Rick Keene Music Scene – Brian Greenway Talks April Wine’s 50th Anniversary and Rock for Dimes

I like to Rock …

Brian Greenway joined April Wine during the summer of 1977. Right before the band reached enormous success internationally. The album Nature of The Beast put the band into places they had never been before, although before was nothing to sneeze at.

The new guy – Greenway is still touring with April Wine as they celebrate their 50th Anniversary . Not bad for the second longest member of April Wine and a forklift driver?

Please listen below to my chat with Brian. Hear April Wine tales and information about Rock for Dimes

Rock for Dimes Montreal Raises $40,000 Plus !

Montrealers love their music …

How else can an explanation be given for the generous outpouring of love and money last evening at The Virgin Mobile Corona Theater.

The eight annual Rock for Dimes took place. An event which places  corporate bands against one another to ultimately decide a winning crown. A gilded topping. A notch in the music belt …

However, it is not the bands which win. The real winners are the receivers of the generosity and hard work of March of Dimes Canada. An organization which allocates funds to many categories of people in need.

Nobody’s Business won as the best band of the evening. All the bands put on a great show !

Last night, over $40,000  was raised to help the organization carry on their tradition of helping the less fortunate. Thank you Montreal. Thanks to all the musicians and …

Thank you March of Dimes!

Rock for Dimes Montreal; Raising Eyebrows and Money for Great Causes!

Rock for Dimes Montreal is entering it’s eight year. By the amount of money raised so far – it would appear to be in it’s 20th incarnation.

A lot of money raised in a short time means two things; Montrealers are generous and Montrealers love to Rock n Roll!

Rock for Dimes is a charity evening which places ‘cover’ bands in direct competition with one another. In a friendly way – of course. The winners get to gloat for one year until they return to defend their crowns and pride.

A year long reign as the Kings of Rock n’ Roll!

Please listen below as Marc Dore; the chairman for Rock of Dimes Montreal – explains everything involved for the evening. He speaks of the origins of the March of Dimes and how Brett ( The Hit Man) Hart and William Shatner are involved …

Marc? Rock me Baby …
