Andre Pettipas will be heading to the Chedabucto Place Performance Centre in Guysborough on May 27th for an evening of music and story telling. Bring the family along and hear the stories behind Andre’s original music and some of his favourite covers.

This event is open to all ages.

Andre can usually be found fronting his band, Andre Pettipas and The Giants who are busy making a name for themselves in the local area.

Sing along anthem songs with ear worm hooks that will reel you in and release you into a musical wave of vintage rock n’ roll attitude combined with 90’s rock/pop sound. Summer 2016 was a busy summer.

The band toured the east coast of Canada with multiple festival stops including Granville Green (Port Hawkesbury), Jubilee (New Glasgow), Music Mountain (Thorburn), Parlee Beach Music Festival (Shediac, New Brunswick), and an opening slot at the Meghan Trainor show in Port Hawkesbury to name a few. During this time they grabbed a number 1 single on the East Coast Countdown with their hit, “Long Way From Home” ft Ashley MacIsaac. The band were also finalists in the Casino Nova Scotia Artist In Residence competition.

“There is only one word that comes to mind when you see Andre on stage… showman. Musical talent aside this young man has presence that is reminiscent of a young Brian Setzer, working the stage and the room with an irresistible charisma.” – B Lynn Hartling//Canadian Beats
