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.

Ana Miura, Amanda Rheaume, Amy Campbell, and Sarah Loucks all came out to the Red Canoe Cafe, Wilno Station Inn for an evening of good music and good food to raise money for their campaign against breast cancer. CHCR came out and supported them as they shared their songs and their stories from the road. Wilno was the first stop on the Ontario leg of their cross-Canada tour. These talented women have picked up a great cause and are donating every cent from the tour to breast cancer research.
Tonight, they will be in Peterborough, at The Splice. Catch their show at 7 pm. On Saturday, they will be in Pembroke in the Cafe Ole at 9 pm. For more information or to make donations, visit the Babes For Breasts website.
