Event Description

“A MUSICAL WALK DOWN MEMORY LANE WITH DREW BURNS” TRIBUTE SHOW

This Wednesday, November 5, following the Memorial Service for Drew Burns, an evening “A Musical Walk Down Memory Lane with Drew Burns” Tribute Show will feature several of Drew’s favourite local acts at the Commodore Ballroom.

The performances will represent different eras of Drew’s career at the Commodore Ballroom, beginning with Teen Angel and the Rockin’ Rebels who performed at the Fifth Day Club which Drew operated out of the Ballroom in the late 60's and early 70's. The band will be re-uniting for a one time only performance in honour of Drew.

The early to late 70's was dominated by the blues in the Commodore, so we have assembled a Memory Lane Blues Band for the evening consisting of players who have worked for Drew many times over the years. The 80's are represented by Doug and The Slugs with a special cameo appearance by Joe Keithley of DOA. After Drew left the Commodore he continued to support local musicians around the city and three of his regular outings would be to see Jim Foster, The Bobcats, and Billy Dixon's Soul Train Express, all of whom will perform in the tribute.

Terry David Mulligan and “Jolly” John Tanner will emcee the event, with additional special guests paying tribute or performing short sets.

Admission is free; however, advanced registration is recommended.

“A Musical Walk Down Memory Lane with Drew Burns” Tribute Show is a companion event to the afternoon Memorial Service that will take place at the Commodore Ballroom between 2pm - 5pm, emceed by Red Robinson.
