Throwback Thursday // Big Shiny Tunes @ The Marquee // Feb.2023

Time flies when you’re having fun. Hard to believe that Big Shiny Tunes is over a month in our rear view mirror, but here we are.

Over two nights, a cavalcade of the province’s most talented musicians converged on the Marquee Ballroom to cover some beloved tunes from the legendary Big Shiny Tunes compilation series (think Gen-X K-Tel). This was the 2nd Big Shiny Tunes event organized by Stephanie Purcell and Dave Sampson and their talented team, and hopefully, we’ll see more events down the road. In the meantime, here’s the gallery of shots that were snapped over the two nights. Enjoy!
