Regina’s Band Swap raises $4,420 for Carmichael Outreach

Queen City’s third annual band swap pits local musicians in 24-hour challenge

The Regina edition of Band Swap has raised $4,420 for Carmichael Outreach, according to organizers.

The event, which took place at The Exchange, saw 35 local musicians being randomly dropped into seven new bands. The bands were given 24 hours to rehearse a set of covers drawn from a hat.

And it looked like one heck of a time!

Carmichael Outreach is a volunteer-driven, non-profit organization providing Regina’s core surrounding area with everything from clothing, food and household goods to harm reduction services, health education and counselling referrals.

For those of you in Saskatoon, Band Swap will be taking place tonight at Amigos.
