The Winnipeg Premiere of Gruber's Frankenstein!!, a pan-demonium for chansonnier and 13-person orchestra, with children's rhymes by HC Artmann.

Frankenstein!! has proved very popular in the 20 years since Gruber wrote it. The music touches all those areas of culture to which the texts refer. So pop music and hints of folk-song, Kurt Weill and Hanns Eisler are all thrown into the mix to fuse with Stravinskian neo-classicism and the long tradition of Viennese cabaret. The humour is black but quizzically genial, and Gruber's own performance is gleefully exuberant.
Todd Martin is the leader of the Dirty Catfish Brass Band, and performs regularly with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra and Ron Paley Big Band.

Lanikai mix the serene and the stormy, pulling together lush, sparkling alt-pop vibes and swaggering ‘60s soul groove to create a timeless, distinctive sound. Instead of breaking under current trends, they bend with them. Their first, self-titled offering distills this approach to its finest form: gorgeous, poignant pop music. 

Lanikai's personnel features producer Thomas D'Arcy (The Carnations, Small Sins) who also sings on “Stay a Little Longer”. Gregory Macdonald (Sloan) on keys. Shamus Currie (The Sheepdogs) on trombone, and a score of other players including Liam O'Neil (saxophone), Tim Iskierski (drums), Drew Jurecka (strings), and Tom Moffett (trumpet). Lanikai is the crystal clear sound of Marti Sarbit's purest voice.

Keycon will be holding an amazing costume Halloween social this year celebrating the upcoming 50th anniversary of Monty Python! Come out in your best Spanish Inquisition or maybe you are King Arthur or ones of the Knights of the Round Table. Maybe something from the Life of Brian is to your flavour. Or just bring out your best silly walk!

This is a charity social with half of proceeds going towards Sam Dubas and her highly specialized service dog Molly, a specialized seizure detection dog.

We will have great prizes for our raffle. There will be a costume contest with bonus points for coming in theme with the event. We will have Monty Python films running in the background and a live DJ spinning tunes to dance the night away. 

The hall is an amazing 2 level split with huge stage and dance floor. Guests can stay on the main level to dance or head on upstairs where they will find a second bar area and a slightly quieter atmosphere where you can play board games.
The site is not wheelchair accessible / lots of stairs
