Slated to become an annual Labour Day weekend event celebrating hardworking labourers across all industries, The S’Aints will rock the Leamington Amphitheatre on Saturday, September 3rd, 2022.

Pretested by St. Clair College and produced by The Bank Theatre in partnership with the Municipality of Leamington, the concert kicks off with special guest Peter Raffoul at 7:30pm.

“St. Clair College is pleased to expand The S’Aints – “Sleighing Hunger” campaign to include a summer concert. Many people in our community continue to experience financial difficulties with the current inflationary challenges. Although we are busy working towards our annual Christmas event, it is important we respond to the current urgent needs, and there’s no better setting on Labour Day weekend than Leamington’s SUNSET® Amphitheatre in Seacliff Park.,” said Ron Sequin, Vice President, International Relations, Campus Development & Student Services.

Known for their philanthropic concerts during the holiday season at Caesars Windsor, The S’Aints founder’s Jeff Burrows and Jody Raffoul teamed up once again to benefit the Windsor-Essex community and to also attract concert-goers throughout the southwest Ontario region to what could become an annual music fest featuring a diverse list of artists.

“What a great way to celebrate the contributions of hardworking people in our community with some of the best musical talent in the region,” said Leamington Mayor Hilda MacDonald. “We are thrilled to host these artists at our Amphitheatre and look forward to this becoming an annual celebration.”

Opening the show at 7:30 pm is local favourite Peter Raffoul. Now based in Nashville, Peter has a singer/songwriter approach to alternative music. Originally from Leamington, Peter makes songs that often touch on vulnerability and imperfection, trying to let listeners know that it’s alright if you’re not alright.

Don’t miss this all-ages, free, un-ticketed outdoor event. Bring a lawn chair or blanket and set it up on the lawn for the show. If the weather becomes inclement, the concert will be held on Sunday, September 4th.
