After much success, Gimme One Riddim is currently producing its third remount in less than one year at the Harbourfront Centre. For our next theatre appearance, a five-piece band is accompanying us! Producing a show of this nature is a great undertaking. We love what we’ve accomplished, but a larger show in a bigger venue requires more resources – we need your support.

We are seeking contributions to go towards producing our upcoming performances at the Harbourfront. All proceeds go towards paying cast and crew salaries, venue costs, set design, advertising, and publicity expenses. For your generosity we have some fun and rewarding perks.  Please donate to our Indiegogo Campaign.

School performances a hit with the students!

After performing at 2 high schools in the Greater Toronto Area, Gimme One Riddim has been a success with the students and faculty of the schools visited thus far.  Each assembly included a performance, a time for Q&A, and mini dance class to teach them some basic ‘ska’ moves!  Huge thank yous to William Lyon Mackenzie and East York Collegiate for having us as part of their black history month assemblies.  Check out the photo gallery on the Media page.  Don’t forget to purchase those tickets for the full length show at http://www.gimmeoneriddim.eventbrite.ca
