This is where songs and stories come alive in Niagara. Our rooted house band, The Mark Lalama Trio is made up of the region’s most highly sought after musicians, Rich Moore, Davide DiRenzo and of course, Mark Lalama. Performances explode with energy and passion found in live off-the-floor sessions, but are grounded with proficiency and sincerity. These are the songs of Niagara ready to take on the world, and in some cases these songs took on the world and have come home to talk about it.
Each concert features a variety of musicians, known for playing on national, international and local stages. The Mark Lalama Trio meets with each artist just hours before the performance for a quick session, leading to an always unforgettable show.

Foundation. I have put together a bill of some of Canada's finest singers and songwriters, the idea is to invite the singers to showcase a yet to be released song, workshop it so to speak, or debut something on it’s way in or out of the recording studio (hence, "in the can"..)
Now... wait for this...the show will feature:
Laila Biali, Barbra Lica, Lori Cullen, Devin Cuddy, Alex Pangman, Genevieve Marentette, Ori Dagan, Whitney Ross Baris, The Annie Bonsignore, Darcey Windover, The O'Pears, Lawrence Cotton, myself, and more, backed by a house band of Nathan Hiltz on guitar, Tyler Emond on bass and Dave MacDougall on drums.
