Saturday, September 28, 2013

The first Alternative Music Festival in Cleveland will be held on Saturday, Oct. 12 from 12-9 p.m. at The Warehouse Venue.  Proceeds from the event will benefit T.C. Thompson Children’s Hospital at Erlanger. 

 

“The Alternative Music Festival is a collaboration of local musicians who had a desire to do something that could bring people together for a good cause, as well as give back to our community,” explained festival coordinator, Sabrina Eubanks.

  “We could not think of a better way to give back then to raise money for Children’s Hospital.”

 

Many of the participants, and even spectators who have children or know other family members with children, understand the importance of having a children’s hospital just down the road from Cleveland

 

“We know how many local children and families benefit every day from the hospital, and wanted to do our part to ensure the hospital can continue to thrive for generations to come,” added Ms. Eubanks. 

 

There will be food and a wide range of music for the whole family to enjoy.  Among the bands booked are: Beyond Bethel, Fighting For Tomorrow, And So It Goes, T-Ran Gilbert, The Shine Effect, Razz Roe and I Am Sent.  Admission is $3 per person, and organizers will be collecting donations during the festival to benefit Children’s Hospital. 

 

The Warehouse Venue is located at 260 2nd St NECleveland.  For more information about the event, please call Sabrina Eubanks at 650-6546.
