Loaves & Fishes Food Bank fundraiser!
Five regional bands each playing a set and then let the jam begin. The show will be at least twice as long as last year’s show.
All the proceeds from Thursday’s event will be donated to Nanaimo’s Loaves & Fishes Food Bank. Suggested donation is non-perishable items and/or cash with a minimum value of ten dollars per person.
Last year we collected a whopping 191 Kgs of food and over $1600 in cash. The Food Bank was very happy with the donation. Hats off to our fabulous fans for being so generous. Let’s do it again!
Here are the bands playing the fundraiser, on August 24th – designated time slots will be decided that night by draw !
Alexander’s Bluestime Band | Lady V and the Key Krasher | Lazy Mike and the Rockin’ Recliners | Renovation Blues Band | Thor and the Thundercats
Our Thursday schedule looks like this:
Gates 3:00 pm
Band 1: 4:00 – 4:30
Band 2: 4:40-5:10
Band 3: 5:20-5:50
Band 4: 6:00 – 6:30
Band 5: 6:40- 7:10
Queens Shuffle from 7:20-10:00
When the sets are complete, The Queens Shuffle will take over. It will feature even more musicians than last year and they will play for a longer period of time. This will be lots of fun for everyone!
