Doc­tors hea­ding Rol­ling Stones tri­bute show Sa­tur­day

Fun­drai­ser ai­ding pal­lia­tive care home

L'Etoile - - IN OTHER WORDS -

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. For in­for­ma­tion call the home at 450 202-2202.
