Dance Party Benefit for Haiti featuring Roadside Blues Band

Sunday, March 7th
7pm ~ 10pm

Here at Pompanuck, we focus much of our efforts locally, but its times like the events that have taken place in Haiti, we consider a global outreach and support people in great need, particularly, its youngest victims, the children.

So, come dance and have a great time while supporting a great cause. Our dance party will featuring local band, the Roadside Blues Band who will donate their music for the evening. The Roadside Blues consists of Willie Eldorado Lanchantin (guitarist), Michael Kraus (vocals & harmonica), Peter Maine (drums & vocals) Mitch Throop (stand up bass).

The Roadside Blues Band captures the raw excitement of the early blues legends of the the 50's and 60's. The stand up bass and sealed back drum kit, the early Gibson, and the mouth harp blend to create a sound that is truly authentic.

Suggested minimum donation at the door $5/students, $10/adults.

In the past, we have held benefits before, such as a 2002 benefit for the Iraqi children, funds were donated to Doctors Without Borders and Teaching Tolerance. This time, we plan to again send financial support to Doctors Without Borders, as well as, UNICEF. All proceeds will go directly to support the victims of the earthquake in Haiti.

Refreshments will be available.
