“I am thrilled with the eclectic and hugely entertaining lineup we have booked for this year’s Hootenanny on Hunter,” says Terry Guiel, DBIA Executive Director. “We were deeply saddened along with the entire community by the sudden passing of Jonathan Hall earlier this year. Jon started the Hootenanny and organized it for seven years. On Aug. 10 you’ll see a hugely talented and dynamic performance from The Jonny Trash Super Group.”
The Jonny Trash Super Group will be a surprise collective of various musicians connected with the late Jonathan Hall. Known endearingly by his friends as Johnny Trash, this group will pay tribute to their friend who passed away suddenly on March 22, 2019 at the age of 44.
“Jonny was all about getting stage time for local artists and bringing in bands from out of town that maybe you hadn’t heard before,” says long-time friend Mike Judson. “Moving forward with this event I think Jonny would love to see a continued effort being put into choosing great local artists to grace the Hunter Street stage. He’d want the organizers to take a chance on something weird and outside of the norm and give people an experience they were not expecting.”
Hootenanny runs from noon to 11 pm on Hunter Street West between George and Aylmer streets. Admission is free. Last year Hootenanny was given an “A” rating in the 2018 Canadian Festival Report Card for its inclusive lineup.
Stacey Kay was a finalist on America’s Got Talent, won the Canadian Songwriters Award for best Adult Contemporary/Pop song of 2018 with “Weight On My Shoulders,” and gained recognition with a spontaneous performance of one of Busta Rhymes’ fastest raps in a South Carolina Walgreens that went viral with over 40 million views.
The Dreamboats bring back good old-fashioned rock ‘n’ roll with a sound that is equal parts Chuck Berry and The Wonders. This quartet from Mississauga delivers a high-energy, nostalgic show that has audiences dancing and singing.
“Shorelines Casino Peterborough is proud of sponsoring the Hootenanny on Hunter event for the second year in a row,” says Bryan Buchanan, General Manager of Shorelines Casinos. “I would encourage all to come and experience an amazing event that is filled with excitement, entertainment and great food, but most importantly take part in a celebration that highlights the great energy of our thriving community.”
