Very exciting to be a part of The Kensington Market Festival. We took the stage 2nd with Band Nine as a backing band: Paul Conlon on Bass, Tony Borges on stratocaster and Mark on drums. The band was coming from Brampton and it was somewhat chaotic getting everyone on stage at the same time. Not many people outside of the loyal core group but a good performance all around. A good video performance clip came out of it and the band started to work the songs for the future.
Artist line-up included

Performed solo for this festival. Originally scheduled to be on with Bass player Rob Ross but had to cancel the bass at the last minute due to a noise restriction (a comedy show going on downstairs). Good show - went through the set list competently without missing missing much. A big noisy crowd who were not really there for the show - more of a sports/pick-up bar but still the biggest crowd I played before up to now. 

The line-up for the show included:

9:00 - 9:45 Signe Miranda
10:00 - 10:45 Bob Menzies
11:00 - 11:45 Social Potion
12:00 - 12:45 Groovy Brothers
1:00 - 1:45 The Bloody Five
