Rockin’ For The Food Bank 2017

There is going to be a huge benefit for the Food Bank tonight Thursday, Dec. 28th at Heartwood Hall in Owen Sound.  Starting early, with the doors opening at 5 pm and the music starting at 5:30, it will present several hours of live music with an all-star lineup.

Trevor McKenzie has put together a special band for this show.  Maple Blues winner, leader of the hot jam band most Wednesdays at Ted’s Range Road Diner, guitarist on everybody’s record and sales and rental guy at Long & McQuade, you can bet Trevor can put together a crack band.

All of the money raised by this concert goes to the Owen Sound Salvation Army Food Bank which serves more than 500 clients every month.

Come early to catch vocalist and coach Kelda Mikalson with Ryan Gable.  Check out the Silent Auction with donations from thirty local businesses. Get a caricature drawn by Sam Gorrie and she’ll donate fifty percent to the Food Bank.

Rob Elder has been working on an album.  For this benefit he’s getting together with Mike Weir, Sylvie Annette Kindree, and Josi Elder to perform as The Shoeshoopers.  Sylvie Annette Kindree, and Josi Elder, with Lauren Jewell, form the vocal trio that is featured on the great Kreuger Motel CD.  Sylvie was swept out of town last year by My Son The Hurricane and she’s been deposited back home after a long trip down the yellow brick road.

Don Buchanan recently sold out the Marsh Street Centre in Clarksburg with his band backing jazz singer Mary-Catherine Pazzano.

 “Don Buchanan lives in Owen Sound,” says Tony Bauer, who organizes many of the Thornbury and Clarksburg jazz events, “He’s the most underrated musician in my opinion.  He’s a composer, arranger.  He plays clarinet, he plays tenor, piano; he’s a wonderful musician.” 

In the past five years or so, Don has been doing duets with Jamie Smith, a Scottish tenor originally from Oban, Scotland.  They’ve agreed to be part of the show for the Food Bank.
