It was an intimate evening with friends and supporters where laughter and stories were shared amongst the enchanting harmonies of Ash & Bloom (Matt McKenna and James Bloemendal). Our amazing local talent, Cameron George Aitken, treated the audience with a an opening act that was totally awesome and set the tone for the rest of the show.
As for Ash & Bloom, they captivated the audience with heart-felt and personal songs from their new album “Let the Storm Come”. The duo was happily engaging; poking fun at pre-teen hobbies and the quirky relationship they had with the city they call home. Both kind and talented, the entire performance is one that many will carry with them for years to come!
You could just tell that they love doing what they do by the way they were able to engage the crowd as the crowd sang along. Their down to earth personalities, made it really easy for us to work with them to make this event a huge success. We were able to raise over $800 in funds that help support our Core Build program for our upcoming build in Spring 2015’ says Farrukh Khan, Event Planning and Marketing Assistant at HFHSSMA. Thank you Steve Alexander at Loplops for donating the space to us for this event, Case’s Music and Shabby Motlëy Handicraft for their support with ticket sales, all of the community members that came out to show support, the volunteers and staff at Habitat that made this event possible.
