 Legends Pub hosted a very successful day long fundraiser, Saturday, November 5 for a young woman who was  attacked and seriously injured while walking to work.

Karla’s Journey featured bands from Lethbridge and the Crowsnest Pass  including Dory and the Weathermen, Suit Jacket Society, Bryan Horvat, Uncovered, Tres Hombres from the Crowsnest pass, the Mark Hall Band and  local blues rock band Driving While Blind  preforming beginning at 4 p.m. until closing time.

 Together with the $10 cover rand successful silent auction, two  50 50 draws the event raised $8,160 for Karla and her family while she recovers in hospital.

I arrived at the end of the event due to other commitments as mm most of the crowd had trickled away. But I arrived in time to catch one of my favourite blues rock bands Driving While Blind, whose shows I always seem to miss.

In between bidding on silent auction items and chatting with friends, I was pleased to catch frontman/ guitarist Frank Gutjahr growl his way through popular rock hits like “Rocking In The Free World” and doing his best Bonn Scott impersonation  on AC DC’s “Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap,” rocking blues like “ I Just want to Make Love To You” and a hot, show stopping version of Johnny B Goode.”
 Then band was super tight as always, with an unstoppable groove and lots of crunchy guitar riffs and lots of solos.
