Mark your calendar for Saturday, October 12th. The Sooke Baptist Church is host to a wonderful uplifting event, which will celebrate our resilience and community spirit. We all remember the fire of July 31st, 2013 at the local Evergreen Mall, which also destroyed the Sooke Dance Studio, owned by Carole Cave. Both Carole and her studio have become icons in the Sooke Community for dance education and performances. For now, a temporary location is being established to keep dancer's dancing until a final location can be found and readied. While insurance will help replace some of the material items lost, it will not cover all of the expenses incurred with establishing a temporary and eventually permanent dance studio. The community support, thus far, has been really terrific and without ongoing encouragement and enthusiasm, re-establishing the Dance Studio after the struggles imposed would have felt too overwhelming.
We have a fantastic evening of music to entertain and delight you. Join us as we come together in support of Carole Cave and the Sooke Dance Studio. The line-up of diverse musicians donating their time to grace our stage are: Adam Dobres, Blue Tattoo Blues Band, Taylor Caspersen, Gord Phillips, Bernie Radelfinger & Kyle Lysionek.

Adam Dobres is a natural born guitarist with a sensitive ability to embody any style of music. Although he is classically trained, Adam thrives in exploring any style of music his heart desires. Adam is like a guitar chameleon- he fully embodies the energy and spirit of whatever music he playing. While still in high school Adam joined an 18 piece Jazz Big Band where his ear for musical arrangement and production grew at a fast pace.
Blue Tattoo Blues Band is a 5 piece. Vancouver Island based original music writing that delivers epic tales of the blues...finely crafted edgy blues in the dance party style...treat yourself...come hear the cry of the blues harp...
Taylor Caspersen is a local musician, he's ready to rock your socks off, with a variety of acoustic rock. Taylor has been playing for 6 years, he is a charismatic and a delightful entertainer.

Gord Phillips is a passionate and powerful entertainer. His blues infused, folk rock style has been compared with the likes of early Rolling Stones and Steve Earle combined. Gord enjoys connecting with the audience and when the opportunity arises he takes the time to give the back story to his songs. It’s his way of making each performance feel like a unique experience for the audience.
The Silent Auction is still actively receiving donations but already promises to also be a key highlight to the evening and well worth your bidding favour. Auction items from local artists, craftsman, and businesses also speak to the generosity and kindred spirit felt by those donating to help one of their own, a small local business owner who can use some help to get re-established.
Here is the Online Silent Auction website:
Some select items will be posted by this Saturday (Oct. 5) evening for early bidding. Please see the site for more information.
