Onyx News
Summer 2011

Summer sure does slip by; and, just when we were really getting into the swing of things…family time, BBQs, golf, beach/pool, various music festivals, vacations, cottage.  No real complaints, just wishing it could last longer.

As is usual with ONYX, we take it easy in the summer and get rested up for our anticipated busy fall/winter/spring season. This year is shaping up to be more of the same. Bookings are already in place into early 2012 and we’re just getting started. A new relationship with an on-line booking agency from the western US has the potential to add some new dimensions to our schedule.


In addition to regular weekly rehearsals, ONYX is continually looking at opportunities for improving our entertainment program, including partnering with musicians of other genres as well as vocal and visual coaching. This fall we will be planning for the addition of several new songs to our Repertoire…some traditional in the a cappella style, others more contemporary with accompaniment.

We are working towards a new musical variety show, planned for sometime in the first half of 2012, that will appeal to all family members. Adding to our presentation will be the pedal steel artistry of Wayne Hill and lead guitar support from Steve McCaffrey (Yes. They are related to two of our members.) A special guest performance will be announced later.

Your inquiries are always welcome: birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, receptions, retail,  corporate, institutional and community events. Please give us as much advance notice as possible.
We can be reached at our Contact Page or at 905 235 5893.
