LEGENDARY ROCK BAND
MONDAY, NOVEMBER 19 AT
MUSICIANS ON CALL’S
BENEFIT AT B.B. KING BLUES CLUB & GRILL
IN NEW YORK
Musicians On Call (MOC), a nonprofit organization that brings live and recorded music to the bedsides of patients in healthcare facilities, is excited to announce a special live performance by the legendary rock band Chicago at B.B. King Blues Club & Grill on November 19, 2012. When Chicago played the MOC Benefit Concert last year the response was so great that the band volunteered to do it again this year. The event, which will benefit MOC, includes hors d’oeuvres, open bar, and exclusive meet-and-greets for top sponsors.
In addition, the online auction (which kicked off October 17) on Charity Buzz (charitybuzz.com) will support MOC’s fundraising efforts by including a chance to bid on two front row seats to a Chicago concert, a chance to sing the hit song, “If You Leave Me Now” on stage with the band, and two backstage meet & greet passes.
The MOC event promises to be a very special and intimate experience for Chicago fans as the band will be performing its most beloved songs–the multi-platinum and award-winning band boasts 21 Top 10 singles, 5 consecutive Number One albums, and 11 Number One singles. The band will be in New York to promote their new two CD set, “The Ultimate Christmas Collection,” featuring 34 holiday favorites! Tickets can be purchased at www.musiciansoncall.org. Tickets start at $125 and VIP packages are available.
For MOC, Chicago is a perfect partner for the organization’s annual fundraiser. For more than a decade, MOC has worked with renowned artists in different musical genres for its annual fundraiser–John Mayer, James Taylor, and Lady Antebellum, to name a few.
As Dr. Leslie Faerstein, MOC’s Executive Director, pointed out, Chicago is, quite simply, a fan favorite and an ideal headliner for a fundraising event: “Chicago has created an extremely popular and enduring body of work. Their songs have become a part of a generation’s soundtrack, and are as recognizable today as when they were first released. Their current tour has drawn large crowds, and we are grateful to be able to benefit from their loyal fan base. They also put on an exciting and truly fun show!” Billboard Magazine lists Chicago as #13 of the Top 100 artists of all time.
