An Evening for Jack with Paul Reddick * Postponed

Notice of Postponement Due to COVID-19

Monday, March 16, 2020

Like everyone else in the world, Hugh’s Room Live is closely monitoring the situation around the COVID-19 outbreak. Based on the information currently available, we have made the painfully difficult decision to postpone all shows through to the end of April, effective immediately.
If you have tickets for a postponed show, please watch for more information about rescheduling. We will notify every ticket holder when a new date and venue are found for each the shows on our calendar. If you are unable to attend a rescheduled show, we ask everyone to please consider their ticket purchase a donation to Hugh’s Room Live instead of requesting a refund. As a non-profit registered charity, we will gladly send you a tax receipt for the equivalent amount of your purchase.

Like so many art, culture and hospitality organizations, our artists and staff are struggling greatly during this time. We encourage everyone in our audience here to continue supporting live music wherever possible until we reach the other side of this pandemic that has so devastated the arts and culture of our society. We will of course be reevaluating our decision on a daily basis as we navigate the new circumstances around the pandemic, please know that your continued support, understanding and advocacy in the interim will add much-needed sustainability to our venue and industry at large. Thank you.

An Evening for Jack with Paul Reddick 
Advance $25 / Door $30 *

Doors: 6:00PM
Performance: 8:30PM

On November 19, 2018, my husband, Jack, died of cancer. On March 21, 2019, we celebrated his life with a concert at Hughs Room Live called “A Night for Jack with Paul Reddick”. We heard great blues, had a lot of fun, and raised over $5000 for the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation. Jack would have been absolutely thrilled. He was a huge fan of Paul’s and indeed it was Paul’s album, Ride the One, that we played as Jack died.

It’s time to do it again,

Please join me on March 26, 2020 for A Night for Jack with Paul Reddick 2.0. We won’t mess with a solid formula – the same great blues from Paul and his band, excellent a la carte dinner from the Hugh’s Room Live kitchen, some fun with a silent auction with items on offer to suit every taste and every pocketbook, and some words about the importance of cancer research.

See you soon,

Celia Chandler
