Canada Rocks: The Best of our Homegrown Rock and Pop - May 26, 2017
Arguably in true Canadian fashion, it was almost only in structuring this production, or its predecessor "Frozen Trax", that we realized the massive worldwide impact Canadian songwriters, vocalists and bands have had on pop/rock music internationally over the past 50+ years. With three of our strongest performers at the helm offering up such gems as “These Eyes” by The Guess Who, Leonard Cohen's incredible “Hallelujah”, “After The Gold Rush” by Neil Young, and much more, we are thrilled and very proud to offer up this taste of our homeland.


The Best of the Music of the Eagles - August 18, 2016

From “Desperado” and “Hotel California” to the “End of the Innocence”, this is one of Jeans 'n Classics most popular shows featuring the music that came from one of the world's most loved bands. 

Women of Rock - October 6, 2016  

Five decades of some of the most dynamic and influential women in rock and pop music are masterfully presented by four of Jeans 'n Classics incredible female vocalists. Power, soul, energy and the ability to beautifully cross over decades of genres and styles permeate their extraordinary performances in this wonderful new production.
