Poster Design: Dale McKie

Wow!  We're still riding the high of an incredible time, both performing and as audience members, at the Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival and savouring the amazing summer we've had, it's so hard to believe that it's coming to end.

Thankfully we've got the perfect end of summer show lined up for Saturday night and we're looking forward to being back "home" at The Haviland Club.  The incredible Kim Wempe will be joining us for the 11th instalment of the Amanda Jackson Band & Friends Concert Series and we couldn't be more excited!


All of the details can be found here.  Please join the event and let us know you're coming!  You won't want to miss it!

P.S. If you're at the show on Saturday, you'll be amongst the first to hear who our very special guest is for the season finale on November 26th!

Blues, Rock and the Classics!

When Amanda and Dale started writing some lyrics and melodies back in February of 2014 there were no restrictions of genres, no agenda, just a desire to write and compose whatever they were feeling.  As the band grew, so did the music and it continues to evolve as they work on their first studio album!  It has also led to opportunities to perform on many of the best Island stages and this next month brings the band to four very different stages across the Island! 

Starting at home base, The Haviland Club, on July 30th for a special blues night, then heading West to Tyne Valley on August 6th for Rock the Boat MusicFest, to the shores of North Rustico to perform at the beautiful Watermark Theatre on August 7th and then wrapping up the month on August 20th at the always awesome Trailside Music Café & Inn in Mount Stewart!  Click the links below for more details!




Saturday, August 6th - Rock the Boat MusicFest


The Music of Leonard Cohen & Gordon Lightfoot


Saturday, August 20th - The Trailside Music Café & Inn

We'd also like to send a big thank you and shout to Colleen McKie of Savvy Fox Author Services for writing our new bio and to Kelsey Osborne of La Fougèrie Photography for our new promo photos!  Check out our new About Us section!  Kelsey

AJB & Friends Featuring Nick Doneff - June 4th!

The 9th installment of the AJB & Friends Concert Series brings the very talented young, singer-songwriter, Nick Doneff, to The Haviland Club stage!


Since relocating to Charlottetown from Ontario in 2013, Nick has become an active member of the Island's music community as a sideman for artists such as Nudie, Liam Corcoran, and Meaghan Blanchard. Nick has also begun emerging under his own name with a growing catalogue of original songs that pull audiences in with a quirky brand of sincerity and the relatability of a true old-soul.


For those unfamiliar with the format, Nick will start the night out with his set and we will join him on a couple of songs of his choice. After a break, we'll hit the stage with a full set and then Nick will join us for a couple of our song choices!

Admission is $15.00 (cash only) at the door and we will begin accepting payments no later than 7:30pm. You will be provided a number for seating order but there are no assigned seats (first come-first serve). Please feel free to come earlier to enjoy a drink and social time!


Doors will be open for seating by 7:45pm with show starting at 8:00pm!

We've been waiting far too long to have this incredible singer-songwriter join us for a night at The Haviland!

A singer-songwriter based in Canada's smallest province, Drea MacDonald is a crafter of pop/folk songs with a confessional slant. She'll make you tap your toes and test your heartstrings at the same time.  Her newest album "Lucky" was just released in November of 2015 and is a return to the folk/rock sound of her early recordings. If you can't wait until the show to grab a physical copy of the recording, you can preview it and grab it on iTunes today.

For those of you unfamiliar with the format of these shows, Drea will start the night out with her set and we will join her on a couple of songs of her choice. After a break, we'll hit the stage with a full set and then Drea will join us for a couple of our song choices!

P.S. Reggie will be back from his travels so be sure to come out and give him a hug!

Admission is $15.00 at the door and we will begin accepting payments no later than 7:30pm. You will be provided a number for seating order but there are no assigned seats (first come-first serve). 

Please feel free to come earlier to enjoy a drink and social time! Doors will be open for seating by 7:45pm with show starting at 8:00pm!
