Join us for an incredible evening music! Freddy Vette, one of central Ontario's favourite rock 'n roll singers, will be playing with The Commodores, Canada's original big swing band. And in Freddy's backyard, too!

The Quinte King of Rock and Roll, Freddy has been gracing the stages of Ontario and beyond for years with his own band, Freddy Vette and The Flames. He's also been rocking' the airwaves at 800 CJBQ radio. Now, he'll be bringing down the house with Canada's oldest continuously-operating big swing band!

Nearing their 100th year (coming up in 2027!), the Commodores are at the height of their power. The seventeen musicians, some of the finest between Toronto and Ottawa, include Grammy and JUNO winners/nominees. They're not just the big swing band of the World War Two era anymore. The music is arranged entirely by Brian Barlow, percussionist in the Grammy-winning Rob McConnell & the Boss Brass in the 80s. Brian also drums with the Commodores in this show. The two genres might seem an odd fit, but rock'n roll did grow out of the big band era. And in the hands of one of Canada's greatest big band arrangers, the music goes together as if it should never have been separated. 

Pre-pandemic, the band played to very good audiences at Belleville's Empire Theatre, the Capitol Theatre in Port Hope, and the Brockville Arts Centre. In 2017, the Commodores played at the dance pavilion in Tweed's Victoria Park for the Kiwanis Club's anniversary. They are so excited to be returning to Hastings County!

Don't miss the music of Elvis, The Beatles, The Four Seasons, Buddy Holly, Jerry Lee Lewis, like you've never heard it before! Freddy says, “I am excited and honoured to perform with the longest running big band in the universe! It ROCKS!!!”
