Sanctuary has declared Saturday, May 14, “Everybody-who-missed-celebrating-their-birthday-due-to-that-darn-pandemic Day.”
For all the folks who didn’t get to celebrate their birthday in proper style over the past couple of years, versatile performer and music producer Mac Ritchey and friends are inviting you to the dance party of the century. Mac’s celebrating his belated 50th (a few days before his 51st) with live music, friends, a dance party, community — and, fingers crossed, a lovely spring evening.

Mike Payette (bass, vocals)
Marshall Goff (guitar, vocals)
Dave Boyd (keyboards, bodhrán, vocals)
Mac Ritchey (oud, bouzouki, didjeridu, vocals)
With a diverse set list targeted towards dancing and a party atmosphere, the evening will feature a five-piece band plus a number of guest artists. Within the evening, there will be mini-sets featuring Walk Like A Cow, the recent collaboration between Ritchey and Dave Boyd (who will be flying in from Portugal for this event) that turns classic rock tunes on their heads with oud (Arabi lute) and bodhrán (Irish frame drum). This is rock’n’roll like you’ve never seen it.

Birthday cake for all.
