For my friend Eric:
LOCAL MUSICIANS COME TOGETHER FOR END-OF-THE-YEAR BENEFIT SHOW
2016 has been a rotten year for musicians. The world has lost Prince, David Bowie, Leon Russell, Leonard Cohen, Lemmy, Merle Haggard, Maurice White, Glenn Frey, Greg Lake and local musician Michael Colle. Some local musicians have decided send 2016 off into history properly; with a benefit show for the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund. http://www.sweetrelief.org/
Sweet Relief Musicians Fund is a charity organization that provides financial assistance to all types of career musicians who are struggling to make ends meet while facing illness, disability, or age-related problems. In other words, helping musicians, who have dedicated their life to entertaining, us in their time of need.
THE GOOD RIDDANCE TO 2016 BENEFIT CONCERT will take place at Kiss the Sky Records in Batavia (180 First St.) from 1 PM to 5PM on Saturday, December 31. Tickets will be $10 at the door, with all proceeds going to Sweet Relief Musicans Fund. There will also be some raffle prizes to raise money as well.
The event, organized by local musician Eric Peter Schwartz and Kiss the Sky owner Steve Warrenfeltz, will bring together many of the area’s most popular musicians for an afternoon of acoustic music. Donating their time and talent will be Greg Boerner, Noah Gabriel, Chad Watson, Jim Green, Jake Mack, Whatismu, Abud: A Bard, Eric Dinse and Schwartz (and some of his old Gag Reflex Comedy Theater cohorts).
Refreshments for attendees will be donated by Raimondo’s Pizza in North Aurora, La Victoria Roy’s Ribs in Aurora and other local eateries donating food.
