Johnny Zatylny is under no illusion that he is Freddie Mercury reincarnated. “There was only one Freddie. All I can do is bring his spirit back to the stage.” Critical reviews suggest he does that very well having performed his Queen tribute throughout Europe and North America. From Another One Bites the Dust to We Will Rock You tonight’s concert is guaranteed to get your heart pumping and your hands clapping!

Etwell Concert Series – Paul Reddick
July 1 from 3:00 – 6:00 PM at 2012 Etwell Road
Paul Reddick has long been apart of Canada’s rich roots music scene. He is one of the best harmonica players in the country. His distinctive voice covers a wide emotional palette, always engaging, sometimes a shout, more often a conversationally vivid whisper. But it is Reddick’s songs — sometimes sweet, sometimes bitter, always thought-provoking and rarely sentimental — and the passionate way he delivers them that best illustrate what the influential British magazine Mojo described as his “wayward brilliance”. In the real world, he has been nomianted for Junos and Blues Music Awards and he is a seven-time Maple Blues Award winner. And he continues to tour — across Canada and the United State, with two or three trips a year to Europe — with his hard-hitting band.
