3 pm - 11pm

Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario: The Matthew Osborne Kitchener Memorial Show will celebrate the life and music of the late Matthew Osborne, one of Kitchener-Waterloo's most talented musicians.

On Sunday, June 6th, over 50 musical acts will gather together to perform in Matthew's honour at the Victoria Park Pavilion in Kitchener. Performers include Daddy Longlegs, Dinocopter, Rob Szabo, Mary Anne Epp, Lynn Jackson, Intrasition, Kicking Trudy, High Diving Act, Mark Perak, Organic Groove and many more. The Pavilion is located at 80 Schneider Avenue, in Kitchener's Victoria Park. The show will run from 3:00 pm until 10:00 pm.

The cost has been set at $5, although organizers promise no one will be turned away.

As testimony to the number of lives Matt touched during his too short life, The Matthew Osborne Kitchener Memorial Show is just one of three shows paying tribute to Matthew. Memorial shows are also being planned in Toronto and Guelph.

"Matthew John Osborne was an ever-present fixture almost anywhere live music was played in K-W for the last decade," states Brent Hagerman, a guitar player in one of Matt's bands and Echo Magazine editor, adding, "Besides being an immensely talented singer, songwriter, guitarist and writer (Matt contributed Echo's first ever wrestling story), Matt worked tirelessly at helping younger musicians gain exposure and confidence."

The City of Kitchener is donating the use of the venue at no cost. Sherwood Systems is donating all the necessary sound equipment needed to run the Kitchener memorial show.

At the time of his death, Matt was working on a CD, presently being completed by his band mates.

All proceeds from the memorial shows and CD will go to the Matt Osborne Musicians Trust Fund.

Wow, that is awesome

You planning to attend Mr. M??

Absolutely! Matt was a close friend of mine and I know a lot of the folks involved in this show, plus I'm co-organizing the Toronto show so I have to go see what they're doing in KW so we can one-up them in August. ;)

Seriously thou, this is going to well-worth checking out. Many of Matt's fantastic songs will be played, and the money raised is going to Matt's trust funds in support of young musicians.
