FEBRUARY - the annual rock and roll show has been moved to MAY 17 & 18. (Too much snow to deal with in February !)
FEBRUARY 16 (Saturday). Vintage Wine’s Rock and Roll Dance Party, Lachine Legion, 3015 rue Henri-Dunant, Lachine QC H8S 1R5. Admission at the door is $15. Live music 8pm to midnight.

MARCH 24 (Sunday). Vintage Wine plus vocalist Melina Bikhazi play rock and roll and Motown music at a dinner dance at the Spanish and Portuguese Synagogue (4894 St. Kevin, H3W 1P2, near the Cote Ste. Catherine metro - click to get directions). We have performed twice there recently and had a grand time.
Guests are invited to dress in evening elegance and don a mask (from a costume or party store - some masks will be available at the ticket desk for those who come without one). The masks are optional and guests can remove them at will. The point is to have fun with this and keep up the party spirit. The event will be held in Lawee Hall .

We get lots of nice feedback from these concerts, such as these from last year : "We so enjoyed the show on Saturday evening at Concordia. As first time viewers it was quite a treat to sing along with each and every tune."
"I had the pleasure of attending your concert at the Oscar P. last Saturday. Third year in a row and I cannot wait for next year’s. The shows are super, the atmosphere great, and again - Thank You and all the musicians for the wonderful music."

JULY 12 (Friday). Vintage Wine returns to play in the garden of the Civic Centre of Dollard Des Oremeaux. In case of rain it will move inside. Free ! Bring a chair/ dancing shoes.
We often have private shows booked, so these are good chances to see the band in a public setting.
