Robbie Keene, who runs Surfside Music and Vintage Guitars in South Surrey, has donated a cool blue Aria acoustic guitar for a raffle that will help White Rock Blues Society buy some stage gear for its many gigs.
Appropriately, the guitar is signed by some notable musicians who have played in the area recently, including harmonica ace James Harmon, Gerry Burg, Steve Kozak and Trooper's Ra McGuire, with more autographs to come.
Tickets for the raffle are just $2, with the draw set to happen at the society's New Year's Eve party, featuring The Twisters at the Rhumba Room bar. The guitar will come with a booklet of photos of the musicians in the act of signing the instrument. The one-of-a-kind guitar is on display at Surfside's "home of tone," 1645 140th St.
