Live Musical Performances:

Friday May 31st

5:00 – 7:30
Cottage Brew
A five-piece cottage rock band from Niagara Falls, these local musicians travel across the province with their unique brand of Canadian music. From their Facebook page: “When buying a used car, punch the buttons on the radio. If all the stations are rock and roll, there’s a good change the transmission is shot.” – L. Lujack
With a quote like that, we think this could be a must attend live music experience!

8:30 – 11:00
Kiss Tribute by Sonic Boom
The rock n roll continues into the night with Sonic Boom and their signature Kiss Tribute act. Full dress and makeup is the name of the game when it comes to this quartet that covers with stunning accuracy!
