Black Sheep Members
Reunite For Benefit Concert!
It's a dream come true ...
As reported on www.philnaro.com:
All Stars For Bright Eyes
"Please come and join Rochester's own, Lou Gramm of Foreignerand some of Rochester's best local bands as they pay tribute to the man and 25 years of his music, while raising money for a cause very close to his heart.
The Bright Eyes Fund helps bring hope to children afflicted with brain tumors and all proceeds of this event will directly support the brain tumor clinic at Strong Memorial Hospital."
According to Phil's site, and information gleaned from other sources in the know (thanks everyone!), the show is set for Friday, April 19, 8 p.m. at the Water Street Music Hall in Rochester, NY.

This is the first time in 25-plus years that members of Black Sheep have reunited to perform their tunes. Scheduled to appear in addition to Gramm are Bruce Turgon, Don Mancuso, Larry Crozier and Mike Bonafede.
In addition, the line-up includes local bands Boys Lie, Catch 22, Phil Naro and Stranger.
I wish I could attend this once in a lifetime performance, but unfortunately, it's out of the question due to career obligations. (Yes, I would fly across country, not only to see Lou and Bruce, but I would also do so to see Don Mancuso play as well!) I am hoping for full reports from the die-hard Foreigner and Black Sheep fans who I know are planning to attend. LOL, and maybe with a little luck, one of them will remember to get me a momento of this special occasion - a program, a t-shirt (if any are to be had), anything!
All that aside, however, if you plan to attend, I only ask this: Think of me for just a second if they play "Encouraging Words" and remember to enjoy every precious moment. Music like this may never pass our way again!
