Happy Thanksgiving to you and your families! I hope you have a safe and wonderful holiday.
On this Thanksgiving, I am so grateful to you for your continued support of my musical endeavors. Music is truly a universal language that touches the heart. I will continue to spread the love through my music for you.
I have musical performances coming up that I would like to invite you to:
I'm very happy to announce I will be presenting my 4th annual holiday concert for Toys For Tots on Sunday, December 16th at 8:00 pm at Bar Thalia - Symphony Space. Please join Benita Charles & Friends Holiday Show/Toy Drive for a joyous, festive occasion of music, great food and & fun! There's no cover but we're asking everyone to bring an unwrapped toy for a boy or a girl to the show. The Marines have confirmed that they will be at the show to pick up the toys!
Other December performances include the following:
On Thursday, December 6, 2012, the Pocket Change Band will perform at the Bayou in Mount Vernon. Enjoy your favorite Motown, Blues & classic R&B and today's pop songs over a scrumptious dinner. Featured vocalists include Benita Charles, Ed Holley, Christi Gehrisch and Harris Punyon. Hope to see you there!
On Friday, December 7, 2012, Preachermann and the Revival continue a soulful residency at the legendary Shrine Restaurant and Bar in Harlem. Join us for one of the hottest shows in NYC and let the music set your soul free. There's no cover, just great music. Hope to see you there!
