Notice of Postponement Due to COVID-19
Monday, March 16, 2020
Like everyone else in the world, Hugh’s Room Live is closely monitoring the situation around the COVID-19 outbreak. Based on the information currently available, we have made the painfully difficult decision to postpone all shows through to the end of April, effective immediately.
If you have tickets for a postponed show, please watch for more information about rescheduling. We will notify every ticket holder when a new date and venue are found for each the shows on our calendar. If you are unable to attend a rescheduled show, we ask everyone to please consider their ticket purchase a donation to Hugh’s Room Live instead of requesting a refund. As a non-profit registered charity, we will gladly send you a tax receipt for the equivalent amount of your purchase.
Like so many art, culture and hospitality organizations, our artists and staff are struggling greatly during this time. We encourage everyone in our audience here to continue supporting live music wherever possible until we reach the other side of this pandemic that has so devastated the arts and culture of our society. We will of course be reevaluating our decision on a daily basis as we navigate the new circumstances around the pandemic, please know that your continued support, understanding and advocacy in the interim will add much-needed sustainability to our venue and industry at large. Thank you.

Cootes Paradise specializes in original roots-based music that is bluesy, funky, and filled with soul. Featuring lead vocals by the legendary Sue Leonard (k.d. lang, Bruce Willis, Bon Jovi), and Wayne Krawchuk (Sidestreet, Tight Little Island) supported by Mark Volkov (a triple threat, playing flute, sax, and violin), Lily Sazz (keyboards, vocals), Amy Di Nino (drums, vocals), and Ian Taylor (bass, vocals), the result is an infectious, groove-based sound with a mix of super cool covers and originals that easily stand up to the rest of the repertoire.
“Cootes Paradise”, their self-titled CD and first release, hit the airwaves in November 2017, and has enjoyed impressive reviews, has been consistently charting on the Roots Music Report charts (#11 in Canada all genres & #28 worldwide in blues), and hit #1 and #2 at a few stations throughout N. America, and helped to garner at Maple Blues Award nomination for New Artist/Group of the Year (2018). The CD is a collection of 12 songs that reflects the diverse songwriting styles in the band, and collaborative arrangements that shine a light on the quality of the music.
Join us on April 18 as we gather at Hugh’s Room Live to witness the astounding live performance of Cootes Paradise. Tickets available right now.
