On November 23, 2015 The Cherry Trees Band had their first fundraising event at Hugh’s Room Live. The band is a group of Toronto musicians who recorded an album of original rock songs, entitled Change the World, with all proceeds to benefit the Water for Life Initiative, part of GAIN (Global Aid Network of Canada). It was a fantastic sold out night at the club, and was the last event of the “Change the World” Campaign covered by The Globe and Mail, 1010 Radio, David Peck Live, Top Broker Magazine, and other media. When complete, the team at Change the World raised funds to drill five (5) deep cap water wells, providing fresh, clean drinking water for 5,000 people in Africa.
In 2018, The Cherry Trees Band released their second album, Aqua, and they are ready to host another fun evening of music at Hughs Room Live on December 3, 2018.
To catch a video of our new music, head to our Facebook page.
Aqua is a rockier album with great vocal harmonies, classic rock roots and various guest artists contributing. Aqua is all original. Listen closely and you might hear sounds of the The Tragically Hip, Radiohead, Neil Young, Tom Petty, Wilco and Velvet Underground. Team Aqua comprises the band, more than thirty (30) volunteers and countless sponsors, all aiming to fund the construction of ten (10) new water wells in Africa, providing 10,000 people with clean, pure drinking water. This initiative provides real difference in the lives of people struggling for basic necessities, and will positively impact countless lives. This show is expected to SELL OUT so ticket purchases well in advance are highly recommended.
