Gord Downie Celebration Jam
The Gord Downie Celebration Jam is in support of The Gord Downie and Chanie Wenjack Fund.
The Flamingo Events Centre in Surrey, BC presents a celebration of Gord Downie on October 17, 2018. The Tragically Hip frontman has touched the lives of millions of Canadians and people around the world through his unforgettable live performances, activism and, most of all, through his music.
We are inviting local musicians to join a house band in an open jam celebrating the life and music of Gord Downie. We will have specially priced drinks - $2.50 for a highball and a buck and a half for a beer (adjusted for inflation) - and will be screening video of Tragically Hip performances.
Admission is by donation and 100% of the door will be contributed to the Gord Downie and Chanie Wenjack Fund to help further reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Canada.
Come by Blue Byrd Stage on Wednesday, October 17 to celebrate Gord Downie's legacy! All donations from the event will be going to support The Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjack Fund. Local artists will be accompanied by a house band to provide classic Gord Downie tunes for the evening! Sign up on our website if you are wanting to perform with the house band!
Please sign up on our website to perform - no walk in artists will be accepted. 1-3 songs per artist.
