A Night in the Lane returns for a fifth year

 Chuck Jackson is one of Canada’s best singers and entertainers, a two-time winner of the top blues vocalist of the year. The co-founder of the Southside Shuffle in Port Credit is one of Canada’s best performers, serving up a heaping helping of blues favourites, including the hit single, Flip, Flop & Fly.

The long time lead singer of the Downchild Blue Band will be front and centre stage with band mates Chuck Tyler and Patrick Carey at the fifth annual “A Night in the Lane” in downtown Brampton on Thursday, Sept. 22 (6 to 9 p.m.).

The night of music, food, fun and meet and greet with local retailers of downtown Brampton, takes place in McArter Lane (between Main St. and the Nelson St. parking garage).

“It will be a fabulous night to show off one of the seven laneways that help make downtown Brampton such a special place,” says Suzy Godefroy, head of the Brampton Business Improvement Association (BIA). “A Night in the Lane is always a highlight of the fall season in the downtown.”

Deborah Kenny, one of the organizers, is also thrilled that Jackson is returning to play Brampton. “He’s a pro’s pro when it comes to entertaining the fans,” she says. “It’s a real coup having him perform in front of his many fans.”

Kenny is owner of Deborah Kenny Jewellery, located in McArter Lane. Debbi Visser, owner of Stems Floral Studio, is located right beside her, and notes that the annual event just keeps getting more community involvement. “All our retailers have stepped up to help put on this great evening. It’s a chance for visitors to meet and greet retailers, enjoy a night of fabulous entertainment, and taste some fabulous food and drink.”

Enlivening public spaces is part of Brampton BIA’s mandate, and A Night in the Lane has signed one of the country’s best performers to ensure that happens.

Alongside Deborah Kenney Jewellery and Stems Floral Studio, A Night in the Lane is sponsored by the Downtown Brampton BIA and the City of Brampton. .
