Grass Roots Music Festival
ROCKIN THE ROCK
I grew up in the greatest of Canadian Rock and Roll towns on the Hard Road, where local venues such as the Terrapin Tavern, Frosty Muggins, the Shamrock, Loyalist Hotel, the Penguin and the most noted purveyor of fine local talent the Manor regularly promoted and showcased the dedicated efforts of young musicians taking their wares from basements and garages to their appreciative fans. It was almost 35 years ago that you could see the likes of the Hip performing at local parties on a friday night, Moist at the toucan, the Headstones, the Raging Groovies at the Dukes, and Avril Lavigne at a local corn roast at Finkles Shore in Bath.
Well 2018, and an Idea somewhat borrowed and somewhat dreamed, I wanted to relive youth, buy back time, and bring back memories and create some new ones. This is 2019 and our second show that will do just that. Local Bands, local setting, and multi-generational. We ve seen the rise of so many talented groups so please come and be part of history as we usher in a new generation of music loving Kingstonians and support the dreams and talents of the next generation of performers!
2019 will see some surprising developments that are rather innovative!
our concert will be GREEN CLEAN!
Tri-Canadian Energy will be supplying all power for our onstage sound from the sun.
We are so grateful for their their involvemnt this year which will make us one of the first totally off grid sun energy powered music festivals in the world, and definitely in Kingston.
