Hynes hits the stage
Joe Hynes joins the Gary Chipman band tonight
Joe Hynes will take the stage at the Pig & Whistle dance series at the New London Community Complex tonight beginning at 8 p.m.
The music will be rock ’n’ roll from the 1950’s and 60’s and goes until 11 p.m. There will also be some fiddle tunes by Gary Chipman. The house band features musicians Blair Coughlin, Orrin Baird, George MacPhee and Bob Gagnon.
Hynes is a Newfoundland and Labrador native now living in Montague. He has played plenty of P.E.I. dances, ceilidhs and concerts and is considered an extremely versatile musician with a musical repertoire that is old rock ’n’ roll and some country. He is also known for his Newfoundland and Labrador humour and may include a few stories and jokes to entertain the audience.
“It will be the first time that Joe and I have played music together, but I bet it won’t be the last,’’ Chipman said.
Chipman has been playing 1950s and 60s rock and roll dance music since a young age, having been a member of the P.E.I. band Dino & The Satins and later fronting his own old time rock ’n’roll band, the Gary Chipman band.
The bakery at the complex will be open, which is a fundraiser for the hall.
Admission is at the door. This event also supports both the New London Community Complex and Cystic Fibrosis Canada. The complex is air-conditioned and wheelchair accessible and is located at 10227 Route 6 in New London.
All those 19 years of age and over are welcome.
