Chez Roue' signed for Feb. 15 Bijou fundraiser

The Bijou Film Center is delighted to announce that Chez Roue' will play live at the New York Deli (9 p.m. - 11 p.m.) following the screening of Academy Award nominee “Finding Vivian Maier” (2014) at the Byrd Theatre on Sun., Feb. 15.

"Finding Vivian Maier" is being presented in conjunction with our partners for this occasion: The Byrd Theatre Foundation, Candela Books + Gallery and the VCUarts Department of Photography and Film. Showtime for the movie is 7 p.m. Admission at the box office will be $7.00. Advance tickets for $5.00 will be available soon at selected locations. Advance tickets are already available online at Eventbrite for $5.00 (plus $1.27 handling fee).

Please note, there will be no cover charge for the live music at the Deli. In the photo above, left-to-right, Chez Roue' are: Debo Dabney on piano, Roger Carroll on saxophone, Johnny Hott on drums. Brian Sulser (seen only in the mirror) is on bass. For Chez Roue' fans it's important to bear in mind that this gig will be Roger Carroll's next-to-last performance in Richmond, before he moves to Chicago.

We’re still polishing some details, including lining up prizes for the raffles, but the schedule is now set for the Bijou Film Center’s second Bijou at the Byrd fundraising event. As before, film-wise, there will also be a wee surprise.

This is going to be a lot of fun. Stay tuned for more information soon.
