Mark Erelli (click for more info)
The Spring 2009 Hat Trick Concert Series continues TONIGHT with Mark Erelli! Erelli's first-rate songwriting and a flexible voice, which alternately contains shades of Dylan, Springsteen, Neil Young and Ryan Adams, create a sound that gives every indication that Erelli is in it for the long haul. Tonight's show benefits Kid’s First at St. John’s Home, providing emergency shelter care for Grand Rapids and Kent County children of all ages who are removed from their own homes because of abuse or neglect. The law firm of Rhoades McKee will match the first $500 in donations for this charity. That's Mark Erelli, at One Trick Pony TONIGHT at 7:30pm. The Hat Trick Concert series is sponsored by the law firm of Rhoades McKee, with audio support from Mark Swanson and lodging provided by Peaches Bed & Breakfast. For more information, please visit the concert page at wyce.org.
