On December 17, Big Soul Project and Deep Groove band along with musical guests Zeek Gross, Carl Fraser, Mike Vandenbosch and Bryan Parker, played a sold-out concert at Dominion-Chalmers United Church. The theme of BSP's 2016 Christmas concert was Joy to the World and it was all about spreading joy and renewing hope in the world. Mission accomplished. The audience left with a spring in their step and joy in their hearts. And that night BSP also spread joy beyond the walls of the church by raising more than $7150 for the Ottawa Food Bank.
