GRACENOTES: Pride Warm Up at the Eton and Upcoming gigs

If you weren't at the Eton House Saturday night, where the heck were you? 

What a night... we had some VERY special guests up to sing with us. Heather Bambrick, Colina Phillips and Debbie Fleming  joined us for a few tunes. That stage was cookin'. Twelve women on the Eton stage..... packed with chick power. Thanks to all who came out and danced their a$$es off!

GRACENOTES: Tri Pride Kitchener and Pride Warm Up gig

What a blast! Grace had a great time in Kitchener at the Tri Pride event. It was great to get out of the city and bring our funk to our neighbours west of TO.

One of my fav moments was looking out at the crowd to see 4 of Kitchener's Finest in uniform clapping and dancing along to Uptown Funk! Mae was asked for her autograph by the cutest little girl, and we had some great dancers gittin' down. Thank you, Kitchener!

Thanks again to Elana Harte for inviting us to play the event along with her band, Stiletto Flats, Brave and Crazy and BACA. Elana joined us for a cooking version of Got To Be Real! You never know when we will have special guests up to sing with us..... Have a look at the Tri Pride pix below.

Speaking of special guests...last time at the Eton House, Heather Bambrick (Broadsway, Jazz FM) joined us for kickin version of Got To Be Real! Who will be there this Saturday? Please join us for our Pride Warm Up gig Sat June 13 at the Eton House! They have brought in more tables so there is room for all. There will be dancing, prizes and surprises!!! Last chance to see Grace this month! We will be looking for you.

 

Stay tuned for video clips from this gig..

GRACENOTES: Our First Blog Post!

Welcome to our first post! 

It has been a lot to get off the ground in a short amount of time, but all the hard work is worth it. Grace is very busy this summer!

We played a fantastic gig this past Saturday, a fundraiser for ovarian cancer, at Corus Quay. The people were wonderful and I have to send a shout out to our sound guy, Cory. He had to mix in a room with very high ceilings which contained mostly glass....a sound persons nightmare!

This Friday we are back at our fav haunt, the Eton House. It is always such a fun night and Jen, Eton's own promoter and server with a massive smile , will be there to make sure you don't go thirsty!

In June, we will be travelling to Kitchener to play Tri Pride at City Hall. Thanks to Elana Harte for asking us to share the bill with her wonderful bands!

July sees us playing in beautiful downtown Collingwood- a great place to be in the summer! We will also be heading out to the west end to do a gig at the Cadillac Lounge- a very cool west end club with a great patio! Grace will then be rounding out the month at the Beaches Jazz Fest.

We hope to catch you at one or all of our gigs! Keep your eye out for Grace t-shirts...they will be popping up in the near future and you know you will need one!

Stay funked....
