A Local Band Lights Up Father Joe’s Villages Clients’ Thursday Night

It was a music-filled evening at St. Vincent de Paul Village on July 20. Staff, clients and volunteers all raved about the performance of the eight-piece band that lit up our client housing celebration event. One special client even pulled up a chair right up front so he could take it all in.

The Sure Fire Soul Ensemble came to us through a coincidental encounter. In a great “neighbors helping neighbors” moment, one of our Village Program Managers heard the band at a local record store and invited them to play for our event. The ensemble graciously accepted as they had previously thought about volunteering with Father Joe’s Villages.

 

One band member, Tim, said, “This is an exciting show for us. We’re so grateful for the opportunity to give back to San Diego.”

 

The Sure Fire Soul Ensemble played for the first time with their new horn player and has a few shows coming up. Thank you Sure Fire Soul Ensemble, we were grateful to have you!
