Danny Michel matinee show added.

Due to the overwhelming response to the Danny Michel concert on April 18 we have added a second show. This will be a matinee  on Sunday, April 19, 2015  at 1:30 p.m.

This is a super special show because 100% of the proceeds from the show will go to the Caye Caulker Ocean Academy in Belize. This is a school that is a huge part of Danny’s life and this show will give him a chance to share his inspiring story and music.

We in Avening know how important a place can be to a community and we want to help with this cause.

Tickets are $25 and available here or contact The Creemore Echo at 705-466-9906. Service fees apply to all credit and debit purchases.

If you need more info contact sara@creemore.com 705-466-9906

Springtime with Danny Michel – April 18, 2015

Imagine spring. Now imagine a show at the Avening Hall. They have a lot in common. They are both things we wait for with great anticipation. They are both things we want to happen sooner rather than later.

Now add to the vision a concert with Danny Michel at the Avening Hall on Saturday, April 18 at 8pm and you have conjured up a most hopeful  event and a happy thought to get you through some cold winter days.

Danny will be playing as part of a trio. Food and drink will be available starting at 7pm. Show will start at 8pm.

Tickets  $25 in advance available here
Or contact Sara at The Creemore Echo

Sunparlour Players – April 5, 2014

An ACC North Fave returns! 

Let’s welcome the warmth of spring with the return of the Sunparlour Players.

This band has been a hall favourite for quite some time. Here’s why – when we first started hosting shows and no one had ever heard of Avening and tickets were easy to come by – this band took a chance on our funny little hall in the cow pasture while other musicians just laughed at the thought of sold-out concerts in a hamlet of 30 people. We have been ardent fans and boosters of these guys ever since.

If you have seen SPPs you will know to get your tickets early, invite all your friends and be prepared for a night of music like no other.

For the rest of you – I know of late we have been booking some pretty big Can-con cats and that many of you are on this list because you are followers of those “famous” guys but let us tell you this duet will fill the hall with sounds more befitting of a 10-piece band with a jaw-dropping blend of the showmanship of Hawksley Workman, the hipness of Hayden and the bopping hooks of Joel Plaskett to create an Elliott Brood-like lid-hammering dance party. They may also do an AC/DC cover song worthy of some serious rural head banging.

Clearly our regard for this band goes beyond our normal acoustic amour – which is why we would love to see you there too.

Tickets are available $20 in advance online here
or by calling Sara at 705-466-9906 sara@creemore.com 
$25 at the door

Doors open at 7pm
Show at 8
Food available to purchase from Men with Knives.
Cash bar
All Ages welcome.
