[T]he Blasters realize that a little bit of time has gone by since our last update. Heck, our last gig on March 2 was over a month ago and we never told you guys how much we raised. So here we go…

Our last gig was a total success. Not only did we reconnect with our friends at Christie Lake Kids, but together we raised $4659 from the ticket sales and 50/50 draw. That’s pretty good! Christie Lake also had plenty of great prizes to give away including 200 Level ticktes to a Ottawa – Boston NHL game later that month.


Brianna Herdman and Patrick Bickerton. Nothin quite like playing in a band with your dad.


We would like to thank all of you who came out to show your support. Christie Lake continues to be a great organization for young people in our city. They do such great work and we are proud to help out whenever we can.

If you happened to be on your feet during the show, your dance moves may have been captured by Peter Croal. Peter has attended most, if not all of our performances and kindly provides us with great photos of the night. Peter’s photos of our event events can be seen here.

Looking forward, the Blasters have decided to cancel their May 4 performance with Hogsback Brewery due to logistic reasons. If you purchased a ticket to this event you will be refunded within a few days. Don’t worry though, the Blasters will be returning to the stage soon *cough* June 14 *cough*. Detail to come.

See you next time,

Barry, Chris, Tim, Mur, Lance, Brian, Craig & Pat
