The Bridge to headline the Concert for Hope February 22

bridge8Iconic Balitmore roots-rockers The Bridge will reunite for a special show as they headline the eight annual Concert for Hope February 22 at Baltimore Soundstage.  The Hippy Sheiks will open the evening and Smooth Kentucky will play a special VIP reception before.

 

This annual feature on the local music calendar is a true Baltimore story about giving back. Two local guys — John Miller and Jim Wolff — both had first-hand experiences with the devastating impact of a cancer diagnosis and recognized that knowledgeable support is essential for people facing this disease. John and Jim have partnered with HopeWell Cancer Support, a local nonprofit that provides free support programs and services to individuals and families in Maryland who are coping with cancer, to produce the eighth annual Concert for Hope.

 

An hour-long VIP reception will start at 7 pm, featuring Baltimore-based bluegrass band Smooth Kentucky on stage. Doors for the main show open at 8 pm with the return of Concert for Hope favorites, The Hippy Sheiks. They will be followed by a rare performance by legendary local jam band The Bridge to close the show.

 

A live auction is also part of the event, featuring six themed packages, including:

•             Musician Dream Come True (a Paul Reed Smith electric guitar and private guitar lessons)

•             Music Lovers (tickets to Paul Simon & Sting concert on 3/13/14 at the Verizon Center)

•             Utah Wonderland (5-day/4-night accommodation plus 2 airline tickets)  

 

All proceeds from tickets sold go directly to benefit HopeWell Cancer Support’s programs for individuals and families coping with all kinds of cancer.
