Friday night Barrymore’s Music Hall filled up with Canadian music lovers for the Megaphono Juno Concert Series, which included a whole collection of incredible Canadian talents, we were there to catch all the action.
Artists like Ottawa’s Monkeyjunk and Atherton brought the funk, blues and dance beats, while Canadian music legends like Jim Bryson brought humour and mainstream rock appeal to the concert hall stage.
Jim did his best to keep from getting too political as the event was a government sponsored evening program, but did make an effort to inject a societal humour wherever possible.
Performances by artists such as Jeremy Fisher and Kelle Matson were also standouts for the evening. Kelle’s unique rendition of Canadian hip-hop mega-star Drake’s smash-hit “Hotline Bling” was one of the evening’s stand-out and most unique cover song renditions.
Barrymore’s is a great venue with an outstanding sound and atmosphere. And the shawarma-platter was a nice touch.
