Genius+Soul=The Music of Ray Charles

Genius+Soul=The Music of Ray Charles       Saturday August 20, 2016


The Georgian Bay Club Foundation is pleased to present a very special evening of music and entertainment at Collingwood's Historic Gayety Theatre, all in support of "Events For Life".  "Events For Life" is a program for developmentally disable adults, regardless of age, who need to continue to have social, recreational and lifelong learning beyond high school.


This highly acclaimed musical tribute to Ray Charles entitled "Genius + Soul = The Music of Ray Charles" is coming to Collingwood!  An all-star Canadian cast of award-winning blues and roots musicians will perform a special concert honouring the father of soul Ray Charles!  Under the direction of producer and musical director Lance Anderson, the August 20th appearance will feature vocalists John Findley (Checkmates, Rhinoceros) John Mays (FATHEAD), Jay Jackson (The Majestics) and extraordinary female singers Quisha Wint and Cheryl Lescom.  Also featured are the incomparable Jesse O'Brien on piano (Collin James, Levon Helm), Al Learman (FATHEAD) on saxophone, Shamakah Ali (The Bar Kays, Albert King) on drums, and musical director Lance Anderson (The Last Waltz Tribute) on his infamous Hammond B3 organ.  This is truly an "all-star" performance.

This show features all the hits like "What I'd Say", "Unchain My Heart", "Hit the Road Jack", "Hallelujah, I Love Her So', "The Nighttime is the Right Time", "Let the Good Times Roll" and more.  Two hours of music that will soothe your soul and have you dancin' in your seats.  And when you hear Quisha Wint sing "Georgia" you will think you have died and gone to heaven!


For those that are attending Genius + Soul  we are planning to pick up the CBC's telecasting of the Tragically Hip's final concert immediately following Genius + Soul concert and make it available to you on our 24 foot screen for a full evening of great entertainment.
