October 9th, 10pm at MAKE coffee + stuff on Corydon, YPM & Friends hosted our first ever coffee house fundraiser. First note of the night was played by our Minister of Labour, Mitch van Ineveld, who shared with us some of their favourite songs on guitar. They were soon joined by their lovely friend Emma, who harmonized with Mitch’s music.
The next act was a rhythmically complicated jazz saxophone duet by the Minster of Rural Development, Daniel Denton, and the Minister of Publications, Nolan Smith. The groove was definitely in the air! Sitting still was not an option, the runs alone… just fantastic! Following that, was The Hard Maybes who made their world debut! Made up of multiple cabinet members, the coffee house came alive with their musical renditions.
Everyone who performed did a wonderful job showing how diverse and talented the YP and friends community is. But hands down, our final act of the night, Holly and the Muse with our own Senator Beverly on Ukelele, stole the show. Their song was a hit and if you missed it, it can be heard in the hums of every audience members who had the pleasure of listening. Hopefully next time you will join us!
