The jewel in Newcastle’s live music scene, Lizotte’s in Lambton have announced some great shows overnight, and we’ve got all the goss!
Jeff Martin – June 7
Jeff Martin was raised in Windsor, Ontario and started playing the guitar at age 8. He formed his first band at age 11 and decided, then and there, that this is what he wanted to do with his life. In high school he was challenged by an older student to learn a blues- inspired Led Zeppelin song which inspired his father, a blues fan, who turned him on to the blues standards. Jeff caught on quickly and could frequently be found jamming with professional bands from the Windsor Detroit area while still in his teens. During his teens he was also given a copy of The Beatles Sergeant Peppers album and his imagination was captured by the instrumentation of Within You Without You. Jeff developed a fascination with eastern tunings and instruments, a preoccupation he later indulged with great success as a member of the seminal Canadian band, The Tea Party.
Fletcher Pilon – July 16
The whole country now knows what a sensational performer Fletcher Pilon is. Having just celebrated his 15 birthday, he has the musical talent that extends way beyond his years.
