Since Hamilton is slowly becoming the City of Music and we try to present many different styles, at our Hamilton location on Saturday, November 11 we have our second country artist in nine years. We are pleased to welcome Chelsea Crites to the stage. This rising country sensation has been gracing stages all over the Niagara region and the Greater Hamilton Area. She knows not only how to sing but how to entertain. She blends R&B, Rock, Pop, and Country into her own sound. If you love artists such as Shania Twain and Faith Hill you’ll love Chelsea Crites. From a young age she took part in singing competitions and talent contests and was performing professionally at the age of thirteen. Starting out in Port Colborne she has gone on to perform around Canada and the U.S. taking residence in Nashville for a short period as a house singer at Tootsies. Chelsea has been using her talents to help those in need by showcasing for the Autism Fundraiser, Cancer Awareness fundraiser, and Adults with Disabilities. Don’t miss this rising country star!
On Saturday, November 18 we welcome “The Shots“, a new band to the Halton music scene. They are lively, upbeat and very tight, offering loved cover tunes and fresh originals designed to make you sit up and take notice. These young stars love engaging the audience and having a good time!
Lead singer Vanessa d’Souza and her brother, Ashley d’Souza on drums and keyboard, are the core and backbone of the group. Their enthusiasm is infectious and it radiates through the rest of the band. From an audience perspective, you can’t help but want to join in their fun. Their confidence and skill level are things rarely seen in young groups. Come out to see them and you can say “I saw them when they first started out”.
Music lessons are now underway in Milton at the Milton Tutoring Centre! Find out details by visiting our revamped website:http://acousticblendcafe.com/
