You have the power to improve your community — and to do it “for a song”. The fundraiser event for the Cowichan United Way 2014 campaign & the Cowichan Neighbourhood House headlines Lynnea Bruce who will sing original songs. It includes a Silent Auction, Swing music, and a full course dinner (salmon, turkey, and vegetarian). All this for only $25! The evening includes Cowichan Swing Band, who use the Old Firehall as their practice centre, and the Jazz sounds of the Free Radical Dixies (see biographies below). Tickets are $25 (both dinner & concert) in advance or $15 at the door for either dinner or concert (cash only please at the door). Check out some of the fun from last year’s fundraiser on our Facebook album.

If you like New Orleans style Jazz, then the Free Radical Dixie Band are for you. They are a freshly formed band local to Chemainus who specialize in the fun, early jazz sound.
