Rick Derringer Band – Saturday August 26, 2017

Young entertainer Rick Derringer was just 17 when his band The McCoys TM recorded the No.1 hit “Hang On Sloopy” in the summer of 1965, knocking “Yesterday” by The Beatles out of the top spot. The McCoys had enjoyed four years of successful touring, when Rick merged his talents with Johnny Winter in 1969 forming Johnny Winter And (And referring to the McCoys).
Throughout the ’70s and ’80s the popular Derringer appeared on numerous albums with artists Alice Cooper, Richie Havens, Todd Rundgren and Steely Dan. The list also includes Cyndi Lauper, Barbra Streisand, Kiss, Mason Ruffner and Madam X. In the mid-80s, Derringer discovered Weird Al Yankovic, producing music for Grammy-winning albums and videos. Derringer’s productions of the Michael Jackson parodies, the No. 1 hit “Eat It”, and “Who’s Fat”, have been Yankovic’s most successful recordings.
After DBA the next project was truly a work from the heart and soul of Rick and his wife Brenda Jean (Jenda Hall). Entitled Aiming 4 Heaven, it brought forth their devotion to God and put it into song with help from their children, Lory & Martin. That project opened the doors for a worldwide release on Reborn Records.
In 2007, Rick released Rockin’ America, featuring the patriotic song Real American, which has been used by The President, during political campaigns, and on the hit FX series, “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”. In 2009, Rick released yet another display of blues talent on Knighted by the Blues, again featuring wife Jenda as co-writer on several songs. In 2010, Rick released an amazing compilation of Freddie, Albert and B.B. King on The Three Kings of the Blues. And finally, the year 2013 marks the 40th anniversary of Rick Derringer’s All American Boy debut solo album and his long journey of successes as producer, songwriter, and player throughout the years.
It seems like almost too much story to take in at one sitting, but the most surprising part is…… after more than four decades he’s still going strong!

The Drifters at The Gayety Theatre, Sunday Aug. 20, @ 2PM

You know the songs, “On Broadway”, “Under the Boardwalk”, “Save the Last Dance for Me”, “Up On the Roof”, “This Magic Moment”, “There Goes My Baby”, and many more. The songs are etched into the memories of music fans worldwide and helped form part of the foundation of contemporary popular music. What these songs have in common is that they are all the product of a veritable hit-making machine better known to their million of fans as The Drifters.

Rick Sheppard is an integral part of that hit making machine. He has been there for more than 45 years. Rick joined The Drifters in 1966 and recorded with the group on Atlantic Records through the early 1970s. During that time, he toured with The Drifters throughout the world and shared stages with some of the greatest names in music and show business. You can look it up in books and anthologies chronicling The Drifters history. Rick Sheppard is prominently featured.

It seems that a songwriter familiar with Rick mentioned his name to legendary manager George Treadwell. George, manager of The Drifters, were looking for someone to replace Drifter Rudy Lewis. His friend, the songwriter, was sufficiently persuasive so that George Treadwell called Rick Sheppard to see if he would be interested in joining The Drifters. Rick thought the caller was a friend playing a joke, so he hung up. Fortunately, George Treadwell called back, assured Rick that he was, indeed, the manager of The Drifters and that the offer was genuine. After a quick apology and three seconds to think it over, Rick Sheppard said, “yes,” and became a part of one of the greatest hit-makers in the history of contemporary popular music. The rest, as they say, is rock ‘n’ roll history.

The Drifters featuring Rick Sheppard are entering their fourth decade thrilling audiences in the United States, Canada, and worldwide. Their show is high energy and visually entertaining, mixing the classic Drifters repertoire that fans have come to know and love along with hits from the 1970s and 1980s done up in the unique Drifters style. In 1996, they released two albums on Capitol/EMI Music: a re-recording of The Drifters “Greatest Hits” and “A Christmas Album”, the first ever album of classic Christmas songs recorded by The Drifters in their long and illustrious career. In 2010, a song from that Christmas album (“The Bells Of St. Mary’s”) was featured in the motion picture “Lymelife.” The “Greatest Hits” album includes “There Goes My Baby,” a two-million seller that was the first big R&B record to feature violins, as well as a number of the groups twenty additional chart hits recorded over the ensuing decade. In all, The Drifters have sold more than 200 million records.

Neil Simon’s widely acclaimed and well-loved movie, Barefoot in the Park, is sure to be a triumph on our stage in 2017! This romantic comedy focuses on a pair of newlyweds, Corie and Paul, as they begin married life in a tiny, 5th-floor walk-up apartment in a Manhattan brownstone. Paul is a strait-laced attorney; Corie has a far more spontaneous, free spirit. As the young couple contend with a lack of heat, a skylight that leaks snow, several long flights of stairs, oddball neighbor Victor Velasco, and Corie’s well-meaning mother, they must also reconcile their own personal differences in how they approach life’s challenges. Adjusting to married life isn’t so easy but can be VERY funny!

The Death and Life of Tom Thomson, an 80-minute one-man show, brings Thomson’s artistic genius to life in brilliant colour and verse. The play begins at the moment of Tom Thomson’s accidental death while canoeing in his beloved Canoe Lake. Invited by a benevolent spirit-guardian, Ralph Waldo Emerson, to explore his life and art, Tom recalls the relationships and inspirations that contributed to his amazing artistic legacy.

The play examines the intersection of art, human relationships and nature. The audience is allowed an intimate look into the character who drew from a deep appreciation and love of nature, technical excellence, and a desire to express the infinite through his art. Drawn from historical documents as well as conversations with members of the Thomson family, this work brings to life this iconic Canadian legend.
The play is written and directed by Barry T. Brodie and will be performed by Jeffery Bastien. It is a cooperative production by Sho–Art, Spirit & Performance and the Arts Council Windsor & Region

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.
