Scotiabank’s Midnight Madness 2014 in Downtown Oakville is one of the hottest events in the GTA. With nine stages featuring top-tier entertainment, open-air patios serving up delicious fare, activities that will excite the whole family and first-class shopping, there is no other place you’ll want to be on Friday, July 18th than Downtown Oakville.

The festivities start at 6:00 PM and go ’till midnight. Here’s what is happening!

Stage 1 (closest to Navy Street) features The Mike Branton Band with Wayne Deadder on Bass and Shawn Abedin on drums. Branton just loves the blues and has played with the who’s who of Canadian and American blues musicians.

It’s classic rock the way it was meant to be.
