There’s Good Rocking Tonight

Have you heard the news?  There’s good rocking tonight at Ted’s Range Road Diner.  A rocking band at the Wednesday night jams is a Meaford tradition that’s been going on for decades, but it’s hard to find a rock band performing on a Friday night in Meaford, especially this time of year.

It’s Chris Scerri and Horseshoes and Handgrenades, playing tonight, Apr. 13th, at Ted’s.  The band will start at 8 with a more mellow set for dinner patrons and then the music will get as wild as the game on the menu as the band rocks out until around eleven.

The band this time out includes, along with Chris, Beaker Granger, Jayden Grahlman, and Erik Vandeweerdhof.  There is no cover.

You can start your evening earlier with a glimpse of Meaford’s future music stars at GBCS when they run the first round of the Music Madness competition in the high school cafeteria.  A variety of styles and musical configurations will be competing for audience approval in a one-on-one competition.  A second show on May 11th will complete the competition.

On Saturday night, bad boy violinist Ashley MacIsaac plays Meaford Hall.  After the show, stop by the Leeky Canoe to catch local country singer Carla Crawford who will be joined by Glenn Bladon.

On Sunday afternoon, the open mic at the Barn will be hosted by Ray Martini.

The Thursday Outlook – Sept. 21 to 25, 2017

At Kimberley Hall, just down the road from Meaford, a special art show is running all weekend and on Saturday night it will include live music from some local favourites.  East Back Line, with Paul Woolner, David Marshak, Beaker Granger, and Tom Thwaits, will be on hand along with Chris Scerri’s new band Horseshoes & Handgrenades with Jon Zaslow, Beaker Granger, Erik Vandeweerdhof and as a special guest, violinist Victoria Yeh.  The music is just part of a weekend-long celebration of local visual artists billed as “Apple and Art”.

If you can time it right, be on Hurontario Street in Collingwood today at 12:30 and you’ll be treated to a special pop-up concert with Tyler Yarema and Chuck Jackson at one of the pianos that are set up on the sidewalk.  This is part of the promotion for a show that these two blues veterans have planned at The Historic Gayety Theatre on Oct. 5th.

Saturday night on Hurontario street it’s the annual Collingwood Art Crawl which includes live music in the evening from the Mike McCarthy Band.
