GRAVENHURST — Rock ‘n’ roll and Rigatoni.
Alexis “Freddie” Wallace loves ’em both.
The KJ’s Muskoka barkeep, who turns 25 today, is continuing her summer community fundraisers again tomorrow with a clothing collection after last weekend’s successful food drive.
More than 100 food items and $100 in cash were raised Saturday night at a jam session band-a-thon.
Several singers, including Natasha Major and Jessica Smith acappella, got up on stage to perform.
And veteran musician magician Mike Mortimer, Gravenhurst’s most colourful and vibrant guitarist, rocked on into the night with Ray Parsons Jr. screaming out lyrics and otherwise keeping the party going loud and long.
The funders are the idea of another long-time local rocker, Rocky Puckler, who introduced acts in between collecting donations at the door with volunteers.
Wallace hopes Sunday’s day-long jam will be equally as good.
All are welcome, she says, to join in the fun and donate food and clothing or both.
