The Baltimore House 43 King William Street

This was one of my dream shows come true! I first picked up on Stella Ella Ola when they released a few demos in 2012. The band features Nixon and Jake Boyd of Hollerado along with Anne Douris and Vince Rice. I loved their sound right away and immediately tweeted at them to come to Hamilton!

Fast forward to 2014 and Stella Ella Ola released their debut album, I Think We Should Hang Out All The Time. I was anxious to catch the band live, and was so thrilled to collaborate with them on their very first Hamilton show! The bill was rounded out by Marrakech, Ascot Royals, and Aukland, and I couldn’t have been luckier to secure this lineup. Once again, The Baltimore House was perfect and so lovely to work with. It was the best time!

I made a playlist for before/in between/after the bands and was pleased that people enjoyed it. Stream it here (I keep going back to it, too!)

I had the pleasure of booking four shows this year at Baltimore House and this was an awesome one to end my year with. I Heart Hamilton’s first show of 2015 is January 2nd back at Baltimore House. The Day After New Year’s Day Fest features rad local bands Two Stripes Down, Billy Moon, The Great Machine, and Dizzy Spells. [More info here!]

Hope to see you there!
