Earth Hour Day & Matinee Gospel Finale @ Hugh's Room...



 
CONCERTS & WORKSHOPS... TODAY! Saturday is Earth Hour Day and while I can't attend I would like to encourage everyone to go to the Voices in the Dark: an Earth Hour Arts Celebration to benefit Mariposa in the Schools and the Echo Women's Choir.  Last year's event sold out and I had a great time performing with the choir and other MITS artists.  This candlelight evening concert and silent auction is being held at the Church of the Holy Trinity (behind the Eaton's Centre).  More information at Mariposa in the Schools on Facebook  and MITS.  
 
GOSPEL NEWS... TOMORROW! My Gospel Matinee Season 9 Finale is this Sunday! April 1st at Hugh's Room in Toronto.  Due to a last minute scheduling conflict Chuck Campbell will be unable to join us this weekend. In his stead, Chuck's sending us his friend and musical peer Lonnie "Big Ben" Bennett from Rochester, NY.  So Sunday afternoon we'll enjoy the Sacred Steel guitar playing of Big Ben along with the vocal stylings of gospel series favourites The Levy Sisters (Ciceal and Amoy pictured below), with Bucky Berger on the drums and my son Ben Whiteley on bass.  Tickets are now available from Hugh's Room by calling (416) 531-6604. Lunch reservations are also available and there are discounts for groups of 10 or more. For information about the musical guests, click on Gospel Shows.
