And so tonight begins my 10th Season performing at Hog Penny Pub here in Hamilton, Bermuda as the house entertainer - wow! An entire decade of singing rock n' roll music on a tropical island for living :) Thank you to all the locals and tourists who make a point of allowing me to entertain them April through December each year.
If you are curious about what Hog Penny is all about, visit their site and let 'Bermuda's Only Singing Bartender' Jason Bracewell explain (watch the video): Hog Penny Pub Official Website
And a big Rock n' Roll ShoutOut to all my friends and fans who have been voting daily for my song "Trace Your Tattoo" in the CBC Searchlight competition which started at the beginning of the month. With your support, my song has passed the First Round and into the Semi-Finals Round of the Top 25 for the Toronto Region, beating out 750+ other entries!
Your help is still needed to get the song to the winner's podium, so please continue voting everyday. (hint: you can vote from multiple devices and different web browsers).
My pair of live shows in the GTA last month went great and it was awesome to see such great support from the fanbase in Toronto at The Hideout and in Brampton at Spot 1. I've included links to photos of the nights below for you to take a peek at.
My 3 weekly online live stream music shows are back as well! Have you tuned in yet to watch a broadcast? They happen on Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays - more info here: Live Stream Shows Online.
April is probably THE BEST month for weather here, not too humid, but warm enough for shorts with very little wind/storms. I hope things are beautiful wherever you may be too.
Next month I'll be announcing dates for my next UK & Canada Tours - exciting!
Spot 1 in Brampton, ON on Mar 21, 2015
Chris Newman from "Keep The Faith" (Ontario's premier live Bon Jovi tribute band) and I had an idea... what if we had an independent rock musician combine forces and open/perform with a tribute act?
Spot 1 Grill was where we blew up this experimental rock n' roll dynamic and the evening was a smashing access.
The weather warmed up and we rocked it out downtown on a Friday night for a one-off 2.5 hr show at The Hideout on Queen St.
Great turnout and support before my flight out that weekend back to Bermuda to perform for the season at Hog Penny Pub.
