BACK TO WHERE IT ALL BEGAN! MUNSTER - Danby's Bar & Grill
We held the party in Kanata each year to accommodate old friends from Richmond, Stittsville, Manotick and Munster... since most wouldn't go downtown we thought best to hold in Kanata, it being more central for everyone. Every year the party has different crowds, but it turns into a reunion of old faces that get together for some Holiday Fun!
So make a call out to all those "FORMER & CURRENT MUNSTERITES" and all our buddies from Richmond, Stittsville and Manotick to come out and show Munster an Old School Party! But this time hopefully we don't get the cop cars chasing us from the party! ;)
Crunchy Flower will play a li’l music then I will invite some other musical peeps you know ... Eric Lackey, Bill St Amand ... and others to be announced.
Tony D is a staple in Ottawa's blues music scene. Although these days he is kept busy touring with the JUNO winning band MonkeyJunk, when he's home, Tony D brings out his larger blues band and ROCKS the RAINBOW.
In anticipation of early shows starting in 2018, we're starting this one at 9pm!
Great tunes with attitude and style.
Come on down and shake it with us.
Join us to ring in the New Year at Aperitivo!
The best little party in Kanata will include:
Welcome Cocktail, Bubbles at the Bells, great food throughout the evening, and...
Tickets available now!
We are thrilled and honored to share the stage with 2014 Road to Memphis winners Wicked Grin. This will be an amazing night of blues you will not want to miss!
If you are out of town and would still like to contribute but can't make the show, you can send us some coin via our Go Fund Me page:
All contributions will go a long way to help us share our music internationally.
We really appreciate your continued support and look forward to an awesome night of screamin' guitar blues!
Since the release of her 2013 breakout “Pushin' Against A Stone”, June has been patiently at work in the garden of song, nurturing seedlings with love and care into the lush bloom that is her stunning new album, “The Order Of Time”. Some songs grew from seeds planted more than a decade ago, others blossomed overnight when she least expected them to, but every track bears the influence of time. Thankfully for us, June was ready when time told her to harvest these songs. In the garden, as in life, there is a time for everything and the moment has finally arrived to enjoy the fruits of all her labor. With “The Order Of Time”, Valerie June has prepared a bountiful feast, and there's a seat at the table for everyone.
