Need a quick fix to beat the Decembuary blahs? I invite you to join me at the "Not My Dog," one of those small funky clubs that you've read about located smack in the naughty part of Queen Street West in Toronto - November 30th at 9:00 p.m..
We have a special treat, Canadian Singer/songwriter Stella Rose will be performing a live acoustic set of some of her material from her forthcoming CD.
Haven't heard of Stella Rose? You soon will. Her fan base includes über iconic Canadian songwriter, Ron Sexsmith, who's own fan base includes Chris Martin of Coldplay and two old blokes called Elton John and Sir Paul McCartney. In addition, BBC Radio in the U.K. reviewing Stella, stated: "Wow - Her voice is incredibly strong - unbelievable!!".
If your musical tastes include roots-rock in the style of Neil Young/ Tom Petty, flavoured with a pinch of country, delivered with a powerful, unique vocal style, you're in for a great evening.
In addition to Stella, we've added Don Campbell, another young singer/songwriter to open the evening. Brand-spanking new and fresh out of the box, Don has and easy-going, laid-back style that's punctuated with some pretty nifty jazz guitar licks reminiscent of early John Mayer. The ladies tell me he's also very easy on the eyes although I don't see it myself - but again, I don't argue with ladies.
So gather your significant other, (or find a significant other) and make a date to treat yourself to what's shaping up to be an incredible evening. Sunday, November 30th. "Not My Dog," 1510 Queen Street West Toronto - doors open at 9:00 p.m.
And I've left the best for last: admission is free, but space is limited, so get there early. If for some reason you can't make it, forward this to someone who needs a treat.
See you on Sunday!
