Where: The Chateau Lafayette
Time: 4:00pm to 8:00pm
It may not be new or different; the Lucky Ron Show is pretty status quo. But once in a while, something happens that is bigger than the show itself. It’s emotional on a national scale. When a legend is lost, the country mourns. For Canada, losing Stompin’ Tom Connors was a bag of mixed feelings – the happiness his songs brought to us, the memories his melodies created, and the ultimate sadness that comes along with the loss of an icon. For the Laff, our regulars, and especially to Lucky Ron, the passing of Stompin’ Tom brought forth a renewed community of music lovers and a determination to never let the melody fade away. Saturday, March 8th, 2014 will bring a change to the show, for one night only, at the Chateau Lafayette. To honor the late, great, Stompin’ Tom, during the second set of the show, we will open our stage to musical impersonators of the one and only. Those that embody the persona, the talent, and the musical integrity required to perform for a full house will be granted a guitar from Lucky Ron, and the stage to showcase their performance.
Before the Lucky Ron Show kicks off, we will feature a special presentation. After having his world rocked by the sudden suicide of his daughter, project leader Larry Pegg decided it was time to raise awareness for mental health in young people, and he chose hockey as a metaphor for it. A group of people then got together to create the Hockey Project (
www.thehockeyproject.ca). He gathered Lucky Ron, the students at the Canadian International Hockey Academy in Rockland, Ont., and supporters of the D.I.F.D. campaign for Mental Health Awareness. Together, they made the video titled “Don’t Stop Stompin’”. We will be featuring the music video at the beginning of the Lucky Ron Show – around 4:30pm. During the show, we will be selling mini cupcakes for $1 each, with all proceeds going to support D.I.F.D. A big Thank You to Cakes on St. Philippe for their donation in part to support this great cause.
We would like to extend to you an invitation to join us for this fun day filled with canadiana and country music, and a special tribute to a beloved icon, Stompin’ Tom Connors.
