Benefit concert to help improve Lester Centre

Prince Rupert musicians will pay tribute to their inspirations and influences during a benefit concert for the Lester Centre of the Arts.

Prince Rupert musicians will pay tribute to their inspirations and influences during a benefit concert for the Lester Centre of the Arts later this month.

Crystal Lorette, Lester Centre of the Arts general manager, said the Completely Plugged Inspired concert will exhibit what inspires the performing musicians to play an instrument or sing from the depths of their souls.

More than 25 Prince Rupert artists will take the stage in 10 acts, playing songs by the musicians and groups that sparked their passion for music and love of performing.

The show’s line up consists of Dixie Dead Shake, Aja and Jeff, Silver Shadow, Ray and Cynthia, Triple Bypass, Replica, Ian, Gordie, Ronnie and Friends, Ol’ Dog, Mermaid Cafe and Nobody Told Rachel.

“You do not want to miss this rare opportunity to hear everything from AC/DC to the Dixie Chicks all in one spectacular event,” Lorette said.

“It’s going to be a great show.”

All proceeds will go toward upgrading technical equipment at the performing arts centre, with organizers hoping the event raises enough to purchase a new digital public address system. The facility also needs to regularly replace cables, monitors, speakers, equalizers and lighting equipment.

“All of the funds will go right back into the theatre,” Lorette said.

“Everybody wins. You get to hear good music and have a great time, and hopefully we get to upgrade a few of the things on our wish list.”

The Completely Plugged Inspired concert is taking place on Saturday, Nov. 29 at 8 p.m. Tickets are available at the Lester Centre of the Arts.

Lorette said there was so much interest from musicians wanting to be in the show that the centre will likely organize another Completely Plugged concert in the spring.
