ABOUT the ASYLUM for ART
For 25 years we have been bringing the highest quality education and performances. We now, in our new location at 2505 14 St SW, have the opportunity to step up our game. We opened our doors January 2020 and have assembled a great cast of teachers and performers to provide the best music in the city!
We have temporarily closed our doors to allow the coronavirus to ease off. I have optimistically set up a few classes for the summer starting mid June. In the meantime, I have been busy. The bar is built and we are ready to get going again with shows as soon as we are able. It is going to be a great performance space!
As with many businesses, being shut down is a terrible hardship. This was certainly not how I imagined months 3 - who knows when would be. The support from The Asylum community has been stellar. Lots of people have stepped up with help and kind words. I can't tell you how much I appreciate it. I have secured additional financing, so we will be ok, but if you would like to prepay for classes or just give a donation here is the link. Coronavirus fund
In addition to working on the studio, I have also put quite a lot of focus on my side project. Last fall, I decided to step up the Hot Sauce production and have been working on 4000 bottles of some of the best sauce to burn your f'n lips off. They are all ready to go! MURDERofBANJOS.com. There are also other great stuff there: Gluten Free Pierogi, Sauerkraut, Fermented vegetables, Salted Limes, and more...
So, support The Asylum for Art, burn your f'n lips off. WIN - WIN!!
While we are unable to open, I'll be doing free deliveries within 50 km of Calgary. My doggies are always happy to get out of town.
I'll see all you beautiful people soon. I miss every one of you
