Windsor/Detroit Live Music: Great Bloomers (Toronto) w/ Doug Hoyer (Edmonton) & Trevor Malcolm Jazz Trio with Chad Howson

Saturday May 9th, we have a feel-good night that I have been looking forward to for weeks.
The style of music is certainly unusual, for what we usually have, with each performer.

What do I mean?
Read these quotes and click these links and find out.

From Great Bloomers myspace:
“Playing rollickin' piano-based country-tinged college rock, Great Bloomers astound with subtlety - delicious hooks, stunning harmonies, expert musicianship, songwriting well beyond their years and a wry sense of humour that says we're good and we know it, but we appreciate you coming, so thanks.” I Heart Music

From CBC Radio 3:
"Doug Hoyer writes quirky pop & rock songs about the simple things in life. Mostly.

Whether by himself or with his backing band, he switches around between guitar, ukulele and sometimes accordion to tell his tales through song.

His first ep was entitled "Tattoo", and charted in many college stations across Canada. The always entertaining Henri "Faberge" Fletcher was kind enough to lend his trumpet and french horn skills to the recording.

His new ep, "Songs from Grand Marquee" will be released April 25th, 2008.

Years ago in the summer of 2003 Doug was a cast member on the CBC reality "rockumentary" called "Rock Camp", a show that featured Joel Plaskett & Ian McGettigan (from Thrush Hermit), as well as many others.

Doug has shared the stage with many different bands, of all sorts of genres, but a few of them have been: Wax Mannequin, The Faunts, Mohawk Lodge, Jenny Omnichord, Torngat, Octoberman and Hills Like White Elephants. Doug Hoyer also plays bass in the Edmonton based band 'Illfit Outfit'."

And Trevor Malcolm...geez, what can one say about him?
He's not easily found online, to give you samples, but to put it lightly, he is one of the most gifted musicians in this town..EASILY.
He will play trumpet, piano, and sometimes both at the same time to get things rolling.
Chad Howson will be joining him in this show, as he is celebrating the opening of his art show that was hung earlier this week.

Come out, see some art, hear some art, and make some friends.
