This is the third year for Techapalooza, the CancerCare MB fundraiser that brings IT people together for Battle of the Bands. We raised $60,000 for CancerCare Manitoba Foundation.
Music and computers seems to go well together. I’m proud of this band because the horn section is all Geeks in IT, Randy the bass player hadn’t played in years and works for MTS, Hal did a great job on drums. We had two ringers Rena Semenko and Katherine Penfold, both on vocals. We tried something different this year, I figured we needed to get the dance floor full and the party jumping. It worked out great, we won Fan Favourite. In fact it went so well we reprised this set at our Memorial Concert for Dean Clarke on June 10.
Here is the set from Techapalooza in its entirety. Kat swears to never wear that outfit again, apparently it is a bit itchy.
