GIANNI & SARAH, who frequently collaborate creatively outside of their main focus WALK OFF THE EARTH, started their own family a few years ago and immediately identified with FRIEND’S WITH HEARTS goal of trying to bring Christmas to underprivileged kids. Having released their own feature length Christmas film in 2014, the members of Walk Off The Earth are no strangers to spreading the message of kindness and generosity, especially around the holidays. GIANNI & SARAH will be accompanied onstage by WALK OFF THE EARTH drummer, Joel Cassady. Joining the night's entertainment will be Toronto based singer-songwriter SCOTT HELMAN. Helman took the world stage in 2014 when he released his debut EP Augusta. His music has been described as landing somewhere between Vance Joy and Jeff Buckley. DARENOTS, formed by ILL SCARLET’S Swav Pior will also be performing. DARENOTS quickly gained momentum after forming in 2015. Their mix of soul, reggae, hip-hop, pop and indie gained them an ever growing fan base that show no signs of slowing down.

A special set by DJ HUMAN KEBAB will round out the music portion of the evening. The evening will also include a live auction by former SAINT ALVIA / VIDEO DEAD front man, Ben Rispin, who will be taking live bids on everything from skateboards and studio time to a pair of tickets to the RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS sold out show in Toronto February 4, 2017.
