Big news out of SiriusXM Canada central. We’re presenting the SiriusXM Juno KickOff , featuring The Sheepdogs, Tokyo Police Club and Say Yes, Thursday March 12 in Hamilton, Ontario, the site of the 2015 JUNO Awards. The bands will be playing Hamilton’s historic Liuna Station. All the proceeds from tickets are going to MusicCounts, Canada’s music education charity associated with CARAS. It’s all part of SiriusXM’s ongoing dedication to music charities developed for youth. The gig is pretty much guaranteed to rock your socks off.
“The SiriusXM JUNO KickOff is the first major event during JUNO Week and to have amazing acts like The Sheepdogs and Tokyo Police Club on stage in Hamilton will be an electrifying way to kick off a very special weekend in Canadian music,” said Jeff Leake, Director, Music Programming, SiriusXM Canada. “It’s an added bonus that we get another chance to further support MusiCounts, who do so much to connect youth and music in this country.”
“We are excited to be partnering with our friends at SiriusXM Canada and the JUNO Host Committee for this kickoff concert,” said Allan Reid, President & CEO, CARAS/The JUNO Awards & MusiCounts. “There’s no better way to start JUNO Weekend than with some great music and all for a good cause – MusiCounts!”
For SiriusXM subscribers not in Hamilton, a live recording of the event will be broadcast at 8 pm EST on Saturday, March 14 on SiriusXM’s JUNO Radio. You can catch that special programming running through Sunday, March 15 on Iceberg Sirius channel 161 and The Verge XM channel 173.
