Imagine life WITHOUT MUSIC.
2 iconic Winnipeg fundraiser shows - EGOpicks’ POP PUNK PARTY and Red Tie Productions’ 90’s TRIBUTE SHOW come together on May 16th to support the people that bring us the very thing that we turn to every day to brighten our moods - MUSIC.
Two bands - Two musical themes - Live from Winnipeg’s beloved Park Theatre stage.
The 12/21 - Winnipeg’s endearing and energetic trio of brothers playing all your POP PUNK favorites
NIR-VAN DOWN BY THE RIVER - a collaborative of top Winnipeg musicians playing an epic set of chart toppers from the 90’s.
PLUS: Very special guests from both the US and Canadian music scenes.

With the money raised, donations of thanks will be made to the Park Theatre, and the bands and livestream crew - who all came into this simply to help others. The rest of the funds raised will be donated to the Unison Benevolent Fund’s COVID RELIEF FUND - which provides discreet financial and mental health support to Canada’s musicians, and music industry workers.
Let’s all come together to give back to the industry that has been there for us through the Covid-19 pandemic - despite being among the most deeply affected. They were among the FIRST to be shut down, and will be among the LAST to get back to work and start to recover. Our musicians and live performance crews deserve our help to get them through the rest of this pandemic, until they can hit the road, and light up the stages of our live music venues across the country once again.
We have decided not to set a formal ticket price - but rather encourage people to donate what they can. This way, everyone can tune in - and be a part of the efforts.
Everyone values music in some way shape or form, so we know that everyone will dig deep and donate as much as they can to help our beloved Canadian artists and those who do the work ‘behind the scenes’ in the music industry.
