Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family! I hope you have a wonderful holiday. On this Thanksgiving, I am so grateful to you for your continued support of my musical endeavors.
I have a couple of performances coming up that I would like to invite you to:
On Friday, December 9th, I will appear at Wicked Wolf in White Plains, NY with the Showtime Dance Band. The Showtime Dance Band combines the sounds of Motown, R&B, Funk, Dance, Rock, and Jazz. Featured vocalists for the evening include Benita Charles and Bill Hudson. Join us for a night of great music and fun! For more info, visit: http://showtimedanceband.com.
On Sunday, December 18th, I am very excited to present my 3rd annual holiday/toy drive concert at Bar Thalia at Symphony Space benefiting the Toys For Tots organization. This is one of my favorite shows because I know that we can make a difference in a child’s life! Please bring your unwrapped toys to the show. Together we can make this the best toy drive ever! A representative from the Toys for Tots organization will be present to collect the toys. At the show, The Benita Charles and Friends Band will present holiday favorites, R&B, original material and other favorites at the Concert. Special guest vocalist, Christi Gehrisch will also be featured during the concert.
