Back to Mississauga's South Side Shuffle for one more post. This time I'll focus on the song and dance which was pretty much the real purpose of this event. Never mind that I was also in search of colourful photo opportunities while people watching in my two prior posts.
Harper and the Midwest Kind is a Michigan-based band led by an Australian harmonica and didgeridoo artist. They tour around Canada and the U.S., and they put on a great show for the many folks who came to see them. See all those lights up there? And all of the trusses and equipment that it takes to put on a show, on several different stages such as this one?...
Metalworks Production Group sets those stages, keeps light and sound equipment running smoothly, and takes everything down again at the end of the event. My son, Alex is on their team and was working long, hard hours throughout the event. It was with Metalworks Institute that Alex learned all about the industry. When he graduated, they hired him on production staff and he's been enjoying his career ever since.
Toe-tapping music got people dancing in their seats.
Others were encouraged out of their chairs to dance. I believe these two were strangers to one another before this moment.
But not afterward.
Canadian band Scott McCord and the Bonafide Truth put on a great performance.
The lead singer was very high energy for such a hot day and he had a hard time keeping his feet on the floor.
Even our Mayor Hazel McCallion had trouble keeping her dancing feet still.
And so, a good time was had by all. That's it for the South Side Shuffle. More photos coming up soon.
