Canadian crooner Monty Greig adds his voice to ‘Vaudeville Valentine’ in Shelburne on Feb. 12

Monty Greig, a smooth Canadian Crooner played on radio stations across Canada, will perform live in Shelburne this Sunday as the star of My Vaudeville Valentine.

Romantics looking for a great date night can still get tickets to see Monty and a cast of seven other performers in the dinner theatre show at the recently renovated dinning room at the Shelburne Curling Club.

Originally the lead singer of a rock band, Monty Greig “fell in love with the Rat Pack style of music and entertaining while working in Las Vegas.  When he returned home, he started his “journey in jazz standards” and produced three albums. He has never looked back.

For five years now, Monty Greig has been entertaining audiences’ with his Crooner Show and “breathing new life into classic jazz standards from the best in the business.”

Sohayla Smith, the force behind Shelburne’s community arts group Troupe-Adore, which is producing My Vaudeville Valentine, says Monty Greig will bring a real “Frank Sinatra vibe to the show” with “his amazing voice and personality as a professional performer.”

“I try and support anyone who is trying to build on an arts dream,” says Monty Greig. “I met Troupe-Adore on Facebook and we started chatting back and forth. I think what they are doing is fantastic, and when Sohayla Smith asked if I would join them, I was more than happy to oblige.”

Monty will be singing some of his favourite tunes at My Vaudeville Valentine including: “Feeling Good,” “For Once in My Life,” and “That Amore” in keeping with the romantic theme of the show.

Sohayla Smith says, “My Vaudeville Valentine is going to be eclectic and amazingly fun for both the performers and the guests alike. Each dinner event we put on is also a culinary expression of art. I’m very proud of how hard our small group of dedicated, like-minded people work together to see projects like this through.”

My Vaudeville Valentine starring Monty Greig along with Sohayla Smith, Darcey Baker, Jason Reidel, Danielle Marie Gamache, Desmond Baxter, Claire Bouzane and Jacob Wagstaff features a variety of vaudeville song and dance acts.

The performance is served up with a delicious five course gourmet meal – a perfect romantic evening close to home on February 12th at the Curling Club on Owen Sound Street in Shelburne. Tickets $40 each – limited seating www.eventbrite.com.
