Saturday, July 27th - Great Danes In Need Benefit featuring Danny Echo, Train Wreck & The Walk-Ins @ The Fairview Pub, 898 West Broadway . Doors 9pm / Cover $10 @ the door

The Great Danes In Need benefit concert is taking place on Saturday, July 27th, 2013 at The Fairview Pub to raise money for the Great Dane rescue group New Hope For Danes, which provides care for abandoned, abused, neglected and stray Great Danes that need veterinarian attention in order to become healthy and adoptable.

Great Danes are a very special breed of dog that exhibits boundless love and loyalty at a level few humans have ever experienced. A 170-pound black Great Dane in Chicago saved a 14 year old girl from being raped when he and his owner cornered and detained the assailant until police arrived. Two Great Danes alerted a new mother by barking and jumping into the family pool, where she found her baby face down with the Danes valiantly trying to push him to safety. A Great Dane in Missouri was given an award of valor for his efforts in saving his owner from her boyfriend who was attacking her with a hammer. The Dane selflessly covered his owner's body, taking the brunt of the attack and enduring a broken hip and several fractured ribs while defending her.

This fundraiser seeks to contribute even a fraction of the love back to these dogs that they have shown to us humans. Thank you for your support. http://www.facebook.com/SupportForGreatDanesInNeed

Danny Echo reverberates with all that is melodic, all that is catchy and all that is rock and roll. They've taken their songwriting, recordings and live shows to the next level with smoke machines, video projections, smoking guitars and fire extinguishers enhancing the visual appeal of Danny Echo gigs. Their hook-filled tunes have been implanted in numerous media outlets including Cold Squad, MTV, MuchMusic, CBC and The Peak FM. http://www.dannyecho.com

The Walk-Ins - Featuring members of The Unknown Soldiers, Top Drawers & Captain Dust, The Walk-ins have conspired together to create a new musical concoction that seems strangely familiar yet somehow alien. Some say it's blues, some say it's rock or even urban folk... perhaps it's all three mixed together in a musical blender and seasoned with a dash of grit and grind and a hint of grunge. So sit back and let the Walk-Ins fill your body and soul with the eternal sounds of their musical madness. http://www.reverbnation.com/thewalkins

Train Wreck love to let it all hang out! Patrick Jacobson (The Capitals), Eric Lefebvre (The Top Drawers), Danny Echo (Danny Echo) and Blair MacDonald play original ands classic hits from today and yesterday! http://www.facebook.com/pages/Train-Wreck/272730969438257?ref=ts&fref=ts

Danny Echo (VanPop)

With life spinning out of control on tour in the UK as "The Ryecatchers", Danny and Mark decided it was time for a change... Returning to Vancouver, Danny bumped into an old flame, Shannon, and after a few drinks she decided she would rather be in a band than a relationship with him. Danny reluctantly agreed, phoned Mark, and formed Danny Echo i... more info
