From Niagara Falls Review:
For High Valley singer Brad Rempel, it was a far cry from his last visit to Niagara Falls.
Before hitting the stage at Queen Victoria Park on New Year’s Eve, he recalled being so broke he stayed in a dingy hotel room that didn’t have a phone or TV, “ and had knife stab marks in the door to the bathroom.”
This time? While walking around the Falls with his family he came across a poster of himself: “That was cool.”
Midway through the band’s set, he soaked it all in. “This is easily the best view from the stage we’ve ever had.”

From the Niagara Falls Review:
Canadian rockers Serena Ryder and The Sam Roberts Band will headline this year’s free New Year’s Eve concert at Queen Victoria Park.
And if it seems like deja vu, that’s because both performers played the show just three years ago.
That concert, headlined by U.S. pop star Demi Lovato, was the second last time the show would be aired on Canadian TV. Following the 2014 event, headlined by Keith Urban, Global backed out of the broadcast, citing cost concerns.
Last year’s downsized concert featured Tom Cochrane, Dennis DeYoung and Alan Doyle, all of whom have played the show before.
But bringing back Ryder and Roberts isn’t a case of ‘familiarity breeds contempt,’ said Niagara Falls Mayor Jim Diodati. Both acts are proven crowd favourites.
