Bluewater Health Foundation and Do It For Sarnia, with the support of presenting sponsor LiUNA, are excited to announce that Canadian rock band The Trews will headline the Do It For Sarnia Block Party on Saturday, June 22, 2019 at the Suncor Agora in Centennial Park. Ohio rockers, Red Wanting Blue will open the show at 8 pm.
Dan Edwards started the Do It For Sarnia campaign in 2016 in response to the generosity received from the community when he was involved in an accident that left him paralyzed from the neck down in 2006. Edwards set a $150,000 fundraising goal as part of the initiative, benefitting Mental Health & Addiction Services at Bluewater Health. To date, over $85,000 has been raised.
With multiple radio hits drawn from six scorching studio albums plus several EPs, pair of live records, and a retrospective, The Trews are among the most prolific, electrifying and innovative rock bands on the planet, a fact corroborated by onetime stage-mates The Rolling Stones, Weezer, and Bruce Springsteen.
The Nova Scotia-bred, Hamilton, Ontario-based combo of singer/guitarist Colin MacDonald, guitarist John-Angus MacDonald, bassist Jack Syperek, and drummer Chris Gormley – songwriters all – has won universal acclaim for both their dazzling live performances and wildly accessible songs.
The band’s current, sixth studio album, the towering and multifaceted Civilianaires, was cut in Toronto with fast-rising producer Derek Hoffman and features marquee assists from Arkells mainmain Max Kerman, super-producer Bob Rock, and celebrated singer/songwriter Serena Ryder.
Gates for the all-ages, licensed event open at 6 p.m., with special musical guests to be announced. Tickets are $40 each plus fees.
