Local Flavours - Vintage Coffee Roasters

While owner, Jesslyn Collins is fairly new on the scene in Hamilton, she’s a veteran when it comes to food and wine. Her love of great wines translates perfectly into coffee. Discovering the flavours and nuances of specialty coffee has been an ongoing education with endless rewards, certainly with no end in sight as she shares her experience through her work. Vintage Coffee Roasters provides freshly roasted, ethically sourced coffee as well as many sweet and savoury treats. Look for them at The Vintage Marketplace, where they will be serving an assortment of unique beverages and a wide array of flavours to provide sustenance for a busy day of shopping!

DJ Donna Lovejoy

DJ Donna Lovejoy knows music. With over 15 years of experience on the wheels of steel, she has built a rock solid reputation, along with a pretty awesome vinyl and digital music collection courtesy of In Yer Ear, Dr. Disc and Cheapies. First inspired by the DJs at the underground raves of her youth, Lovejoy learned the art of mixing and blending records to create soundscapes to suit just about any type of party. Her success lies in her thoughtful approach to each unique event and her ability to weave several genres together in a single evening: Hip Hop, Disco, Motown, Retro, R&B, Electronic, Soul, Rock and everything inbetween!

Yes guys, that means that there will be haircuts … and beer. Cheers.
The Vaudevillian 10

The Vaudevillian

“The Vaudevillian create the rusty ol’ 1920’s tunes that get ye off your darn caboose, stomping along, and doing the skoodle um skoo! With their steel guitar, bull fiddle, washboard, car horn & kazoos, you’ll think you’re at an old hidden speakeasy! Be sure to shine your shoes and bring your best tobacco, and get ready to enjoy a night filled with top shelf whiskey, saucy talking back and some wild waltzing!”
