The Mike McCarthy Band
May 21st, 2022
Mike and Erica McCarthy are "The Mike McCarthy Band", and have been performing together for 30 years. Mike was born and raised in Toronto and Erica was born and raised in Montreal, they have been a part of the Georgian Triangle music scene since 1993. The band’s secret weapon, and the force that pulls all of its diverse influences together, is the voice of Mike McCarthy, an expressive instrument brimming with gritty soul combined with the sweet harmonies of Erica Prinn-McCarthy. Their blend of southern rock, blues, folk and soul make them hard to pigeonhole, but easily accessible to anyone who loves good music. Coming to The Village at Blue this Saturday with Gabor Szepesi on keys and Johnny Panchyshyn saxaphone.

Spend a moment in his presence and you'll know music is a passion that runs deep. Shane is a virtuoso guitarist delivering his thought-provoking lyrics through a strong emotional voice. With the release of his first album "In Light" and his latest album "Red Wagon" the music industry has taken notice. His song-writing skills, strong vocals, and work as a guitarist would bring musical success on their own, but combined they are so much more.

For Rebecca Rain, there are three things that matter most - family, the small town she grew up in, and music. While that list may read like different things, in a very real way they are all simply parts of the same whole that drives her passion. That’s because there’s something about growing up in a small town… The lines between family, friends and strangers are drawn thinner and lighter - strangers become friends, friends become family, and family is inseparable from one’s self. Part of the package of growing up with the small town life for Rebecca was a very early exposure to country music. Drawing influences from childhood favourites like Loretta Lynn, June Carter Cash, and Patsy Cline, Miss Rain has crafted a sound that is equally modern and traditional, all delivered by a voice that is hauntingly pure, and with a reflective songwriting style wise beyond her years. With all the places that Rebecca’s music has, and will continue to take her, she is grounded by the strength of her roots, and in knowing that eventually, all roads lead to home.
