WhatsOn Mar 21, 2018 by Graham Rockingham The Hamilton Spectator

THE ROCKETS

The Rockets — Paul Wheeler (bass and lead vocals), Jack Pedler (drums), Bill Dillon (guitar) and Georgie Fab (guitar and vocals) — have been playing classic rock in Hamilton for decades. On Friday, March 23, the band plays tribute to its founder Ronnie Lodge with a party at The Galley Pump, 365 Wentworth N. Stop by to say hello to Ronnie. No cover charge. 7 p.m.

KIM DAVIS

Two-time Juno nominee Kim Davis (reggae in 2010 and R&B/soul in 2014) headlines an R&B, funk and soul revue, backed by a nine-piece party band and hosted by Toronto comedian Jay Martin on Friday, March 23, at the Lincoln Alexander Centre, 160 King St. E. Tickets are $25. Doors open at 8 p.m. Show at 9.

EAMON McGRATH

He's a little rough around the edges and has been known to create one heck of a racket, but Toronto-based songwriter Eamon McGrath is capable of some remarkable street poetry. McGrath has some new songs and will be playing them Sunday, March 25, at The Casbah (Queen at King West) with Northern Primitive and The Oakhearts. Doors open at 8 p.m. Admission is $10.

JUNO AWARDS

Hamilton's Arkells perform at the Juno Awards Sunday at Vancouver's Rogers Arena and you can watch it live Sunday, 8 p.m., on CBC. The Arkells hit "Knocking at the Door" is also up for single-of-the-year honours. Other performers include Diana Krall, Michael Bublé, Sarah Harmer, City and Colour, Arcade Fire, Daniel Caesar, Jessie Reyez, Lights and the Barenaked Ladies.

SATE

Toronto's Sate performs soul-infused rock 'n' roll with a huge voice that will shake your bones and rattle your nerves. Sate has just recorded her second album and is bringing her band to This Ain't Hollywood, 345 James St. N., on Tuesday, March 27. With Catl, Solhounds and Celebration Army. Doors open at 8 p.m. $10 admission.
