Niall MacKay head­lines dance tonight

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - COMMUNITY/ENTERTAINMENT -

Niall MacKay, known as P.E.I.’s Gran­daddy of rock ’n’ roll, will head­line the weekly dance tonight at the New Lon­don Com­mu­nity Com­plex for the weekly pig and whis­tle dance.

Mu­sic will be 1950’s and ’60’s rock ’n’ roll dance mu­sic, 8-11 p.m.

The Gary Chip­man band will be the house band fea­tur­ing Chip­man, Blair Cough­lin, Or­rin Baird, George MacPhee and Bob Gagnon.

MacKay was one of the orig­i­nal Trem­tones, the first rock ’n’ roll band on P.E.I.

Since then, he has earned many awards as a P.E.I. mu­si­cian in­clud­ing the Stomp­ing’ Tom Award and takes great pride in stage pres­ence and en­ter­tain­ing his au­di­ence.

“Niall MacKay is an au­then­tic rock ’n’ roller,” says Chip­man. “We have had many great times as band­mates and friends over the years, and every Thurs­day night we pay trib­ute to the mu­sic we both grew up with.”

The bak­ery at the com­plex will be open as a fundraiser for the hall.

Ad­mis­sion is at the door and this event sup­ports both the New Lon­don Com­mu­nity Com­plex and Cys­tic Fi­bro­sis Canada.

The com­plex is air-con­di­tioned and wheel­chair-ac­ces­si­ble.

All those 19 years and over are wel­come.
