Been very busy since the holidays with continuing and new projects.
Season 2 taping of The Sun Parlour Coffee House Sessions has begun with some great guest performers. Jody Raffoul, Andrew Taves, Max Marshall and Peter Light to mention just a few.
Dale's Friday Coffee House taping continues and we had a standing room only January show with some great performances so we should have no problem getting a couple of tv shows out of that. We are in reruns right now on Cogeco but should have new material airing in late March or early April through to the summer time.
And a new project is in early stages! Test taping and a concept short show edited for review by the producers. It looks good and we should be in production in mid March for airing on the Cogeco Community channel in Sept. 2017. It is untitled at the moment but when more info is available I'll let you know. It is essentially an interview show but there will be some great guests with notoriety across Canada.
That's it for now........
Sorry for not updating for a while! Been very busy with our projects and it's great to see that our work is not going un-noticed.
The Sun Parlour Sessions website is up and running!!!!!
Many thanks to Susan and Jan for their efforts in this area.
Welcome to Michelle Fortier to our team! Michelle has joined us to help promote the "Sessions" show. Michelle is an experienced publisist and runs her own business doing just that for many people in the music industry.
The "Sessions" shows seem to have a buzz around them and gathering a bit of a following.
Our team is hard at work making plans for season two as we wrap up our first season with episode 13, a sort of "best of season one" show, hosted by the entire team.
The next episode staring Crissi Chchrane will premiere on the Cogeco community channels December 19th at 10 pm. This is one episode you don't want to miss.
We continue to record Dale's Friday Coffee House and show that on the Cogeco channel also.
Also working on an off shoot featurette from the "Sessions" show. "Gear Talk"
These short episodes feature Dale Butler interviewing performers about their instruments and we have plans of doing reviews of new and vintage eqipment in our local music retail establisments. Look for this on the Sun Parlour Sessions website.
Stay tune for more great things to come!!!!
We're already starting to wind down our first season of The Sun Parlour Coffee House Sessions. It's been great fun and a great experience with some wonderful and talented singers and song writers!!
We've recorded 11 sessions and only have one more performance to capture in the next couple of weeks. And then our final episode will either be a "behind the scenes" type of show or possibly one were the crew gets a chance to pick their favorite performances this season. Or both?
Our website should be launching in the next couple of weeks and we have many exciting things planned for it. (sunparloursessions.com)
In the mean time we are still hard at work recording Dale's Friday Coffee House, and getting those shows ready for Cogeco.
Don forget to come out to a Friday Coffee House in Leamington at the Bank Theatre. And tune in to the Cogeco community channel for our shows. (You can find show times on this site.)
Happy Halloween to all!!!!!!!!
