Coney Hatch w/Special Guests: The Iron Maidens

September 10 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

Formed in Toronto during 1980, Coney Hatch was named after the infamous psychiatric hospital in Muswell Hill, a suburb of London , UK (spelt Colney Hatch) that bassist Andy Curran’s parents lived near before emigrating to Canada. In 1981, an ad was placed in the Toronto Star, looking for a singer/guitarist to join a working band with management.

Singer/guitarist Carl Dixon joined Andy, drummer Dave Ketchum, guitarist Steve Shelski, and on they went to release a kickass Kim Mitchell-produced debut album in 1982, ‘Coney Hatch’ (certified Gold in Canada), that resounded through the rock world and launched the group’s career to rock fans around the world. The Hatch toured with some of the biggest names in rock such as Peter Frampton, Ted Nugent, Edgar Winter, Cheap Trick, and lengthy stints with opening for Judas Priest (27+ shows) and Iron Maiden (40+ shows).

In 2014, the Hatch line-up changed, adding lead guitarist Sean Kelly (Lee Aaron, Nelly Furtado, Crash Kelly) to bring new life into those brilliant riffs. Coney Hatch toured with Steve Harris’s British Lion to packed venues in November 2018, followed by a December appearance to rock Germany’s HEAT Festival, and in 2019, returned to Bully Les Mines in France in 2019, and a year later, to the classic El Mocambo in Toronto and AGAIN in 2022 to mark the 40th anniversary of their debut album. Their incredible live show was recorded and mixed for release titled ‘Postcard from Germany.’ The impending release on EXP1 Records includes two smoking hot new studio tracks, “Heaven’s On The Other Side” and the single “It’s About A Girl”. Coney Hatch received rave reviews for their set at Sweden Rock 2023. Straight off the bat from that they released the new music video for “It’s About A Girl”. Forty + years since their first hit and they’re still knocking it out of the park.
