Brantford Open Stage @ Best Western – April 12

Brantford Open Stage at the Best Western on March 13th

Great live jam with the community.

The Brantford Open Stage will be happening, one time only, on a Sunday afternoon!

Usually held every other Friday, this week the Open Stage will be taking place at a special date and time: Sunday at 2pm.

Best Western plus Brant Park Inn is once again hosting the fun & folksy open jam for local musicians.

from brantfordopenstage.org:

We are oriented to folk and acoustically-based music in general.
The emphasis is on encouraging live performance.
We are an open mic forum for performers,
both accomplished and developing,
to present a 2-song (10-minute) set.
Additional note: Please keep in mind that as a live music venue,
we discourage the use of performing to ‘backing tracks’.
Your cooperation and understanding is appreciated.

(Note also; there are usually enough accomplished musicians around to put together instrumental back-up.)

If you’re interesting in taking part in the Brantford Open Stage
get in touch with Dave Jensen.

What? Brantford Open Stage

The Elmo Combo @ Brantford Casino – April 11

the Elmo Combo at Zander's on Saturday, March 7th

the Elmo Combo hits again

A whirlwind of Homegrown, Roots Rock, Funky jams, and Reggae grooves,
the Elmo Combo always put on an excellent show.

From Brantford (and the Norfolk area), the Elmo Combo
(who have recently made another TV appearance,
this time on CHCH morning live),
are back in town to play for us hometown folks.

from elmocombo.com by Jamz M.H. Maher:

Fronted by singer/songwriter Steven Elmo Murphy (guitar, vocals), and backed by eDDie mAx (drums, vocals) with Jon Edwards (keys, vocals) and Gabe Atkinson (bass) The Elmo Combo have become a notable force on the indie music front and are riding the cusp of their break out year.
For years “The Elmo Combo” have been entertaining audiences of all sizes from coast to coast! With an appearance on Breakfast Television Calgary, Three Western Canada Tours and 10 years of consistent shows in Ontario, it’s no wonder that the group received an invitation to play La Tour De Norfolk 2014. They have also landed such high profile gigs as The Festival of Friends, in Hamilton On. also sharing some bills along side large Canadian acts such as Blue Rodeo, Matthew Good and The 24th Street Wailers!
The Elmo Combo has developed a well rounded following as a result of their unwavering commitment to their art, their passion and dedication to provide quality entertainment. The group has also collected a vast and diverse musical catalogue that can cater to any crowd at any time. With 4 albums worth of originals written by Steve (one of which being nominated for a Hamilton Music Award) there is no shortage of material!
