Kelly Gale

The Georgian Bay Club is pleased to present Kelly Gale as part of our 2017 - 2018 Weekend Winter Dining Program. Kelly is an accomplished pianist with a truly unique writing style and sultry smooth alto tone to her voice. She has performed for capacity crowds across Canada and throughout Europe both as a soloist and with renowned orchestras.

Kelly's first Juno submission "You Don't Know Me" in 2009 followed her very successful 2004 CD "Christmas in Nova Scotia". The title track “Everything I Need This Christmas” was selected by Universal Music for their compilation CD “A Canadian Christmas 3” along with such great Canadian artists as Bryan Adams, Diana Krall, Bruce Cockburn and Ann Murray. You will no doubt hear this song over the holiday season on various radio stations. 

In addition to being an accomplished artist, with her art on display at the Loft Gallery in Thornbury, you may also know Kelly from her weekly "Spotlights" and "Arts & Events Reports" heard on Classical 102.9FM in our local listening area. Kelly also will soon be writing for our local "On The Bay Magazine", as both Classical 102.9FM and On The Bay are all part of the Zoomer Media family.


Kelly will next be at the Club on Friday March 2nd Saturday March 3rd.  


The GBC is proud to welcome Kelly to the Club again this season... Thank you Kelly!


Danny Weis

The Club is excited to welcome famed guitarist Danny Weis back to the Club this season. You may remember Danny being with us some years ago when we first began our Weekend Winter Dining Program. Danny has recently returned to the area, and has graciously agreed to join us this winter season.


Raised in San Diego, California, Danny was taught guitar by his father Johnny Weis, a well-known country jazz guitarist. At their home, legendary jazz guitar great Barney Kessel was frequently found jamming and trading guitar licks in the living room with Danny and his dad. These early influences formed the foundation of Danny’s strong sense of melody, bluesy lines, and the unique funky rhythmic style that defines his trademark guitar sound.


At just 18 Danny co-founded Iron Butterfly and caught the eye of Elektra Records producer Paul Rothchild, who presented Danny with an offer to join super group Rhinoceros. He accepted and went on to record three albums with the group and co-wrote their instrumental hit Apricot Brandy.


Danny was the musical director and performed in the movie The Rose, starring Bette Midler, for which he received gold and platinum American Music Awards. In 2005, Marshmellow Records recorded and released Danny’s first solo project Sweet Spot, which features an exciting mix of smooth jazz, funk and R & B originals.


Now living in the Georgian Bay area once again, Danny is kept busy in his studio writing, arranging and recording his own projects as well as recording and performing with other Canadian, US and International artists.


Danny will next be at the Club on Friday March 9th and Saturday March 10th.


Welcome back Danny !
