“Join us for a fun evening of drumming, meditation and reflection. This is the first of our free series and is open to 10 participants age 16 and older.. In the future these will be a family friendly event. No experience is necessary.. Bring your own drum or feel free to use one of ours. We look forward to meeting you.
An Integrative Drum Circle is a diverse collection of individuals from all backgrounds and walks of life who gather in a circle to play hand drums and percussion from around the world. We endeavour to create a sacred and safe space in which people can relax into the rhythms making with ease and grace, not fear and competition. In doing so, we connect to each other, to ourselves and to the force of life itself. We play our own beats, and connect to the pulse or the heartbeat of the group. We are intentional, setting a conscious goal for each circle. In doing so, we release negativity, worry, anxiety and fear which allows peace and joy to naturally arise.
RSVP is required due to limited space :) Please give us 48 hour notice if you cannot attend to give the space to another drummer.”

“Now includes hits of The Traveling Wilburys. The BIG O was unmistakable with his trademark sunglasses, his distinctive, powerful voice, his complex compositions and the dark emotional ballads we all love. From 1960 to ’64 Roy Orbison landed 22 songs on the Billboard Top 40, including “Only The Lonely”, “Crying”, and “Oh, Pretty Woman”. His impassioned voice, bridging the gap between baritone and tenor, coupled with his signature arrangements ensured the charting of the hits “Dream Baby”, “Ooby Dooby”, “Blue Angel”, “Blue Bayou”, “You Got It” and “In Dreams”. Tragically, his life was cut short, leaving us only the music.
And, long may the music live! THE LONELY delivers a sensitive and dynamic tribute to the one and only Roy Orbison. Veteran Mike Demers leads this group of musical journeymen in their mutual and deep appreciation of the timeless music of the Caruso of Rock. THE LONELY - CELEBRATING THE MUSIC OF ROY ORBISON approaches the music with a humble spirit and sincere desire to recreate the sounds and feel of the original recordings. The band has been selling out shows right from their debut. Tina Coldwell of TLC Entertainment says, “One of the best tributes I’ve seen and I’ve been in the biz for 22 years.” Be there or be square!

“Tara Holloway’s voice can stop you dead in your tracks. It’s a towering instrument: raw and soulfully weathered, yet capable of precise runs and pitch-perfect delicacy. Her singing is at the centre of her new album, Little Ghosts, due out Spring 2015 through Light Organ Records.
“I’m obsessed with singing,” the vocalist explains. “That’s my favourite thing to do. I love songwriting and guitar playing, and I really enjoy being on stage, but it’s the singing that got me into this.”
Little Ghosts is the culmination of years of dedicated touring and creative growth. In the past decade, the Ottawa-based songwriter has spent time living in Lake Louise, Toronto, Vancouver and Los Angeles, with her guitar acting as her constant companion. Holloway’s debut album, 2010’s Sins to Confess, was pieced together from five years’ worth of scattered studio sessions across the continent. That album’s diverse, bluesy sound caught the ear of Light Organ Records, and the label signed Holloway and reissued Sins to Confess in 2012.
Join Tara Holloway & Sammi Morelli for an evening of lovely music, food and beverages at Soulfood, a peaceful, welcoming and beautiful space.”
