Night at the Chelsea and seven other bands will Rock 4 Santa this week to benefit charity.
Each year, area rock bands donate their talents to play for a different non-profit.
All admission proceeds from this Rock 4 Santa event on Friday at the Vat will be donated to the Red Deer Food Bank, said Melody Wiklund, the singer with Night at the Chelsea.
Her Red Deer heavy rock group will play an acoustic set during Rock 4 Santa.
Music fans will also hear original tunes from the comedy acoustic group The Dirrty Show, southern hard rockers Diesel May and punk/pop band Oldbury from Red Deer.
As well, gritty blues rockers The Frank from Blackfalds will perform, along with melodic/progressive rockers Looking East from Edmonton and metal band Silo from Calgary.
Tickets to the 8 p.m. show are $10 in advance from The Vat, The Soundhosue or Living Nutrition, or $15 at the door.
