Concerts for Causes in Memphis

PhotoGrid_2014-09-04_11_40_23

Who doesn’t love getting together with their friends, enjoying a few grown up drinks, and watching some great performances in the process? It is even better when it is for a great cause! There are some excellent opportunities coming up in Memphis this fall to enjoy some of your favorite activities, without feeling guilty, because you are giving back to the community.

Two events will be supporting the Church Health Center. Church Health Center provides affordable medical services to individuals without health insurance. Since so many starving artists fall into this category, it is no wonder that so many are willing to provide the entertainment to help raise much needed funds.

One of these events is Rock for Love 8. This year’s the music festival will be held from September 5-7 with a huge dose of live, local musicians pumping out tunes at multiple venues around the city. Don’t miss what are sure to be outstanding performances from James & the Ultrasounds at Hi Tone, Mighty Souls Brass Band at Overton Square, and Al Kapone at Hattiloo. Check out the full lineup here.

There will be another chance to not only support Church Health Center, but to honor the memory of local legend Russell George at Ernestine & Hazel’s on September 13 from 7-11pm. Donate $10, munch on a soul burger, and listen to the Ernestine & Hazel’s band. E&H has not been quite the same since Russell passed away, but it is still one of the best places in town to grab a snack, have a cold beer, and be in the company of friendly faces.

Another upcoming event for a great cause is The Levitt Shell’s 3rd Annual Stars at the Shell Benefit Concert. This years benefit on October 25 will feature R&B and soul singer, Aaron Neville. The Shell hosts some of the best free concerts around, and this benefit helps them keep it up! General Admission tickets are available here.

Journey: Coming to Memphis in September

Journey

They are the band that can stop any bar fight, and get the whole room singing along. They are the band that can get the crowd believing in their team again when a come-back seems impossible. In Memphis, many a growl towel has been raised with the words “We Believe,” to show support for our Grizzlies. We waited “Faithfully” with “Open Arms,” and Journey is coming to our town! See Journey at Mud Island Amphitheatre September, 13. Tickets are on sale now at Ticketmaster.

John Paul Keith at The White Horse – August 22, 2014

JPK-MC3AM

John Paul Keith

The White Horse

500 Comal St, Austin, TX

Friday, Aug. 22nd, 2014

12 a.m.

John Paul Keith makes a stop on his current tour at The White Horse in Austin this Friday night. The East-side honky-tonk has become a regular stop for Keith, bringing his Memphis-embodying brand of Americana roots rock that always gets everyone dancing.

The accomplished singer-songwriter-guitarist turns out song after distinctive song that evokes nostalgic familiarity with a deceptive sense that “Anyone Can Do It.”

Keith released Memphis Circa 3AM last year and is touring the states after returning from a European tour earlier this summer. Find more upcoming tour dates on his website, and be sure to catch him Friday, circa midnight, Memphis Music Time.
