RAK 26 - Jeff and Dave Turn 40, and raise a crap load of cash for Cancer

January 26th

RAK 26 - Jeff and Dave Turn 40 AND raise a crap load of cash for Cancer

For those who read these posts, that don't really know us personally ... Jeremy is a musician. His connections in the world of music are numerous... so, in short, we know some pretty cool people. :)

Two of our musician friends who have been playing music in various projects over the years, turned 40.  To celebrate this milestone birthday, they threw a huge party at The Artery in Edmonton. 

Dave and Jeff turn 40!

Let the festivities begin...

Dave and Jeff played music pretty much all night, show casing their various projects...

Dave and Jeff with Mae Anderson

Jeff and Neil Mac - their Project - The Dog and Pony Show...

Dave and Jeff with Amber Suchy and their Moscow Dynamo Project

Dave and Jeff with their long time band mates of Mustard Smile.

At the end of the night, they invited their musician friends up, for a super cool jam session...

A few of The Mishaps (Dave, Leah and Jeremy)
with Neil Mac on bass and Brandon Kruger on drums.

It was an epic night filled with fantastic music played by amazing people.

But, the wonder and amazement does not end there.

Instead of charging cover for this event and in lieu of gifts, Dave and Jeff asked that patrons make a minimum $5.00 donation at the door.  All funds raised went to the Alberta Cancer Foundation in memory of Dave's Dad, and the many of their other family and friends that have battled this disease.

For our RAK #26, I (Coreena) went to this party a few hours earlier than my Mishaps gigging husband.  I happily sat at the door welcoming guests as they arrived to this event, and accepted their donations on behalf of Dave and Jeff.

I will update with final totals, but by first tally's, this event raised in excess of $700!!  Way to go guys!

Happy 40th Dave!

Happy 40th Jeff!

For you both we hope this lap around the sun is filled with endless smiles, unconditional love, superstardom, much more music, and ample oppertunites to fulfill your passions.

Sending love

The Kornel/Peters Family

You're gonna rock 40.


UPDATE:  Final word...  Jeff and Dave raised $886.50 for Cancer...  SO AWESOME!!!
