Blues & Chili Festival
Sunday the 20th of September
Abbott Street

Gastown’s best chefs face off in a chili competition and local blues musicians, headlined by Jim Byrnes, set the mood for a fun day in Vancouver’s coolest ‘hood. Proceeds go to Girls Rock Camp Vancouver.

Hot chili and cool blues, now that's a fundraiser!

As Jim Byrnes wrapped up his weekly streamed radio show, he reminded us of the new video posted up on the Shore 104 promoting the VAMS Music Saves Video Project. The Vancouver Adapted Music Society works to provide musical self-development, addresses issues of access for musicians, and promotes quality of life through all facets of composing, playing and listening.

It's a fine video, melding many Vancouver voices...all you have to give is a listen...

The biggest problem with the subject line above, is, Jim Byrnes plays so _many_ benefits month to month and year to year, it's hard to keep up with him! Jim doesn't stand up for one charity, he plays for dozens. Upcoming just this next week: the BC Disabled Games fundraiser at the Golden Ears Winter Club July 24th .

And this July 22nd he is opening a free concert on the roof of the Bathhouse in English Bay to kick off the HSBC fireworks display with Steve Dawson and Blackie and the Rodeo Kings! The best part about this date? It's going to be streamed live by the Shore 104.

So, no excuses not to give a listen. I'll even be skipping Deadliest Catch for this one. Honest.
