The History of Our Building


Our Building was built in 1887 by its original owner, Thomas Allen, a builder by profession.

In 1906 the building was expanded. the commercial space fronting James St. North was converted into a hotel lobby and drinking establishment, and the building commenced its existence as ‘Armory Hotel’. Its main clients of the day were the armed forces officers and their families from the Armory facilities directly across James St. North.

Bill Simms Live at Mulberry


Bill Simms is an artist who can be thought of as a musical chameleon, due to the stylistic breadth of his music. You can see him one night performing jazz standards at a local restaurant and the next night wailing dirty rock and roll songs in a dive bar. The following night he may just as easily be serenading the patrons of a songwriter's circle as spitting mad rhymes at a house party. The fact of the matter is, Bill loves all music that's written with conviction and high quality.

With a diploma in Music Industry and Performance as well as a Degree in Jazz Studies, Bill is well equipped for any performance situation. He has taken the stage with successful Canadian acts such as Sarah Beatty, The Heavy Horses, Unidentified Funk Object, Mallory Johnson, Denis Parker and many others. He has also performed with various jazz combos, musical theatre pit orchestras as well as leading his own bands.

Bill's songs will be sure to make you hoot, holler, belly laugh and maybe even shed a tear. Dealing with subjects such as love, longing, adultery, death and even UFOs, Bill's songs have something for everyone to relate to.
