keys. Add in a mix of humour and some great stories and you end up with a great trip down memory lane.
Jonathan Roy – son of Patrick Roy – played a short, but good acoustic guitar opening for the show last night. He has had some recent radio play with a song called Danliella Denmark but, to be honest, I prefer the solo acoustic version over the radio version. I look forward to hearing more from this up and coming Canadian artist.
Earlier this month I made it over to the Rainbow for the John Primer show. This is the second time I’ve seen him play and when I the show was announced, I knew it was one I had to attend. If you like old-time Chicago Blues, then you will love seeing John Primer. I’m glad I had an opportunity to see him play once again.
In case you hadn’t noticed, the Rainbow has some fantastic acts booked over the next month and I’ll be going to a number of them including Philip Sayce, Paul Deslauriers Band, Shawn Holt & the Teardrops and David Gogo. For those who are interested, there are also two Monkeyjunk CD release shows on Nov 12/13 and Trevour Finlay will be playing on Nov 19.
Happy Concerts everyone!
