No Other Way aids local food bank

NEED TO KNOW

What: Chris White CD release concert for No Other Way

When: Thursday, 8 p.m.

Where: Downtown Arts Centre, 28 Rebecca St., 905-522-2005

Tickets: $15, available at Picks and Sticks, Locke Street; Pongetti Music, Upper James Street; Good Shepherd on Delaware Avenue. Also online at ticketscene.ca. Proceeds from ticket and CD sales will go to Good Shepherd. Non-perishable food donations are encouraged.

With the all the horror stories coming out of Haiti, it's easy to forget about the needs we have in our own city.

To help ease some of those needs, Hamilton singer-songwriter Chris White has decided to give the proceeds of his CD release concert Thursday to the Good Shepherd Food Bank.

"I've always been a big supporter of Good Shepherd," White says. "January is always a tough month for them, and I understand it's particularly tough this year. The demand is very high."
The CD, No Other Way, is White's second and has been several years in the making. Most of the album was recorded at Hamilton's Grant Avenue Studio and White's own Rosio Sound in Ancaster.

But three of the songs were recorded at Wishbone Studios in Muscle Shoals, Ala., which has hosted the Supremes, the Commodores, Charlie Daniels, Roy Orbison and many other high-profile acts.

White, a folksinger in the style of Gordon Lightfoot and a regular on the area pub circuit, was able to call on top-flight local musicians such as Danny Lockwood on drums and Stuart Zaltz on keyboards.

Grant Avenue sound engineer Amy King handled the production and sang backup on most of the tracks. White's band for the CD release concert will feature many of the musicians who appear on the CD.

As well, White's special guest at the concert will be his old friend Dominic Ashworth who is travelling in from London. Two of the songs on the album are cowrites with Ashworth.

"Dominic and I grew up together and travelled through Europe in the '70s, busking on street corners and in subways to make money for food. "He ended up going back to England and has lived there for the past 25 years."

Gordie's Grand Goodbye

In remembrance of Gord Aust, his Burlington Air Park friends have embarked on a pathway to honor his life and friendship and to establish a memorial in his name at Seneca College, Canada's premier aviation school.

The first step on this path is a fun-filled party, just the way Gordie would have wanted it.  Everyone is invited!!!  Here are the details...

Located at Burlington Air Park, 5336 Bell School Line, Milton, Ontario L9T 2Y1.  The date is Friday, August 21, 2009 at 7:30 PM.  A donation of at least $20.00 per person includes Gordie's favorite foods such as roasted pork, loaded hamburgers, grilled sausages, grilled cheese sandwiches, chicken fingers, french fries, chocolate cake and an array of salads and other Gordie delights.  Draft beer, wine and soft drinks will be included.  Gordie had a lot of favorites!

Gord was a friend of mine and I am honored to be performing that evening with my band.  Doug Ilton and his son will also be playing music as well.

So, come out to support a great event for a great man for a great cause!  Be sure to bring your own chairs and insect repellent.

All Star Jazz Alumni Concert

The Hamilton All Star Jazz Band just celebrated their 25 year anniversary. I was honoured to have been asked to be the M.C. for the Alumni Concert at Hamilton Place on May the 2nd, 2009. We had musicians who came from all over Canada and the US to play in the Alumni Orchestra – It was amazing. Russ Weil has been the driving artistic force behind the organization which was started when he was the musical director at Westmount High School many years ago. We had a great concert from the current All Stars followed by the Alumni Orchestra. Hamilton place was a great place to feature such a great Hamilton iconic organization. www.hamiltonallstarjazz.org
