104.1 The DOCK is proud to present Radio for Radiation Benefit Concert VI, featuring legendary classic rock icon The Steve Miller Band, on November 19, 2014 at the Casino Rama Entertainment Centre.
104.1 The DOCK and KICX 106 have pledged half a million dollars to support the new Simcoe Muskoka Regional Cancer Centre. The “Radio for Radiation Campaign” assists in the purchase of a new CT Simulator suite. This suite provides residents of Simcoe and Muskoka treatment closer to home, rather than going to Toronto.
The Steve Miller Band has sold more than 30 million records in a career spanning more than 40 years. In its early years, the Steve Miller Band was a cornerstone of the burgeoning underground FM rock radio stations that were springing up across the country. The Steve Miller Band's 1973 single "The Joker" was an instant anthem, a breakthrough smash that shot all the way to No. 1. His 1978 album, "Greatest Hits 1974-78," became one of the best-selling releases of all-time, selling millions every year through the end of the century. At the height of the classic rock movement, the Steve Miller Band was one of the defining figures.
Hit songs, from 17 studio albums and three live albums, include "Rock 'n Me," "Fly Like an Eagle," "Jet Airliner," "Jungle Love," "Swingtown," "The Joker" and "Abracadabra."
The benefit show will open with special guests “Sonic Coalition”, a local band made up of business professionals who have helped raise over $500,000 for local charities. Sonic Coalition are Gerry Pilon, Jim Fairhead. Chris Adams and Barrie Mayor Jeff Lehman.
The Radio for Radiation Benefit Concert starts at 8pm on Wednesday, November 19 at the Casino Rama Entertainment Centre. Tickets will go on-sale Monday, July 28 at 2pm. Tickets may be purchased at the Casino Rama Box Office, all Ticketmaster locations, or on-line. Prices will range from $70 to $125.
