We're starting earlier from now on! I know it's getting harder and harder for many of us to stay up late, so we've pushed our Saturday shows ahead to 9:30 pm. Which just gives you enough time to have dinner, get the kids to bed, pick up the baby sitter and head on down the Ank for some great live music...
What: Niagara Rhythm Section's Saturday Night "MUSICAL IMPROV" Series
This week's featured guest: SAT. NOVEMBER 3RD, MARK RUTHERFORD
Where: The Anchorage, 186 Ricardo St. Niagara-on-the-Lake, 905-468-2141
When: every Saturday night - 9:30 pm - no cover
Penner's old buddy, Mark Rutherford, began his music career during the fertile '60s music scene in Winnipeg, gaining experience as a composer and bandleader through the '70s . This culminated in a move to Toronto in 1976 as Dianne Heatherington's Musical Director.
For the next 15 years, he toured with Dinah Christie, Buffy Ste. Marie, Louise Pitre, and numerous Toronto-based bands, playing concerts, stage shows and other gigs across Canada, as well as in Detroit, New York, Los Angeles, Europe and the Middle East. Though Mark is comfortable in a variety of musical styles, his first love is jazz and blues. Besides Mark's newest role as a performing member of the Groove Project, he has also been leading the Mark Rutherford Quartet and focusing on developing his award-winning compositions.
It was a treat to have Mark join us last time and we're looking forward to playing some tunes with him again on Saturday.
Coming Dec 8th!
Celebrating our 4th anniversary at the Anchorage, we're proud to release Live @ the Ank, Volume 1.0, a live CD compilation recording of the NRS and our various guests over the last 4 years. For more info: www.stevegoldberger.com/shedrecords.html
