THE CHRONICLE -HERALD THE MAIL STAR
New clubs The Old Triangle,
Aladdin open in Halifax

Bedford, Aladdin's Jazz and Blues Theatre in Rockingham

Aladdin's is the dream project of
Adams, whose dad and local jazz icon Bucky Adams
ran his own place in the 60's, the notorious Club Unusual.
Situated on the Bedford Highway across from the House of
Mei Mei, Aladdin's will be a showcase for jazz and blues, both
local and from away, as well as poetry and comedy.
There's a bar and a kitchen, which will soon be dishing up
choice Caribbean and soul food.
This Friday and Saturday, Aladdin's features Corey and Bucky
joined by bassist and crooner John Chiasson with Cuban
pianist Sylvio Pupo, so strap on those cha cha heels.
