You are here
Once again, legendary singer-songwriter Andy Kim has rounded up an impressive line-up of talent to join him at his annual charity concert in Toronto. This year's Andy Kim Christmas Show, at the Mod Club Dec. 15, will also feature Rush's Alex Lifeson, Ron Sexsmith and Platinum Blonde.
Also on the bill is The Regent Park School of Music Choir, which recently joined Roger Waters onstage at the Air Canada Centre for his 30th Anniversary of The Wall concerts. More guests are still to be announced. Santa is usually in attendance, but has yet to perform.
Montreal-born Kim — who has sold more than 33 million albums and is the man behind such massive hits as "Sugar Sugar" and "Rock Me Gently — started The Andy Kim Christmas Show six years ago. To date, the event has raised more than $60,000 for select charities. This year's recipient is Regent Park School of Music (www.rpmusic.org), which has benefitted from the fundraiser in 2009.
The evening is being presented by Sentry Investments, Long & McQuade and CP24. Tickets are on sale now for $25 at all Ticketmaster outlets, Rotate This, Soundscapes or call 416-870-8000 to charge by phone. Doors open at 7 p.m. The Mod Club is located at 722 College St.
