Rockers Someone to Blame find someone to benefit

Charity gig planned for Grotto

Last year, Kamloops classic rock band Someone to Blame set up at the Rock’n Firkin on a Saturday night and managed to raise $1,200 for charity Christmas Amalgamated.

This year, Rock for Christmas Amalgamated has moved to the Blue Grotto and has grown to four bands.

Someone to Blame will be joined by Inverse, Half Step Down and The Suzi Rawn Band for a night of rock for a good cause.

Bret Koroll started Someone to Blame last year. He plays guitar and sings in the band and is joined on stage by bandmates Jason Fulton (vocals and guitar), Steve Weisgerber (bass and vocals), Wade DuPont (drums) and Murray Linfitt (keyboard).

Koroll said he put it out there on Facebook and got a positive response from other bands hoping to help support the charity.

“Christmas time is a hard time for a lot of people and I just think they help out a lot for those people having trouble,” he said.

Koroll is following in the footsteps of his father, who was a regular contributor to the charity and died two years ago.

“I’m not doing it to benefit me, but it does benefit me by making me feel good that I can help. It’s something I can give that other people don’t have,” Koroll said.

The event will feature a 50/50 draw and 30 door prizes, including gift certificates and an acoustic guitar.

The night of music will be at the Blue Grotto, 319 Victoria St., on Sunday starting at 6 p.m. Admission is $5.
