Enjoy three bands for a good cause!

Looking for a great event to go to just after New Year's? On Sunday, January 5th, 2014 three great bands will be playing at The Thoroughbred Lounge on 4925 Rozzelles Ferry Road , Charlotte 28216 [masked]). Ben Gatlin Band, Fair Play featuring Carey Sims, and Coconut Groove Band with a great horn section - along with Craig Woolard sitting in with all three bands then finishing with an all-star band. These are truly some of the premier Carolinas musicians performing!

The fun starts early at 4:00pm with a West Coast Swing Intermediate/Advanced lesson. Then, the three bands perform on stage from 6:00pm to midnight, with a DJ spinning tunes on the breaks.

This is a fundraiser for the Tisch Cancer Center at Duke, with a minimum donation of $10 (but please feel free to give more!). As well, you can bring an item to donate for auction and/or you can sponsor a musician. With $2000 as overhead to produce this event, let's show up and help the cause. One of my friends did this January, 2013 as a thank you for Tisch Center keeping his brother with us long after any medical expectations. It was sort of last minute, so did not max out the 275 capacity of Thoroughbred Club. This year will be different, but only in that we will fill up the club. The music represents some of the area's best bands - made better for this special event with horn sections, etc.

If you love great music AND want to help out a truly great cause - this is a 'must' event for the New Year. Hope to see you there!

      Leslie, I may attend at around 6PM and I live in the Ballantyne area. I also do not drink so I am very safe to drive with. If you'd like to go feel free to call me at[masked] and I will pick you up. If you find a friend there you'd like to return home with... that would be fine as well.

    JR, I spoke to Tommy and he is supposed to stop by my house tomorrow and pick up a couple of items. After speaking to him and getting a background on the event, I am going to attend. BTW he told me that in addition to the talent he has organized to play even "our own" Michelle Smith will also sing a couple of tunes.

    I do not know if I will attend but as a cancer survivor I am definitely willing to donate a nice work of art (I owned a top fine art gallery for years) for a live or silent auction. Please call me at[masked] to schedule selection and pick up of a piece.
