On Saturday, December the 13, Dubvibe played at the Lions Hall in Killaloe. It was part of a craft fair and concert event. At six, the doors opened and people had the opportunity to shop local. Products included hand-made soaps and beeswax candles, jewellery and mosaics, and organic baked goods from all kinds of local farms and craftsmen.
It was a great night to listen to reggae. Dubvibe filled the hall with dancing tunes. Tk2000 a.k.a. Tanya Kornobis, singing and playing keyboard. She had Greg Zawidski on lead guitar, on a guitar he handcrafted, no less. Kevin Munroe played rhythm guitar. Jude was on bass. They had two drummers, both the Martel boys, keeping the beat. They played a lot of originals from Boogiewall Soundsystem, as well as newer songs written by Kevin Munroe. There were lots of Bob Marley covers, too, for what is a night of reggae without Bob Marley?
The show went until 1 o’clock and still people wanted more. It was a great time and hopefully they play again soon.

There are a lot of exciting changes happening at CHCR at this time. The building hosting CHCR has just been bought by Peter Benner. Renovations have begun on the building. This will include a sound-proofed booth for broadcasting and much more.
CHCR has been going along for ten years now and it is time for changes. There are so many plans for CHCR to make it as successful as possible. In the future, it is sure to contribute even more to our community. The future is bright for CHCR.
Volunteers are welcome. Contact Peter Benner to see what you can do to help convert the building into a great radio station and community centre.
