Upcoming east AND west end shows!

Dear friends,

Three different venues to catch my show for Toronto folks (and those willing to travel to Toronto) in November!

  1. Every Monday in November (6pm-8pm) my band and I, who have been performing together since 2012, will be performing songs from my 2 full length albums & 2 EPs, as well as auditioning brand new songs for you at this weekly showcase taking place every Monday in November in the front room of the legendary Cameron House. Here are all the details:

Who: Melanie Peterson

What: An intimate two set performance with hunky Peter Collins (bass), Mitchell Girio (guitar) and Lucky Pete Lambert (suitcase).

Why: An opportunity to get the band back together on a weekly basis, and get back into the swing of playing together, in a casual way.

When: Monday November 6, 13, 20, 27! Doors 5:45  pm, show at 6 pm

Where: The Cameron House 408 Queen Street W @ Spadina

How Much: PWYC aka Pass The Hat

2) Saturday, November 11, I’ll be returning to my favorite Queen east venue Castro’s, a cute bar on the Queen 501 Streetcar line.

It’s for all you east end folks who prefer not to go to the west end of the city for your live music needs.

It’ll be the same two sets I’ll be doing at the Cameron House, and you can expect a cover or two throughout the evening in honor of Remembrance Day. Get your requests in now!

When: Friday, November 11. Doors at 8:30 pm, show at 9 pm.

Where: Castro’s Lounge, 2116 Queen St. East, Toronto

How much: PWYC aka Pass The Hat

3) Norm Tumak in conjunction with The Painted Lady has been running a series of “I Love Wednesday’s” events. The next on is on Wednesday November 22, and is a cool way to catch a set from me and other strong solo/duo/acoustic musical acts.

In addition to myself,  accomplished artist and singer/songwriter Arthur Renwick will take the stage.

Who: Yours truly, Arthur Renwick with another guest TBA

Where: The Painted Lady, 218 Ossington Ave @ Dundas St. W, Toronto

When: Wednesday, November 22, 2017.  9 pm -12:30 pm (my set 9:30 pm)

What: Great musical performances. Accompanied by realistically priced adult beverages. It doesn’t get any better.

How much: $10.00 at the door.
