Petunia & The Vipers Dance Party
Petunia has spent most of the last 23 years crisscrossing sections of Europe, North and South America, playing his old hobo haunts, hitch hiking junctions, street corners, dive bars, churches and rundown theatres. He’s more than just an entertainer, he’s a modern musical enigma.
A restless wanderer, a musical historian, and a quirky yet amazing talent, Petunia is simply a Canadian treasure joining the greats from north of the 49th.
A poem by Al Mader describing Petunia:
Razor sharp hombre
all snake eyes and boxcars
steals a kiss from a raven-haired flapper
slips out the side window
of a 1920s speakeasy
Out fleet-foots a flatfoot
hops a train to
Buddy Bolden’s tombstone
wins some horseflesh playing
high stud –
pitches camp beneath a prairie sky
watched over by a full moon
and a lovesick coyote
howling for mercy…
Come enjoy the camaraderie of music lovers like yourself.
Free parking, full menu, all ages and a big dance floor.
