Inaugural events! Charity! Who isn't immediately interested right now, and why are you such a cold-hearted maladroit? Assuming everyone reading this is interested, you'll be happy to hear that WCYE is kickstarting a regular fundraising event that brings together nationally renowned touring bands and good causes. Dynamo combo, wouldn't you agree? As the first in the "Live at Wealthy Concert" series, Grand Rapidians can help benefit D.A. Blodgett/St. John's, a community outreach nonprofit that focuses on helping local children, while grooving to the tune-age of Wisconsin heartland rockers, The BoDeans. Although The BoDeans have been around since 1983 and are Midwestern to the core, this event also represents the group's first time performing in Grand Rapids. Solid, nostalgic roots-rock that helps community children connect with positive resources? We're sold. Come on out for an evening of good music, good times, and a very good cause.
