Hot Hot August 2012 First Friday

Posted in: Concerts & Events, First Friday, Local Talent, News | No Comments

Could it get any hotter of an evening?  Yes it could thanks to the live music inside out outside of Cheeky Monkey. Facing the corner of Christina and Cromwell were the acoustic group Lambton MainStreet Players for the 2nd First Friday in a row.  They certainly do add a festive air to the monthly event by singing familiar songs old and new along with a few show tunes.  These young ladies talent for harmony is amazing not to mention how well they sing individually. If you missed them here, watch for them at other Lambton country area events during August.  They are well worth hearing. Inside Cheeky Monkey were two songstresses sharing the Red Carpet Stage.  16 year old Erin Innes was making her First Friday debut.  We feel very honoured and proud to be able to say you heard her here first.   We have lived across the street from Erin since ...

Daylight For Deadeyes were in Sarnia on Saturday July 28 to officially release their newest CD 'Summer' by playing at Cheeky Monkey in the afternoon followed by a show at Paddy Flaharty's in the evening. They are normally a 3 piece band consisting of Matt on guitar, Chris on drums and Andy on bass.  Sadly, Andy was not able to make it to Sarnia in time to play at Cheeky Monkey, so the 2 Gormley brothers played as a guitar duo.  Despite being one member less, they sounded amazing.  They sang several songs from the new CD as well as some of their fan favourites off previous releases. One of our grandson's is visiting and was thrilled to have the song 'The Sun' dedicated to him as was I when they dedicated another song to me called 'Give You My Heart'. All of their CD's are available to purchase at Cheeky Monkey.  To hear some tracks ...
