7 July 2015 South Bend, Indiana --- Everybody Has A Story™, the all-volunteer community organization that promotes music events to benefit Michiana charities, announces their second annual concert of music and variety this fall. The date has been set for Friday, October 23, 2015 at O’Laughlin Auditorium on the campus of St. Mary’s College.
A big part of the EHAS mission to present music and variety events is to discover the very best local talent to showcase. This year we hit the jackpot with two new acts that are sure to delight. Look for some powerful rock and R&B along with poignant standards from the American Songbook in the vocal stylings of Linsay Kelly & Friends. And you are sure to be impressed with the soulful elegance of Janet Hines-Norris, fresh from winning AARP’s 2015 50+SuperStars contest. Learn more about this year’s concert line-up here.
Co-hosting the concert will be renowned storyteller Dan Waterhouse, who will also regale with original tales, and singer-songwriter Curtis Lord, who will also perform classic songs in the troubadour tradition. Also appearing will be two local favorites, South Bend’s own song diva Judy Berg, partnering with The Fretmaster “Uncle John” Potthast to present their eclectic blend of Americana blues and acoustic jazz.
Making their first EHAS appearance will be the exciting new classic country-rock band the Moonshine Crooners, featuring Jetta Cruse, joined by Scott Caviness, Rick Rembold, and Jake Carpenter. EHAS is pleased to bring back from their engaging performance at last year’s concert the award-winning Celtic-folk traditionalists Kennedy’s Kitchen, featuring jOHn Kennedy, Chris O’Brien, Rob Weber, Jacob Turner, and Liam and Nolan Ladewski.
Tickets are now on sale on the St. Mary's College/O'Laughlin Website and available at the Box Office. Reserved tickets run $35 Reserved seating in advance, $30 Senior and $25 for students. “We are still seeking volunteers to help us stage and promote the event,” says Executive Director C.R. Heckaman, who also performs as Curtis Lord. “Most of all we hope to engage sponsors and donations in support of this year’s charities. We are of the community, for the community.” Interested parties are encouraged to follow Everybody Has A Story on Facebook, Twitter, Google+,
