Al McGee played for numerous sanctioned Live Music for Charity events including Play it Forward 2015 with the band  "Big Shot" and in 2016 with "Tribute to Southbound Freeway" helping to raise proceeds for children and youth programs "Garage Band Live!" and "Under the Big Top." An amazing musician, always there to assist others, a wonderful friend and very much loved by his family.

Our story

In October 2013 the first Live Music for Charity event was held with over 200 people showing up and 18 amazing musicians sharing their talents in 3 popular bands. 

The bands are either currently popular or popular in their day.  Many of the musicians are professional musicians, some have not played for many years...it was wonderful to hear and see the hours and hours of rehearsing, reconnecting of friendships, coming together to entertain and share their love of music and give back to their community. Together, that evening, they raised $10,130 for the Stollery Children`s hospital foundation.
