All Vancouver community centres will be closed for the coming weeks, so Carnival Band and Greenhorn are cancelled for the time being.
The Carnival Band’s weekly rehearsals are held at the seniors’ lounge across from the library at Britannia Community Centre. The address is 1661 Napier Street in Vancouver. We meet every Monday evening from 7:30 to 10. Bring just about any instrument you can carry, or slap on your dancing shoes, and get ready for a good time. No auditions. All are welcome.
On Saturday morning the band busked near the famous Saltspring Island Saturday Market.

CFRO creates audio files of all their shows.
This is a dynamic site and the page location will change daily. Look for:
a) The Lesbian Show from April 15 (7:00 p.m)
b) the Art Relations (8:00 p.m.)
On Thursday regular time slots were replaced by the 35th Anniversary Extravaganza.
The band is featured as follows
The Lesbian Show slot at 0:00 mins. and about 26:00 mins.
Art Relations slot at 0:00 and about 29:00 mins.

On Thursday evening the band played for the Homeless Soccer fundraising event held at the Rickshaw.
The PFC (Portland Football Club) Homeless Soccer Team hopes to raise enough money to take the team to South America for the Homeless Soccer World Championships.
Roisin and John Cl.
The evening wasn’t without surprises. On a whim Marc invited the band to come down the street to CFRO, 102.7, Co-op Radio to play a couple of tunes on air.

When the dust settled the band had played four tunes on Marc’s show, and Fred, Eddie, Marc, Roisin, Wayne, Tim and Ross squeezed into the studio to jaw with Marc for 10 minutes or so.
