On Friday, August 25th we're so excited to welcome Alfie Zappacosta back to our live music stage.

Alfie Zappacosta is undeniably one of Canada's premier songwriters and performers with chart topping hits and a recording and acting career that has spanned 40 years. He continues to evolve as an artist by “doing it his way”, an effort that has been rewarded with an impressive song catalogue and a discerning loyal fan base.

Alfie Zappacosta decided on a music career in his teens and set his sights upon being a guitarist. When his vocal dexterity and song writing proficiency were uncovered by a publisher while writing for his first original band “Surrender”, events would be put in motion to champion Zappacosta (dropping his first name) as a solo artist and bring him to the world's attention. «Start Again”, “Passion”, When I Fall in Love Again” and “Nothing Can Stand In Your Way” became staples on Canadian adult contemporary radio and Zappacosta became a personified Rock Star.

In 1987, Walt Disney's Danger Bay would bring Zappacosta an episode written specifically for him titled „Rock Star“. In the same year, he penned and sang „Overload“ exclusively for the multi-platinum soundtrack „Dirty Dancing“ and Loverboy would record Zappacosta's „That's Where The Money Goes“ for their Wildside album. In 1988, he was awarded JUNOs for „Album of The Year' and “Most Promising Artist”, an American Music Award for “Most Popular Album of The Year» and named the Canadian Publishers Music Association's «Best Rock Star».
