Held at the beautiful St. Louis Hotel in Calgary’s East Village, this year’s annual event is set to be an evening full of food, music, and cultural experiences.
Experience an Ethiopian Coffee Ceremony, dance to the live entertainment featuring Andrew Allen and
Olivia Penalva, and enjoy an array of delicious culinary offerings all in the heart of Calgary.
All proceeds of the evening will go to support the Education Support Centers in Africa
Allen’s DIY ability and optimistic attitude have served him well. He’s scored five Top 10 hits in Canada. His benchmark single “Loving You Tonight” was a lilting, sunny tune about an ideal romance, “Loving You Tonight” helped put Andrew on tour with acts like Bruno Mars, One Republic, Andy Grammer, The Script, Train, Joshua Radin and The Barenaked Ladies… with the official music video garnering more than 4 million views!
Radio play and songwriting aside, Andrew is a true live performer with an exceptional voice, incredible songs and limitless energy… not too mention a spatter of comic wit and story-telling ability that helps create a dynamic and interactive live show. He’s definitely an artist that embodies the term ‘live’.
Captivating audiences with her original music, Canadian pop up-and-comer, Olivia, got her start early with a debut album at just 13 years old!
Olivia saw her original Holiday tune ‘Christmas for Two’ hit the top 20 at Canadian radio, helping pave the way for her massive hit ‘Skyline’ which broke the top 40 on all formats, garnering more than 6000 spins!!!
She’s won countless songwriting competitions, toured every major radio station in the country, and is only just getting started. With a new single set for release in May of 2017, Olivia is definitely a pop star on the verge.
