COCKTAILS FOR A CAUSE featuring ROOTS COLLECTIVE

Roots Collective

We held the first event in our new monthly series, Cocktails For A Cause, last Saturday night at Casa de Sol in Fitchburg and the night was a rousing success.  We raised over $500 for Cystic Fibrosis, and everyone had a great time dancing to the disco beats of VO5!

Our next event will be on May 22 at the Stadium Bar located at 1419 Monroe St. just down the way from Camp Randall Stadium, and we are pleased to announced the Roots Collective will be our featured artists for the evening.  The festivities will begin at 8pm.  Admission is only $10, and all patrons will receive $10 in gift certificates to local restaurants and bars.

Our beneficiary for this event will be the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.  25% of bar sales for the evening will go to this great cause!

Madison Week In Music + Ticket Giveaways (1.27-2.2): Hacienda, Say Hey For Haiti Benefit, A.A. Bondy, and Zion I

Zion I

This week, we’re excited to welcome a number of fantastic artists back to Madison.  Hacienda, A.A. Bondy, and Zion I have all played here in the fairly recent past, and will be returning to the delight of many local music lovers.

In addition to these shows, we are also proud to present an event later this week to benefit the victims of the Haiti disaster.  Say Hey For Haiti is a 6 hour fundraising concert event that will be held at the High Noon Saloon (and simulcast on WORT 89.9 FM) this Saturday, featuring performances by Mash’ Allah Reggae, Roots Collective, and many more.  All contributions–large or small–will make a difference.  100% of the money raised will go to Partners In Health.  We sincerely hope you’ll consider making a much-needed donation to this cause.

Read on to get the details on this week’s shows.
