Last night's BOTR @ THE COVE Show w.

RICK FINES & SUZIE VINNICK and their band were every bit as good as expected for their BOTR Show at The Cove last night as they played to a packed house. What a wonderfully talented pair of musicians - truly two of Canada’s best. Their 20 year musical friendship showed through all night long as they laughed, sang and traded hot guitar licks. Rick was masterful on slide and Suzie ripped it up on her “green machine”. 3X Juno Award winner Alec Fraser on bass and John Crown (an old friend of Rick’s from Peterborough) on drums were excellent two. At one time they all traded guitars with Suzie on bass, Rick on Suzie’s guitar and Alec taking the Les Paul. Fun! This was an all-electric show and the packed dance floor attested to how much the audience enjoyed it. The Cove put on their usual great buffet spread and $648 was raised for the Friends Of Foley Mountain. All in all - another terrific night of Blues at BOTR @ The Cove.

“What a warm, friendly, charming place - both the staff and guests! A wonderful break in the middle of a cold, drab winter. Our first time here but we’ll be back for sure.” Janet Clarke, Ottawa (first-timer)

“The venue is perfect, relaxing, upbeat and friendly. The food is very good and band was terrific! I don’t know who enjoyed themselves more - the musicians or the patrons!” Tom Todd, Almonte (2nd time attendee)

“This is our second time here and this time we’re staying overnight. Great venue, super food - love the opportunity to connect with others. 10 out of 10 for Rick & Suzie!” Barbara Linds, Yarker (2nd time attendee)
