Our Ottawa Tour

Wednesday, August 5, 2009 We had a very busy week last week, starting with The Royal Botanical Gardens Red Hot Jazz and Cool Blues Festival where we played our hearts out to a very good crowd, lots of friendly people, great food, and great weather.

Friday, August 7th, 2009 we left for Quyon Quebec where we were staying at Andre's parents cottage on the Ottawa River. It was a great drive and we made great time. Later...much later that night (3 a.m.) the second load of band members arrived (due to car problems) While we waiting for the second car to make it we took advantage of the horseshoes, relaxing, bonfire, and a ride on Catamaran.

Saturday, August 8th, 2009 We arrived at 11 a.m. in Perth, Ontario after taking a ferry and a good drive back into Ontario to perform for the Perth Garlic Festival. Eating lots of samples of garlic, garlic spreads, honey, fudge, a garlic bread tasting, and other great treats. Thanks to the Lions Club and the committee of the Perth Garlic Festival!
We ended the night with more relaxing and a few Euchre Games. Intense...

Sunday, August 9th, 2009 Everyone spent the day doing different things such as; fishing, eating, relaxing, walking, jogging, horseshoes, and birdwatching. Later that night we made our way to Ottawa, ON our capital city at the Rainbow Bistro where we bumped into Richard Page(Tenor Sax) that went to school with at Mohawk College. IT was a great crowd, with dancers from Swing Dynamite in Ottawa. We met a lot of great people from Ottawa and England, and from surrounding cities. Thanks everyone for staying for the show on a Sunday night!

Monday, August 10, 2009 6 a.m. Elliott Marshall the drummer left earlier to get to work for 1 p.m. in Milton, ON
The rest of us prepared slowly to go home for after lunch by, lounging, fishing, walking, and just taking our time. We made it home around 9 p.m. and that was our Ottawa Trip!!!
