It's been quite a while since our pals Scott & Simon have joined us at the Ank. These energetic local popsters always please, with a great variety of familiar tunes and wonderful vocals. It should be fun as always. See you there.

Coming this fall: "Live @ the Ank", a live 2-CD compilation recording of the NRS and our various guests over the last 2 years.

Other upcoming dates of note:

Sept 8th- NRS with Tony Springer at the South Side Shuffle, Port Credit -

Sept 15th (sunrise to sunset) - Penner's drum festival: the 2nd annual, Drums Along the Niagara -

Noon - sunset @ Navy Hall 305 Ricardo Street, Niagara-on-the-Lake. Here's the line-up:

Rick Gratton @ 1pm - Drum set clinic ($10)

Ft. George Fife and Drum Corps. @ 2:30 pm - Rudimental workshop

Heather Jones @ 3:30 pm - Yoga for drummers

Jeff Salem @ 4:30 pm - Hand drum clinic ($10)

As usual, Niagara's own Drumming Fools will perform. There'll be lots of good eats this year as well as some crafts people, and naturally, a drum circle. One lucky attendee to the Rick Gratton workshop will be walking away with a Pearl snare drum. There's also lots of other cool giveaways including a Sabian cymbal. And, last but not least, wine by the glass from the best winery in Niagara...MARYNISSEN ESTATES.
