This week on Post Everything, guest host Ken Miller took over to bring us a music themed episode. First, he spoke with Jeremy Tate of ThreeSixty Entertainment, a local Victoria company dedicated to bringing world and roots music to the local music scene. While still new in the Victoria scene, the company is focusing on showcasing exciting and innovative artists to the already loyal roots/world music lovers here in town.
Check out the interview below to hear about the process of bringing folk/world artists to town and how it benefits the community. For more information about the company, and for line-up and ticket information, please visit www.threesixtyentertainment.ca.
Ken also spoke with James Casper about the Vancouver Island Music Awards.
The VIMAs started in Victoria in 2002 in a community centre gymnasium. Every year, the VIMAs move to a new venue with a new jury, but always with the same mission: to celebrate, build awareness, provide a networking opportunity, acknowledge and reward excellence, and empower and engage the Vancouver Island music scene while setting a positive and professional example for youth. The VIMAs are a non-profit community event that also gives back. For example, the VIMAs support the Mustard Seed Bank in Victoria and non-perishable food donations will be accepted at their event. However, the VIMAs are currently facing a dire financial situation. You can check out the clip below or visit their blog (islandmusicawards.wordpress.com) to see how you can help. You can also listen to the interview below to hear why the awards are important for our community.
A special thanks to Ken for hosting the show this week!
Until next time!
