DJ’ing dentist you say? I know it sounds bizarre, but stay with me.
Dr. Am Sajan and Wally Arcand are preparing for the grand opening this Thursday of ‘Tha BASSMENT’ an all-ages night club on Oliver Street.
Arcand, a life-skills coach with Sage Trainers, and Sajan, a dentist with Cariboo Dental, met when Sajan was DJ’ing on the side at The Overlander Pub.
Arcand, who previously owned a DJ’ing business in his home town of Edmonton, got to talking with Sajan about how brilliant it would be to share their passion for music in a sober environment.
This conversation started the ball rolling, or more accurately the disk spinning for ‘Tha BASSMENT.’
Both Arcand and Sajan are used to ‘giving back’ to their community.
Sajan has volunteered for the Boys and Girls Club, the SPCA and is presently a board member of Big Brothers & Big Sisters.
Arcand volunteers his time as the assistant coach for the Lac La Hache Tomahawks hockey team. Together they are now volunteering their Friday and Saturday nights to host and D-J at the club.
In the future the club will be expanding to karaoke nights, fight nights, and inviting you to come watch playoff games on the big screen.
The venue will also be available for Christmas or birthday parties and other special events.
The club is open to ‘all ages’ but policy states that anyone under 16 years old must be accompanied by an adult.
So come and check out the amazing sound system and shoot a game of pool this Thursday night at 9 p.m. for the grand opening of ‘Tha BASSMENT’ 240 Oliver Street.
