Coffee House Concerts
Our 10thseason is off to a great start and the fun is going to keep going!  Up next in our Hamilton location on Saturday, November 10, we welcome Cootes Paradise!  
Cootes Paradise specializes in 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 (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.
This will be a very special performance for them as they’ve never “unplugged” before, but they feel up to the challenge and confident that the songs will transcend the approach.  This is going to be one Incredible show!  You don’t want to miss it!
In Milton on Saturday, November 17, we welcome male A Cappella group Four Over Forty!  When they performed in Hamilton in 2011 they sold the place out.  Following in the footsteps of The Nylons, Manhattan Transfer and many others, these guys know how to entertain and put on a show!  They can be heard performing in different festivals and fund raisers all around the Halton Region. Given that the human voice is the original instrument, these four know how to use it to create rich harmonies, producing a sound that will make you melt.  The voices of Kevin Ernst, Rick Ernst, Paul Schlatman, and Jeff Bonnell make up Four Over Forty.  We’ve had requests to book them and now they are coming to the Milton stage ready to woo the audience.  If you’re looking for a great date night this would be it!
Celebrating our tenth season we now have our 10th Anniversary Compilation CD for sale.  It's a mix of 18 different artists who have performed at ABC over the last ten years.  20% of the CD sales will go to the MusiCounts charity.   Please visit their website.


We offer advance tickets at a discount for both locations and can be purchased by visiting our website 
In Hamilton  advance tickets are $14, Door tickets $18 or two for $35.  All treats and drinks are included in the Hamilton prices.  
Milton tickets are $12 in advance and $15 at the door.   Our Milton location will continue to offer treats, wine, beer and spirits for purchase.
Each show begins with an Open Mic, giving people a chance to be on stage and showcase their talents.   If you would like to participate in future Open Mics please email or call/text 416-565-9490.  Performers will have three songs or fifteen minutes, whichever comes first.  We appreciate the courage of these performers and waive their admission fee.  Don't be shy! We encourage everyone from complete beginners to seasoned pros to come out for Open Mic.  Some of our feature performers have been booked through it!

We are now accepting audition applications for our April show "Tomorrow's Headliners".  If you know of a student ages 14 - 21 that would like to audition to be in the show please pass the information on to them.  Deadline to apply is Friday November 9th.  An application can be requested by email
