The Financial and National Post posted a blurb about the event, stating that Mike Holmes would make a great choice for a judge at the rock and roll themed event because if one of the battle of the bands performers punches a hole in the dressing room wall, at least someone will be around to fix it.
From the Financial Post:
Organizers have announced a surprise celebrity judge for AIDSbeat 2013, the annual battle of Toronto law firm rock bands that raises money for AIDS and HIV research.
Mike Holmes, home renovator and TV star, will help decide whether the law firm bands are built on a firm foundation of rock.
Holmes may be the perfect choice for the gig. As Canada’s most trusted building contractor, he never does a job without proper ear protection. And if some band member decides to unleash his or her inner Keith Moon and punch a hole in the dressing room wall, at least there’ll be someone around to fix it.
The National Post is media sponsor for the event, and I’ll be back for my third stint as a judge at the annual event.
