The Jody Raffoul Band with special guests Leave Those Kids Alone are set to rock two concerts at The Bank Theatre in Leamington. The two concerts dates, on the first weekend of November, will honour local healthcare workers and first responders. A portion of the proceeds from the concerts will be directed to programs or aid for healthcare workers and first responders. The concerts are presented by The Bank Theatre.
Headlining the shows, Canada’s best-kept secret, local legend Jody Raffoul has released several albums, toured the US and Canada, opened for Bon Jovi at the sold-out Giants Stadium in New York and played more than 200 shows a year.
Local classic rock teen band sensation Leave Those Kids Alone, will open the shows.
Michelle Fortier, Manager of The Bank Theatre is thrilled to bring this concert together. “Our healthcare workers and first responders have been there for our communities since the beginning of this pandemic. Honouring their service in some small way, we hope, will be a boost to their morale. We need them to know we’re standing behind them in their ongoing and heroic efforts for our community.”
“The Bank Theatre is proud to support healthcare workers and first responders through our Programming” said President Corey Robertson. “Both of these bands are well loved in this area, will bring quality shows and we expect sell out concerts as Jody and his band historically does at The Bank Theatre.”
Sound engineer John Moran said “I’m pretty amped about featuring these two powerhouse bands. The Bank Theatre has recently installed a new sound system and we’re going to rock the rafters at The Bank Theatre for healthcare workers and first responders.”
The concerts are scheduled for Friday, November 5 at 7:30 PM (doors 6:30 PM) and Saturday, November 6 at 3:30 PM (doors 2:30 PM). Tickets are $35 plus tax.
