Kenny G and his band brought their Miracles Holiday & Hits Tour to Ottawa’s National Arts Centre on Wednesday night. Billed as a night filled with festive spirit and contemporary classics, the newly renovated NAC was all decked out for the holidays. Decorations included an enormous Christmas tree, giant nutcrackers, and the largest rocking chair this side of the Rideau canal.
Every Friday night the National Arts Center’s revitalized Fourth Stage plays host to emerging artists from across Canada for ‘Friday’s at the Fourth’. The casual atmosphere of this new stage lends itself well to artists of all genres. This past Friday a sold out crowd was beyond entertained by the wildly talented Rebecca Noelle and opener Kayla Diamond.
The legendary Canadian jazz singer and pianist Diana Krall made a stop in Ottawa on her Turn up the Quiet 2017-18 world tour. Her new album, of the same name, celebrates jazz and the great american songbook and this tour is providing fans with the opportunity to sing along to some of her sultry versions of classics such as L-O-V-E and Isn’t it Romantic.
Night two of the Grey Cup Festival concert series was set to highlight a pair of Alternative bands, Reuben and the Dark and Sloan, and a fun party band out of Toronto, Dwayne Gretzky, that was intended to warm up the crowd…but in the end it would be Gretzky that would steal the ball and take it all the way to the end for the night winning touchdown.
November 18, Samantha Martin and Delta Sugar played the NAC Fourth Stage, and the intimate setting leant itself to a great show for the 10 piece band. Samantha is exploring a new sound, taking Delta Sugar from a 5 piece to a 10 piece, and it works! Samantha’s roots/soul/blues sound has just been taken up a couple of notches.
Canada’s King of the rumba flamenco Jesse Cook took centre stage at the National Arts Centre’s Southam Hall on Tuesday night delivering a show not soon to be forgotten. This was my first experience seeing Jesse live and it didn’t take more than one song to solidify his spot on my list of best live performances I’d seen this year.
We’ve told you about the incredible concert series slated for this year’s Grey Cup Festival in Ottawa but wait, there’s more. What’s a Grey Cup festival without parties? Well with 9 teams in the Canadian Football League from all across Canada it’s fitting that there’s a party for everyone.
