Melanie Peterson in duo mode at the Toronto Island Marina !

Hey Mellies! Some of you may know that from time to time over the summer I’ve been hosting the open stage at the Toronto Island Marina filling in for the astonishing Prince Perry. I’ve been asked to host again and so I will be hitting the stage this SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 13TH at 9pm sharp. Of course, I will gladly give up the stage for other interested folks (YOU??) to play songs (covers or originals), but ultimately I’ll have the opportunity to play as much of my own material as you want to hear and will be taking requests! Best part is, it’s a FREE show! I’ll be accompanied by Peter Collins on bass and backing vocals.  See you there!

BS Friday’s Artist Showcase

BS Friday’s is a Toronto networking group of singer-songwriters, bands, music managers, producers, booking agents and more who get together on a bi-weekly basis to brainstorm (BS) music related questions and concerns.

This Wednesday Sept 3rd 9pm in the back room of the Cameron House (408 Queen Street W) we will be holding a BS Friday’s showcase night  focusing on the singer-songwriters of the group. $6.00 gets you in to see 6 including me. I’ll be performing with my trio. (Peter Collins on bass and Mitch Girio on guitar)

Great music and good times are always guaranteed when we have a BS Friday’s showcase night.

Please feel to reach out to me if you need more details about the showcase.

 

Cameron House-8.5x11 Please RSVP so we can get an idea of how many people are coming to the showcase!

 

I’ll look forward to see you there,

I’ll Show You Mine If You Show Me Yours

This Friday August 22nd I’ll be performing at AND hosting the Toronto Island Marina’s open MIC. This will be a fun event for you to attend for these 5 reasons:

1-NO COVER CHARGE (tho you do have to pay for the ferry ride over to the island)

2-THE FERRY RIDE OVER TO THE ISLAND

3-THE BEAUTIUFL SETTING IN WHICH YOU WILL ENJOY LIVE MUSIC, REALISTICALLY PRICED FOOD AND DRINK

4-I’LL BE PERFORMING AS MANY SONGS AND WHICHEVER SONGS OF MINE YOU’D LIKE TO HEAR AND I’LL HAVE HUNKY PETER COLLINS ON BASS

5-YOU ARE WELCOME, NO ENCOURAGED, TO DO A FEW TUNES YOURSELF.  COVERS OR ORIGINALS.

Take the 8pm ferry across,  then enjoy a meal. The show starts at 9pm and goes until 11pm so you can easily catch the last ferry back to Toronto before midnight. After that you have to rely on the water taxi which is a bit more pricey.

Hope to see/hear (!) you there.

Hugs and mushy stuff!

Melanie Peterson in Niagara Falls

Happy Canada Day!

I have the honor of having been invited to play in Niagara Falls this month. Peter Collins (bass), Mitch Girio (guitar) and I plan to put together a hugely entertaining show. I love the adventure of playing outside of Toronto with these talented musicians at my side. If you are near Niagara Falls and have a chance to come hear us at the Dunn Street Grill (6095 Dunn Street) on Saturday July 26th, 9pm you wont be disappointed. It’ll be a fascinating trip through past, present and future material at this comfortable family restaurant with a bit of a pub feel.

Read about the gig here.
