I’m writing to let you know that “Born To It” – the documentary I made about independent musicians – is finally coming out on DVD. To help launch it into the world, I’m throwing a party – a release concert on Wednesday, September 19th at the Underground in the Drake Hotel. The show will be performances by all five of the musicians in the film – Ron Hawkins, Stephen Stanley, Wayne Petti, Alun Piggins and Elissa Mielke.
If you were at the film’s premiere at the Royal theatre back in 2009, the concert afterwards was spectacular, and I can’t wait to get the old band back together!
David Ray Alexander (or as you may know him, the guy on the traps) will be showcasing his work at The Artist Project – March 1-4 at the Queen Elizabeth Building, Exhibition Place in Toronto. Visit him at booth 523.
Our Stephen Stanley will be on Hockey Night in Canada’s Game Day on CBC TV 5-6 PM EST on Feb 4. That last sentence may need to simplify its description of time-keeping to win most improved timekeeper next year… but regardless, check it out.
And enjoy watching Stephen with the Bidiniband in his tribute to Dave Keon “Fourteen and Me”
