CLASSIC LIGHTFOOT LIVE at The Gayety, Sat. June 10, 2017 – 8PM

(Please note the show has been rescheduled from May 13 to June 10, 2017)

John Stinson is a proud Canadian musician who’s been performing in the Toronto area for over 30 years.

One constant throughout the ever-changing soundtrack of the years, was the music of Gordon Lightfoot. In 1988 John moved to Aurora. There, he became neighbours with Lightfoot’s lead guitarists of the last five decades.

“Spending time with Red Shea and Terry Clements brought me even closer to understanding the details and nuances of of Lightfoot’s music. To me, Lightfoot’s music really does reflect what it means to be Canadian. His lyrics tell stories; his stories, our stories, Canadian stories. They reach out and touch audiences in deep emotional ways.”

Since 2007, John has been dedicated to recreating his favourite music in a full theatre show, featuring highlights from Lightfoot’s 20 studio albums. He performs with a very impressive supporting cast of musicians. Each of them has been influenced by Lightfoot’s music and the passion comes through in every performance!

Base Adult Ticket Price is $27.00 with the $3.00 fee would make it $30.00 for Adults.
The Base Seniors Ticket Price is $22.50 with the $2.50 fee would make it $25.00 for Seniors.

MANCHESTER BY THE SEA

Lee Chandler (Affleck) is a loner and the resident handyman for a Boston apartment block.

As if losing his only sibling and having doubts about raising a teenager weren’t enough, the return to his hometown re-opens an unspeakable tragedy. The director has created a world so messy that feelings of grief, love, anger, tenderness and brittle humour swirl about the characters in this very human story.

WEIRDOS

It’s July 1976 in the small Nova Scotia town, Antigonish, when Kit and Alice, teenagers with typical problems, decide to hitch-hike to Sydney to visit Alice’s glamourous but unstable mother. Accompanied by a 70’s soundtrack and shot in black and white, the film’s off-beat sense of humour arises from the ways its characters express their love. These sweet weirdos are temporarily lost but they’re about to help each other find out where they’re headed.

THE HISTORIC GAYETY THEATRE PRESENTS BILL AND JOEL PLASKETT @ 7:30pm

FATHER AND SON COLLABORATE FOR NEW ALBUM, SOLIDARITY

This event is happening April 15, 2017 – Tickets on Sale

Tickets $39.50 Incl HST/Fees. – Please note, tickets will NOT be sold at the door.

BUY TICKETS CLICK HERE

This is an Assigned Seating Event.

  – 2017 sees Joel Plaskett hitting the road with one of his biggest musical influences, his father, Bill Plaskett. Joined by special guests, Peterborough’s Mayhemingways, the father & son duo will perform songs from their new record, Solidarity, and as well as favourites from Joel’s vast catalogue of music. Bill & Joel Plaskett will be at The Historic Gayety Theatre on April 15th, 2017. Tickets are $36.50 plus service fee and go on sale on Friday, December16th, 2016, at 10AM. Tickets can be purchased at the by phone at 1 888-353-3203 or online at www.gayetytheatre.com

When Bill Plaskett and his son Joel Plaskett get together to write songs the result, as Bill describes it, is “a touch of the traditional mixed in with the new, and a lot of the unexpected, arrived at through experimentation.” The result is Solidarity, an album that welds Bill’s traditional folk leanings with Joel’s long and acclaimed history in the Canadian rock landscape.

While Joel is a nationally adored, JUNO Award winning songwriter, the foundations of his talent began at home with his father Bill, who is an accomplished musician himself and co-founder of the Lunenburg Folk Harbour Festival. “My father has certainly been one of my biggest musical influences,” says Joel. “I grew up around him playing guitars and his love of folk music, particularly music from the British Isles and Ireland is something I’ve inherited from him – artists like Bert Jansch, Richard Thompson, and Paul Brady. Conversely, I have introduced him to some of my favourite records by artists like Those Bastard Souls, Led Zeppelin, and Gillian Welch.”

Bill and Joel’s converging approaches to songwriting left lots of room for both to help shape each other’s songs. Bill says the pair spent a lot of time “figuring out what to play, and what not to play, listening critically to each other, and talking about the results. And then figuring out themes, motifs, and connections.” The result of which is “a complementary but different melodic sense that creates a guitar weave that is unique to us,” says Joel. “Between the 6 string, tenor and tiple guitars, the bouzoukis and mandolas, there are a lot of ringing strings on this album. Wouldn’t have it any other way.”

Set for release on February 17 via Pheromone Recordings, the title track, “Solidarity” is a great summation of their collaboration, both lyrically and sonically. “I wanted a song Dad and I could sing together that connected our individual journeys and our personal politics,” says Joel. “The word ‘solidarity’ came to mind and didn’t leave.”

Blackie and The Rodeo Kings at the Gayety – Feb 26 2017

SOLD OUT !!!

Tickets:  $60.00 (plus HST/Fees)
Kings and Kings

BUY TICKETS CLICK HERE

As promised Blackie and The Rodeo Kings deliver the companion to their 2011 collaboration album KINGS and QUEENS.  While KINGS and QUEENS featured guest appearances from some of the band’s favourite female singers, this album, titled KINGS and KINGS features some of the band’s best “guy” friends from the world of roots, blues and country.  Each one of them an accomplished KING in their realm of creative endeavors and in many cases absolute KING legends in the entertainment industry.

Blackie and the Rodeo Kings originally formed in 1996 when Colin Linden, Stephen Fearing and Tom Wilson came together to record what was suppose to be a one – off tribute album to the great Canadian songwriter Willie P. Bennett.  At the time, all three members were deeply committed to burgeoning solo careers that they had no intentions of putting on hold, and had no plans to turn Blackie into an ongoing concern.

Now twenty years later, 8 albums, one Juno award and several JUNO nominations under their belts, Blackie and the Rodeo Kings have organically evolved into one of the finest roots-oriented bands in North America.  Blackie and the Rodeo Kings remains one of Canada’s greatest musical treasures.

Kiss and Cry at the Gayety, Feb 10 2017 – 8pm

Doors open at 7pm!

is a feature film based on the incredible true life story of Carley Elle Allison, a promising 17-year-old Toronto figure skater and singer who made medical history in her fight against a rare, 1 in 3.5 billion cancer. The film stars Luke Bilyk, Chantal Kreviazuk, Naomi Sneickus and Sarah Fisher as Carley. Sarah Fisher and Carley Allison were best friends in real life.
The movie recounts Carley’s life as a teenager battling cancer and the love story she shared with boyfriend, John Servinis. With the script as true as excerpts from her blog, and scenes filmed at the high school she attended, the rink she skated at, and her own bedroom, the film is pure inspiration illuminating how beautiful life is.
