from SueFest.ca

The idea for SueFest was born in late 2013 after
the sudden passing of an incredible community member
known for her gentle kindness, musical ability and
commitment to the deaf blind community.
Susan Elaine Wallbank-Maher was a local teacher who
spent a lot of her time fundraising for charitable causes.
That is why we are excited to boast that in the festivals first
year we raised nearly $10.000 for continued research for
The Heart & Stroke Foundation of Canada!

Tickets are available:
Online: Ticketscene.ca
In Person: P.A. Music Shop (139 Charing Cross St)

Future for Molly, Scott’s Legacy Lives On.

Ten (10!) great bands
all coming together to remember Scott Randall
and raise what they can for his daughter Molly.

Tickets are available now at

from facebook:

The sudden passing of our dear family member and friend Scott Randall, has left our hearts with an emptiness that words can’t explain.

Scott’s beautiful, amazing and extraordinarily intelligent eleven year old daughter lives on without the companionship, fun and financial aid that her father provided.

Let’s come together for a fun night of music, food, prizes and camaraderie in Scott’s memory and get the lovely Molly a giant start on her education fund!

Also, many of you have asked, “what can I do to help?”
As you know, Scott was a chef (and a very good one, at that!!), and he loved food.
We would love to have people bring something they love to eat to share.

We’ll have live music right from 4:00pm on.

Thee Empty Hours 4:00 – 4:45
Chris Strei 5:00 – 5:45
Pay No Mind 6:00 – 6:45

Brant Men of Song @ St. Pius X – Feb 28th @ 7:30pm

The Brant Men of Song will be singing for charity

The Brant Men of Song sing for charity.

For over 50 years the Brant Men of Song have been uplifting people with their vocal stylings, and on Saturday, February 28th they’re bringing the show to the St. Pius X Parish Community Church.

from brantmenofsong.ca:

In many ways the Brant Men of Song have returned to their roots. Outside events have helped to precipitate this. The Associated of Male Choruses of American went bankrupt and has yet to recover. The Associated Male Choruses of Ontario has become less active. At the same time the Brant Men of Song and the Brant Belle’ A’ Dears [now the Brant Country Singers] have refocused on entertaining people in Brant County and surrounding communities. The two choirs have been able to create a flexible program in which audiences are treated to the music of a male chorus, a ladies chorus and a mixed choir. The music continues to be a versatile mix of sacred, folk, show, movie and popular music with a dash of classical.

This event will be supporting the Stedman Community Hospice, free will donations will be accepted in lieu of cover charges.  Show starts at 7:30pm.
