Fundraising Event Helps Group Attend Maple Blues Awards
The White Rock Blues Society is presenting a fundraiser on Monday, Jan 1 at the Yale Hotel in support of blues band The Twisters, who’ll use the proceeds to cover travel costs they’ll incur getting to a couple of prestigious gigs.
The Twisters, who are five-time nominees for the 2010 Maple Blues Awards, will head for Toronto to participate in and perform for the annual awards ceremony on January 18th. The group is slated to perform during the 13th annual gala event at Koerner Hall.
From Ontario the group heads for Tennessee, where they’ll attend the International Blues Challenge Jan 20-23 in Memphis.
The Twisters are David “Hurricane” Hoerl (vocals, harmonica), Brandon “Yukon Slim” Isaak (guitar, vocals), Keith Picot (bass) and Chip Hart (drums).
Admission to the quartet’s show at the Yale is $10, 7:30 p.m.
