About Elliott Brood

Elliott Brood’s songs have travelled the glory of history for nearly a decade. With the stomp and thrash of their early albums, Elliott Brood carved their niche drawing from history and memory. With Keeper, the band’s seventh album, the sound explores loyalty, longevity and the strength of conviction tested over time.  

From the Polaris Music Prize short-listed breakout album Mountain Meadows to the JUNO Award-winning Days Into Years, the well-travelled trio of Mark Sasso, Casey Laforet and Stephen Pitkin have created a body of work that is at once meticulous and boisterous, substantial and entertaining. 

About Social Line Dancing

From Calgary, Carolyn Jurek has been a line dance instructor for over two decades. Now living and teaching in Toronto, nothing makes her happier than sharing the love of this fantastic form of dance, which is suitable for all ages and abilities.

About Good Enough Karaoke

For a decade, Tim McCready and Good Enough Live Karaoke have been making rock ’n’ roll dreams of singing in a band come true. They have performed more than 1,100 shows together, establishing themselves as Toronto’s premiere live karaoke band. With 350 songs in their repertoire, from pop, classic rock and R&B to punk and metal, they’ve got something for everyone!
