CNE Midway Stage Concerts 2015

The CNE Bandshell Stage is the place to catch some of the major Musicians and Bands passing thru Toronto.

The CNE Midway Stage features concerts from more local talent.

Actually the CNE Midway Stage is more like a huge outdoor bar with a really nice big stage.

The sound quality is just as good at the CNE Midway Stage.

I personally think that the guys handling the “Stage Lighting” at the CNE Midway Stage are way better at it,  than the folks controlling the Lights at the CNE Bandshell.

Last year I would enjoy and shoot the CNE Bandshell concert and when that was finished, I would head over to the CNE Midway Stage to catch the last set. Made for many fun CNE nights of amazing music.

Ok, enough of my rambling. The CNE Midway Stage Concerts 2015 list follows:

On Aug 18 2014, the Paul James Band performed at the CNE Midway Stage, with multiple sets.

The Paul James Band is made up of talented musicians. What sets them apart from most other bands is Paul James, their Lead Singer, Guitarist and Front-man. Paul is a great musician, who knows how to entertain and work the audience.

Concerts are not only about the sound. People can listen to  a radio, to hear sound. They go to “see” and hear the musicians. A great performance must include visual components. The Paul James Band offers up superb sound, along with fun to watch performance. Great stuff and not commonly seen.

I was surprised when he ask female fans to join him on stage. It looked liked the Security guy were also surprised. The Audience loved that gesture.

IMHO the lighting on the Midway Stage is way better, than the lighting on the CNE Bandshell Stage. No dark shadows being cast onto the Musician’s faces…

Wednesday’s Engine is made up of extremely good Musicians. Great band to kick back and listen to, while partaking in a few Brewskys with friends.
