It's always amazing to see the music community come together to support one of its own.
In case you haven't already heard, one of Kelowna's well-loved full time performers, Floyd Vedan, was recently seriously injured in an incident that occurred a few weeks ago. Various reports have noted that he was at a house party when he was struck with a chair. That attack put him in the ICU for over a week and the whole music community has been very concerned for his wellbeing.
At a recent Parks Alive where Floyd was originally booked to perform, Floyd's daughter took a few moments on stage to share a song and some thoughts with the audience:
There have been a few small fundraisers for Floyd, but on September 6th FloydFest arrives at the Kelowna Community Theatre. Here are the details on the show:
