RAISE YOUR HAND – A JANIS JOPLIN AND TOM JONES TRIBUTE CONCERT

COMING TO MISSISSAUGA FOR A VALENTINE’S LOVE-IN

Krista Blondin and Michael Theodore will be performing as Janis Joplin and Tom Jones for a ‘Valentine’s Love-in’, at The Army Navy & Airforce Veterans auditorium, on Saturday, February 16, 2019 in Lakeview, Mississauga, Ontario. 

Raise Your Hand: A Tribute to Tom Jones & Janis Joplin

Tom and Janis will bring the 60s and 70s back to life, transporting their audience to a time when freedom and love for all reigned supreme. The show, titled “Raise Your Hand”, will feature these two established entertainers, known for their sold-out tribute shows and standing ovations, when they take on the sight, sound and motion of two highly entertaining and adored musical icons.  

“Krista Blondin’s portrayal and recreation of Janis Joplin is second to none in the tribute business. She successfully made it feel like a Janis Joplin concert was directly in front of you.“

Andy Frost, Q107 Classic Rock

Janis Joplin and Tom Jones are both witty, funny, flirtatious, charming and down to earth souls, who largely sing about love (and often heartache in Janis’ case) making this a perfect concoction for a Valentine’s themed celebration. 

During the event, there will also be a photo booth/photographer, where audience members can have portraits taken with Janis, Tom, friends, and their Valentine sweethearts free of charge. Audience members are encouraged to dress in their favourite 60s and 70s outfits to get into the retro spirit.

Art Exhibit Explores Beauty Beneath the Surface of a Wetland

There’s more than meets the eye at the water’s edge. Starting on March 22 (World Water Day), Credit Valley Conservation and the Region of Peel present Morphology, an art exhibit showcasing a constructed coastal wetland through a photographer’s lens. The free exhibit will be on display for public viewing from March 22 to 28 in the Great Hall at the Mississauga Civic Centre, 300 City Centre Drive, Mississauga. A special meet-and-greet with the artists takes place on March 22 from 7-9 p.m.

The project challenged eleven photographers to celebrate the birth of a wetland and connect people with the lake through their unique creative vision. The local Mississauga artists gave new life to habitat structures built four metres below the level of Lake Ontario, before they will be submerged and hidden from view.

“I was inspired by the opportunity to capture and explore a part of the restoration process that’s often overlooked,” said Stephen Uhraney, one of the Morphology photographers. “I’m honored to be a part of a project that serves value to the community and shows beauty in the unexpected.”

The habitat structures formed an alien-like environment that allowed the evolving wetlands to be photographed and appreciated in a new way. Morphology refers to change in shape over time. The exhibit explores this change through creative expression as the new wetland comes to life.
