Dinner and a Song featuring: Ariana Gillis

Friday, November 9, 2018


Join us Friday November 9 for Dinner and a Song, for a night of food and entertainment! Our guest this time is Ariana Gillis. More details and ticket information at www.dinnerandasong.com

Hailing from just outside Toronto, Ariana Gillis began taking singing lessons at the age of six. In 2009 she won Songwriter of the Year at the 2009 Niagara Music Awards, followed by Female Vocalist and Album of the Year in 2010. She networked at music conferences, which led to a quick, two-song performance for Dave Marsh in a stairwell in Memphis, following the release of her second album, Forget Me Not. Marsh then played Gillis on his Sirius XM radio show, which caught the attention of Elton John's songwriting partner.
“I'm staggered by how good she is. There's not much that impresses me these days but after hearing her available tracks, I can honestly say she's the single most exciting artist I've heard in a long time.” - Grammy Award-winning Lyricist, Bernie Taupin
The above quote is typical of the excitement Canada’s Ariana Gillis was creating from the earliest stages of her career. But after sustaining a serious concussion in 2015, Ariana believed that she would never be able to write and perform music again.
Well, she’s proving herself wrong, as after an extended period of recovery she's back with a new album “Freedom” with multi- GRAMMY® Award-winning producer, Joel Moss and CFMA Producer of the Year, David Gillis. Freedom, the first song released from these sessions, presents a timely statement surrounding the repression of human rights and false promises in the U.S. and around the globe. As Ariana explains: "What occurred to me was the irony of the word freedom and how it is used politically as a positive and hopeful feeling—but in the wrong hands it always ends up becoming the opposite. At its core, Freedom touches on equity and the important value of human kindness"

Dinner Package Tickets are $50 + HST and include the concert plus a three-course meal. Doors at 6:00, Dinner 7:00, Concert 8:00
