It was the 14th annual Andy Kim Christmas Show , with upcoming shows in Montreal and for the first time in Burlington on December 20th. Andy Kim’s impressive catalog of hits were showcased on Wednesday night. Always a Superstar in Canada with his quality voice and Rockstar look, even after 50 years in the business, that in itself an impressive accomplishment in the music industry.
Kim talked between songs about his great career and the videos of him from the 1960’s through to the 80’s were a great touch as an amazing nostalgia trip down “memory lane”. The superstar backing band were right on key and they looked like they really enjoyed performing, just as much as the audience were there to party for a great cause. He sang the standards and new songs from his recent album, which had the fans up from their seats. Quite an amazing set, with some “Superstar moments” – Kim Mitchell with Alex Lifeson. It reminded me of the days when Max Webster opened up for Rush in their “heydays”
Besides the amazing set of music and musicians , it was all for a great cause . We look forward to the Burlington show and the 15th edition of this event in December 2019.
The line up included:
Andy Kim | Broken Social Scene | Billy Talent | Ron Sexsmith | Bif Naked | Hayden | Mary Margaret O’Hara | Theo Tams | Tom Cochrane | Kim Mitchell | Russell Peters | Peter & Leah (July Talk) | Alex Lifeson of RUSH
We would like to thank Eric Alper to the invitation to this event.
