ALFIE ZAPPACOSTA “STRINGS ATTACHED”
DOORS 7:00 PM • SHOW 8:00 PM
THIS SHOW IS FOR AGES 19 AND UP
Many of you were part of history last year when Alfie Zappacosta filmed and recorded a live album and video with the Armadillo String Quartet featuring his full band including Silvio Pupo Montero on Keyboards, Kerry Galloway on Bass, Blake Manning on drums, and Grammy winning Tom Keenlyside on saxophone.
The album and the video are now finished and we are proud to be hosting a special screening of his new video on the big screen and the room’s incredible sound. Along with an audience question and answer period there will be an intimate one hour live set with his very impressive keyboard accompanist Steve Soucy.
This beautiful album video will be submitted for a Juno Award and we couldn’t be more excited.
Alfie is undeniably one of Canada’s premier songwriters and performers with chart topping hits and a recording and acting career that has spanned 40 years. From his steamy signature version of “ Me & Mrs. Jones ”, to his American Music Award winning “ Overload ” from the Dirty Dancing Soundtrack , Alfie Zappacosta continually demonstrates that he is truly one of the greats.
“Start Again”, “Passion”, “When I Fall in Love Again” and “Nothing Can Stand In Your Way” became staples on Canadian adult contemporary radio and Zappacosta became a personified Rock Star. Alfie penned and sang, “ Overload ” exclusively for the multi-platinum soundtrack “ Dirty Dancing ” and Loverboy would record Zappacosta’s “ That’s Where The Money Goes ” for their Wildside album.
In 1988, he was awarded JUNOs for “ Album of The Year ”, “ Most Promising Artist”, an American Music Award for “Most Popular Album of The Year” and named the Canadian Publishers Music Association’s “Best Rock Star” .
Spend a very special evening with two-time Juno Award winner, Alfie Zappacosta.
ADMISSION INCLUDES A COPY OF ALFIE’S NEW ALBUM “STRINGS ATTACHED”.
