VaughnCo Entertainment Presents
“RUMOURS”  The Ultimate Fleetwood Mac Tribute Show

opt-Rumours-Homepage-Show-Image-Summerside-2019

VaughnCo Entertainment is proud to present “Rumours” The Ultimate Fleetwood Mac Tribute Show based in Los Angeles, California.  The group recreates the legendary band in its youthful heyday from 1975-1979.

After finding huge success in Los Angeles, selling out their regular Roxy Theater performances month after month, the band moved from the world famous Sunset Strip to casinos, theaters, and clubs all over America.

The band is comprised of vocalist/artist/actor Jesika Miller, vocalist/film maker/photographer Rebecca Fishman, drummer/actor Ned Brower (Rooney, Mike Viola, Dawson’s Creek), guitarist/producer/engineer Taylor Locke (Rooney, Taylor Locke and the Roughs), and bassist/producer/engineer Nic Johns (Ben Lee, Margaret Cho, Room 8)

Rumours has meticulously put together a show that spares no detail.  From period accurate equipment and costumes to spot on characterizations and musical performances, “Rumours” takes you back to a time when music was still an unbridled cultural experience and bands weren’t afraid to put on a show.

Relive the rock and roll magic with the “Rumours” The Ultimate Fleetwood Mac Tribute Show!

So Here’s the Thing

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 27TH, 7:30 PM at the Harbourfront Theatre
All Seats: $50.50 (tax & fees included)

Derek-Edwards

DEREK EDWARDS – “So Here’s The Thing…”

“So Here’s the Thing …”  – A  breath of fresh air, finely honed and relentlessly funny! Take a break from the world and settle in for a seamless glide over life’s troubled waters. Like the canoeist seated deftly atop his life jacket, with whiskey and pot cookies sealed in airtight containers, Derek Edwards has left little to chance in this polished comedic adventure.

They say, “Brevity is the soul of wit.” And like in a Hollywood movie when the fleeing hero has to jump off a cliff into a waterfall, and the bad guys say, “Nobody could have survived THAT,” then they cut back to a single hand reaching out of the rushing water, finding purchase on a floating log. Derek is like that sodden log: an island of stability amidst the frenzy. An oft saturated and not entirely stable respite from life’s turmoil.

From Vegas to St. John’s, this Just For Laughs veteran is universally considered to be among the comic elite. Certainly his peers think so, as evidenced by the fact that he’s a four-time nominee, and winner of Best Standup Comic – Canadian Comedy Awards, as well as a multiple Gemini nominee for Best Performance in a Comedy. As Rick Mercer says, “Everyone knows Derek is the funniest man in Canada.”

Clearly the critics agree: “5 STARS – the funniest man on earth” – Winnipeg Free Press; “4 STARS – the crowd howled” – Victoria Times Colonist; “still the funniest man in Canada” – Toronto Sun; “Edwards reigns as the King of Canadian comedy” – Charlottetown Guardian; “Derek Edwards is hysterical” – Calgary Sun; “Edwards takes stand-up to next stage” – Georgia Straight; “the epitome of timing & storytelling” – Halifax Chronicle Herald; “the comedian’s comedian” – London Free Press.

“So Here’s the Thing …” – Derek Edwards’ new 90-minute stand-up comedy show, …a richly textured and enthralling ‘cut above,’ delivered with pace and authority by the consummate Canadian Comedian.

TRIBUTE TO STOMPIN’ TOM CONNORS – CHAD MATTHEWS
With special guest Kim Albert

Back by popular demand after a sold out performance in June 2019, this tribute to Canadian icon, the late Stompin’ Tom Connors, is second to none, paying homage to one of Canada’s most beloved folk heroes.

Headlining the show will be Island singer/actor Chad Matthews, who portrays Stompin’ Tom at a dinner theatre in Skinners Pond PEI at the Stompin’ Tom Centre and who has performed in Toronto with renowned tenor John McDermott and most recently contributed his acting skills to the feature film Still the Water shot on location on PEI and directed by Summerside’s own Susan Rodgers (to be released in 2020).

Joining Chad for this special night of Stompin’ Tom songs, stories and laughs, is his band comprised of well-known Island musicians including fiddle sensation/singer/songwriter/step dancer Keelin Wedge, along with guitar extraordinaire Daniel Drouin fresh off his Music PEI award win and recently chosen for the 2018 Canadian Songwriter’s Challenge. On drums will be seasoned singer Rodney Arsenault, whose 35+ years in the business have seen him on stage with the legendary Eddie Eastman, with Catherine MacLellan in her show “If It’s Alright With You” honouring her late father Gene MacLellan, and many others. Last but certainly not least, on bass guitar, another veteran of the local music scene, singer Wade Carragher.

Chad’s special guest, Kim Albert grew up on country music, making her first stage appearance at 5 years old, and she hasn’t slowed down since. An ECMA nominee, PEIMA nominee and CCMA showcase artist, Kim’s music has taken her across Canada and around the world, including showcases in the US, Dubai and the Virgin Islands. Here at home, she performs regularly with her band Kim Albert and Faces, and donates her time and talent to many telethons and charities, including Easter Seals, Christmas Daddies, Anderson House, Heart and Stroke Foundation, to name just a few, and local benefit concerts.

So much Prince Edward Island talent on the same stage for this memorable one night only event! Don’t miss out – get your tickets before they’re gone!

Thane Dunn’s
ELVIS – The Comeback King

Saturday, September 28, join World Champion Elvis tribute artist Thane Dunn and his Cadillac Kings as they recreate Elvis Presley’s now historic 1968 Comeback Special: Elvis, That’s the Way It Is.

In 1968, after years of making movies and being out of the public eye, Elvis set out to show the world that he was still at the top of his game. Clad in black leather, he performed all of his original songs in a raw, over-the-top performance which is now part of rock and roll history.

In tribute to this legendary performance, Thane Dunn & the Cadillac Kings made sure to cover all the bases. Dunn has mastered the raspy quality of Presley’s 1968 voice, and all of his stage attire is made from the exact patterns used by Presley. His black leather suit is a carbon copy of the original.

Get ready to hear Thane Dunn as Elvis, the Comeback King, singing everything from “Hound Dog” to “Mystery Train/Tiger Man” to “Blue Suede Shoes” and the monumental powerhouse song “If I Can Dream.”

You’ll find Dunn has the uncanny ability to transport his audience back in time. His portrayal of Elvis is eerily authentic, and his tribute work has received endorsements from several people who worked and performed with the real Elvis.

“Thane Dunn is the closest thing I’ve ever seen to Elvis and if you never saw Elvis you need to see Thane Dunn,” Bill Baize (member of the Stamps Quartet who performed with Elvis from 1971 – 1976).

For fans of Elvis, this is a fun, must-see show for the entire family.
