"I’m really excited to be performing where I grew up. Many of my songs were born, arranged and rehearsed in Barrhaven, but we’ve never performed there. "A Homecoming", if you will. It will be a night to remember in an elegant and comfortable setting. I hope you will be part of this rare double-header. This show will be filmed--striving for the “ultimate take,” all stories will be told, all risks will be taken, and all moments will be magical! "
Safe Low Limit is a new jazz oriented group that consists entirely of instruments pitched in the bass clef. This exciting, eclectic band uses tuba, trombone, cello and drums to create a truly different musical experience and incorporates an equally eclectic variety of obscure standards, funk hits and original compositions in a wide variety of jazz and pop styles to leave the audience wondering what in the world will they do next!
Safe Low Limit: definitely not for the high minded...!

Blues At The Farm this Spring:
Gomes has been creating virtuosic, burning blues since his recorded debut in 1998 and is showing no signs of stopping by releasing his most successful album to date. Electric Field Holler, riff-laden and his most rock influenced album yet, has been nominated for Blues Album of the Year and already made several ‘Best Of’ Lists.
Anthony Gomes has headlined concerts in 17 countries and has had the honor of sharing the stage with B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Robert Plant, Joe Bonamassa, Heart, Alice Cooper, Jonny Lang and Kenny Wayne Shepherd.
Not only has he shared the stage with the likes of B.B. King and Buddy Guy, he also founded the Music is the Medicine Foundation in 2010 a non-profit organization dedicated to changing the lives of others through the healing power of music. Through private donations and grants, the foundation has funded song writing scholarships, offered music education programs, and donated musical instruments to those in need. Without passion there is no music; Anthony Gomes gets it… on so many levels!
Gomes sings and plays with integrity and deeply felt emotion oblivious to fortune and fashion.
