Michelle Mangione, John Diggins and I are hosting a benefit concert for the immigrant children who have been separated from their parents at the border to help pay for legal fees and social services. The event name is MUSIC HUGS (Musicians United in Support of Immigrant Children Held under Unlawful Government Separation) and it will be held on Sunday, October 14th from 4-7pm at The Gaslamp in Long Beach CA.
So many of our super fabulous fellow local musicians will be performing, including Marty Axelrod, Harold Payne, Sage Hill Singers directed by Megan Eddy, Joey Sykes, Mark & Lacey Wood, RedRoots, Pawn Shop Kings, and so many others will be volunteering their time for the cause, as well. We couldn’t be more grateful to all of them. Brian Pothier, Steve Soest, Angela Riggio, Lori Cerasoli, Wendy Fuld...
The benefit will also feature opportunities to win a variety of great prizes, including autographed rock and roll paraphernalia, guitars, gift certificates and merchandise from local businesses.
100% of the proceeds will be donated to KIND (Kids In Need of Defense) and a representative from KIND will be speaking at the event.
This will be an afternoon of great music for a great cause. Hope you can join us!
Suggested donation at the door will be $20.00
