serving of the most entertaining and danceable music, sure to please any age
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
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!

Holiday Spectacular: A Boogie
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.
