Andre & the J-Tones in Ottawa, Perth and Quebec

Hey! (Photo's Below)

We're back from our trip in Quebec, Ottawa and Perth. We were very fortunate to stay on the Ottawa River in a cottage in Quyon, Qc where the beer is sold in convinence stores and poutine on every corner.

We performed in Ottawa at a great Pub called D'Arcy McGee's at 44 Sparks Street near the Parliament buildings. We had a great crowd and saw lots of friends and family from the area which was awesome! We played till 1 a.m. and ended with an encore of Proud Mary.

When we got back to the cottage we were lucky to catch the best moments of the meteor shower that was taking place above us. It was a great site and first time most of us had seen one.

Friday and Saturday we had off to relax and spend some time in Ottawa to see the Museum of Civilization and have lunch in the Byward Market area. Other than that we spent time playing volleyball and horseshoe at the cottage.

Sunday early morning it was raining something torrential which left us wondering if we would be performing at all that day. When we arrived in Perth the rain stopped just in time for us to perform at the Perth Garlic Festival. During our breaks we went to sample all the different garlic dips, jams, fudge, honey, and flavoured and pickled garlic, making it an extremely delicious festival! We finished around 3 p.m. when it began to rain again. (phew!)

Sunday evening we enjoyed an amazing last dinner as we had all week and relaxed one last night on the Ottawa River.

Overall we had a great time and are looking forward to next years Eastern Ontario Tour.
