LOCAL CONCERT ALERTS (Mourning Wood & The 3 Day Millionaires), Sault Ontario Concert Previews, And More!!

This is a good time to tackle most of this weekend's concert previews, but first, we have a concert cancellation, as Barrie-based AC/DC tribute band Hells Bells have been forced to postpone THIS SATURDAY'S Rockstar Bar concert due to an undisclosed family emergency. This was confirmed by The Rockstar Bar's Martin Fiser on the Facebook event page, noting that they are working to reschedule for next month, and while previously bought tickets will be accepted for the planned make-up date, you can get refunds at The Algonquin Hotel's front desk. This show had already been postponed from the original May date, and while a 2016 local stop appears to be cursed, hopefully things work out regarding the family emergency, and that we see Hells Bells back here soon! They have been replaced on short notice by classic rock veterans Mid Life Crysis in a rare Rockstar Bar appearance, so if you're up for a night of oldies and classic rock, keep them in mind!

Now, let's move into Sault Ontario concert previews, starting with some SHORT NOTICE LOCAL CONCERT ALERTS! First, Local classic/hard rock cover quartet The 3 Day Millionaires will return to The Rockstar Bar for one night only TOMORROW NIGHT! Apologies for the short notice, the band only announced the show via their Facebook event page yesterday. A one-nighter due to Saturday's Hells Bells-turned-Mid Life Crysis show, this will mark The 3 Day Millionaires third show with new guitarist Bill Brouillard, and first since Halloween night. That weekend was extremely packed for local concerts (as usual), so if you missed the new lineup's debut, you have an extra chance to see The Millionaires at The Rockstar Bar TOMORROW, so keep this union of Boxcar Junction, Lucky 13, Sneaky Pete, and Havadder alumni in mind! As now usual for single-band local shows at The Rockstar Bar, there is no announced cover charge, a 19+ age limit, and a start time of 10:30 PM. See above for more details, and here's The 3 Day Millionaires live!

Next up, fellow local classic/hard rock cover quartet Mourning Wood will return to The Rednecks Saloon for concerts TOMORROW & SATURDAY NIGHT! Again, apologies for the short notice, as these shows actually had a week's notice (an eternity for them), but we couldn't fit them into a post at the time before things got too soon to plug twice in a short span. Notably, these shows follow a surprise concert weekend by Mourning Wood founders Terry Eaton & Steven Flint alongside Terry's ex-Carbon Black bandmate Travis Sharpe as "a band with no name", and while I can't confirm if last weekend's shows at the former Nicolet were originally planned to be Mourning Wood shows or not, at least Paul and Glen will be on hand for the full experience TOMORROW & SATURDAY! As usual, you can take in their classic and hard rock covers and fan requests at 10:00 PM both nights, these also have 19+ age limits, and neither has a cover charge. Visit the official Facebook event page for more details, and here's Mourning Wood live!

Finally for today, we'll close at Gliss Steak & Seafood, where prolific hard rock singer/guitarist Tym Morrison is scheduled to continue his long-term weekly concert arrangement TONIGHT, TOMORROW, and SATURDAY! With his thrice-weekly matinees continuing to provide solid entertainment for fans of his unplugged hard rock covers, Tym should be a reliably entertaining presence at Gliss once again this weekend, so keep his shows at The Quality Inn's house restaurant in mind for this weekend, including TONIGHT! As usual for Tym's lengthy run at Gliss, there are no announced cover charges or age limits for these 6:00 PM events, but remember that this is a sit-down restaurant, not a typical bar or concert venue. Visit the official Facebook event page for more details, and here's Tym live!

That's all for today, but stay tuned for our 415E preview in St. Ignace in our next news post, plus this month's Defunct Local Band Profile soon as well! Thanks everyone!
