The Capitol Centre’s Shared Benefit virtual concert series’ final act is North Bay’s the Maple Hills Project.
Since June, the Shared Benefit series has featured live performances at the Capitol Centre which viewers can watch on Facebook live, with donations to the Capitol Centre being accepted. All donations have been split equally between the venue and the artists.
The grand finale on August 27 features the Maple Hills Project – a group of longtime North Bay musicians.
“We lost many bookings as most events have been cancelled. We have a very devoted group of people who come out to all our gigs and have been following everything we have put online. To be able to perform a virtual concert for them from the Capitol Centre stage will be fun.,” said band member Mark Robinson, “The Capitol Centre has supported
local musicians for many years. It was an easy decision to do this in order to show some support back to the Capitol Centre.”
The band consists of Robinson, Pat O’Kane, Robert Bilan, Rob Aultman and Doug Herbrand. The five met at a house party in 2013 located at Maple Hill Road in Powassan, which served as the inspiration for the band’s name.
The final virtual concert will be streamed live on the Capitol Centre’s Facebook page on August 27 at 7 pm.
