Last month the CMAO launched a contest in conjunction with Brett Kissel and Invictus Entertainment that would give a number of lucky Ontario musicians the opportunity to open for Brett on his upcoming ‘Ice, Snow and 30 Below Tour’. There were easily hundreds, if not thousands of entries from prospective artists itching for the opportunity to perform with Brett. Now we know who it will be….
Each performer will have a 20 minute opening slot during which they will perform an acoustic solo, duo or trio.
The lucky winners are…
January 12, 2017 Kiwanis Community Theatre Sault St Marie, ON – Kansas Stone
January 13, 2017 Fraser Auditorium Sudbury, ON – Cory Marquardt
January 17, 2017 Chrysler Theatre Windsor, ON – Buck Twenty
January 20, 2017 Georgian Theatre Barrie, ON – Marshall Dane and The Small Town Girls
January 21, 2017 Empire Theatre Belleville, ON – Runaway Angel
January 22, 2017 Danforth Music Hall Toronto, ON – The Abrams
