Battle of the Bar Bands
March 8, 2013 marks the 8th annual Victoria Battle of the Bar Bands at the Edelweiss Club. Those who attended last year know that the competition is fierce and we have a rockin’ legal community. We have a spectacular venue with delicious food and well-priced libations, a great stage and a terrific dance floor that was well-used throughout the night. With a multitude of door prizes donated from local businesses, few people went home empty handed last year.This event comes but once a year.
Don’t miss out!
For tickets and to sponsor a table, contact Krystle Gill (250-388-9477 ext 240 or
). General admission tickets are $25 and law student tickets are $15. Purchasing a sponsor table is $350 and includes 8 tickets, 1 bottle of wine or jug of beer for the table, and premium reserved seating. Cheques are made payable to the “Victoria Bar Association”.
We try to showcase bands that are made up primarily of practicing lawyers from the Victoria area. We also anticipate the participation of visiting bands. In the past, we’ve had bands from Vancouver and Nanaimo. This year we have some fresh talent coming to the stage.Our event is on the original Vancouver Battle of the Bar Bands which has been held for over 10 years at the Commodore Ball Room. There are now similar battles held in Kelowna and Nanaimo. All four raise funds for the Canadian Bar Association Benevolent Society which supports people in the justice community who have health or personal challenges. In Victoria, we have provided tens of thousands of dollars to the Society to assist people in need. Dinner is available as of 6:00pm and the live entertainment starts at 7:15pm. See you there!
