Event Notes


The Fabulously Rich: The Tragically Hip Tribute

Long before we started The Fabulously Rich, in a twist of fate, our frontman, Dennis Ellsworth, forged a connection with Gord Downie that led to an extraordinary collaboration—a musical rendition of Gord's poem, "Coke Machine Glow," which found its place on Dennis's "Hazy Sunshine" album. The recording took place at none other than The Tragically Hip's Bathhouse Studio in Bath, ON.

A few of us had been working on an original project and when Gord's illness hit the headlines, we knew we had to take action. We decided to host a fundraiser in December 2016 in our hometown, Charlottetown. This was supposed to just be just a one-off night, a chance for us to play some songs we love, and support a friend.

We didn't realize it at the moment but we had created something special. People started asking us when we were going to do it again. Venue's started calling. The community was not ready to let the music fade away. Since then, we’ve been extremely fortunate to perform in front of hundreds of audiences big and small, earning the respect of thousands of fans and have cultivated an incredible following of our own.

Join us on this remarkable journey as we pay homage to The Tragically Hip and share our love for their music. Let's create unforgettable moments together, channelling the spirit of those legendary shows that touched our souls. Together, we'll keep the music alive, celebrating the magic that made The Tragically Hip an iconic force in Canadian music history.

Join us for an evening with The Fabulously Rich as we celebrate the musical legacy of The Tragically Hip.
