playD Happenings (March 9, 2013)

Wow! LOTS going on this month …
Hi! I am nominated for a 2013 MARTY Award (Performing Arts – Established) presented by the Mississauga Arts Council. I am very honoured to be in such good company. The awards show will take place May 9th at the Living Arts Centre here in Mississauga.
I would really appreciate it if you would take a minute of your time to vote for me (DAVID O”HEARN) for the People’s Choice Award. Voting ends on March 25, so only a few weeks left
http://t.co/9sxLLURY9m THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
The Who’s TOMMY, presented by City Centre Musical Productions
The show runs March 15-17 and March 20-24 at Meadowvale Theatre (www.tommythemusical.ca)
I am very pleased to be playing Guitar 1 in a great band, led by Musical Director (and my friend), Michael Grieco. IT ROCKS!!!
Mike and I play in the Blackboard Blues Band together (www.blackboardbluesband.ca).
GET YOUR TICKETS at www.mtix.ca — tickets are going fast, so don’t delay.
HINT: we added an evening performance on Wed March 20, so that has the best seating available at present.
Rogers TV daytime Peel (TOMMY)
Also related to this production of TOMMY, I was pleased to be part of a taping of Rogers Cable 10 daytime Peel show hosted by Sonia Sache.
Daniel Brenner (our male lead, “Tommy”) and I went in yesterday (March 8) and the show aired at 4pm and 10pm.
Daniel and I performed Amazing Journey and I’m Free / Pinball Wizard (Reprise) from the show, so you get a taste of how great this show is. For those of you who missed it (or would like to see it again), I have posted it on my Vimeo page at: http://vimeo.com/61389390

Weathered Kings Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day!
Right after the March 17 performance of TOMMY (and I mean RIGHT AFTER), I’ll be heading to the Drake & Firkin Pub in Mississauga to perform with my band, The Weathered Kings (www.weatheredkings.ca), for our Annual St. Patrick’s Day Bash. The music starts at 5pm. Rumour has it a number of the TOMMY cast & crew will join in on the fun! Don’t miss it — this is a FUN evening.
Open Mic Nights Hosted by David O’Hearn (Wed and Thur)
You probably already are aware that, starting in January, I have been hosting a weekly (Thursday) Open Mic Night at The Crown & Lion in Brampton (www.crownandlion.com). It has been quite successful and is growing in popularity each week. My good friend, Matt Zadkovich, will be my substitute host on March 14 and 21 (as I will be playing the show TOMMY those evenings). Please join Matt for a great evening. If I can, I’ll stop by on my way home to join in on the fun.
Well, starting on March 27, I am also embarking on ANOTHER Open Mic Night each Wednesday at St. Louis Bar & Grill in Streetsville (www.stlouiswings.com/locations/ontario-west/mississauga/) along with Azfar Ali, who will be my co-host for the evening. Azfar will be booking slots for comedians to perform each week, so it will be a Comedy & Music open mic night.
I am very much looking forward to another evening each week of great talent and I hope you will join us often, either Wednesday (St. Louis Bar & Grill) or on Thursdays (The Crown & Lion).
Have a wonderful month of March — spring is around the corner!
