Posted by: tbassie

We are E-X-C-I-T-E-D to be hosting a benefit concert for UNICEF's relief efforts in Haiti! What initially was going to be a little gig to test out our new sound system has blossomed into an all-out fundraiser thank to the vision of some pretty special people!

Hosted at BOOMTOWN in the Delta Hotel South in Calgary, Alberta, patrons (and any fans that might show up) are invited to donate a cover charge they feel is suitable.

There will also be an opportunity to purchase unlimited raffle tickets for some pretty amazing draw prizes! You'll get to choose which boxes to drop your tickets in. Some of the prizes include: Flames hockey tickets, perfume gift box, wine basket, a fully stocked beer fridge, a stay in a jacuzzi suite, and more!

Speaking of sets, we are thrilled to have some great guest players sitting in with us for this gig! We are expecting about ten fabulous musicians to donate their musical presence to this worthy cause! It may be that we are also graced with the fancy footwork of some of Calgary's best swing-dancers, which can only add fun and exuberance to the spectacle!

All proceeds from the cover charge and the raffle will go directly to the benefit of Haiti through UNICEF.

The festivities get underway at about 7:30, but you may want to get there for an early dinner before the show. Thursday night is prime rib night at Boomtown, known for it's excellent food as well as music friendliness!
