All proceeds benefit victims of Hurricane Harvey

DANVERS – Breakaway on Newbury Street in Danvers has announced an amazing musical event on Sunday, September 24, to aid victims of Hurricane Harvey in Houston, Texas. The night will feature 10 bands – top regional musical giants Fortune with Barry Goudreau, formerly of the band Boston, Aerochix, Brian Maes, 43 Church Street, the Slush Puppies, and the Lee Hawkins Band, to name a few. Also featured is legendary guitarist and songwriter Charlie Farren.

Breakaway owner Joe Crowley will be donating his music hall along with an incredible buffet for an incredible night of music to raise money for the victims of the catastrophic flooding that has hit Texas. “My heart goes out to those people who need so much help, so I think a night of musical camaraderie among our great musical talent can help those who’ve lost so much,” said Crowley.

On that same day (Sept. 24), the New England Patriots are scheduled to play the Houston Texans, so Crowley figures a night of old-fashioned rock ’n’ roll in the spirit of Live Aid is just the remedy to aid our neighbors in the Southwest.

All proceeds will go to the Topsfield/Middleton/Boxford Rotary Club, which will send the money to the Houston Rotary Club to distribute the funds to those directly in need. Tickets will cost $20 per person and will include a free buffet from 3:00 to 7:00 p.m.; the outdoor Patio will also be open, weather permitting. The music will begin at 1:00 p.m. and end at 9:00 p.m.

Along with the above-named bands, also included in the lineup will be the Jimmy Hawkins Band and, Mary Beth Maes Band, as well as the opening acts, CIA and Back to the 80’s. Crowley is also expecting some surprise guests from some famous rockers. The North Shore area is known for its tight-knit musical community and spirit of giving back, and Crowley said all the bands, including at least 20 more, have offered to play for gratis.

“Since I started booking local talent at Breakaway, the bands have been incredible, and I truly appreciate how hard they work at their music and their incredible fan base,” he said. “It’s moving to see the kind of people that are willing to step-up with me to help people on the other side of the country. God bless America.”
