Monster Fundraiser On Wednesday:

I'm back after a 3 week hiatus from the world of Blogs. You'll be seeing multiple postings over the next few days, as many things are happening around town over the next few weeks.

Let me start today by telling you about a fundraising effort that I am involved with, that will take place on Wednesday evening at Revolution Hall. My dear friend, singer, Tommy Love, was diagnosed with cancer this past summer. He's fought a fierce battle over the past few months, which culminated with the removal of one of his kidneys. Tom has been slowly but surely recovering, and will taking a giant step forward at the fundraiser, in his return to the stage.
I've had the pleasure over the past few months, in working with other veteran members of the local music scene to put together this effort to help Tom out with some of the astronomical out of pocket medical expenses he now has on his shoulders. Working with Jim Barrett, Joe Mele, Scott McPherson, Luke MacNamee, and Jared Kingsley , has been a fun experience, as I've known some of them for the better part of 3 decades.

The doors at Revolution Hall open at 7 p.m., with the first act going on stage at 7:30 p.m. The Mysteios open the night, with performances following by, The Savilles, Blue Machine, Super 400, and the outrageous, Blue Hand Luke. A super jam will follow after the last act, with some of the area's top musicians coming in for the jam. Admission is $10, with raffles being held all evening for gift certificates which were donated by local businesses.

So please join us for what is shaping up to be, the most explosive show of the year. Help us show the love, for Tommy Love.
