In the grand scheme of things, one week of my life is a pretty tiny timeline. I’ll always think of myself as a fortunate person. Why? Because I have the opportunity to live my passion by performing music for a living and share this gift with others. As an “Acoustic Live Looping Artist”, I am excited about performing and growing as an Artist, but also feel I should give back to society and to my community on many levels as I become more successful. This event will definitely be on a new level for me!
The recognition of these gifts I’ve been given starts with my parents, both of whom I lost to Cancer. They were an integral part of my musical beginnings – which I’m sure they knew. That being said, one level that I continually give back to my community is by raising donations for the Canadian Cancer Society. Because my parents dealt with Cancer, I’m under the impression that this disease could be fairly genetically prominent to me.
Moving forward, I will raise funds for the C.C.S. by way of a 6 day musical marathon. Yes, that’s right, I will be playing guitar for a period of 125 hours to break the Guinness World Record set in 2008. The 6 day event will take place at River Rock Casino Resort from Monday, May 7th, 2018 to Saturday, May 12th 2018. Great Canadian Casinos have been a strong supporter of my performances, and they have stepped up in a big way to support this event, for which I can’t thank them enough. I also have many people in my life who challenge me and respect the unique aspect of this event. I’m grateful to have them by my side!
As the event day draws nearer, there will be updates on websites listed below, and a Canadian Cancer Society online donation page in support of this cause. Join us at the following online sites and follow the hashtag #spiritriverrock for more information. Thank you for your time!!!
All the best,
Acoustic Live Looping Artist
