Back in December of 2006 we managed to talk our way into having the venerable Yale Hotel host our very first Blues for the Bank. Of course, it seems that I had forgotten to mention that we didn’t actually have a band!
Thus the AGENT C (that’s me!) and TOP SECRET (the as of yet unknown band) came to be. Fortunately, my friend Dave Gilbert and I managed to convince Bruce Hayne, Kenn Moyer, Brian Linnet, Bill Kudenchuk, and John Irving to give it a try for a “one night only” gig in support of the Surrey Food Bank. That night we all had a blast and the Yale asked us back to do it again!
For over a decade we have we have been proud to present Blues For the Bank every year and 2018 will be no exception. We have added a few faces: Terry, Angela and Jim. We also brought back Jeff from the Keith Diamond and the Rockets band, proving once again that the EAGLES were correct when they sang “You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave…” We are also expecting to feature special guests: Brian Linnet, Bruce Hayne and Mike Lord. Finally, and this is really going to be something special, we’ll also be joined by the Aequitas Social Justice Choir.
So join us Saturday, January 20th at the Sheraton Guildford Vancouver Hotel for another night of socializing, food and drink and, best of all, some great live music and dancing!
I can guarantee this will be the best show ever. For the first time ever you can order your tickets online so please order them as soon as possible. The last few years we have sold out… sold out the venue that is! We would never sell out the Surrey Food bank. They are simply the best at what they do, and they do so much!
