BANC 33 1/3 featuring: Emmylou Harris, Sass Jordan and Ellis Hall
BANC (Benevolent Artists National Charity) is excited to announce its first public event called 33 1/3 (BANC traditionally does only Private Events for 200 people).
BANC is a charity-focused band who has raised over 3.3 Million dollars for charity over the last 4 years through its private concerts and live auction events. Its goal is to raise 10 million for charity by 2021/2022. BANC has played venues like the Ryman (Nashville), Whiskey a Go Go (LA) and The King Eddy (Calgary).
BANC will be joined by 14-time Grammy winner Emmylou Harris and Canada's very own multi-award winning Queen of Rock, Sass Jordan. Calgary's Revv52 will also be supporting the show with a 52-person Choir of magnificent singers.
BANC consists of a revolving door of world-class singers and musicians. On the October 29th roster will be Sass Jordan, Jim Carter, Erin Carter, Rudy Sarzo/Derek Sharp/Will Evankovich (The Guess Who), Pat Steward (Bryan Adams, The Odds) and Ellis Hall (Tower of Power) and producer Steve Rokosh.
The BANC Event, "33 ⅓"...is named as such, as all profits from the evening will be split 3-ways between 3 different charities.
1. Indigenous Missing and Murdered
2. Bonapartes Animal Rescue, Nashville, United States
3. Canada's National Music Center, Calgary
There will be VIP reception and a live auction for all floor tickets priced over $333.33 each. $600 tickets will receive an exclusive meet and greet with the band.

Suspended high above the stage is a laminated, 185,000-pound (90-ton) spruce-wood acoustical canopy that can be raised or lowered to tune the hall according to the specific needs of each performer.
Over its 32 year life, Jack Singer Concert Hall has undergone many upgrades to ensure that it remains a state-of-the-art performance hall, including a new million dollar sound system with state-of-the-art hearing assistance in 2004, a complete replacement of all its analog sound boards in 2014, and the future replacement of all of its seats to be completed by fall 2017.
