The Carnival Band Goes to Point Grey (This Saturday)

Carnival Band Fans,

Having just come off a busy weekend of Gibsons Jazz festival-ing and Commercial Drive Car Free Day-ing, the Carnival Band is showing no signs of slowing down.

Join us this Saturday, June 20th for two fun and important gigs around the UBC.

First off, at 10:00am the the Carnival Band will be joining forces with the Voters Taking Action on Climate Change team (www.vtacc.org) and parading in the Point Grey Fiesta Parade. Meet us on W. 11th Ave, just east of Blanca and be sure to check out the sidewalk sale and other fun events.

Later that day, at 4:45pm, we will be leading the Super-Hero Family Wave of the Chip's Not Dead Yet Memorial Mile (chipsnotdeadyet.com), a fundraiser for the BC Children's Hospital Foundation. The Parade starts at W. 10th Street and Discovery.

Work Less Party PARTY and a Sea Cruise

Here's another reminder about the Work Less Party PARTY happening this Saturday, June 6th at 9pm at the Japanese Hall (487 Alexander). Not only is there the usual menu of body art, dream scenes, and terrific music (including Five Alarm Funk, Orkestar Slivovica, and yours truly), but there's also a new tea garden installation on the rooftop! Details here - hope to see you there!

And for those of you interested in joining us on a sea cruise, come to the Sunshine Coast for the Gibson's Jazz Fest on Saturday, June 13th. We'll be playing at 4:30 in Dougal Park, in between a dozen or so other great acts. Look out for impromptu jams on the ferry as well. More info at http://www.coastjazz.com/
