It’s been a busy summer for Acoustic Blend Café! Through the month of August, we provided live acoustic music for Art’s Milton at the Milton’s Farmer’s Market, and for Milton Downtown Business Improvement Association in the weekly event “Music On Main”. Coming up, we will be participating and performing in another Art’s Milton event called “Culture Days” on Sunday, October 1 at 10:30 AM at the First Ontario Arts Centre Milton. We are also pleased to announce as of September we are now offering music lessons in Milton at the Milton Tutoring Centre!
As the summer winds down, Acoustic Blend Café is getting ready to launch our 2017-2018 Coffeehouse Concert Series. We have two fantastic seasons lined up in both Hamilton and Milton, with seven shows in each location.
In Hamilton we are still in the fabulous auditorium at Melrose United Church, 86 Homewood Avenue. Our Milton location is back in the cozy and charming hall of the Milton Legion on 21 Charles Street. This year we are starting to offer advance tickets at a discount for both locations and can be purchased by visiting http://www.eventbrite.ca. Prices will be $12 in advance and $15 at the door which also includes complimentary coffee and tea. Our Milton location will continue to offer wine, beer and spirits for purchase.
Our first concert is in Hamilton on Saturday, September 16 as we welcome back the high energy of Sarah Smith, one of the hardest working musicians in Canada. Her new CD, entitled “11”, reflects on lessons learned and dreaming of a bright future. She plays nearly 300 shows per year in Canada, the U.S., and Europe. She has shared the stage with artists including Melissa Etheridge, Sass Jordan, Emm Gryner, Craig Cardiff, Joel Plaskett, David Wilcox, and many others. Whether it’s just her and her acoustic guitar or her full band, she is a mesmerizing performer. She will be playing as a trio for ABC. Check out her website http://www.sarahsmithmusic.com. For this show, we will have beer and wine available. Don’t miss this exciting high-energy show.
We are continuing to open the shows with an Open Mic, and spots are still available for September 16. If you would like to participate please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call/text 416-565-9490. Performers will have three songs or fifteen minutes, which ever comes first. We appreciate the courage of Open Mic performers and waive their admission fee.
It’s going to be an exciting season with more shows on the horizon! To find out more visit our website and Facebook page.
Acoustic Blend Cafe is about building community, supporting Canadian talent and businesses, and creating a space for camaraderie and friendship. We set up both the Hamilton and Milton locations to feel like a big living room with comfortable seating, small tables, table cloths, and candle light with light refreshments. All shows are very intimate.
