We feel that youth can make a difference, and that helping other youth, just like ourselves, is a perfect place to start! We have organized this event to raise funds for the Cyrus Centre in Abbotsford. Their statement is as follows: "Cyrus Centre is an inner city mission, providing a safe and welcoming place for youth to get food, shelter, do laundry, have a shower, receive referrals, advocacy and exit the streets." Here is a link to their website if you want more information. http://www.cyruscentre.com/ The following bands will be gracing us with their talent: The Northern (formerly Ivory Coast) Poppy and the Pistols Adam & Antium Ransom for the Captives To get in requires a minimum of a $10 donation at the door. There may even be concession available. If you want to donate items at this event, that would also be greatly appreciated. See the above link to learn what they need most! And lastly, TELL ALL YOUR FRIENDS! :) We want to make as big of a difference as possible.
Sounds Like: Bon Jovi, Paramore, Simple Plan, Carly Rae Jepsen, My Chemical Romance
Bio: We like to consider ourselves a band of talented teenagers, originally from Surrey BC. We write our own material and do occasional killer covers. We're a pop-rock band, but with neat twists such as 80's influenced guitar riffs.
“I have to give a lot of praise to these kids. With the professionalism displayed and the ability and talent shown, it showed me what today’s teens can accomplish. I am a resident of Cloverdale, a music lover and have the joy to be able to review shows as a passion. I thought the whole event was very well done. All three of these bands have a future in performing. There were the occasional technical difficulties but the soundman and the musicians recovered quite quickly and the show never missed a beat. Ransom for the Captives is also comprised of Lord Tweedmuir students. This six-member band was talented and played with different styles of music from acoustic to edgy rock.Keyboardist Lauren Dyck had great presence, a smile that would not quit.Drummer Zach Birmingham doing his drum solo had me flashback to the 70s when I saw such artists like Jerry Mercer of April Wine or early Neil Peart from Rush in 1977. Then there are the two stellar guitarists Robert Crews and Nik Dragutinovic”
