A few months ago, Brett Klassen contacted us about hosting a release for his new hip-hop album, Hopes Hotel. I had never heard of his 6 piece hip-hop act before, and was delighted to discover his track, Elevator, gave a shout out to Homegrown Hamilton in it’s second verse. After hearing the song, I immediately gave him the gig.
Two nights ago I heard Hopes Hotel in it’s entirety and I was blown away. Klassen has crafted a concept album that masterfully encapsulates the experience of living in downtown Hamilton. The album is an autobiographical commentary dealing with the issues of living in an apartment complex on John Street North. Having spent three years living at John and Barton myself, I found it easy to identify with the subject matter. The lyrics are honest, empathetic, insightful and uplifting. The album is a pleasure to listen to.
If you’re a fan of socially conscious hip-hop, you owe it to yourself to check out the album release of Hopes Hotel this SATURDAY AUGUST 30th at Homegrown Hamilton. Brett will be performing with his live band, Les Czars, which includes saxophone, drums, guitar, upright bass and keys.
Join us each Thursday for an event like no other. Drummer extraordinaire, Dave Gould, hosts an evening filled with an ever changing cast of singers, songwriters and musicians.
The OPEN MIC runs from 8PM - 10:30PM. Perform solo or invite Dave to join in on the drum kit.
At 10:30PM the jam begins. Are you a drummer, guitarist or bassist? Instruments and amplifiers are provided. Every week new music is created on the spot, and you’re invited to join in. All styles are welcome.
Toadhouse is one of our favourite local jam bands. Their jams blend elements of funk, rock and progressive rock. A must see for fans of Phish and The Grateful Dead. Toadhouse will be joined by Toronto’s New Stems and Hamilton’s Hollingshead Armstrong And Lehmann. Click the link to watch a video of Toadhouse.
Come visit us for lunch after the Around The Bay Road Race.
This Friday night: NO COVER - An open stage for conscious hip hop freestyle
Crossing every genre from reggae to rock, pop to punk and ska to swing. Small Town get up wow audiences with their unusual cohesiveness and unique four horn set up. They have opened for The Snips, Dodger, Sound One and Mustard Plug.
In 2013 The Brad Cheeseman Group won Instrumental Recording Of The Year at the Hamilton Music Awards. This is their first Hamilton gig in over a year. Join us for a night of exciting jazz/fusion.
Homegrown is proud to be featuring the works of Annette and Gail Green for the month of February. Art opening is during tonight’s Art Crawl.
Annette Green and her mother Gail Green are local fine artists. They have been working together since 2007, when Annette finished her degree in Political Theory, and Gail retired from Real Estate. Annette`s art blends abstract and surreal styles, while Gail has forged a distinctly Canadian style of impressionism.
This mother, daughter duo can be found gathering inspiration or painting on site at many of Hamilton`s Waterfalls and trails. You may even spot this pair walking their way on the side of the highway towards a sight. This pair of artists are committed to capturing the beauty of this place. Come share the experience, Feb. 14th at Homegrown Hamilton.
