Please join is for an event called “Night for Day,” featuring a stellar lineup of local folks paying tribute to our good pal Darren Day, before he leaves town in November! Darren is a fabulous musician (see his album “This Evening Tonight,” or his great live shows) who excels at a variety of styles and plays with some very talented folks. He’s also the host of Same Train, Different Time, Tuesday nights, 6-8 pm central, on CKUW 95.9 fm. If you like my shows, you should like Darren’s just fine, indeed. Darren also is (like us) a tireless promoter of great music, especially local music. He was behind The Other Brothers, Del Barber, and more, before I’d even heard of them. Darren knows his stuff. He also happens to be a pretty swell guy. So, with all of that in mind, loyal listener Dean planted the seeds of an idea to do something for Darren before he goes. Dean is on to something. We would like to invite you to join us for:
A Night for Day
Saturday, September 25
The Yellow Dog Tavern (386 Donald St.)
featuring a variety of musical guests
We haven’t confirmed the lineup entirely, yet, but it looks like we should have Chris Neufeld and/or The Other Brothers, Keri Latimer (and/or Nathan?), Mike Petkau (and/or Les Jupes?), and hopefully a few tunes from Darren (I don’t think it’ll take much to convince him to jump onto a stage in front of a room full of people who love him, do you?) We’ll tell you more about the particulars, but really, it shouldn’t matter. Get down there and wish the best to a guy who really deserves it.
