Fun Fun Fundraising

This weekend I'm playing in a hockey tournament for charity. It's a fun thing we do each year called the Bytown Cup and the organizers pick a charity that we work together to raise funds for. This year's charity is the Capital Rainbow Refuge.

I love this tournament because of its open arms. This isn't your typical hockey tourney, this is about inclusion and encouraging folks who might have always wanted to try hockey to come out and play with us!

Like last year, I recorded a new song and released it on Bandcamp to help with the fundraising. It's a cover of the stone cold Camp Radio classic "I've Got You Up My Sleeves" from the album Campista Socialista. I can say it's a stone cold classic because I wrote it. Ha. Anyway, this version has mellow acoustic underpinnings and all funds raised from its release will go to this weekend's great cause.

Have a listen, click through to Bandcamp and download/donate if you can. 

And as always, thanks for listening and for the Bandcamp support.  

 

Speaking of fundraising, I'm also once again taking part in a mini-street fest called 'Shanks at McCranks'. 

Those who follow me know I've played this show many times and helped raise funds for the food bank. We're once again raising money for that great cause by setting up and playing sets outside McCranks cycle shop, facing a beautiful park in Hintonburg. 

This year we have two stages and I'm hosting stage #2 (which Patrick Shanks affectionately calls The Page Stage). My friend Susan O and I will play mini-sets on this 'stage' between acts on the main 'Shanks at McCranks' stage.

Circle Sunday June 16th on your calendars and pop by between 3pm and 8pm. There will be drinks, pizza and lots of free live music. And we encourage you to donate of course. :)

Stay punk out there,
