MARDI GRAS FAT TUESDAY SUPPER- with Ragwax, February 13, 2018

** MARDI GRAS FAT TUESDAY SOUTHERN SUPPER **


This will be compared to taking a trip, down the Mississippi River, on the Mississippi Queen, with the Mississippi Queen...without having to leave the Hamilton Harbour, Ya'll! 
THIS IS A MARDI GRAS THEMED CELEBRATION IN FULL EFFECT, Old School, New Orleans jazz style, and our musical guests, for this Southern Supper, is Ragwax, who is well known for a jazz style, specific to the years of the 1900's to the 1940's. 
"The Ragwax performance brings fresh vigor to vintage 1900s-1940s jazz. He reinterprets and incorporates blues, jump blues, a bit of rockabilly, original, and modern songs into his strangely familiar sound. The resulting presentation is provocative, personal and distinctly resonant."

His play list will include songs from Tin Pan Alley, to Fats Waller, to Cole Porter, all the way to Doc Pomus and Amy Winehouse. However, on Fat Tuesday, we will be hearing more of the Dixieland jazz, and some good ole swing, Ya'll.

Our special menu for this Fat Tuesday Southern Supper will include Creole Crab Cakes with Remoulade Sauce; Crawfish Etouffee served over white rice; Coleslaw with Remoulade Dressing; Buttermilk Cornbread Muffins; Mardi Gras King Cake; Sweet Iced Tea; & Cafe du Monde Coffee & Chicory.

MARDI GRAS Supper Event with Roberta Hunt & Toby Hughes- January 20, 2018

 

 ** MARDI GRAS SUPPER / SATURDAY AFTERNOON EVENT **

DUO EVENT....Roberta Hunt (piano & vocals) will be accompanied by Toby Hughes (saxophone & vocals).  

Roberta Hunt is an exhilarating jazz and blues musician – she is a singer, piano player and songwriter. With her signature rootsy and blues style, one music critic wrote, “Mix big piano with beautiful voice, add some attitude and a lot of charisma. With a penchant for those you-done-me-wrong songs and her musical roots in the jazz and spirituals of New Orleans: a picture of Roberta Hunt starts to emerge…”

A sought-after musician in the Ontario music scene, Roberta’s personal and exuberant approach to performance has now mixed with the swing/Lindy dance scene resulting in sizzling energy between dancers and the band that electrifies the audience. Roberta’s current jazz, blues, funk collaboration Red Hot Ramble has been stirring up great buzz with frequent performances at live music landmarks like The Rex Hotel, Reservoir Lounge, Dovercourt House, and The Lancaster Jazz Club in Kitchener.

In addition to performing solo and with her own bands (Red Hot Ramble, Bertie and the Gents, Roberta Hunt Trio) in Toronto, Roberta has also participated in the French Quarter Festival New Orleans; Davos Sounds Good Festival, Davos; Rapperswil Jazz Festival, Switzerland; Jazz in Mortigliano, Italy as well as local jazz festivals over her career. The New Orleans influence began early in Roberta’s career when she joined the legendary Toronto New Orleans band “Kid Bastien’s Happy Pals” and held the piano post until 2009.

Roberta continues to write her own jazz and blues flavoured songs and is gathering more inspiration and material for a full length CD of her own music to follow her recently released EP – Seen Me.

Our special menu for this Mardi Gras Afternoon Supper Event includes....

Chicken & Sausage Gumbo served over white rice; Cajun Boiled Shrimp with potatoes, corn on the cob, and pork sausage; Coleslaw with Remoulade Dressing; Mardi Gras King Cake; Sweet Iced Tea; & Cafe du Monde Coffee & Chicory.
