Jukebox Hits Live with Freddy Vette and the Flames

September 10 @ 7:30PM

Tickets are $35.00.  Membership discounts are available! 

Jukebox Hits Live with Freddy Vette and the Flames

Rock & Roll from the 50's lasted well beyond that decade. The recordings of all of the great artists from that time still sell millions a year and sound as good as ever. However, nearly all of the artists who created the music are gone – Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, Roy Orbison, Carl Perkins, Ricky Nelson. 
 
Anyone from that era will tell you that Rock & Roll was at its best and most explosive when played LIVE in front of a LIVE audience.  Someone has to pick up where those before left off. Freddy Vette & the Flames have been doing their part since 2002 – a band seemingly plucked from fifties and transported 50 years into the future. Seven musicians and singers playing the hits of Elvis, Jerry Lee, Buddy, Fats, Chuck Berry and more. Their attention to not only the musical details but the visual presentation of this music is second to none.
 Jukebox Hits Live with Freddy Vette & The Flames captures the excitement, the electricity, and the sheer FUN of ground-zero for Rock & Roll, the 1950's. Wailing sax, thumping stand-up bass, every song an instant sing-along for the audience. Freddy Vette & the Flames help keep rock & roll looking eighteen and fabulous!
 

Sing Street

September 13 @ 7:00PM

Tickets are $12.00!  TIFF Tuesdays - Films on the Scugog presents Sing Street!!   (14A)

 
In 1980s Dublin, 14-year-old Conor (Ferdia Walsh-Peelo) is looking for a break from a home strained by his parents’ relationship and money troubles, while trying to adjust to his new inner-city public school where the kids are rough and the teachers are rougher. He finds a glimmer of hope in the mysterious, über-cool and beautiful Raphina (Lucy Boynton), and with the aim of winning her heart he invites her to star in his band’s music videos. There’s only one problem: he’s not part of a band…yet. She agrees, and now Conor must deliver what he’s promised - calling himself “Cosmo” and immersing himself in the vibrant rock music trends of the decade, he forms a band with a few lads, and the group pours their heart into writing lyrics and shooting videos.
 
“Sing Street is the most romantic movie you'll find anywhere these days, brimming over with music, fun and the thrill of first love.”  Rolling Stone Magazine
 
“…a heartfelt, funny and artful coming-of-age movie set in 1985 Dublin.” 
 
“…by turns funny, heart-wrenching, soaring and surprising.” 
 
 “Sing Street is a winning, thoughtful musical drama from the director of Once that celebrates creativity. …a rallying cry to be bold, take chances, and make mistakes on the way to self-expression. It's steeped in music and will likely make adults who watch it with their teens nostalgic for the 1980s -- and motivated to help their kids discover classic acts.”

Tickets are $55.00.  THE STAMPEDERS ~ IN CONCERT 
 
‘They're on their way, to the city lights’ ... and, THE predominant Canadian Rock ‘n’ Roll band of the 1970s – The Stampeders – are bringing along all their classic hits: Wild Eyes, Carry Me, Oh My Lady, Devil You, Monday Morning Choo Choo, Minstrel Gypsy, Hit the Road Jack and, of course, the quintessential Canadian – and Hall of Fame – song, Sweet City Woman!  A veritable soundtrack to a whole generation that will ‘carry you home’ ... maybe not to Birmingham ... but back to a time of tie-dyed t-shirts and elevator shoes, 15¢ coffee and homemade apple pie, dating and dreaming ...  By the time The Stampeders get to the first chorus of the first song, everyone will be singing along. 
 
No seventies group represented Canada's musical identity to the world like The Stampeders. A quick look at Canada's music scene from 1971 until 1976 confirms The Stampeders were truly the country's international musical ambassadors, touring more extensively in Canada and overseas than any other Canadian group during that time.  In 1977 the trio: Rich Dodson (lead guitar), Kim Berly (drums) and Ronnie King (bass) parted company but reunited, fittingly at the Calgary Stampede, 15 years later in 1992.  Since then they’ve been recognized by SOCAN for their Lifetime Achievement, been inducted into the SOCAN Songwriters Hall of Fame on five occasions and the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame for their 1971 seminal hit Sweet City Woman.                                                                                                                    
The enduring musical legacy of The Stampeders... 'better catch a noon train, better get there for a rock 'n' rolling good time!’
