Get ready for RockFest

A fundraising concert at North Saanich Middle School this month will support band students

Local band Towers and Trees will play at North Saanich Middle School’s RockFest 2014 fundraiser on Feb. 20.

A concert at North Saanich Middle School this month is all about showcasing local talent, says one organizer.

“There’s so much local talent in Victoria and I love the idea of being able to showcase that to the community and especially to youth,” said Kelly Glover, one of the event’s co-ordinators.

The concert, featuring local bands Towers and Trees and FallBrigade, is a fundraiser for the school’s band trips and end of year activities, Glover added.

“The money from the tickets and concession will go towards class activities and band trips to help alleviate some of the costs,” she explained.

“This year the Grade 8 band students are going to Whistler and the Grade 7s are going to Langley.”

The concert is geared towards families, said Glover, with tickets being affordably priced at $5.

“There will also be an adoration box out as well for those who wish to give more,” she added.

Towers and Trees and FallBrigade are two local up and coming bands, Glover said.

“The evening opens with FallBrigade at 7 p.m., then there will be an intermission and then Towers and Trees will play,” she said.

“Both bands are local and both play really great music.

“Towers and Trees have been around for a while. They’re going on tour in B.C. and Alberta in April, and FallBrigade are an up and coming brother and sister band with a folky sort of sound.”

Glover added both bands will also have their merchandise available for sale during the concert.

RockFest 2014 will take place in the gymasium at North Saanich Middle School (10400 McDonald Park Rd. in Sidney) on Thursday, Feb. 20 from 7 to 9 p.m.

Tickets are available in advance only (none will be available at the door) until 3:30 p.m. on Feb. 20. They can be obtained at the North Saanich Middle School office or by emailing
