Barry and the Blasters have been practicing our hearts out and we’ve never sounded better. For those who are going to our Feb. 11 show at Pier 21, not only are you in for an incredible night of music, but we have another special treat for our female fans. Our chosen charity, The Hospice at May Court,  has partnered with the Manotick Volunteer Firefighters to earn some extra much needed funds. The Manotick Volunteer Firefighters have published their own 2012 calendar. We are not sure what this means but we are sure that you do. There will be a contingent of firefighters at our show on Feb. 11. They will be selling their calendars for $20.

A portion of these proceeds goes to The Hospice at May Court and each calendar purchaser receives a ticket for a draw being held at the end of the show for a dinner for 10 prepared and served by the calendar men themselves. In addition, for every donation of $5 to The Hospice, the donor will receive another draw ticket. So, for all you holding a ticket to the Feb. 11 show, you are assured of one HOT evening!!!

For those not going to the show but want to purchase a calendar, please contact Ola Spec, 613-260-2906 x232 or Also, note that 2 tickets to the Feb. 26 Sens vs NY Islanders game + valet parking will be auctioned off at intermission at the show. What a night it’s going to be!!!
