The Lumby Legion rocked all day and all night when local bands and singers performed for the Musicians Helping Our Legions event Saturday, Nov. 7.

The event saw musicians of all genres and styles volunteer their time and talents. Performances took place around the clock from noon to midnight, and was part of a movement in support of Royal Canadian Legions across the country.

All proceeds raised remain at the local branch where the event was held.

“The Legion would like to thank all the musicians that played: Chill Billies, The Lumby Connection,  Dave Johnston, Red Dog, Dennis & Youst, Zita-Marie Boudreau, Lee Worman, Local Smoke, Christine Kendall Ward, Rewind, The Mabel Lickers, The Adam Dekker Orchestra, and The Handles,” said Colleen Fielding, on behalf of the Lumby Legion.
