Published Nov 21, 2016The Wooden Sky recently road-tested some new material, but they've returned home and are preparing for their annual Holiday Revue.
This year marks the seventh time that the band have organized the Christmastime shows, and they will once again be hosting the fundraising concerts over multiple nights in multiple cities.
On December 12, the band will take over St. Alban's Church in Ottawa. Proceeds from the event will benefit Carty House. The Facebook event page can be found here.
The show will then come to Toronto's 918 Bathurst. With the December 14 show nearly sold out already, the band have added a second show on December 15. Tickets for the second date go on sale this morning (November 21) at 11 a.m. local time. Proceeds from the Toronto editions of the Holiday Revue will be donated to Romero House.
Each of the three shows will see the Wooden Sky joined by special surprise guests.
Singer Gavin Gardiner shared a statement about the upcoming benefit shows, and you can see it in full below:
It's hard to believe it's been seven years since we had the gall to call the first event an 'annual' affair. Over the years this has been an opportunity for us to bring a great group of friends together, try out new songs and play old ones in new ways. After spending the year recording and touring in conventional venues, it's really special for us to put on such a D.I.Y. event, taking on every responsibility from delivering tickets by bike, to setting up the bar. Of course it's not just the five of us putting it together, it takes a lot of loved ones to pull it off and we couldn't do it without them.
