Uli discovered his love for the electric guitar in 1968 and played his first concert later that same year at the age of 13 as lead guitarist for the band Blue Infinity. His early influences were The Beatles, The Cream with Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix. In the following years Uli played in a number of bands in Hanover while also studying classical guitar as well as the piano. His influences at that time were Andrés Segovia and Julian Bream, but also Flamenco guitarists like Manitas de Plata and the great violinist Yehudi Menuhin.

Uli was the first electric guitarist who had the vision and ability to significantly introduce a whole armoury of classical techniques towards the electric guitar, thus vastly expanding the hitherto somewhat limited technical vocabulary available on the guitar. Uli was the first guitar player in rock music who brought genuine classical know-how and virtuoso dexterity towards the instrument, a fact which has gained him the title of “father of neo-classical”.   http://www.ulijonroth.com/

Ben Caplan, with Geoff Berner
Ben Caplan is a songwriter, performer and entertainer. Ben explores themes of immigration, loss, darkness, love, sex, and God. Caplan is touring with a fresh batch of songs which were originally composed and compiled for a new musical play called Old Stock: A Refugee Love Story. The award winning play had its international debut at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival where it won top festival honours. The play has toured internationally including a seven-week run Off Broadway where it picked up a New York Times Critic's Pick, and six Drama Desk Award nominations. 

Caplan has been hitting the road to play concerts across Europe, Australia, and North America with a new lineup of musicians. The music from his theatre production has been turned into Caplan's third studio album.

Throwback Thursdays featuring The Duhks and Off The Wagon
World-beat to blues, urban-pop to old-timey, with wild-eyed invention, haunting traditionalism, and spine-rattling groove. GRAMMY and JUNO award winners, seeing The Duhks live is a spiritual experience. A syncopated bluesy banjo number seamlessly follows a Cajun two-step; an old-time jaunt nestles comfortably next to a gospel performance.

The Good Will Social Club & UMFM are proud to present Dilly Dally  w/ chastity

In the short time since they released their debut record, ‘Sore,’ Dilly Dally toured the world, only to nearly collapse and call it quits forever. Rising from the ashes with more power and conviction, the Toronto rockers’ new album is titled ‘Heaven,’ and it’s a fierce, fiery ode to optimism. Frontwoman Katie Monks describes the songs as coping mechanisms, a declaration of faith in the power of music and a burning reminder that we need not wait until the afterlife for things to get better. 

Monks and guitarist Liz Ball fleshed out the lineup with bassist Jimmy Tony and drummer Benjamin Reinhartz and floored critics on both sides of the Atlantic. 

Chastity is a world of its own from the mind of Brandon Williams. Chastity’s songs are charged with the ethos of archetypal youth on the fringe. It is an artifact of youth culture constantly working to form community, bridging isolation with collectivity. Visuals play a meaningful role with Williams using his penchant for crafting consistently sharp, challenging imagery to personalize the narratives running throughout all of Chastity’s work.

Glimpses of Humanity Exhibit Opening
Artists Lorena Ferguson and Jorja Loewen
Show opens on April 11 
Runs April 12 to April 23 - 12 to 5 pm
Opening night will include a live mallet percussion performance by Anaday Loft

What does it mean to be human?  And how does humanity as a whole impact the earth, its other inhabitants and the environment?  Human hands can change everything.  The question remains, will our final impact on the planet be for better or worse?

Glimpses of Humanity is a photography and mixed media art exhibit that explores the human aspect through paint, paper and photograph.  You will find signs of the human element in obvious ways – faces, hands, roads; as well as through more subtle clues of humanity’s presence – like an expansive view of nature reminding us of our role in keeping the earth. 

Lorena Ferguson is a mixed media artist who creates with whimsy and meaning. Her unique art pieces are filled with pieces of history, language, music and things that stir the spirit and imagination.

Jorja Loewen is a professional photographer with a passion for bringing out the beauty in everyone and everything.

KINKY BOOTS is Broadway’s huge-hearted, high-heeled hit! With songs by Grammy® and Tony® winning pop icon Cyndi Lauper, this joyous musical celebration is about the friendships we discover, and the belief that you can change the world when you change your mind. Inspired by true events, KINKY BOOTS takes you from a gentlemen’s shoe factory in Northampton to the glamorous catwalks of Milan.

With direction and choreography by two-time Tony Award-winner Jerry Mitchell (Legally Blonde, Hairspray) and a book by Broadway legend and four-time Tony Award-winner Harvey Fierstein (La Cage Aux Folles), KINKY BOOTS is the winner of six Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Score and Best Choreography.
