Caleb Hart & The Royal Youths On The Breakwater Barge #yyjmusic @gvicharbour @IAmCalebHart

Greater Victoria Harbour Authority and Deanna Young Promotions
presents The Breakwater Barge. Join us Friday August 4th from 5PM to 9:30PM for Caleb Hart & The Royal Youths. Caleb will be performing double duty as he opens the barge with a solo set then plays 2 full sets with The Royal Youths!

“When you can switch between singing reggae to soulful R&B to sounding just like Shaggy seemlessly, you’re going to blow some minds. Just watch his cover of Shaggy and Rayvon’s ‘Angel’. It’s no wonder his set with the Royal Youth’s at Sugar Nightclub won them a performance spot at Rifflandia. Hart also capped off his year winning a Western Canadian Music Award with his other band Tasman Jude.

Following the increase in fentanyl related drug overdoses in BC, organizers of Tall Tree Music Festival made the precautionary decision to increase harm reduction services and to increase staff on both the onsite medical team and harm reduction team for 2017. The Festival reports that zero fentanyl was detected in any of the free and confidential drug testing offered through Harm Reduction Services and no fentanyl related concerns were brought to the team’s attention over the course of the event. Most importantly, there were zero fentanyl overdoses reported by either the Harm Reduction Team, Medical Team or Volunteer Fire Dept, and only in one unrelated instance did a patron have to be transported offsite for further medical treatment. The individual was released shortly after admission and has made a full recovery. Continue reading “Tall Tree Music Festival Harm Reduction + Fentanyl Precautions A Success @Talltreemusic #yyj”
