Review – Cold Creek County, The Dean James Band and Marc Ekins

Saturday September 24th, 2016, we were off to Brighton, Ontario for Applefest and more amazing music!

Big Ticket Small Town Presented Cold Creek County with special guests The Dean James Band and Marc Ekins (a.k.a. Sticks ‘n Tones) outside of the King Edward Park Arena all in support of the Brighton and District Minor Hockey Association. There was a bit of a Fall chill in the air but, we were warmed by the music.

Marc Ekins has been in the music business for decades! Residing in Lindsay, Ontario, he has steadily made a name for himself over the years and constantly keeps himself involved in charity projects. He and drummer, Neil LaFortune have performed together for many years. They formed the duo Sticks ‘n Tones and have been keeping busy with gigs throughout Ontario. They perform a mix of original and cover tunes with a country flavour. Entertaining and enjoyable to listen to.

The Dean James Band hails from Peterborough, Ontario. They are a hard working band that bring a great rock edge to their sound. His bio states he is “a walking country music Jukebox with no limits on his performance.” That sums up his performance very well. This could be a band to watch for bigger things down the road.

Finally, Cold Creek County took the stage by storm! This was a hometown show for CCC’s front man, Brandon Scott, and you could feel the exchange of love between him and the crowd. The whole band was on fire and gave one of the best shows I’ve seen them do yet! It’s no wonder why they are fan favourites and multi CMAO Award winners.
