So I take it back, there will be one more last time. May 31st I will host one more Rockin’ the Cradle featuring Jenny Omnichord, and to complete the circle of life, the Leonids will play again, this time with the full band.
There will definitely be a brunch- I know this because I am in contact with the cook! I’m not sure if we we have an extra room or not. Stroller parking may have to be outside, but I’ll post more when I know more.
It looks like we will start at 12pm this time and go until three. To keep us rockin’ while we eat, special family guest Sean Mcgaughey will play.
You really really don’t want to miss this one. It will actually be the last one!
If you want a poster to hang up somewhere, or many, let me know. As you can see, there is one in colour and one in black and white.
This series has been very successful thanks to all of you. Unfortunately it has also been short and sweet, as April will be the last one. I just don’t have the time to organize it any more.
One of the reasons for this is an impending move to Kingston in the fall. The series may be reincarnated there sometime in the future.
Whether you are a regular or a newbie, please come out to the Tranzac and help us Rock out one last time on April 26th. See previous post.
If you or anyone you know would like to keep the series going by taking over the organizational duties, please let me know and I’ll pass on all my knowledge and wisdom;)
If you liked my “work” and would like to pay me to organize something for you, drop me a line:)
On April 26th, from 1 -3pm we will be entertained by the Gnomes and Michelle Rumball
As usual, there will be scarves and shakers and dancing space available as well as a craft table where you can make your own shaker, and a change table for wee bums. Everyone is Welcome aged 0-1000. It’s PWYC (keeping in mind that what you put in the basket is what the musicians will take home as payment).
Hey everyone. Thanks for coming Rockin’ the Cradle #3. What a turn-out! When I arrived to set up, it was a dark and stormy day and the power was out, so it was looking a bit dismal. Fortunately Dirty Dishes have powerful voices and were all ready to play unplugged. Then, just before 1, Shelby Lamb walked in and all the lights came back on. Really! It was amazing. Brunch was wonderful and we had the largest crowd so far.
We finally got the sound the exact right volume so it wouldn’t hurt even the newest baby’s ears, but still sounded fantastic. Thanks to everyone who helped out (Maureen and family), Natasha, Kyle, Amira, Chrissy and Cassandra and the Tranzac gang etc.)
If you missed this show, don’t worry, there is a large chance both dirty Dishes and Shelby Lamb will play again soon.
Stay tuned for info on #4 in April (April 26th, 1-3pm).
The Gnomes will be playing as well as someone else, whom I have not yet confirmed.
I just heard that there will be brunch served for this Rockin’ the Cradle (March 29th). It is the same chef that they had for Rockin’ the Cradle #1-he’s great. I think I inhaled my crepes whole. So come ready to rock and ready to eat!
Rockin’ the Cradle #3 will be on March 29th from 1-3pm. The performers are Shelby Lamb and Dirty Dishes. As usual, it’s PWYC (remembering that Musicians need to eat too;) We try really hard to have the sound low enough for new babies, and it is an all ages event – ages 0-1000. There will be a change table and a musical craft to do. Here’s the poster. Let me know if you have any questions or comments, or if you would like some fliers/ posters to put up.
#2 was a success too! Thanks so much to our performers, Bry Webb and Positive Thinking Seminar (Purplater). Thanks to Maureen for manning the shaker table again. Thanks to the Tranzac for having us and cleaning up all the macaroni. Thank you to every one who came!
Sorry about the brunch mix-up. I’ll keep you updates about next month. Shelby Lamb and Dirty Dishes will be playing. I will post the poster tomorrow as well as photos and video from both Rockin’ the Cradle #1 and 2.
