\ TO DOWNTOWN \
Another year has passed to make it now four since the untimely passing of spunky Amy Louie, the petite but energetic fireball who was a longtime bar server/booker at her family’s Grossman’s Tavern, a real estate agent and a mother.
Amy, as we reported on February 5, 2011, [registered Moon.ca subscribers can read the original article from the then-hard copy publication on the Vault section of our website] passed away tragically before her time due to a heart condition few knew about.
But her memory lives on and, thanks to her family (bar owner Sam and his wife and her siblings Tony, Benson and Christine) and the many musicians who’ve knew her from performing there over the past few decades, her life will continue to benefit up-and-coming musicians.
Her family, aided by a diverse roster of players, established a scholarship bearing her name that has already benefitted several young talents.
Tonight members of the Grossman’s musical family, including Donnie “Mr. Downchild” Walsh, Danny Marks, Greg Godovitz, Brian Cober, Bruce Domoney, The Happy Pals, Caution Jam, Jerome Godboo & many more will gather for the fourth annual fundraiser for the cause.
Doors of the club at 379 Spadina Ave. open at 7 and the show starts at 8. It’s advisable to arrive early, as it will get jammed. A $20 donation is suggested.
