Peabody, MA (PRWEB) April 09, 2014
A popular North Shore venue is once again opening its doors to raise funds to purchase much-needed supplies for soldiers.
Capone's Restaurant and Lounge (147 Summit St) will host the third annual Blues for the Troops III: A Benefit for Operation Troop Support Sunday, April 13 from 3 to 8 p.m. EDT.
The event, which costs $10 at the door, will feature performances from five bands, raffle prizes (including a 50/50 raffle) and more. All the money raised will go toward the nonprofit organization Operation Troop Support, which provides troops with things they can't get anywhere else, both during deployment and upon their return home
Guests who come to the concert at Capone’s Restaurant and Lounge will be treated to performances by Melodix, Driving Blind, The Dan Lawson Band, Lee Hawkins' All Star Band and The Throwdown Blues Band. Special Guest performers include Johnny Fatello, Terri O'Soro, Mike Miano, Dave Papa, Chuck Launsby, Karl Bryan Jr., Dave Morrison and more.
In addition to the music, items contributed by local businesses and artists will be raffled, including an autographed Epiphone Hummingbird acoustic guitar autographed by all the performers at the event.
“Blues for the Troops at Capone’s has become a sure sign of spring in these parts, and those of us who play any part in making it happen look forward to it all year long,” said David Papa, coordinator of the fundraiser. “This event just gets bigger and better every year. We’re very excited to be able to organize a fun music event that raises money for such a worthy organization as Operation Troop Support.”
