The Stampeders – Tickets on sale Nov.30 @ Astor Theatre
Apr 7 @ 7:30 pm

THE STAMPEDERS ~ LIVE IN CONCERT

Coming To Select Atlantic Canadian Theatres

TICKETS ON SALE FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 30TH!

‘They’re on their way, to the city lights’ … and, THE predominant Canadian Rock ‘n’ Roll band of the 1970s – The Stampeders – are bringing along all their classic hits: /Wild Eyes, Carry Me, Oh My Lady, Devil You, Monday Morning Choo Choo, Minstrel Gypsy, Hit the Road Jack /and, of course, the quintessential Canadian – and Hall of Fame – song, /Sweet City Woman!/ A veritable soundtrack to a whole generation that will ‘carry you home’ … maybe not to Birmingham … but back to a time of tie-dyed t-shirts and elevator shoes, 15¢ coffee and homemade apple pie, dating and dreaming … By the time The Stampeders get to the first chorus of the first song, everyone will be singing along.

No seventies group represented Canada’s musical identity to the world like The Stampeders. A quick look at Canada’s music scene from 1971 until 1976 confirms The Stampeders were truly the country’s international musical ambassadors, touring more extensively in Canada and overseas than any other Canadian group during that time. In 1977 the trio: Rich Dodson (lead guitar), Kim Berly (drums) and Ronnie King (bass) parted company but reunited, fittingly at the Calgary Stampede, 15 years later in 1992. Since then they’ve been recognized by SOCAN for their Lifetime Achievement, been inducted into the SOCAN Songwriters Hall of Fame on five occasions and the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame for their 1971 seminal hit, Sweet City Woman.

The enduring musical legacy of The Stampeders… ‘better catch a noon train, better get there for a rock ‘n’ rolling good time!’

Reserved seating tickets for THE STAMPEDERS are $66.50 (tax and facility fees included) and go ON SALE FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 30TH @ 11:00am and are available from the box offices listed below.

Planetarium Star Party – 7:30pm @ Astor Theatre
Apr 8 @ 7:30 pm

Lecture host Tony Schellinck will show you, with minimal training and investment, how you can start to find deep sky objects (DSOs) in the night sky. Using photographs he has taken of the stars, he will take you on a tour of the night sky and then show you how to use binoculars and small telescopes to find a galaxy, planets and their moons, nebula, open clusters and globular clusters. Viewing the night sky will never be the same again. If you have binoculars please bring them to the show as you will be able to practice finding deep sky objects while in the theatre. If the weather cooperates, after the show we will go out to a darkish place nearby and find these objects and constellations in the night sky using binoculars.

 

Admission – $5

Jazz Affair – Wishes Tour @ Astor Theatre
May 18 @ 7:30 pm

Jazz Affair unites six unique voices (three females — three males) into a colourful and dynamic whole. Their repertoire is varied and includes jazz standards and popular songs rearranged with a jazz touch. Influenced by Manhattan Transfer and New York Voices, two flagship bands of American jazz, Jazz Affair stands out by its 100% a cappella sound, making it one of the rare professional vocal jazz bands in Canada.

Formed at Laval University in 2009, Jazz Affair made a splash from the start by winning the Concours du Disque at Laval University two years in a row, in 2010 and 2011. In April 2012, the group was chosen for the Harmony Sweepstakes A Cappella Festival in New York where it won two prizes: the prize for best arrangement and the prize for best soloist, awarded to Marie-Pier Deschênes. Since then, Jazz Affair has taken the stage at many events and festivals, such as the Festival de Jazz de Quebec (2013), the Francofolies in Montréal (2013 and 2014), the Montréal A Cappella Festival (2013 and 2014), Sutton Jazz (2016) and the Festival International des Hautes-Laurentides (2017). Coming out strong with their first album (JAM) which came out in early 2017, the group now aims to find new audiences beyond its native Quebec. A tour in British-Colombia and two conferences in Western Canada are coming on fall 2018. Jazz Affair is now recording its second album (WISHES), which will launch in early 2019.
