New Years Eve is a night when many people have solid plans and all too often it disappoints…so why not come for a guaranteed good time the night before? Enjoy some great food and drink, while catching two sets of music from two very different acts.

Vocalist Amy McConnell and trumpeter William Sperandei released their debut album "Stealing Genius" a month ago to critical acclaim. They will be joined by a killer band featuring Roberto Occhipinti on bass, Ben Riley on drums and William Sperandei on trumpet; all under the direction of pianist Mark Kieswetter. Their repertoire moves from '40s pop to '50s R&B to '60s musicals. Covering Elvis, Edith Piaf and Led Zeppelin, the unifying thread is their distinctive sound and approach to the music. Think k.d. lang meets Chris Boti... with edge!

Don Francks is an actor/singer/jazz musician. He began his career playing Toronto hotspots such as The Colonial Tavern, The Purple Onion and George's Spaghetti House before moving to New York to record and perform with guitar legend Lenny Breau. He was "discovered" by Jackie Gleason whose quote became the title of his seminal sixties recording called "No One In This World Is Like Don Francks". Although he has often played villains on shows such as Mission Impossible, The Wild Wild West, Man from U.N.C.L.E. and countless others, he is an affable, and thoroughly entertaining man on stage while singing his unique style of jazz. Don will be backed by a stellar band including Tony Quarrington (guitar), Richard Whiteman (Bass) Mark Kieswetter (piano) and Great Bob Scott (drums). Fellow actor/singer/dancer Roger Clown will also make an appearance as will the emcee for the night, Jaymz Bee.
