Virtual Bands on the Bay: Lou Moore
June 8, 2021 @ 4:00 pmFree
While it is our annual tradition to host regional performers on our bayside patio from June to August, this summer during Phase One and Two of Ontario’s Roadmap to Reopening we’ll be bringing the performers to you right in the comfort of your own home… virtually! Join us on Tuesday evenings this summer and we’ll be broadcasting some sweet tunes via Facebook and YouTube.
Virtual shows will be broadcast at 4pm (and available at any time afterwards) and when we are able to host live shows later in the summer during Phase Three they will be held at 7pm at The Stockey Centre, our weekly update emails (you can sign up for them here) and this website will include where and when each concert is occurring.
Tuesday June 8 at 4pm – Virtual Show
At four years of age my mom and dad had a country band and I started studying guitar with them. Although I learned a lot of songs from my parents my father insisted I study music and learn to read. By the age of twelve I had started to teach guitar and music performance lessons. I honed a lot of my skills in the bluegrass music genre playing with the band Big Redd Ford where we were introduced to people like Jerry Douglas and Ricky Skaggs. I also played for a number of years with The Good Brothers. I was a side man for hire for many years as well and played with people like Tommy Hunter, Gord and Audie Henry, Larry Mattson, Bill Johnson and other country bands throughout Ontario. For the past twenty years I had played consistently every Thursday night at local bars, (presently Colonel Mustard’s in Newmarket), where I have been very fortunate to enjoy the company of some of the best musicians in the business. Players like Jimmy Bowskill, Wendell Ferguson, Steve Piticco, Michael Francis, Jerome Godboo, Roly Platt, Carlos Del Junco, Linsey and Tyler Beckett, John Showman, Dan Howlett, John P. Allen, Graham Young, Mike Bowell and many others are regular guests.
We’ve got so many more great names upcoming this season! Stay tuned to our website for the next performer’s information!
