The Spirit of John, now in its third year, is an incredible night of music and revelry that celebrates John Mann, his music, and the powerful effect melody can have on memory.
Join Spirit of the West with host Dave Bidini for an incredible night of music with performances by Danny Michel, Andy Maize & Josh Finlayson (Skydiggers), Tom Wilson, Martin Tielli (Rheostatics), Kevin Kane (Grapes of Wrath), Danny Greaves (Watchmen), and many more.
Doors open at 7PM and performances start at 8PM on September 13, 2017 at the Mod Club Theatre, 722 College Street in Toronto, Ontario.
Since 2015, John has used the power of song to raise awareness about music therapy for people living with dementia. Now that his own young-onset Alzheimer’s has progressed it’s our turn to play the music with a set list of songs custom made by John’s friends and family to help unlock his memories.
All proceeds from the concert support the Alzheimer Society of Toronto’s Music Project, which provides personalized playlists and iPods for people living with dementia in Toronto. Concert-goers will be participating in the second annual Fund-A-Need, which aims to raise enough money to supply music to 400 people living with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, so get ready to donate!
