Fantastic weather Sept. 9th drew in 100’s of family, friends, neighbors, music lovers of all ages in the spirit of friendship and community to raise funds for Peel Youth Shelter.
100’s of familiar faces in support of this fantastic event: Lisa Trencs and Richard Decroix,

For a mere $15 cash donation & a food item at the entrance, you got a motorcycle show and shine, delicious BBQ buffet of sausages, hamburger, hot dogs, chicken, salads & Bruce Beer’s famous chili& the best Live Entertainment.
‘Mississauga’s Torpedo Sunrise brought raw & real musical energy to the stage as they kicked it off with some ELVIS, The Stones, STP, ZZ Top & even some Tragically Hip. https://www.facebook.com/rock4rent Byron, Pat, Bob, REV and Rob, heated up that stage & revved up the audience for 1 of the most in demand rock elites & Canada’s Premier Party Band, The Carpet Frogs.
Nick Sinopoli as frontman with a cowbell or tambourine, Gerry Finn on guitar and vocals, Michael Zweig on guitar and vocals, Sean Fitzsimons on drums with bassist Leo Valvassori sure mesmerized us with 2 rockin’ great sets of covers from 8:15 pm until 11:00 pm
Nick Sinopoli’s vocal talent was breathtaking, such incredible versatility. The eager audience screamed out Dion and the Belmonts, CCR, Johnny Cash, Alice Cooper; you name it and The Carpet Frogs delivered a song in seconds by that chosen artist. Each show is unique and never the same, as they don’t have a specific set list. However, they take you on a musical roller coaster ride down memory lane featuring songs from the past 60 years.
Over all, the entertainment was splendid, solidifying one rock n roll fantasy made a reality for me.CONGRATULATIONS to host Kevin Haller and his crew of the 6th Annual Charity Biker Bash, as they raised $900 cash and 25 bags of groceries for the new 30 bed, Peel Youth Shelter.
