Brett Kissel @ The River Run Centre in Guelph 

What better way to start off the new year than to open for Juno Award winner Brett Kissel! To top it all off, the beautiful River Run Centre in Guelph was completely SOLD OUT! The crowd was unbelievable and we want to thank everyone who came out to support and all those who came out to the meet and greet after the show. Always exciting meeting new fans! We were probably the most excited to meet the man of the hour Mr. Kissel himself. We'd like to thank Brett and his team and Invictus Entertainment for being so hospitable and the CMAO for giving us this unbelievable opportunity. Playing a sold out show with Brett Kissel. Now that's just don't forget!!
