The on-stage ensemble, collectively called Craig Morrison & the Momentz, includes the popular retro party band Vintage Wine (Morrison, Gary Sharkey, Ryan Fleury, Alex Nesrallah), and special guests – guitarist George Bowser (of Bowser and Blue), pianist John McDiarmid, vocalists Samantha Borgal, Angela Galuppo, Melina Bikhazi, fiddler Jeff Deeprose, and multi-instrumentalists/ vocalists Terry Joe "Banjo" Rodrigues and Pat Loiselle – 12 performers in all.
One popular aspect of these concerts is Morrison’s spoken introductions to the songs, putting them in context. At Concordia University, Dr. Morrison teaches courses on the Beatles, Soul Music, Rock and Roll and Its Roots, Psychedelic Music, British Popular Music, and regional styles (in a course called Musical History Tour).
Tickets are $18 (students), $25 (seniors), $30 (regular), and can be purchased without service charge at Vintage Wine performances (see craigmorrison.com), or via Michael Cooper at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Fans of Vintage Wine will have seen all of these players sitting in at various time with Vintage Wine, but for this show we’ll go under the name Roots Rockin’ Rollin’ Revue.
