THE TREWS VISIT & BAYFEST...

It was a music packed weekend at Cheeky Monkey during the first weekend of Bayfest 2011. On Friday a couple of members from THE TREWS stopped buy to do a little shopping. The guys were happy to pose with their new musical treasures on their way out. They also signed a some Trews CD's we had in stock for a few lucky customers.

First up was Dayna Manning who is originally from Stratford, but she now lives in B.C. Dayna has recorded three albums of beautifully crafted songs the most recent being “Folkyo” which you can purchase here at Cheeky Monkey. Her talent as a guitar player is matched by her singing voice creating heartfelt warm songs to be enjoyed over and over again.
