Downchild's Sunday Unison Event Raises The Roof At Massey Hall

By FYI Staff

Downchild, one of the planet’s foremost, most fêted, longest-running blues outfits, is virtually reuniting with Dan Aykroyd, Colin James, James Cotton, Colin Linden, Jonas, and Wayne Jackson of The Memphis Horns in a Massey Hall concert with the proceeds from this historic event benefitting the music industry’s favourite and most vital charity org, the Unison Benevolent Fund.


If you haven’t cottoned on yet, the all-star concert is a rewind of Downchild’s fabulously famous 40th-anniversary musical party that took place on November 14, 2009.

Show date is this Sunday, June 21 at 7 pm EST and the stream can be found on the band’s official YouTube channel.

“With the right social media promotion, I think we can make this a very successful event and raise some money for Unison!,” Diesel Management’s Todd Littlefield tells FYI. It’s a tip-jar event, so be sure to be generous and be sure to watch because it was an event to remember featuring a band and a guest list that just can’t be beaten.

Donations to Unison in conjunction with the Downchild concert can be made by texting UNISON to 45678 or visiting UnisonFund.ca/Donations/Spotify
