Right A Wrong With Song

Last week I told you about the $4,000 loss in sound equipment that Phil Davey incurred due to thieves who broke into the Organic Connections Café at 15622 Marine Drive in White Rock.

A call was put out to local musicians to come together to put on a fundraiser to help Phil out for all he has done for the local music community.

Wow! What an outpouring of support for the July 2nd Fundraiser to help out Phil Davey. Seventeen acts have signed up to help “Right A Wrong With Song” next Saturday at the Pacific Inn, Rhumba Room. Doors at 3:00 PM Show starts at 5:00 PM. Admission is by donation to the Phil Davey Fund to help offset his $4,000 loss of stolen equipment. Those in charge of the hotel Catering Services have donated the venue, Lil Barker and Vic Benetton of Buchanan Printing 890 Maple St. White Rock have donated promotional print material, all the musicians are donating their talent and time, the show is being produced by Jason Buie and many WRBS volunteers will be on hand to make this
a very special musical event for the community by the community.

Many thanks go out to Jason Buie the White Rock Blues Society Artistic Director who is producing the show and will be our Master of Ceremonies for the entire affair.

Never before in White Rock/South Surrey has there been this amount of talent on one stage in one day. Come out for the entire show or for a few hours but come down and witness this event first hand, you will be very impressed with the talent in your neighborhood.

Come on out and enjoy the music and help support a man who has done so much for our community. Let’s “Right A Wrong With Song”.

 The numbers say it all.

The White Rock/South Surrey music community righted a wrong with song.

Thanks go out to: 18 acts, over 70 musicians who presented an 8 hour tapestry of music,

12 volunteers, Ingrid from the The Rhumba Room at the Pacific Inn Hotel for donating the room and the restaurant staff for preparing an excellent
buffet,

Lil & Vic of Buchanan Printers for donating the posters, Luke Harley Productions for supplying additional needed sound equipment, all local newspapers for helping to get the word out, The Shore 104 Radio station with a big tip of the hat to Dave Chesney, David of Tapestry Music for much appreciated back line gear, Rod Senft for supplying the drum kit,

Robbie Keene from Surfside Music Vintage Guitars who will be helping Phil fill the equipment gap resulting from the robbery, and most of all to the estimated 400 people who came through the doors and donated $3,573, showing their love and support.

A special thank you goes out to Jason Buie the White Rock Blues Society Artistic Director and society co founder for producing the show, and being the Master of Ceremonies.  He kept things on time and everyone was able to hit the stage.

In two short weeks the community came together and rallied for Q Sound to
keep the music alive. Thanks to one and all.

A highlight of the evening was when Phil took to the stage and did a great impersonation of Joe Cocker singing, “With A Little Help From My Friends”.
