Pick of the Day: Regina Band Swap

This was an idea that originated in Saskatoon a few years ago. It’s being held again this year at Amigos on Dec. 30. For the first time, though, there’ll also be a Regina version of the event. What it involves is 35 local musicians. Instead of playing with their regular bandmates, they’ve joined forces to create seven new groups. Each band has spent a day jamming, and tonight at 8 p.m. at the Exchange they’ll take the stage and perform a few cover songs.

Here’s a link to James Brotheridge’s cover story in our Dec. 15 issue. Tickets are $10 at the door, with proceeds to Carmichael Outreach Centre.

  1. were you fine folks there last night? or just near a keypad to comment before and/or after it? in fact, one group that included val halla and chris s. from the lonesome weekends pulled off a stellar version of a lady gaga tune. tons of $$ were raised for charmichael as well. i understand some wink-wink nudge-nudge business, but i doubt that tony bennett could’ve added anything to a fantastic night of community and musical fun. bonus: a folk-fest style finale of ‘el scorcho’!
