With phase 3 now in place, it allows us to have some fun and listen to music and have a meal with family and friends, all under the guidelines of the present day.

The Simmering Kettle and Dosti Eats in conjunction with Barrie Uncovered have arranged to put on a show for you. So if you are bored and looking for something to do, why not swing by and enjoy some great food and live music with Barrie’s own Kat Chabot? The event will be held at 531 Bryne Drive on Saturday, August 22, between 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm. This event will take place outside in between the two restaurants. So you have plenty of food to choose from!

Kat Chabot is a very popular local singer-songwriter from Barrie Ontario. Pre-pandemic days you could catch her performing all over Ontario’s Farmers Markets, local festivals, bars and restaurants, either performing solo or with Cardinal Street, a five-piece rock band. Spending her youth working in greenhouses, and growing up in a family band covering RUSH and Journey songs.

At Simmering Kettle, you will find comfort food at its finest. They have all-day breakfast options as well as other hearty meal options. Dosti eats is a mix of food from all over the world! They serve food from Mexico, pan Asian food, north American food, and some tasty dessert options and you can even have a cocktail.

So come along sit back and relax, have a great meal and listen to music, how good does that sound? All the food will be brought to your table by their friendly staff. Food will be available from both locations.

Please remember to bring your mask as they are mandatory if you plan on going inside to use the washrooms. Other COVID measures will be in place during the event so you can feel safe!

Uncover The Music Episode 17 – Scott Murray of the Highdives

In our latest episode, we chatted with Scott Murray of the Highdives!

We retraced his reluctant path to becoming a front man, recapped a huge 2019 and uncovered 5 truths, which included a confession about donut throwing during work.

This episode is exactly 31:47 and if you are easily offended, there are many swears.

Uncover The Music – Cousin Jack

In our latest episode we chatted with the crew from Cousin Jack!

We talked about the semi-roller coaster that was 2019, including releasing their first EP and undergoing some big lineup changes, about the unique historical meaning behind their name (it involves mines and rugby) and about why they’re probably blacklisted from playing a particular festival in Collingwood.

This episode is exactly 29:12 and if you are easily offended, there are plenty of swears.

The Best of Barrie 2019 Playlist

Barrie Concerts This Week


As we close out 2019, it’s time to look back on the killer lineup of new music we received this past year from Barrie’s talented music scene.

We got a TON of kick ass tuneage from the stalwarts, plus invigorating fresh cuts from new and emerging acts. Thanks to venues like the Foxx Lounge, Mavricks, Donaleigh’s, the Common Good Cafe and PLAY!, as well as smaller joints like Flying Monkey’s, McReilly’s and Homestead Artisan Bakery, Barrie’s musicians have more places to gig, and it’s quickly growing the local scene.

We’ll continue to encourage that growth in 2020 by covering and promoting the 705 music scene through playlist curation like this, as well as through podcasts, weekly concert blogs, and local music news. If you’re part of the Barrie music scene, and you are performing or producing original music, we want to know! Send us stuff about new releases, performance dates and video releases and we’ll be sure to talk it up. Either through FB or email to [email protected]

And please have a look and tell us about any 2019 drops that we missed!

*We looked at doing this through Bandcamp, because so many more artists have their stuff up there. But unfortunately they don’t offer playlist options, so Spotify is the best shareable option.

Now…let’s do this….
