The original Eagles Tribute! 
For almost three decades now HOTEL CALIFORNIA have been recreating the legendary sound of THE EAGLES, and thrilling audiences all over the world. The band set the bar in 1986, and they’ve remained the industry leading substitute for The Eagles ever since. Playing to huge outdoor and arena audiences, sharing bills with some of rock’s legends, and going places no tribute band has gone before. A long run by any measure, but it begs the question - what makes HOTEL CALIFORNIA so special? Well, incredible lead vocal similarity, intensely accurate instrumental work, soaring harmonies, and top flight live performances, just for starters. These are the band’s hallmarks, and the foundation on which their reputation has been built. With over a century of collective professional experience in the band today, they’re still going stronger than ever in 2014.
HOTEL CALIFORNIA’s show has evolved into a masterful celebration of The Eagles’ music. One of the most game-changing song catalogs in the history of rock n’ roll is performed to perfection before your eyes and ears. The band also offers tons of value-added promotional support and materials to every client, and the confidence that industry insiders have in them has made HOTEL CALIFORNIA one of the world’s most accomplished tribute productions. You can check them out any time you like, but you’ll never want to leave.
If you love The Eagles, then welcome to the Hotel California – you’ve just found the next-best thing.

Dean Brody will be bringing his Dirt Road Stories Acoustic Tour to the Academy Theatre!  In the midst of an exhilarating album launch, Dean Brody brings his brand new album, Beautiful Freakshow, coast to coast through local media appearances, and country radio listener events, culminating in a special live performance in Toronto, to kick-off the announcement of national tour dates, beginning April 2017.
The past year saw Brody take home a JUNO Award for Country Album of the Year, along with 4 CCMA Awards for the top selling digital Canadian country single of all-time, “Bring Down the House”. Beautiful Freakshow isBrody’s sixth album, and it’s one that takes risks and delves outside of the comfort zone of traditional country, with songs such as the progressive title track, featuring a rap vocal from Halifax native Shevy Price, and the mellow reggae vibe invoked from “Beautiful Girl”. And yet, the record manages to simultaneously stay true to what many fans have come to love and expect from Brody, with traditional tracks destined to be classics, such as, “Time”, “8th Day” and “Blueberry Sky”, which features iconic country legend, Vince Gill on the guitar.
Supporting act is Andrew Hyatt

The Academy Theatre goes "under the sea" with its production of The Little Mermaid. 
In a magical kingdom beneath the sea, the beautiful young mermaid, Ariel, longs to leave her ocean home to live in the world above.
Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen's most beloved stories and the classic animated film, Disney's The Little Mermaid is a hauntingly beautiful love story for the ages. With music by eight-time Academy Award winner, Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman and Glenn Slater and a compelling book by Doug Wright, this fishy fable will capture your heart with its irresistible songs, including "Under the Sea," "Kiss the Girl" and "Part of Your World."
Ariel, King Triton's youngest daughter, wishes to pursue the human Prince Eric in the world above, bargaining with the evil sea witch, Ursula, to trade her tail for legs. But the bargain is not what it seems, and Ariel needs the help of her colorful friends, Flounder the fish, Scuttle the seagull and Sebastian the crab to restore order under the sea.
Disney's The Little Mermaid offers a fantastic creative opportunity for rich costumes and sets, as well as the chance to perform some of the best-known songs from the past 30 years.


November 23 @ 7:00PM

The cast of “OH WHAT A NIGHT!”, the internationally renowned tribute to Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, celebrates the Christmas season with a  show that returns to Canada by popular demand… one that definitely creates “holiday sparkle”.
In the “OH WHAT A NIGHT!” Christmas show the cast will warm you up with some of the most popular songs from their fast paced musical tribute to the legendary Frankie Valli and then transform you into a Christmas wonderland with a brand new tribute to “Mr. Christmas” himself – the great ANDY WILLIAMS. 
“OH WHAT A NIGHT!” Is an in-depth musical revue, bringing to life thirty of the Four Seasons' hits.  It's a captivating tribute to the songbook of this Rock and Roll Hall of Fame super group with note-perfect renditions of the iconic "Jersey boys"! The show features 4 talented performers singing live that “feel good” music you grew up with that made the name Frankie Valli known around the globe.
In the 1960’s and 70’s the ANDY WILLIAMS television show was a staple in households around the world and his annual Christmas shows were some of the most anticipated specials ever made. His “Moon River” Theatre (named after his signature song) was the first non-country music theatre to be opened in Branson Mo., and allowed this iconic performer to remain in front of his loyal fans until shortly before his passing. 
The talented cast of “OH WHAT A NIGHT!” easily recreates the legendary sound of “Andy Williams and the Williams Brothers” with such songs as “It’s The Holiday Season”, “Jingle Bells”, “The Christmas Song”, “White Christmas”, “It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the Year” (which was written specifically for The Andy Williams Show), and of course “Moon River”. 
“Everybody loves these songs.  The melodies and harmonies are great to sing and the songs are always a special memory for somebody”, says producer George Solomon. 
Staying true to the original recordings this tribute to Frankie Valli & Andy Williams honours the talents of two American legends.  Don’t miss this incredible musical experience.


The Legendary Downchild Blues Band

November 24 @ 8:00PM

It's tempting and not altogether far-fetched to apply an engine metaphor to the mighty Downchild, one of the planet's foremost most feted, longest-running blues outfits with quite possibly the best back story ever told.
Roaring through bracing, high-octane performances since 1969, the band founded and continuously steered by harmonica and guitar ace Donnie "Mr. Downchild" Walsh is as vibrant today as when Dan Aykroyd and the late John Belushi were inspired by Downchild for their brilliant Blues Brothers venture back in the 1970s. The pair elevated Downchild's "Shotgun Blues" and Walsh's "(I Got Everything I Need) Almost" to smash status on their 1978 Briefcase Full of Blues record.
Actually, the 2017 iteration of Downchild - with each member boasting a minimum of 20 years of service - might be the most electrifying yet. For proof, simply check out the sextet's towering, lid-lifting, juke-joint jumping 18th studio album, Something I've Done, a bona fide group effort and a sonic hit.

Saturday Night Special

December 1 @ 8:00PM

Tickets are $39.00.  Lynyrd Skynyrd is without a doubt one of the most iconic rock bands to emerge from the US and is best known for having popularized around the world the Southern rock music genre during the 1970s. The band gained worldwide recognition for its live performances with signature songs like "Sweet Home Alabama" and "Free Bird". But at the peak of their success, lead singer Ronnie Van Zant, guitarist Steve Gaines, and backup singer Cassie Gaines died in a highly publicised airplane crash in 1977 putting an abrupt end to the 1970s era of the band. Due to popular demand, the surviving members re-formed in 1987 for a reunion tour with Ronnie’s younger brother, Johnny Van Zant, on lead vocals.
Lynyrd Skynyrd continues to tour and record with co-founder Gary Rossington along with Johnny Van Zant and Rickey Medlocke. 
Lynyrd Skynyrd has sold 28 million records in the United States alone and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on March 13, 2006. Now, Canada’s own Saturday Night Special is coming to the Lindsay Academy Theatre to deliver a tribute in the true essence of the iconic southern Skynyrd sound.

Classic Lightfoot Live

December 8 @ 7:30PM

Tickets are $39.00.  Honouring the Legendary GORDON LIGHTFOOT

Take a trip down memory lane. The show features dozens of timeless songs from Gordon Lightfoot’s extensive catalogue. Lead singer John Stinson has spent the last decade recreating our favourite Lightfoot music in this incredible tribute to Canada’s legendary singer/songwriter. “Lightfoot’s music reflects what it means to be Canadian. His lyrics tell stories; his stories, our stories, Canadian stories. They reach out and touch audiences in deep emotional ways.”
The show features a wonderful ensemble that brings the studio recordings to life. Stinson, on lead vocals and guitar, is backed by the impressive musical talents of Steve Eyers on bass guitar (Lightfoot’s nephew), Eric Kidd on lead guitar (former student of Red Shea), JG Jones on keyboards and Malcom Gould on percussion. Each of them has been highly influenced by Lightfoot’s music and the passion comes through in every performance! 
Don’t miss the excellent tribute show, CLASSIC LIGHTFOOT LIVE!
