Weekend Warriors Charity Christmas Party
By PAUL BOTHNER MUSIC | December 6, 2017
Weekend Warriors has become a staple in the Cape Town Music scene. Every year amateur and retired musicians over 35 join the programme, with many of them looking forward all year to the event.
For 2017 we took a break from running Weekend Warriors, with the idea of doing an even bigger and better Warriors programme in 2018. We have however had many past and possible future Warriors asking us to do an event anyway.
So, we decided to throw a Weekend Warriors Christmas Party. Bill, the Warriors Chief, in conjunction with Paddy’s has organized the first ever Weekend Warriors Charity Christmas Party.
When: December 21st, 2017
Where: Edgemead Cricket Club (AKA Paddy’s on the Mead)
Cost: A Toy Donation
That’s right! This isn’t just another gig, it’s a charity event. There is NO COVER charge. Instead, to gain entry into the event you must bring a toy to donate. After the event, all the toys will be donated to the Durbanville Children’s Home. So by attending the event, not only will you get to hear some great music, but you get a free serving of “Warm and Fuzzies”.
Everyone is invited, but all past Warriors and people who have applied for Warriors are especially encouraged to join the event. For past Warriors, it will be an excellent opportunity to catch up with some old mates. For future Warriors, you’ll be able to experience what the Weekend Warriors spirit is all about.
Bands at the Event
There will be three bands playing, with a few guest slots thrown in to keep things interesting. Each of the bands is an offshoot of the Weekend Warriors Programme. The bands who will be playing on the night are:
- Sidewalk Stories
- Pah Yeah
- Stone Mountain Gang
We look forward to seeing you there! [Click Here] to read more about the Weekend Warriors Programme.
