The city of St. Catharines is tuning up for a night of music with two of Canada’s premier tribute bands, as Fleetwood Nicks and Practically Petty hit the stage at Club Roma on Thursday, January 11, 2024. The doors will swing open at 7:00 PM, with the music beginning at 7:30 PM.
The event is a fundraiser in support of Make-A-Wish Canada, an organization that creates life-changing wishes for children facing critical illnesses.
Toronto-based Fleetwood Nicks takes audiences on a journey through a classic setlist of Fleetwood Mac, Stevie Nicks' solo hits, and the songstress’ mid-eighties collaborations with Tom Petty.
Anna Leeming, the artist behind Fleetwood Nicks, has been described as a “dead ringer for the young Stevie”, and captures the mystique and charm of the performer with authenticity.
Songs like Dreams, from the 1977 Fleetwood Mac album “Rumours,” and Edge of Seventeen from Nicks’ 1981 release “Bella Donna” cemented her atop the list of iconic rock stars.
Erin Lasky, portraying Christine McVie, adds another layer to the Fleetwood Nicks experience. Her rendition of Song Bird has been a mainstay on the band’s setlist, and displays Lasky’s talents as a vocalist.
Since 2009, Practically Petty has been bringing audiences the classic sounds of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Every Practically Petty concert is a homage to the late singer, and the band prides itself on authenticity as it pays tribute to his legend.
They’ve even outfitted themselves with the same instruments the Heartbreakers used during their massive run of rock hits from the late seventies into the mid-nineties.
Their extensive song catalogue includes all of Petty's hits with the Heartbreakers, as well as his solo work and side projects, like The Traveling Wilburys.
Beyond the music and nostalgia, this concert serves a great cause, and raises awareness of one of Canada’s great wish-granting organizations.
The event is a fundraiser in support of Make-A-Wish Canada, a group that creates life-changing wishes for children facing critical illnesses. The group has made it their quest to bring every eligible child’s wish to life, because wishes are an important part of a child’s treatment journey.
Wishes provide kids with hope when they need it most, and research shows they have effects on children’s overall well-being and health outcomes.
Each wish granted replaces fear with confidence, sadness with joy, and anxiety with hope.
Make-A-Wish Canada has granted over 38,000 wishes since 1983, contributing to the physical and emotional strength needed by children fighting critical illnesses.
