Introducing our new music programming residencies at The Drake Hotel! We're adding to our already stacked roster of Good Enough live karaoke, The Digs, and weekly underground dance parties. Whatever your music flavour there will be a night just for you. Joining the Drake family are vinyl dj's, a live saxophonist and dj (playing your favourite throwbacks) and finally a be-yourself-anything-goes dance party presented by our friends Collectif Nude.

The Stars align for Memphis Tuesdays

Posted by Lynn Sullivan, 3 months ago

Memphis Tuesdays is Drake Devonshire's version of open mic night. Once a week, locals and visitors of Prince Edward County gather in the Pavillion and the stage forms to give way to the best (or simply bravest) of PEC talent. The invitation to perform is extended to visitors to the County and lucky for us, the County draws some fantastic company. Read the recap of one special night as Lyn Sullivan of Rosehall Run remembers it!

What do July Talk, Vance Joy and Broods all have in common? They once played the Drake Underground and are now headlining huge festivals and playing venues like the legendary Massey Hall. From local bands to acts around the globe, The Drake Underground is a mecca for discovering local artists and up + coming acts from around the world. We may be underground but we don’t live under a rock - and we want to share artists on our radar, coming through the basement this fall.
