Hynes hits the stage

Joe Hynes joins the Gary Chip­man band tonight

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

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.
