On Sunday, Dec. 20 six local bands will rock the Castlegar Complex in support of the Castlegar food bank.
Supercat Studios is hosting Musical Bridges from 1:30 to 10 p.m. with admission by cash donation to the Castlegar Community Harvest Food Bank.
“I’m lucky enough to have a bunch of friends in bands that are happy to help out and perform for free to raise money,” explains Yanive Feiner, owner of Supercat. “And we’ve had a lot of success in the past doing fundraisers with music.”
Ruckus Classic Rock, Kolar, Christina Amelio, Hannah Flick, and Feiner’s band, Gary And The Flashbacks, are confirmed to perform and Blue Crush may also take the stage. The music ranges from Top 40 to classical rock ‘n’ roll.
The students of Supercat Studios will also be performing and plan to cover a number of popular artists, including Bon Jovi, the White Stripes, the Eagles, Metallica, Iron Maiden, Katy Perry, Twisted Sister, Green Day, Joan Jett, Avril Lavigne and the Georgia Satellites.
Supercat Studios puts on a musical fundraiser for the food bank every year.
“It’s a good way for the students to get out and play, and support the community,” said Feiner. “Music brings people together in a really effective way, so it’s always been successful for us.”
Feiner would like to thank the RDCK, Andy and Rick for donating to cover the cost of the venue.
