Hugh’s Room Forced to Move Due to Rent Hike
As many of you will now have heard, that despite months of negotiations with our landlord, we have failed to come to agreement on terms based on fair market value. As a result we will be forced to close our doors at our current location on March 31, 2020.
It is our intention to honour as many of our show bookings and tickets as possible, but it is going to take us a bit of time to secure an alternate venue. We are confident that all shows on the calendar will have a home and as soon as an alternate venue is secured, we will be notifying all ticket holders immediately. We ask patrons to kindly not reach out to our box office for updates in the interim.

The Ultimate Sam Cooke Experience with Carla Cooke
Advance $30 / Door $35*
Sam Cooke was an American singer, songwriter, civil-rights activist and entrepreneur. Influential as both a singer and composer, he is commonly known as the King of Soul for his distinctive vocals and importance within popular music. His music, inspired in large part by his religion and the political climate of the time, was in itself timeless, adored by millions still to this day.
Carla Cooke is the youngest daughter of Sam Cooke. Carla’s future mirrors the image of her father. Carla crafted her sound in the church similar to her dad. Carla knows her father’s roots are so deep that she has become her own person and connects with her roots through her father’s music. Having her father and godfather, as well as Sir Mac Rice, writer of “Cheaper to Keep Her” and “Mustang Sally” and her Uncle Recording Artist, LC Cooke, as inspirations motivates the journey she is on as an independent artist.
Carla Cooke’s style is diverse in Gospel, Christian, R&B, Soul, Pop and the contemporary sound that embraces today’s culture. Carla has the flavour of longevity. With a strong vocal range and warm presence passed on to her by her father, Carla is a commanding force on any stage she performs.
