The White Rock Blues Society


Total Success

Check out our myspace site for pictures and video of Sunday’s Yuletide Blues Benefit show held at the Rhumba Room at the “Pink Palace” (Pacific Inn Hotel). The 2nd Annual Yuletide Blues Benefit was a great evening of music and sharing! $3,755 was collected at door along with 701 lbs of food. On behalf of the White Rock Blues Society, I would like to say a few words about Sunday’s Yuletide Blues Benefit dance/show for the Peace Arch Community Services Food Bank...servicing the White Rock/South Surrey area. Jason Buie did a masterful job putting on the greatest blues shows in the history of White Rock/South Surrey. He handled a multitude of entertainers and logistics with excellent poise and tact. Hats off to “Brown Sound” under Gordie Brown’s leadership for creating a rich visual & sound environment, handling all the variety of bands and their technical needs. Also many thanks goes out to James Wahl for working the sound board all night. Many thanks to Anthony Intas, a driving force in promoting this wonderful community event. Congratulations to Ruth Chitty and her band of volunteers for handling the door and donations. A warm thanks to all the musicians who donated their talents and time to make the evening a resounding success. Many thanks also goes out to Rockwell’s and the team for supplying the room free of charge to support our efforts. Thank you to the WRBS volunteers who helped make the evening flow smoothly. Last but not least, a great big thank you to the members of the local media who helped spread the word about our WRBS 2nd annual Yuletide Blues event making this a very successful and rewarding evening.
