Burton Cummings and Band
June 1, 8:00 PM, Casino Regina Show Lounge
One of the most celebrated artists in Canadian history, Cummings’ remarkable career as a performer, singer, songwriter and recording artist has spanned over five decades and garnered a myriad of awards and accolades, including seven JUNO Awards.
In April 2016, Cummings will be inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame at the 2016 JUNO Awards. Cummings is a member of the Canadian Music Hall of Fame through his band, The Guess Who (inducted in 1987).
With Canada’s original rock ‘n’ roll superstars The Guess Who, Cummings, as lead singer and songwriter, scored an unprecedented string of international hit singles and albums. Striking out on his own in 1976, Cummings continued his winning streak with a gold record for his debut solo single, “Stand Tall” produced by legendary hit-maker Richard Perry, who numbered among his clients including Barbra Streisand, Carly Simon and Ringo Starr. The choice of producer was evidence of Cummings’ star power in the music industry. He followed that with more than a dozen hit singles and albums including “I’m Scared”, “I Will Play a Rhapsody”, “Timeless Love”, “Break It To Them Gently”, “Fine State of Affairs”, “You Saved My Soul”, “My Own Way To Rock” and “Dream Of A Child”.
Sold out tours across Canada and the United States solidified Cummings’ stature as a top attraction. He starred in several top-rated television specials and earned five JUNO Awards between 1977 and 1980. His 1978 album, Dream Of A Child became the first quadruple platinum-selling album by a Canadian artist. Through the ‘80s and ‘90s Cummings continued to tour and joined The Beatles drummer Ringo Starr in his All Starr Band.
