The fundraiser concert for the Great War Memorial Foundation for the Perth Hospital on Saturday night, February 7 at the PDCI Auditorium in Perth was a real success! Vancouver’s TOM LAVIN & The Legendary POWDER BLUES BAND – celebrating 37 years of “good times guaranteed” Blues – put on a fabulous show. It was a near sellout crowd and judging by the comments from attendees, the standing ovation and the demand for an encore at the end of the show – everybody had a marvellous time!
James Doran, of Choose The Blues Productions along with the Presenting Sponsor Tom Burns, Burns Jewellers in Perth said that they would put on a great show and they did! With Tom Lavin on lead vocals & guitar, Tyler Yarema – keyboards & backup vocals, Gary Kendall – bass, Al Webster – drums, Pat Carey – sax, and Howard Moore – trumpet.
Thank you to all who bought tickets and all the Sponsors for the evening. Because of you $2500 was raised for the GWM Foundation of the Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital.
