One of the many fun events of Juno Week is the hockey game between a bunch of musicians and some NHL alumni. If you’re going to be in the Hamilton area for this year’s Junos, the game will happen at Mountain Area on March 13.
The rockers: Jim Cuddy (Blue Rodeo), Devin Cuddy (The Devin Cuddy Band), bassist Jon Gallant (Billy Talent), guitarist Jeremy Widerman (Monster Truck), and indie rock singer-songwriter Luke Doucet (Whitehorse). More players will be drafted soon.
The NHL Alumni: Montréal Canadiens and Calgary Flames defenseman, Ric Nattress, Mark Napier (Montréal Canadiens, Edmonton Oilers), Brad Dalgarno (New York Islanders), Gary Roberts (Toronto Maple Leafs, Calgary Flames), Troy Crowder (New Jersey Devils, Detroit Red Wings) and from the Canadian Women’s National Hockey Team, Tessa Bonhomme, Sami Jo Small and Natalie Spooner.
Tickets to JUNO Cup are $20 (plus service charges) and are available at all Ticketmaster outlets or at ticketmaster.ca. The game starts at 7:30pm.
JUNO Cup has raised over $800,000 over the past 11 years. All proceeds benefit MusiCounts.
