A Brian Melo Christmas: “Toy With Me”

“Toy with Me”, says recording artist Brian Melo. On Friday, December 16 at the Casbah Lounge Brian Melo will perform a FREE show in support of the kids at McMaster Children’s Hospital. The show is a live and intimate, acoustic performance that defies tradition, featuring 7 guest musicians. Entrance is free to the public, but Brian is asking all attendees to bring a new toy or gift for the kids ranging 2-17 at McMaster Children’s Hospital. Gift cards are welcomed particularly for the older kids. The doors open at 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm, performance time is 7:30 pm. Guests can pick up a reservation voucher at Casbah Lounge on Dec 1st only from 6:00 pm to reserve their space. Supply is limited.

On Saturday, December 17 the following morning, Brian Melo will visit the kids at McMaster Children’s Hospital and spread some holiday cheer. Brian and guests will arrive with toys and gifts, season’s greetings, and of course his guitar to perform for and fellowship with the kids and staff. “McMaster Children’s Hospital is thrilled to have Brian Melo perform for the children in our wards. It is sure to be a highlight of their day,” Said Peter Fitzgerald, president of McMaster Children’s Hospital.

The Dec 16 performance will be Brian’s first public performance in Hamilton for 2011. Brian arrives back home, in Hamilton on December 3 after a 3 month school tour across 6 Canadian provinces. “It’s heart-warming to see an artist donate their time and energy to a cause for children, at a time of year when it matters most,” said Brodie Schwendiman (The Casbah). Brian Melo, McMaster children’s Hospital, and Casbah Lounge joined in a triune effort to share the spirit of the holiday season, and all are welcomed.
