Rock out for outdoor learning

The Scattered Atoms will keep dancers moving at the Boogie For Nature fundraiser for outdoor learning.

  • May. 20, 2015 12:00 p.m.

The Elks Hall will rock out on May 30 when outdoor enthusiasts gather to support the Shuswap Outdoor Learning Foundation.

The Boogie for Nature dance and silent auction will feature one of the Southern Interior’s hottest groups, Jon Treichel’s Scattered Atoms Blues Band.

Based in Kamloops, the well-seasoned Scattered Atoms bring a gritty and funky music to audiences throughout the region.

The band features the sledgehammer vocals of Ernie Ware, the slinky guitar of Jon Treichel, Graham How on trumpet and soulful flugelhorn, Neil Brun with his ultra funky, bottom shaking bass and Richard Graham on bass and drums.

They serve up a heap of grooves with classic blues, R&B and a little old school rock-and-roll that keep dancers shaking all night long.

Opening for the act will be a new Salmon Arm group called Butterball.

All funds raised will go to support the work of the Shuswap Outdoor Learning Foundation, which provides summer camping experiences for young people, as well as outdoor school programs.

Since this organization was established in 2013, the number of programs has grown exponentially, with eight summer day and overnight camps scheduled for this year.

Tickets are available at Acorn Music. For more information, or to donate items for the silent auction, contact Ceren Caner at 250- 833-7593.
