Blue Gambit at the MGM

Cathy Davis and the Blue Gambit are currently appearing at the MGM Restaurant, 240 Nicol Street, Nanaimo, from 5 to 8 pm on Fridays. This is the place to go if you want to hear what professional street entertainment can sound like with decent amplification. Blue Gambit plays a varied repertoire catering to seniors and families, and they do take requests.

Cathy’s goal for this summer is to have street entertainers become a major attraction for tourists and Nanaimo residents alike. Cathy wants less confrontation and more positive interaction between street entertainers and business. She’d like to have buskers sponsored by Nanaimo businesses on the waterfront and downtown. Each business could pick their own charity so that street entertainers could receive an honorarium and donate their busking proceeds to charity. Over the last three years, Blue Gambit along with The Grey Notes have raised a lot of money through corporate sponsors like Nanaimo Real Estate Webmasters.
