If you don’t know about the Canadian Original Live Music Series being launched on Sunday, October 29, 2017 (from 5:00 PM to 10:00 PM), at Boston Manor in Burlington, then you have been living in a cave.
If that’s the case, then you need to change all that. But that’s okay, we are here to help.
That’s right, Robert J. Mayor, the founder and owner of soFXCanada, is unveiling this very unique and dynamic music series.
The theme for the launch is ‘the world under one roof,’ as Burlington is alive with arts, culture, diversity, passion and growth. This fundamental theme will be reflected in performances by an array of local musicians who have a distinct connection with the world in many aspects and who hail themselves as global citizens.
Paul Fitzgerald, author, publicist, journalist and talk show host with Salt & Pepper Media Inc. in Burlington, and James Spalding, TV Producer with YourTV, are also actively promoting and supporting the big event. The evening will all be captured on camera and online radio for a special news documentary being produced by Fitzgerald and Spalding collaboratively, along with Mayor and his organizers.
Mayor and his team anticipate that the event will draw in hundreds of Burlingtonians who have an appreciation for what drives Burlington as a city – music, arts, culture, and innovation.
“It’s going to be a night I hope everyone will remember forever,” says Mayor during an interview.
“The Canadian Original Live Music Series being launched will showcase local talent – all of whom have a deep connection with the world as we know it. Burlington has so much to celebrate on the arts and culture fronts and our launch will truly bring ‘the world under one roof.’”
Mayor plans to make the Canadian Original Live Music Series a monthly event to promote collaborations with the city and local talent who are writers who perform their own original songs and play cover songs as well.
Most importantly, Mayor has created a theme and a place to gather together, to band together as a network of lively citizens with multiple interests and passions.
