FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 23

BOTR: Spencer MacKenzie at The Cove Country Inn

7:00pm
When you hear Spencer MacKenzie sing and play guitar it’s hard to believe that such a young man (he just turned 17!) can play the Blues with so much skill, passion and depth. He is an “old soul in a young body”. His debut album Infected With The Blues is already earning rave reviews and getting major airplay. He’s also landed some prestigious festival gigs this summer including Kitchener Bluesfest, the West Coast Blues Festival, Southside Shuffle and the Canal Bank Shuffle) and is one of the finalists at the Toronto Blues Society’s Talent Search in July 2016. And the Blues Foundation in Memphis has awarded him a scholarship to attend a Blues Camp in Chicago. Spencer is backed by a great young band – not one is over the age of 21! – and will be joined by a Special Guest – Hamilton guitarist BRANT PARKER – for this show (Brant has helped mentor Spencer). I predict a great career ahead for this young man. Come and see him LIVE before he gets famous so you can say “I saw him when”.
Proceeds to Rideau Vista & St. Edward’s Elementary Schools. $65+tx dinner & show. Call to reserve
