On Saturday April 29th, Two Beats Ahead Jazz Band was delighted to play for the 4th annual fundraiser event for Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind. It was a fun night at Orchard View Wedding and Event Centre in Greely. The owners of Orchard View kindly donated their premises and staff for the night, so that all proceeds could go to CGDB. Many businesses donated door and raffle prizes and the crowd danced to the upbeat music of our New Horizons Two Beats Ahead Jazz Band. Several members from other NH bands attended together with many friends and families.
Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind does not receive any government funding. It is solely funded by corporate and private donations. This year they have 138 dogs in various stages of training and working for very grateful recipients.
Two Beats Ahead next concert will be in Andrew Haydon Park on June 4th at 1 p.m. The band is working on 7 new charts for the event along with some great charts we played last Saturday night. Please come along and enjoy a lovely afternoon in the park with Two Beats Ahead Jazz Band
