Doctors heading Rolling Stones tribute show Saturday
Fundraiser aiding palliative care home
TA group of singing doctors will take to the stage Saturday in Saint-Lazare for a Rolling Stones tribute concert to aid the The Vaudreuil-Soulanges Palliative Care Residence Foundation (VSPCRF).
he Stone Doctors band was created in 2001 by two Montreal orthopaedic surgeons with a love for the music of The Rolling Stones. And though the members of the original band have changed somewhat, the well educated group continues its mandate to perform free of charge for charity events in Canada and the U.S. They’ll headline the Aug. 23 concert at Bar Chez Maurince in Saint-Lazare.
Steven Lambert, a volunteer at the Hudson palliative care home got the idea to mount the concert after attending a Stone Doctors performance last spring. Lambert knew pairing a band of doctors and other professionals with a palliative care home offering free end-of-life services was the perfect fit for a facility that must raise the bulk of its operating funds.
“These musicians perform across North America and it is an honor to work with them,” Lambert noted.
The Stone Doctors is headed by founding member and orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Ian Dickey, lawyers Shaina Bronfen and John Murray, Natasha Caron a municipal employee, engineer Dan Gideon, Phil Taschereau, an industrial vendor, Randy Shute, a furniture dealer, and Garry Ciambella, who owns a software company.
The Stone Doctors tribute show will start at 9 p.m. on Aug. 23, at Bar Chez Maurice, 1897 ch. Ste-Angélique, Saint-Lazare. Tickets, $25 each, can be purchased on the Bar Chez Maurice website at: www.barchez maurice.qc.ca, or at the VaudreuilSoulanges Palliative Care Residence, 90 Como Gardens, Hudson.
