The third season of the Blues Series is kicking off on Saturday Nov 11, 6-10 pm at Bridges Bar and Grill, in Pakenham.
The series will run on the second Saturday of each month through the winter. This year, we are spicing things up by adding Wayne Dagenais on keyboards to the Mississippi Snye Rhythm Section (Bill Serson- drums & Kenny O - bass). Our first guest host is Alain Tambay, who just released his new CD – “Alone” - last week.
It's an early show - 6:00 to 10:00pm so we hope you can drop by to eat, drink, and listen to live local music.
In the meantime, we'd like to remind you that we're hosting the late night at the OSDS Anniversary dance and would like to see you there!
Stay tuned and thanks so much for your understanding.

An award-winning guitarist-singer-songwriter, considered one of Canada's most electrifying and versatile guitarists, Cécile plays an average of 150 shows per year. She is quickly earning a stellar reputation and a place alongside Canada’s current roster of great guitarists. Powerful and raw with an exceptional stage presence, she is a force of nature whose lyrics and sound make for an enthralling and intimate experience.
She has released four albums to critical acclaim, been commissioned by the Canadian Broadcast Corporation (Home, a song on immigration) and was awarded the 2013 SPACQ Foundation Edith Butler Award for Excellence in French Songwriting for Gris (2012). She’s been nominated for five Maple Blues Awards in the last two years.
This new CD is packed with amazing talent. Fronting the band is both Rebecca Noelle (La Voix, The Peptides, David Gogo, and The Rumours) and Jeff Rogers (The Cooper Brothers and Silver Creek) on vocals. Both musicians have very successful careers on their own but have decided to bring their talents to the project.
With a sonically monumental performance and an energizing visual display, The Commotions command every room they play, drawing in audiences with their sizzling brass section, thumping backbeat, and sensitive ballads.
Come and join us for our CD release party at Ottawa's Babylon Nightclub on December 1.
ON HOLD for the foreseeable future.
