Canadian rock legend Kim Mitchell will play the stage at Moose and Goose Nightclub in Thorold on May 12.

A true Canadian rock legend will be doing his “rock and roll duty” on the stage of Moose and Goose Nightclub in Thorold on May 12.

At a capacity of nearly 1,000, Moose and Goose is the region’s largest nightclub and is bringing Mitchell in as part of its 35th Anniversary Concert Series.

To most Canadians, the Sarnia-born Patio Lanterns singer needs little introduction. From the early 1970s to 1982, he was the front-man for the iconic Max Webster Band, who cranked out Canadian gold, such asHangover, High Class in Borrowed Shoes, Diamonds, Diamonds and Paradise Skies.

Little Known Fact: Max Webster’s name came from the group’s bass player Mike Tilka, who was in a band called Family At Mac’s and they did a song called ‘Webster’.

When Mitchell went solo in 1982, dissolving Max Webster as a band, the hits came fast and furious: Lager & Ale, Go For A Soda, All We Are, Rock ‘n’ Roll Duty, Rockland Wonderland and good-time anthem, I Am A Wild Party.

The Moose and Goose (54 Paul De Divitiis Sr. Way) has brought some of rock’s biggest names to their stage over the years, including Meatloaf, Vince Neil, Blue Rodeo, Sum 41, Glorious Sons, Billy Talent, Burton Cummings, The Headstones, The Trews, Theory Of a Deadman, Finger 11 and Foreigner.
