Bad New Days: The Double

"brilliantdazzlingan engrossing, funny-sad study of a man slipping further and further from reality. I'd rush and get a ticket on the double." The Toronto Star

"Hysterical. There's a cabaret atmosphere to the whole production. It's pure theatre, with none of the preciousness that term sometimes signifies and all of the exhilaration." National Post

Bettye LaVette with special guest The Walkervilles

"The Great Lady of Soul" is joined by Motown/rock/R&B trio, The Walkervilles for an unforgettable evening.

Rhythm and blues royalty and legendary singer Bettye LaVette is one of the very few soul singers who did not get her start in church. Discovered at the age of 16 by the legendary Motor City music raconteur Johnnie Mae Matthews, LaVette began touring with the likes of Ben E. King, Otis Redding and James Brown, plus spent years on Broadway opposite Cab Calloway.

Special guests The Walkervilles hail from Windsor, across the river from Motown. The group's short existence has sparked excitement as their original songs are fresh with a sensitivity to classic soul.

"Some singers sing then there is Bettye. She doesn't just sing the song, she lives in each of them. I've heard it. I've stood close enough to see it in her eyes." Jon Bon Jovi

"Bettye LaVette's voice is like an authentic beacon in a world of artifice." James Taylor
