The British are preparing to invade the musical sensibilities of guests at the upcoming Band Together Concert on Wed., Oct. 14.
The fundraiser, in partnership with 99.9 BOB FM and 103.1 Virgin Radio, is in support of the St. Vital-based Jocelyn House Hospice (177 Egerton Rd.) and will be held at 411 Main (411 Main St.). Cocktails will begin at 7 p.m. and the show will start at 8 p.m. Tickets are $50 per person.
The title of this year’s third annual fundraising concert is British Invasion — Then & Now and is scheduled to feature artists including Those Guys, Keith and Renee, Panicland, Curtis Newton, The Jarrett Lobley Project, Garrett Neiles, Courtney Krebsbach, Bernie Pastorin and members of Pushing Daisies.
There will also be appetizers courtesy of Food Evolution and wine selections from Banville & Jones Wine Co. will be available for purchase.
The event will be held in the spotlight of World Hospice and Palliative Care Day (Sat., Oct. 10), which promotes awareness of hospice and palliative care needs.
Jocelyn House Hospice was founded by Bill and Miriam Hutton in 1985 in memory of their daughter, Jocelyn, who died of cancer aged 17. Their daughter’s bravery in battling the disease inspired them to found Western Canada’s first freestanding hospice at their wooded, riverside family home on Egerton Road in St. Vital.
