Marc Nelson Memorial Celebration

Please join us for a gathering to celebrate the life of our friend Marc Robert Nelson. There will be music, laughter, stories, toasts, and good times to commemorate a wonderful human being and musician.

There will be no cover charge but we will be taking anonymous donations for Marc's beautiful children, Jack and Evelyn.

There is plenty of parking, great staff, good food, plenty on-tap, and a venue fit to hold an audience for a person so well-loved and respected.

We hope the spirit of Tex Lawlor will be present!

Players note: There will be backline, so please bring your instruments and private-message Johnny Poptart with your song ideas that you would like perform with Marc in mind.

Marc would be thrilled to know that the community he so loved came out to pay their respects and have a toast in his honour.
