A Monday night alternative to watching the war - my open stage!
- If you're fed up watching the War Channel and need a great music
break, I have just the alternative: my 8 p.m. - 2 a.m. acoustic open
stage at Blues on Bellair!
This week's showcase guest for March 24 is a fine piano player and
soulful singer/songwriter, Laura Fernandez. She'll charm and soothe
you, while also giving you something to think about. And who knows
what surprise guests will pop by to play?
We have a house guitar, a Hammond C3, full PA, DJ 17 spinning local
songwriters' tracks in between live acts, lovely Rachel on the bar,
great food and drink at special Monday prices (just $5 for a domestic
pint Mondays!) and a wonderful vibe going.
The club is located at 25 Bellair St., a block north of the Bellair
St. exit from the Bay St. subway station and there's free street
parking out front and a $5 flat fee lot half a block from the club.

Laura Fernandez could be the queen of music....
Most missed a stellar performance by this lady last night at 17's
Monday Night @ BoB.... Laura plays again at C'est What on May 29/03...
Do yourself a pleasure, go and catch her and her 4pc band, each member
bringing what appears to be a different genré to the mix.....
Just what the soul needed, sultry music, dished from a sexy spanish
piano playing woman.... ummmmm.... My nipples were still hard this
morning.... How bout you 17????
This is not to take away from the other performers that took to the
open stage, they were good... and some where better than good.... But
Lauuuuurrrraaaa..... baby your smile has me walking into door
- She was great John and this was my first time I got I got to watch her
perform. I've known Laura for quite a few years on the jam circuit but
last night she certainly put on a showcase which is something you don't
see in mainstream entertainment today. You can bet I'll be at C'est What
May 29th which should be a fantastic night of great music.
She may be down at Healeys for tonights Tuesdays jam.
- I was thoroughly impressed with her music, I'm not sure how
many people were expecting her to play with a full band but I
think that was made the set so impressive. Max, did you end up
finding someone to back you up? I keep meaning to do it but you
seem to catch me when I either have to leave early or don't have
a guitar on me. We'll do it sometime soon.
- Frank Wilks backed me on a couple of songs which I did in my usual
upbeat temple numbers. Next Monday you can bet you can back me on a
couple of tunes. Should be a fun accoustic showcase for next week.
