Oct. 16 I’m back with the Stew...Mulligans Stew that is!.. at Mulligans in Mississauga. The band’s the same but the hours have changed. It’s now 5:00-8:00pm. Come and join Kevin Phillips, Rodney St. Amand, Gary Taylor, Rob Gusevs and myself as we never play the same songs twice. No cover and the food’s really good.

Oct. 30 Guess what? It’s Sunday so I’m playing guitar with the Stew at Mulligans. https://www.mulliganspub.ca
November
Nov. 3  A few years ago I started a Beatle band.. no costumes, no phony accents, no bad wigs… just the music. Some played exactly like the recordings and some re-arranged and re-imagined. We did a few tours with an artist from the Windsor area and he would paint while we would play. It was an interesting show. But this year that painter needed a headliner and hired The McCartney Years (a Paul McCartney clone act). It’s all good. But we had a date booked at the Moonshine Cafe to get our stuff together. Rather than waste an opportunity to play some Beatle material in front of an audience, we decided to go ahead with our plans. So Rodney St. Amand, Gary Taylor, Rob Gusevs, Kevin Phillips and I are going to do a night at the Moonshine. An incredible little venue in Oakville just a few doors from where I bought my first ‘real’ guitar. 
We’re starting at 7:30 with a little acoustic set from me (just to satisfy all the people who want to hear  my weird, funny songs..) and then 'The Stew' is taking the stage. Now it won’t be an all Beatle night.. but we do a lot of Beatle material so we’ll throw that all in, plus a lot of other cool songs. Bottom line is you’re gonna hear some great music played by some great musicians. The Moonshine is located at 137 Kerr St. Oakville ON. Here’s the link: http://www.themoonshinecafe.com
Nov. 6 The Stew is back at Mulligans. See the October 16 listing for all the deets. https://www.mulliganspub.ca
Nov. 11 Yes it’s Remembrance Day. A solemn occasion to be sure. But this year I’ll be in Windsor with Paul Murray (the artist) doing a multi-act show at The Chrysler Theatre. It’s the Beatle themed night I was speaking of on the November 3 date above. I know I’ll be on the show along with Brian and Suzie Good (of the Good Brothers) as well as Kelsey Maine up and coming country singer, Gareth Pearson amazing fingerstyle guitarist, and a host of others including The McCartney Years. It’s a wild show where we play the music and Paul Murray paints the Beatles. And does he ever do it good! Plus all the profits go to charity. It’s a win, win, win!

Nov. 13 Wendell & Wheat return to McDonald’s Corners for another show at the MERA Schoolhouse. These are intimate concerts in the lovely setting of a beautiful old schoolhouse. (I’m certainly familiar with schoolhouses…if I had to repeat grade 7 one more year… I could’ve taught it.) The lovely folks that run the venue had me and Wheat several years ago and wanted us back… but then there was Covid. Well that’s mostly over... with so we’re going back. The schoolhouse is located at 974 Concession Road 9A Dalhousie, McDonalds Corners. Note: Covid protocols may still be in place. Here’s the web-site although it appears to be having problems. https://meraschoolhouse.org
Nov.  16-20  Wendell and Wheat hit the near north. It’s been a couple of years since Katherine and I have toured together and we’re heading up to Little Current, Sault Ste. Marie and Parry Sound. We haven’t solidified all the dates and venues yet, but check back soon and it will be listed here.
