Calamity Janes at The Thousand Islands Playhouse

Kingston's newest all female band is putting on a show at The Thousand Islands Playhouse on Tuesday, September 14th 2010 alongside Island Voices.  The show will feature original tunes by all four women: Jenica Rayne, Lynne Hanson, Danielle Lennon and Les Casson as well as few great covers and even some fiddle tunes.  Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for children, $40 for a family.  Tickets can be purchased at the Thousand Islands Playhouse Box Office.

Calamity Janes are:   Jenica Rayne - vocals/guitar/bass            
                             Lynne Hanson - vocals/bass
                             Danielle Lennon - vocals/violin/fiddle
                             Les Casson - percussion

Calamity Janes have been together for almost two years and have been making a name for themselves playing various shows including: the opening of The Beautiful Women Project in Gananoque, The Red Roof Women's Festival and The Homegrown Music Festival as well as putting on their own shows at bars and restaurants in Toronto, Kingston, Picton and the surrounding area.

The Janes came together in the winter of 2009 upon realizing that they were all fans of each other's work.  So why not work together?  The vast diversity in the musical backgrounds of these four women gives the Janes a different flavour and the ability to play proficiently in countless styles.  Calamity Janes always please their audience and can move gracefully from a longing folk song to a soulful blues, through rock n' roll and right to a rockin' fiddle set.

Hope to see you there!
