I recently attended a Mellotones show Dec 23, 2017 and I realized my resolution for 2018.
They played the Marquee Ballroom to celebrate their 20th Anniversary.
Since 1997, this 8 man R&B Funk band blows away their covers and original songs all around the Maritimes.
Catch them regularly at their local gigs such as Bearly’s on Barrington Street and The Shore Club in Hubbards. This is a loud, hands up, feet stomping, drink to the bottom of the barrel, funky, soulful group of guys, killing it at every show.
This presents my resolution: Starting This Blog.
I’ve been cooking since before 1997, Certified Chef since 2000, Catering more then 10 years and a Father for more then 8 years. I'm not sure where my timeline of 20 years begins, but I’m not about to waste the next 20 years. Too much time passes with each year.
I’m hoping to use this blog to become more outside of my box;
Live, Learn and Explore.
Follow me as I discover and profile Local Food Places, Local Farmers and Producers, with minor Mellotones of Local Arts, Music and Festivals.
At the same time; providing resources and learning tools for my followers to aspire to become Creative Gourmets themselves.
Follow me on Facebook and stay up to date with my new Website Relaunch and my Local Seasonal Menu, My Superstore Cooking Lesson Schedule, Special Events and Promotions and so much more Feet Stomping!
The Mellotones will be starting their 2018 year in style; playing a New Years Gig in the Cayman Islands.
I can only aspire to bring as much energy and excitement into 2018 this year.
Well done Boys!
