ZED Talk: Love Hate Theory

It's our first ZED Talk, a Zoetic original event focussed on creative growth and development... and of course fun! This talk is aimed at burgeoning amateurs and growth-driven professional musicians alike. It's an educational workshop, Zoetic-style.

LOVE HATE THEORY
Three Steps to understanding, and using, music theory by professional musician and instructor Nathan Fleet. Consider it Nathan's bag of tricks to help you write and understand music better and faster.

“Tools, not rules” is Nathan’s motto when it comes to learning about music theory. Music theory can be easy to learn and VERY creative, if you have the right teacher and tools. 

Nathan has helped over 1,000,000 musicians worldwide with his easy to understand music lessons. Everything Nathan teaches, he will be able to show, by example, on stage using a piano, guitar and voice. 

The video screen will be on so everyone in the audience will get that up-close view. 

As an added bonus, everyone attending will get a free chord / scale chart. “The Chart” has been viewed over 1,000,000 times on YouTube and hundreds have been sold around the world. 

You are encouraged to ask questions (there are no bad questions when you are learning) and please bring your instrument with you as it is often easier to relate these lessons when your instrument is right there. (We ask that you save your noodling for the breaks)

It's years of study packed into a 3-Hour session! 

Sunday, May 27th
1-4pm
Tons of value for $35 per person (plus HST)

IN DETAIL:

Hour 1
THE BASICS
You DON'T have to learn to read music to understand theory
Every note in music (there are only 12)
What is the major scale and why is it so important
Chord / scale relationships

Learn and understand Modes
Understanding “Jazz” chords (chords that have 7s, 9s, 11s and 13s in the name) 

Hour 2
THE CREATIVE
Song writing with major and minor keys and chords
How to change key
How to harmonize any melody, in many different ways

BREAK

Hour 3
THE EXAMPLE
Nathan will perform some original songs but will explain what theory is happening, but more importantly how YOU can do this with your own songs. 

How to take a simple 3-Chord song and enhance it

An Afternoon with Medium Sherry Gallant

IMG_0246.jpg

The death of a loved one is one of life’s most difficult experiences. The struggle with many intense and frightening emotions, including depression, anger, and guilt.  Feeling isolated and alone in your grief, but having someone to lean on can help you through the grieving process.

In this live event, Sherry will validate messages from loved ones who have crossed over to members of the audience and educate them that our loved ones are always with us.

  She creates a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere in order to ensure a peaceful and spiritual experience. She continues to encourage her skeptics to not let discomfort prevent them from receiving validation and loving messages from their loved ones who have crossed over.

Sherry brings comfort, hope and closure to people who are grieving the loss of their loved ones.  She continues to help countless people. Having suffered a tremendous amount of grief herself, Sherry understands the emptiness inside.  Her inspiration and motivational communications with the spirit world has truly been unbelievable.

Validating messages to those grieving and helping them find peace is the most rewarding for Sherry.  The closure and comfort her clients find is what keeps Sherry moving forward feeling fulfilled and grateful to have such a special gift.

The Greatest Showman Sing-Along!

greatest-sing-along.jpg

You asked, we delivered! It's finally here - The Greatest Showman Sing-Along! What a great way to end our Sing-Along season - with a bang! This Oscar-nominated, Golden Globe-winning musical is the beautiful, dazzling story of PT Barnum's circus beginnings with the catchiest music you can imagine, starring Hugh Jackman and Michelle Williams.

Don't know the words? No worry, we'll have them onscreen.

Plus, we've got prop bags available to take your experience to the next level! Prop Bags include novelty items relevant to the film, edible treats and fun collectibles!

We will of course have our Signature Cocktails available and be sure to dress up for a Circus Costume Contest!

The story: 
Orphaned, penniless but ambitious and with a mind crammed with imagination and fresh ideas, the American Phineas Taylor Barnum will always be remembered as the man with the gift to effortlessly blur the line between reality and fiction. Thirsty for innovation and hungry for success, the son of a tailor will manage to open a wax museum but will soon shift focus to the unique and peculiar, introducing extraordinary, never-seen-before live acts on the circus stage. Some will call Barnum's wide collection of oddities, a freak show; however, when the obsessed showman gambles everything on the opera singer Jenny Lind to appeal to a high-brow audience, he will somehow lose sight of the most important aspect of his life: his family. Will Barnum risk it all to be accepted?

POESY: Live in Concert

The Zoetic is proud to present POESY: Live in Concert. A winning artist from CTV's The Launch, POESY has been top 40 for eight weeks with "Soldier of Love" (which is also the promo song for TV's This Is Us). Not only is she an incredible musical talent, but she's also a hard-working inspiration, and we're honoured to bring POESY to Hamilton's Funky Vintage Theatre.

Between her mononymous name and her distinctive, powerful voice, there’s something truly mysterious about POESY.

After writing her first song at age 9, POESY has been making a name for herself on Canada's music scene, sharing the stage with acts such as Hollerado, Sloan, FeFe Dobson and Mother Mother. Her songwriting is inspired by literature, 1970s rock, thrift stores, and bus rides, while her sound and style is inspired by the likes of Freddie Mercury for his charisma, Stevie Nicks for her enchantment, Dolores O’Riordan for her power, and Kurt Cobain for his honest raw lyrics.

Get ready for a powerful night of music.

Friday, May 11 at 8pm
VIP Seating available for this event

CALLING ALL MUSICIANS: We're excited to create an opportunity for burgeoning new musicians with an open call for an Opening Act. Send us your audition video by April 27 and POESY will help us choose her opening performer!

Crystal Journey New Year's Eve

On the eve of a Full Moon, David Hickey's Crystal Journey will welcome in the New Year with a special focus on raising your positivity as you enter a new chapter in your life. Known for a powerful, hypnotic sound that blends international instruments such as Paiste Planet Gongs, Quartz Crystal Bowls and Persian Santour - Crystal Journey is a one-of-a-kind experience in the Meditative/Sound World.

The first set will focus on the parallel energies of the "Summer of Love" 1967 and 2017 by touching on the music, peace, social and environmental issues of the day. The second set will be a chance for all of us to set new goals, uncover new energies and to connect with a whole new way of being. In 1968 the energy was dramatically altered just as it will be in 2018. The idea that we cannot continue in the old way and expect things to be different or better... It's time for a whole new makeover.

Elf: The Epic Experience

We're kicking off the holiday season with a fun twist on a seasonal favourite! Experience the movie Elf like never before, with our signature Quote-Along, Sing-Along, Prop Bags, Costume Contest, and Specialty Drinks for young and old. 

About the movie: A human baby raised as an elf heads to New York City to find his place in the world, and track down his father. But life in the big city is not all sugarplums and candy canes. His father is a "Scrooge" and his eight-year-old stepbrother doesn't believe in Santa. Even the snowmen aren't friendly in New York.

Live Concert Celebration: Liteyears, Mike Maas, Wild Night

We're celebrating 90 years of entertainment in Hamilton with a rocking hometown concert by Liteyears, Mike Maas & The Late Night Lineup, and Wild Night. With open arms, this city has long embraced music and art of all styles, genres and mediums from artists of all walks of life and given them a voice. Since 1927, The Zoetic Theatre venue has given those voices the opportunity to be heard.

Come celebrate a favourite hometown venue and an amazing line-up of local artists on November 25th and help us prove why Hamilton is the best city in the world!

LITEYEARS:
Hailing from Hamilton, Ontario, LITEYEARS is a pop band on the rise that’s been quickly making a name for themselves on Canada’s national stage. Drawing from a diverse sonic palette ranging from cinematic orchestral arrangements reminiscent of a Hans Zimmer film score to the electronic sensibilities of modern pop music, LITEYEARS has created an honest representation of themselves and their musical tastes: high energy, anthemic alternative-pop with depth.

MIKE MAAS & THE LATE NIGHT LINEUP:
Led by Hamilton native and veteran singer-songwriter Mike Maas , Mike Maas & The Late Night Lineup is a confident pop rock blend of earthy acoustic and echoing ambient soundscapes. With Maas’ powerful and emotive voice at the forefront, the band’s infectious and masterfully-written ballads draw influence from the likes of Coldplay, U2 and The Beatles.

WILD NIGHT:
Wild Night hail from the smoke stacks of Hamilton, Ontario. They play rock and roll like their lives depend on it because, while they were growing up, they did. Carrying the echoes of their parents’ records, Wild Night are out to revive the heart and spirit of everything good that is gone.


Since 1927, The Zoetic Theatre has been a landmark on Hamilton Mountain offering everything from vaudeville to cinema to live performance. Alongside the theatre’s 90th anniversary, The Zoetic itself heads into its fifth year as an arts and entertainment organization. Join us for this live concert celebration!

Hamilton Film Festival: Rust and Bone & Author Craig Davidson

rust and bone.jpg

Presented by GritLit and the Hamilton Film Festival

RUST AND BONE

It all begins in the North of France. Ali suddenly finds himself with a five year-old child on his hands. Sam is his son, but he hardly knows him. Homeless, penniless and friendless, Ali takes refuge with his sister in Antibes. There things improve immediately. She puts them up in her garage, she takes the child under her wing and the weather is glorious. Ali first runs into Stephanie during a night club brawl. He drives her home and leaves her his phone number. He is poor, she is beautiful and self-assured, a princess: his complete opposite. Stephanie trains killer whales at Marineland. When a performance ends in tragedy, a call in the night again brings them together. When Ali sees her next, his princess is confined to a wheel chair: she has lost her legs and quite a few illusions. He simply helps her, with no compassion or pity. And she comes alive again.

AFTER THE FILM

Craig Davidson will be available for a Q&A and will be selling and signing his new book, Precious Cargo. CRAIG DAVIDSON was born and grew up in St. Catharines, Ontario, near Niagara Falls. He has published three previous books of literary fiction: Rust and Bone, which was made into an Oscar-nominated feature film of the same name, The Fighter, and Sarah Court. Davidson is a graduate of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, and his articles and journalism have been published in the National Post, Esquire, GQ, The Walrus, and The Washington Post, among other places. He lives in Toronto, Canada, with his partner and their child.

This film deals with the impact of the seige, and a concert that almost didn't happen.

After the film we will celebrate with a local band performing their brand of Heavy Metal, with perhaps a few inspiring tunes related to the film!

Hamilton Film Festival: That Never Happened

friday1.jpg

THAT NEVER HAPPENED (Ryan Boyko / Documentary / Hamilton / 75min) reveals the story of Canada’s first national internment operations between 1914 - 1920, when over 88,000 people were forced to register and more than 8,500 were wrongfully imprisoned in concentration camps across Canada, not for anything they had done but because of where they came from. In 1954, the public records were destroyed and in the 1980s a few brave men and women began working to reclaim this chapter in history and ensure future generations would know about it. TRAILER

An Evening with Medium Sherry Gallant

The death of a loved one is one of life’s most difficult experiences. The struggle with many intense and frightening emotions, including depression, anger, and guilt.  Feeling isolated and alone in your grief, but having someone to lean on can help you through the grieving process.

In this live event, Sherry will validate messages from loved ones who have crossed over to members of the audience and educate them that our loved ones are always with us.   

She creates a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere in order to ensure a peaceful and spiritual experience. She continues to encourage her sceptics to not let discomfort prevent them from receiving validation and loving messages from their loved ones who have crossed over.

Sherry brings comfort, hope and closure to people who are grieving the loss of their loved ones.  She continues to help countless people. Having suffered a tremendous amount of grief herself, Sherry understands the emptiness inside.  Her inspiration and motivational communications with the spirt world has truly been unbelievable.
