The end of summer is upon us and our fall is filling up fast!

Last month saw us entertain at a number of private functions, starting with a first birthday party on the patio at Myra’s Bar & Grill on Sunday, July 2nd.

It was the first 1st birthday we have ever played and quite a lavish affair at that, complete with a bouncy castle, a crown-shaped archway constructed entirely of helium-filled balloons and an extravagant buffet.

What a unique and incredible way to spend an afternoon!

On Saturday, July 8th, we rolled into Norfolk County for the first time since October, celebrating the union of Carrie and Cormac Davey on the grounds at David’s Restaurant in Port Dover.

It was an intimate and simple reception and the weather and scenery were absolutely perfect. Congratulations to the bride and groom; thanks for allowing us to be part of the festivities!

We were up and on the road early the following morning, just down the shoreline from Dover for our annual appearance at the Haldimand Classic Ford Truck Club Show & Shine in Fisherville.

Another incredible day weather-wise, cracking open some cold ones and basking in the beauty of antique and vintage Ford and Mercury trucks and vans, followed by an enjoyable ride home along the water’s edge.

Rounding out the month was another private party on Sunday, July 30th, this time at Devlin’s Advocate. Our favourite upscale downtown bar was closed to the public for a 60th birthday and we had ‘em up on the dance floor from the very first song.

Thanks to Ryan and his crew for the exceptional hospitality and unbelievable spread - bruschetta, pizzas, salads, meatballs, cheeses - okay, getting hungry, need to stop.

This month came in like a lion with a rare double-header, Friday, August 4th at the brand-new Jeffrey’s Lounge, formerly the legendary Liquid Lounge and Saturday, August 5th at Manny’s Place, arguably the best club in the city.

We played to packed houses both nights and are happy to report we’ll be back at both spots this fall, in addition to visits to the two taverns in town, Buck’s and Frankie’s.

And it wouldn’t be summer without a stop in West Brant! On Saturday, August 12th, we hit the stage during the 8th running of the Brantford Kinsmen Ribfest.

Hundreds of our friends and fans took it upon themselves to ‘meat’ us at Cockshutt Park, as we once again performed prior to our pals in Freedom Train.

Thanks to the fine folks at Alliance Security Systems in Brant, Haldimand, Norfolk and the Tri-Cities for sponsoring our appearance at this annual festival.

After enjoying a weekend off, we are ready to rock twice this Saturday, starting with an ‘hour of power’ during CanJam Revived at the Knights of Columbus at 3pm. From there, we head to the Fin & Feather Marina in St. Williams (near Turkey Point) for their end-of-the-season bash.

For close to a decade, our Labour Day Saturday has been spent at the Norfolk Tavern in Port Dover, but this year we’ll be entertaining the park regulars at Emerald Lake RV Resort.

A trip to Puslinch has become an annual occurrence for us and always ends up being a memorable time. If you’re in the Waterdown area, join us in the air-conditioned comfort of this trailer park event hall next Saturday.

Also coming up next month, we return to Frankie’s Hometown Tavern on Saturday, September 9th and on Saturday, September 30th, we’ll be cranking out the Best Live Music, Bar None! during the 4th annual Rotary Perch Fry at the Boys & Girls Club of Brantford.

Plus, we have tickets! $40/per person for all-you-can-eat fillets and fixings, catered by our friends at the historic Sherwood Restaurant. Get in touch with us and grab yours today!
