The Jeffersons, Sean Hogan, Wyatt and Tenille.

“I am so excited to have this event back in our community supporting the GPYESS,” says Event Organizer and Founder, Tenille, “And I can’t wait for everyone to hear the entertainment coming!”

“My favorite part of this event is the way that people come together with their Big Hearts to help youth at risk of homelessness. Three years ago I was inspired to start this formal concert fundraiser in honour of the Sunrise House/Grande Prairie Youth Emergency Shelter after hearing about the positive difference they make in our community and how many youth right here at home turn to it.”

Big Hearts For Big Kids is a spectacular evening of country music and entertainment on Saturday February 23rd, 2013 at the TEC Centre. This 600 ticket event will feature the musical talents of Canadian Country Music Award Winning Artists in two intimate, personal Songwriter’s Circles followed by headliner Deric Ruttan. The evening will involve appetizers, raffle items, a silent auction, and live auction in an intimate setting with amazing artists!

Headline Sponsors this year include Caron Measurement and Controls and Canadian Tire.

Over the past 3 years, the event has raised over $194,000 thanks to Grande Prairie’s incredible support. The Grande Prairie Youth Emergency Shelter has been able to help more families in need of assistance as a result of the growing awareness.

Tickets go on sale Monday, January 14th at the Crystal Centre Box office.
Please call (780) 538-0387 or purchase online www.crystalcentre.com.

The Jeffersons Announce Troubadour Tour

The Jeffersons are getting ready to head out on another tour soon. This time they will be in Alberta and will be joined by Duane Steele, Wyatt Easterling and Jake Matthews.

This is going to be an in-the-round style tour where they take turns singing songs that they’ve written and telling stories about them. This is The Jeffersons favorite kind of show…very intimate..lots of harmony…acoustic. It will be very much like The Bluebird Cafe in Nashville.

The Jeffersons may even add an early Christmas song or two in the mix since our Christmas album will be ready by then!
