Local charities will benefit from the Campbell River Mirror Charity Jazz & Blues Weekend at Spirit Square which kicks off Thursday at 7 p.m. and runs Friday and Saturday.
Each evening of the annual jazz and blues festival will be hosted by a local charity who will be collecting toonies from the audience which will help them continue providing the needed services they provide the community.
Three prime jazz and blues acts will perform that classic music that we all love.
The festival kicks of tomorrow night with David Vest and his quartet playing guitar and piano-based blues. Thursday’s performance will be hosted by Campbell River Special Olympics. Look for their volunteers to be circulating amongst the audience collecting toonies.
The music and fun continues Friday night with the Desperation Jazz Band whose version of ever-lively Dixieland Swing will have Spirit Square jumping.
Friday’s charity hosts will be the Campbell River Hospice Society which will have volunteers there to collect your generous donation of toonies.
The festival concludes Saturday night with the rockin’ blues of Brickhouse and your toonies will go to benefit the Campbell River SPCA.
Each show runs from 7-9 p.m., so, come on down to Spirit Square Thursday to Saturday for great live music and give local charities a helping hand.
