Dance into the night at Keep the Beat

Keep the Beat has a stellar line up full of Kootenay musicians entertaining at Nelson Lakeside Park until 10 p.m. tonight.

L.V Rogers students are keeping the Beat going as they host the day of music and fun at Lakeside Park in Nelson today.

The stellar line up is full of Kootenay  musicians  entertaining until 10 p.m. tonight. Musicians include recent Starbelly Jam performers James Lamb and Mrs. Strange, local director of the Symphony of the Kootenays Jeff Faragher, and the youthful student led L.V. Rogers jazz combo Swing Theory. International talent Erica Dee, who also performed at the world famous Shambhala Music Festival near Salmo, will also perform.

Closing the night off will be Roy has Fire. This youthful band has toured around the Kootenays creating a name for themselves playing a rock/ alternative mix.

As this even is fundraiser for War Child Canada, there is a fifty-fifty raffle and a silent auction featuring many beautiful items donated by local businesses, a kids activity tent with bracelet making, hula hooping, face painting and various kids games, and a communal banner.

Due to the generous support from the community, all activities will be free with a donation box. One hundred per cent of the proceeds go to War Child Canada.  Keep the Beat fundraisers in years past have raised upward of $12,000.
