Every Monday. Hillbilly Night at the Wheel Club (3373 Cavendish, just below Sherbrooke W. in NDG). For more than 50 years, every Monday night in Montreal, a loyal gang of musicians and singers, amateur and professional, gather to play traditional country music (no song newer than 1969 permitted) for an appreciative audience. It’s an open mic session, so anyone is welcome to get up to sing and play, backed by the house band. Starts at 8pm, ends around 11pm – free admission. I’m one of the regulars and have been participating since the mid-1980s. Good fun, a lovely community too !
The monthly Rock and Roll Dance Party returns ! The hits of Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry, the Everly Brothers, Fats Domino, the Righteous Brothers, Buddy Holly, Roy Orbison, the Beatles, Animals, Rolling Stones, Temptations, Wilson Picket, Creedence Clearwater Revival and others !

WE’RE BACK !!! The 23rd Roots of Rock & Roll Concert - Oldies But Goodies from the 1960s & ’70s, will feature Craig Morrison & the Momentz, the retro party band Vintage Wine (Craig, Alex Nesrallah, Ryan Fleury, and Gary Sharkey), and special guests (Samantha Borgal, Laurena Segura, Gerry Kandestin, Terry Joe "Banjo" Rodrigues, Pat Loiselle, and Martin Boodman).
For tickets, contact Michael at email@example.com or buy them at Vintage Wine shows.
One popular aspect of these concerts is Morrison’s spoken introductions to the songs, putting them in context. Dr. Morrison has retired from Concordia University, where he taught 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). But he still active as a performer, lecturer, and teacher (for courses at the Cummings Centre and other institutions), and author (for an upcoming book on California rock in the psychedelic era).
We often have private shows booked, so these are good chances to see the band in a public setting.
