Rock This Town!

Rock This Town! are North America's premier tribute to the darlings of rockabilly, the Stray Cats. Comprised of some of Toronto's most seasoned musicians: Nick Pattison (gtr), Russ Boswell (bass), Jay Burak (drums), Rock This Town delivers a high energy serving of the most entertaining and danceable music, sure to please any age group.

The Stray Cats burst onto the scene in 1980 spearheading the rockabilly revival. They were unique in the market place; offering a brand of old time rock and roll that hadn't been heard since the 1950's. No other band at the time had a stand up drummer and upright slap bass player supporting a crooning, Gretsch wielding guitarist. Nobody else created this much sound and energy from just three people.

Rock this Town captures every nuance of the Stray Cats sound and performance, right down to authentic costume changes and vintage instruments. These guys love to entertain - and it really shows!

Rock This Town are a perfect fit for any crowd looking to have some fun!

The Stray Cats are an American rock band from Massapequa, Long Island, New York, that was formed in 1980 by guitarist/vocalist Brian Setzer, bassist Lee Rocker and Slim Jim Phantom (drums). The group had numerous hit singles in the UK, Australia and the U.S. including "Stray Cat Strut", "Sexy And 17", "I Won't Stand In Your Way", "Bring It Back Again" and "Rock This Town".

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has listed "Rock this Town" as one of the 500 most important songs in the history of rock and roll. By 1982 the Stray Cats were an international sensation that influenced the world of music - as well as fashion.

Rock this Town! is a tribute show performing the music of the Stray Cats with incredible authenticity and style of the original Stray Cats band.

Holiday Spectacular: A Boogie Woogie Christmas

In December, the Richmond Hill Philharmonic Orchestra presented a fun filled Holiday Spectacular show at the Richmond Hill Centre for the Performing Arts. Talented artists, along with a melange of music, took the audience on a journey through the mind of a very bad Santa who was trying to understand why people get so crazy during the holidays. There was something for everyone as characters visited holiday celebrations around the world and discovered the true meaning of friendship.
