Our Indiegogo Campaign “Keep Homegrown Close To Home” ends at midnight on Thursday June 16th!
Visit: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/keep-homegrown-close-to-home to contribute.

Our landlord has refused to renew our lease this summer so we have to move out by August 1st. But don’t worry, we are embracing this as an opportunity to expand and improve. We are committed to maintaining our values of social and environmental responsibility and our support of local community organizations and not-for-profits. We found a new location right close by on the corner of John and King William st. The new building will enable us to have a bigger kitchen, larger capacity, fantastic patio, more wall space for art and a bigger stage for live music. It has been vacant for 9 years so we have a lot of hard work ahead of us and it will be expensive. Your contributions to our campaign allow us to continue to cultivate community in the downtown core!

THE SPOKES
(Nova Scotia/Toronto/Hamilton)

ARTHUR BULL guitar, vocals, harmonica
DAVID LEE double bass
BOB VESPAZIANI percussion
CHRIS PALMER guitar

The Spokes brings together a range of talents to play a distinctive brand of free, cosmic blues. Guitarist Arthur Bull, with his tiny hollow-bodied Gibson, hails from Digby Neck, Nova Scotia, and has played with such luminaries as Roscoe Mitchell, the Bill Smith Ensemble, poet Paul Dutton and legendary British guitarist Mike Cooper. Percussionist Bob Vespaziani is active in both the Blues and Improvisational music scenes in Canada, playing with Snake Oil Johnson, Julian Fauth and Taki Oto. Bassist David Lee, familiar to Hamilton audiences from his work with Gary Barwin and his trio with Chris Palmer and Connor Bennett, also has a long musical resume, including work with such musicians as Al Neil, Joe McPhee and Leo Smith. Their special guest for these Hamilton performances will be local guitar whiz Chris Palmer.

THOMSON/OSWALD/GROSSMAN
(Montreal/Toronto/Guelph)

SCOTT THOMSON trombone
JOHN OSWALD alto saxophone
BEN GROSSMAN hurdy gurdy

John Oswald (alto saxophone) and our Listening Artist in Residence Scott Thomson (trombone) have been playing together since about 2001, most often at first in John’s living room and then in Scott’s ‘living room’ venue, Somewhere There (2007-10). The name JOUST is a fun little conceit that, at some point, they started using as a group-name for listings, a poster, or something else. JOUST almost never performs as a duo these days, since public performances are usually opportunities to invite others to join them, especially the ‘likes’ of Germaine “The Glue” Liu, David Prentice, Michel F. Côté, Martin Tétreault, and David Lee. Duly added to this list of august talent is Ben Grossman, the Guelph-based wizard of contemporary vielle-à-roue (hurdy gurdy), who will join John and Scott for their Hamilton show, much to their –– and listeners’ –– great fortune.
