We're going to start the night with an amazing classical guitarist, Daniel Karrasch followed up by Montreal's finest duo Sin and Swoon (Michelle Tompkins and Mike O'Brien)!

GRUMPY’S CHICK PICKIN’ MONDAYS 1242 Bishop Street http://chickpickin.wix.com/home http://www.facebook.com/ChickPickinMondays 
Lundi le 12 decembre, 21h30 Host: Aly Marguerite & Old Time Honey; Guest: Roxanne Potvin. The Beatles made her want to write songs, the Blues made her want to rock the guitar, so she did that for a while, got a record deal, moved to Toronto, toured Canada, Europe and a bit of the US, got to meet and play with some of her heroes (!!).  Few years later, moved to Montreal to write songs.  Still doing that.  Still rocking out occasionally too.  She's working on her fifth album.
Lundi le 19 decembre 21h30 Aly Marguerite & Old Time Honey; Christmakuh!!!! Christmakuh, songs, stories and tradions in a multi-ethnic celebration of latkas and Chinese food, oh and covers of Shaggy.
Lundi le 9 janvier Host: Aly Marguerite & Old Time Honey; Guest: Catriona Sturton sings like an angel, plays like a beast.  After learning to file harmonica reeds in a back alley, Catriona toured Canada as the bassist for Halifax teen-rockers, Plumtree (whose song, Scott Pilgrim, inspired the cult-favourite book and movie of the same name).  She’s played in Europe with Italian harmonica wizards, traveled with a Hiroshima-based garage rock band, was a guest on The Price is Right and has been to more places in remote Canada than most people ever get to.  In the next few months you can find her on tours of the United States, playing with some of the country’s best harmonica players, The East Coast of Canada, and Ontario with The Noisy Locomotive.
Lundi le 16 janvier, 21h30 Host: Aly Marguerite & Old Time Honey; Guest: Effy Silver is a jazz influenced alternative acoustic artist from Toronto, Ontario. With music described as a cross between Amy whinhouse and Daniel Ceaser, her smooth sound will leave you forgetting where you parked the car.

AQUARIUM CAFE BAR 2923 Masson, Montreal Qc http://www.aquariumcafebar.ca/ 
Vendredi 16 décembre 2016 Hommage à Rick L. Blues: L'événement s'organise doucement! Les détails à venir... Rick a souvent décrit l'Aquarium Café-Bar comme étant son bureau. Il s'y sentait comme à la maison. La date du 16 Décembre lui était réservé et ses amis musiciens tenaient à respecter ses derniers engagements. C'est pourquoi Henri Breton et ses amis jouerons en remplacement de Rick L.Blues. Ce ne sera pas annoncé comme étant un hommage mais ce sera pour tous un premier spectacle sans Rick. Égoïste direz-vous? Pas du tout... Nous avons besoin de ce moment intime là où Rick se sentait à la maison. Ceci étant dit, les portes de la maison seront ouvertes à tous et puisque c'est une petite place, vous devriez considérer réserver avant de vous y rendre. https://www.facebook.com/events/206182279838232/
