SINGS SONGS FOR MOMMA,
ACCOMPANIED BY
 DAVE RESTIVO ON PIANO
 &  MARTIN LOOMER ON GUITAR

Rita's voice is quite addictive, as you know, sweet and throaty and moments of Krall and Holiday and she swings hard!!

This evening will be old school jazz standards from  thirties and forties, celebrating Mom's favorite songs and era. Feel free to bring your female loved ones to this homage to estrogen!!I Rita  may sing some of her "Parlour Songs" once she (and Mom) loosen up.

Dave and Marty are the perfect souls to share the bandstand!! Martin has an  Ellington/Miller tribute band . He will add the perfect flavour with his tasty guitar solos. No bass, no drums, we are playing it light and easy.

This concert concludes the series until June, when June 15th, (Father's day!!)   the Great Lorne Lofsky will bring his trio……more on that later……,
Musically yours!!  

Lynn, who will croon a toon or two as well.

At the Olive Tree Restaurant, we are passionate about creating the most authentic Mediterranean Cuisine in Saskatchewan. Our world class chef hails from the Island of Crete, where she was a chef in a seven-star resort. 

Everything is made from scratch, using the finest fresh ingredients and their own award winning olive oil. This is a dining experience like no other.


Our Story

olive tree michael and georgiaolive tree john diefenbaker chairBefore it was the Olive Tree Restaurant, it was the Blacktop Diner. Michael and Georgia bought the restaurant in 2010. They decided to keep the original 50's style decor, as there is a lot of history in the restaurant - John Diefenbaker frequently ate his lunch there, and his favorite chair remains perched near the bar.

Michael and Georgia have created something truly unique; an authentic Mediterranean dining experience, in an incredibly stylish 50's diner.
