Verdazo Analytics President Bertrand Groulx has been playing a mix of Christmas songs, rock favourites and even an original as part of a multi-day busking engagement to raise funds for YYC Tech Gives. All funds raised are being donated to The Calgary Food Bank. Groulx – a longtime amateur guitar player and singer – has raised almost $2500 in his first two days busking over the lunch hour between Brookfield Place and Bow Valley Square. The gigs actually mark his first-ever public performances. His setlist has included: Good Riddance, English Girls, Another Lonely Day, Hey Jude, an original song called Just Right, along with a host of seasonal favourites like Blue Christmas, Silver Bells and Jingle Bell Rock. Bertrand will perform again Monday December 17 and Wednesday December 19. We hope you’ll come down to cheer him on – and drop a few bucks in the guitar case for YYC Tech Gives and The Calgary Food Bank. Or, you can donate to Verdazo’s YYC Tech Gives page online.
