The Lonely: Celebrating the Music of Roy Orbison

Thursday Feb. 08, 2018 - 7:30 p.m.
Moondance now has tickets on sale for The Lonely: Celebrating the Music of Roy Orbison at the Market Hall on Thursday February 8 at 7:30pm. The Lonely are a group of experienced musicians and performers who share a deep love and appreciation of the songs of Roy Orbison. The band approach the music with humble spirit and attempt to recreate the sensitivity and feel of the original recordings. Roy Orbison’s music defined a world unto itself, a true master of the romantic apocalypse we all dread. Although Roy is counted as a rock n roll pioneer, the structure and theme of his songs defy convention. Roy didn’t just sing beautifully, he sang broken heartedly. He has been described as timeless, bordering on the eccentric and within a hairs breadth of being weird.

Moondance now has tickets on sale for Bowie Lives (with special guests Broken Harmony) at the Market Hall on Saturday February 17 at 8pm. Bowie Lives returns to the Market Hall a year after the show’s debut in 2017. “Go ahead, be skeptical….then talk to me after he sings ‘Young Americans’! What a night!” says CHEX TV’s Teresa Kaszuba. Fans proclaim “Beyond Amazing!!” Join award winning vocalist Michael Bell and a band of master musicians as they present the music of David Bowie in a multi-media extravaganza. From the Spiders from Mars to the Scary Monster, Bell conjurs the vocal performances and the hits that span 4 decades. After David’s untimly passing in 2016, Bell was approached with offers to pay tribute to the artist that inspired him over the course of his own musical recording and stage career, and he couldn’t resist. “I was born to sing Bowie” states Bell. Don’t miss the return.

Mouthpiece by Quote Unquote Collective

Friday Feb. 23, 2018 - 8 p.m.
Moondance now has tickets on sale for Mouthpiece by Quote Unquote Collective from Toronto on Friday February 23 at the Market Hall at 8pm. In the two years since its creation, Mouthpiece has become an international hit. A winner of two Dora Mavor Moore Awards, it wowed critics and audiences at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Mouthpiece is a harrowing, humorous, and heart-wrenching journey into a woman’s psyche. Interweaving a cappella harmony, dissonance, text, and physicality, it follows one woman for one day, as she tries to find her voice. Two performers express the inner conflict that exists in her head: the push and the pull, the past and the present, progress and regression.

The Wooden Sky

Sunday Feb. 25, 2018 - 8 p.m.
Moondance now has tickets on sale for The Wooden Sky on Sunday February 25 at the Market Hall at 8pm. Swimming in Strange Waters, the title of The Wooden Sky’s fifth full-length album is an abridged quote from Frank Herbert’s 1965 sci-fi novel, Dune: “Survival is the ability to swim in strange water.” It’s a phrase that seems especially apt in 2017, as many of us are still reeling from the previous year. For Gavin Gardiner, the frontman of the Toronto-based indie rock band, the way to understand and reconcile these unknowns — from oil pipelines and refugee crises to his own family’s personal history— is through songwriting. The band (made up of Gardiner, multi-instrumentalists Simon Walker and Andrew Wyatt, violinist Edwin Huizinga and drummer Andrew Kekewich) started writing and recording demos in a small farmhouse in rural Quebec in January 2015, but then put them aside as they embarked on a year-long tour in support of their previous album, Let’s Be Ready. The resulting album is a sonic maelstrom that sees the band exploring unchartered waters, where textural psychedelia inspired by the Paisley Underground movement melds into quiet, acoustic cyclical guitar melodies. While Let’s Be Ready found the Wooden Sky writing a pure “rock and roll” album, Swimming in Strange Waters sees the band experimenting once again.

Downchild Blues Band

Friday Mar. 02, 2018 - 8 p.m.
Moondance now has tickets on sale for Downchild Blues Band at the Market Hall on Friday March 2 at 8pm. 
It’s tempting and not altogether far-fetched to apply an engine metaphor to the mighty Downchild, one of the planet’s foremost most fêted, longest-running blues outfits with quite possibly the best back story ever told. Roaring through bracing, high-octane performances since 1969, the band founded and continuously steered by harmonica and guitar ace Donnie “Mr. Downchild” Walsh is as vibrant today as when Dan Aykroyd and the late John Belushi were inspired by Downchild for their brilliant Blues Brothers venture back in the 1970s. The pair elevated Downchild’s “Shotgun Blues” and Walsh’s “(I Got Everything I Need) Almost” to smash status on their 1978 Briefcase Full of Blues record. Actually, the 2017 iteration of Downchild — with each member boasting a minimum of 20 years of service — might be the most electrifying yet. For proof, simply check out the sextet’s towering, lid-lifting, juke-joint jumping 18th studio album, Something I’ve Done, a bona fide group effort and a sonic highlight in a 50-year career spilling over with them.
