I mentioned in a post recently that there is an ad hoc committee working diligently and with great enthusiasm to put on what would have been Stompin' Tom's 78th birthday party. There's nothing terribly formal about this group. We don't expect anything for our efforts other than an excuse to celebrate the life of this great Canadian troubadour and of course have a lot of fun in the process. It's a formibable assembly of movers and shakers to be sure. Besides yours truly, I'm joined by the following:
Kelly Lynne Ashton
Douglas John Cameron
Grant Gordon...........I'll add names to this group as the event gets closer.
These fine folks come from all walks of life but they have one thing in common... they love Tom and his music.
Given the "non profit" status of this event, we need to sell 170 seats at $25 (advance) each to break even. That's Job One. There's no doubt that will happen. Once the lineup of musicians is finalized, this event will sell out very quickly indeed.
February 8th, 2014. The Olde Eton House, 710 Danforth Avenue. 8 to midnight! $25 advance.
