Every year broadcaster-producer-empresario Jaymz Bee celebrates his birthday with at least one fundraising event for charity. This year will mark his biggest yet with a series of simultaneous concerts held in ten rooms at Old Mill Toronto that will benefit Unison Benevolent Fund.
Jaymz Bee’s Caravan of Music is a four hour event where hundreds of people tour the various rooms at Old Mill Toronto, taking in a few songs from each band in each room. Tickets (ie. a Passport) are $40 and get you into all of the rooms. As you exit the room your passport is stamped and those with completed passports (meaning those who have been inside every room at least once) are entered in a draw for some fabulous prizes at the end of the night.
The night also features a VIP Gala Dinner from 6-8 pm with a special concert from Tom Cochrane and friends. Gala tickets can be purchased for $200 and ticket holders also have full run of the Caravan that goes from 8pm to Midnight. You can purchase tickets for the VIP Gala Dinner and the Caravan here.
Having helped shape the musical landscape for future generations of Canadian artists, Tom Cochrane remains one of only 3 male Canadian singer songwriters to have a diamond certified album in Canada (over a million copies sold). Mad Mad World is now around 1.7 million in Canada, and at over 3 million worldwide. Songs such as "Life Is A Highway" and "Lunatic Fringe" have been international hits and continue to garner much airplay around the world.
Throughout his career, Tom has thrown his support behind a wide range of worthy causes. He has traveled the world, including Africa 9 times and Asia twice on behalf of World Vision. He helped spearhead the Canada for Asia initiative, entertained our troops in Afghanistan, raised money for Parkinson’s research, has performed at Live 8, in Tears Are Not Enough, Young Artists for Haiti, and more.
