The Duvettes and Friends
with Relative and DJ Joey Gold
"Party of the Year" is not a term to throw around lightly, especially when it's still Q1. But those of you who came to our debut show know that this event WILL be just that (fact: you guys drank record bar sales, and were the best looking crowd there ever was).
Now's the time to blow off some steam before Lent, with your hot local rock cover band The Duvettes and all of their friends! We've also lined up a DJ for after our set, to keep the d-floor bumping. Also, did we mention it's for The Kids? ALL net proceeds will be donated to music-related charitable initiatives (see below). Have you done something charitable lately? No? $10 and a good time will get you back in society's good graces!*
The Duvettes are five young professionals from Vancouver who came together in 2013 to form a cover band and jam out songs from their diverse repertoires of hard rock, indie pop, and everything in between. After a few practices, the musical chemistry was palpable, and the group decided that a live performance was in order. A greater purpose soon emerged, as the Duvettes arranged for all of their proceeds from their first show to go towards outfitting three children from East Vancouver with guitars and providing weekly music lessons for them over the next school year. This desire to continue contributing while sharing the joy of playing and performing music with one another has now become an unshakable passion, and the group is fired up for 2015.

2) We are proud to update that the proceeds raised from our last show have funded, in partnership with Tom Lee Music Academy, weekly guitar lessons for three underprivileged children from East Vancouver since October 2014. A small portion of the proceeds from this show will ensure that those lessons continue until the end of the school year in June. Thank you all so much!
