Passionate about bikes? Fanatical about Winnipeg’s thriving music scene? Satisfy your craving for both as cycling advocates Bike Winnipeg presents Romi Mayes Saturday June 7th at the Unitarian Universalist Church. Tickets to see this Juno nominated, five time WCMA award winner, are only $20. All proceeds from the performance go to Bike Winnipeg and the Winnipeg Adult Education Centre’s Commuter Cycling Club to promote cycling education and advocacy in Winnipeg.
Renowned as one of the hardest working independent musicians touring the globe today, Mayes has received extensive critical acclaim, performing what BBC’s Bob Harris described as “Music from the heart and soul”. Over her career spanning two decades, she has created five full length albums and has performed her music to audiences around the world.
Romi Mayes is a force to be reckoned with that will be a household name for years to come. She is only getting better with each album and one thing you can bet on is this hard core prairie gal has no plans to burn out or fade away.
We`re also happy to announce that Chef Alexander Svenne will be bringing Bistro 7¼’s signature flavours and style to our presentation of Romi Mayes to tempt your taste buds. It promises to be a fantastic night of music, food and community, all in support of a great cause. So get your tickets now!
