(The Hayloft Dancehall, Prince Edward County)
The owners of the Hayloft are smart business folks and have a no bs approach, and zero interest in stupidity that results with an over abundance of alcohol consumption. They have a shuttle bus that does 2 round trips from the large villages in the county, resulting in less drinking and driving, and less loitering into the twilight.
Did I mention they are a live music venue? No DJs kids, meaning during set breaks, the house music is turned down, allowing one to engage in a conversation with others, and highlighting the band is the main attraction. They have already announced a number of great acts (we've already seen the The Mercenaries, a great dance band, and Juno winners, The Strumbellas) and Rockstar and I are anxiously hoping they book Joel Plaskett. Wouldn't that be awesome? Joel Plaskett in a barn? And when they do book Joel, Rockstar will execute the plea of his life to get an opening slot.
What's also resulted from the opening of the Hayloft, is the number of bands/musicians being booked into our B&B. Our vision when opening the B&B was to not only caterer to families and dog owners, but to target musicians traveling through. And here we are, in the start of our second year, and that's what's happening, thanks to the Hayloft. Musicians = late breakfast. Woot!

When you come visit the county, be sure to check out the upcoming schedule at The Hayloft. And when they book Joel Plaskett, I will let you all know, so we can plan the ultimate sleep over at Casa Kelly.
(PS, there has been zero news about Joel Plaskett coming to Prince Edward County, but when he does, the only place he should play is The Hayloft). Pin It
