FOREVER SEGER, creates the dynamic journey through the timeless music of Bob Seger featuring lead singer, Kevin Reid.

St. Francis

Molly Johnson
Molly Johnson’s v oice evokes the aura of dark, smoky nightclubs of a bygone era. Like the woman behind it, it is a voice filled with humour, joy, surprise, sassiness, and of course, love. Known as one of Canada’s greatest voices, this award-winning jazz vocalist is a mother, singer/songwriter, artist and philanthropist, who just released her highly anticipated new album, “Meaning to Tell Ya”. It’s much more than jazz…it’s funk, it’s soul, it’s groove!
Tickets for this Live Stream event are only $20 and can be purchased from The Oakville Centre by clicking HERE. Don’t forget to type AJAX for the Pre-sale Code.

Presented by: Blackrose Entertainment
It becomes abundantly clear, early in the performance, that the BLUSHING BRIDES are something exceedingly special and excessively unique in an industry of rampant mediocrity, permeated with bands aspiring to harness the excitement only the Rolling Stones could previously deliver.
