Cornwall Ontario – The Juno award-winning blues/swamp-rock trio MonkeyJunk rocked the Port Theatre in Cornwall on Friday, December 4th, 2015.
Hundreds of people were in attendance to enjoy a set by the group that won the 2011 Juno Award for Blues Album of the Year for their record, To Behold.
“Look at this place, it is great. You are lucky to have such a nice venue like the Port Theatre that plays live music”, said lead vocalist Steve Marriner peering out to the cheering crowd.
MonkeyJunk are currently on tour in support of their fourth full-length album, Moon Turn Red, which was released in September via Stony Plain Records. Moon Turn Red was produced by Blue Rodeo’s Colin Cripps, and also features some guest guitar from the legendary David Wilcox.
Opening the show for MonkeyJunk was Anna Marie Newton, a talented musician with a powerful voice and strong stage presence. The Montreal musician, originally from Cornwall, entertained and thrilled the audience.
Two more fantastic concerts are happening at the Port Theatre in December. On Saturday December 12th there is Help! (a tribute to the Beatles), and on Sunday December 27th Us With Wolves play their final concert. For more information on these and other concerts, movies, and shows visit: http://theporttheatre.com.
