Do You Love Your Song?
Do You Love Your Song: A night of live music in celebration of Luke Jansen
Thursday, October 4, 2018 at 7 p.m.
Festival Place (Sherwood Park, AB)
$15 general admission
Luke Jansen, PSUA Vice President Events Fundraising (2015-2016) and President (2016-2017) loved music. Music was his way of reaching out to the world; music was the world’s way of reaching back. And yet, he was more than a musician—Luke was a debater and critical thinker, a skilled writer, a mentor. For Luke, living life creatively and analytically made life good. And we can’t help but wonder what he would be making, listening to and discussing if he were here today.
As we approach the first anniversary of his passing on October 6, we want to breathe life into the things he loved in the best way we know how: a night of live music with some of Luke’s favourite artists from Edmonton and beyond. Think of it as a night Luke would be stoked to attend with his friends, family and fellow music lovers. Everyone is invited to join in this evening in the spirit of a fabulous guy who so many of us knew and loved.
Tickets go on sale Tuesday, July 17 at 10 a.m. Call Festival Place Box Office ( 780-449-3378) for lowest price and the lowest service fees.
We are excited to welcome the following headliners!
