Rex Hobart and The Honky Tonk Standards
09:00pm - 12:00am

Their songs are right out of the Buck Owens songbook, and will break your heart, if you have one. They're decidedly reverent, but definitely not an aping museum piece, either. You have not heard straight up honky tonk done like this in decades. www.myspace.com/rexhobartandthemiseryboys

The Fabulous Ginn Sisters
08:00pm - 11:00pm

The Fabulous Ginn Sisters have made a career of breaking hearts in clubs across North America. Their already constant touring schedule recently ballooned to include touring as part of the Fred Eaglesmith Band. Backing up the iconic Indie artist led to a collaboration with Eaglesmith’s band in their opening sets. Eaglesmith was struck by the new band’s rough, rawboned sound and invited them to record the new Fabulous Ginn Sisters CD in his Port Dover, Ontario studio. The result is a smoky, drunken stumble through a broken-heart junkyard.

Makuza
08:00pm - 11:00pm

A profound connection with Afro Latin music along with a constant desire for breaking new ground are the fuels behind this highly successfull and fast moving Afro-Latin combo. As seen in their bios, each member is highly acclaimed in many diverse fields of music, which comes through in their songs very clearly. At a typical show, in less than an hour, one is likely to hear (among others) traditional African music, Salsa, Cha-Cha-Cha, Samba, and Funk.

Grand Marquis
09:00pm - 12:00am

The Grand Marquis have that classic, timeless 'straight-from-the-Kansas City-speakeasy' sound while injecting a vibrant relevance into their brand of hot swinging jazz & jumping blues. Versatile and buoyant, distinct and refreshing - a rhythm cocktail served by masterful musical mixologists

Saturday 10.09.2010
Outlaw Jim and The Whiskey Benders
09:00pm - 12:00am

Outlaw Jim and The Whiskey Benders are a hard-hittin' Outlaw Country band with roots in the sounds of Waylon Jennings and Merle Haggard, as well as influences from New Orleans Funk and Southern Rock. They have traveled extensively in the Midwest and South, playin' festivals, concerts, private events, as well as the beloved honky-tonks along the way. They have played The Grand Ole' Opry Plaza Parties and famous venues on Lower Broadway in Nashville, numerous bars and festivals in New Orleans, and mountain towns in The Rocky Mountains.

Celebrate with Bo Lings

The Chinese Moon Festival is on the 15th of the 8th lunar month. It's also known as the Mid-autumn Festival. Chinese culture is deeply embedded in traditional festivals. Just like Christmas and Thanksgiving in the West, the Moon Festival is one of the most important traditional events for the Chinese.

The Moon Festival is full of legendary stories. Legend says that Chang Er flew to the moon, where she has lived ever since. You might see her dancing on the moon during the Moon Festival. The Moon Festival is also an occasion for family reunions. When the full moon rises, families get together to watch the full moon, eat moon cakes, and sing moon poems.
The Moon Festival is also a romantic one. Lovers spend such a romantic night together tasting the delicious moon cake with some wine while watching the full moon.

The moon cake is the food for the Moon Festival. Try it at Bo Lings
