Hey There!

It's a Sunday Music Marathon 



Sunday February 21st is going to be a wonderful one.

Jeff and I are the debut performers at Uxbridge's grand spanking new brewery, the awesome Second Wedge Brewing Co.

We'll be playing our eclectic blend of erotic, electronic Moroccan trance music and 16th century Germanic court minstrel music, from 2-4pm.

Then I'll be hop, skipping and jumping a couple hundred metres east, to host my weekly Sunday night Open Mic, at Colonel McGrady's pub.

The #SongPrompt theme is: Gone But Not Forgotten- Late Great Songwriters.

Hope to see you, pal!

-Dare

The Times, They are a Changin'! 



Starting tonight, the sign up for my Sunday Night Open Mic will begin at 5:30pm.
Music begins at 6pm. Sign up ends at 9pm, and the music ends at 9:30.

The SongPrompt Theme this week is a combo of Gillian Welch and Bob Dylan, due to the cancellation last week because of the crazy storm!
And there are some awesome prizes coming up, so stay tuned!

See you soon!

Happy 2016! 

Here are your #SongPrompts for January's Sunday Night Open Mic's at Colonel McGrady's.
This month we're focussing on some very inspired songwriters... some new to the scene, some legends.
Male, female. Folk, Roots, Country, Americana and Rock. I'm looking forward to hearing what you come up with...

Sunday January 3rd-    Neil Young
Sunday January 10th-  Gillian Welch
Sunday January 17th-  Bob Dylan
Sunday January 24th-  Hank Williams
Sunday January 31st-  Jason Isbell

Holiday Break- No OM this Sunday.  

Hey Friends!
Enjoy this Sunday with friends and family, 
as there will be no open mic at Colonel McGrady's
on Sunday December 27th, due to the holidays.
I'll be back at it next Sunday, resolutely.

:) 

And don't forget about the Awesome Wednesday 
night Open Mic hosted by Tania Joy, also at McGrady's FunHouse!

It's Saturday. Let's do this.  


The always delightful Tim & Esther go on tonight at 9pm sharp. Then I'm up, with some magic guests of delight joining me. Then the ever-awesome Dawna H proves she can do a heck of a lot more than just make the best Latte's and ginger cookies this side of the Mississippi... Then I'm up again, to bring everything back to earth before we all head home.  Hope to see you all there tonight!

Love: Randy

Show next Saturday at Wixan's Bridge! 

Excited to say I'll be playing a full night of music 
at Wixan's Bridge in Uxbridge on Saturday Dec. 12th. 
Show starts at 9pm, and goes to the wee hours. 
I'll be joined by some special guests, including an opening set by 
Tim & Esther, and a later set by Dawna H. 
Should make for a great evening of stripped down acoustic bliss.
