PRESS RELEASE 5/17/2007
The John Entwistle Foundation has created a fundraising concert featuring Brian Johnson, Cliff Williams, Mark Farner, and Joe Lynn Turner. The show uses a single backing band comprised of world class musicians led by drummer Steve Luongo of The John Entwistle Band. Doing this allows some of rocks premier voices to walk on stage and sing only their biggest HITS.
Joe Lynn Turner sings the best of Deep Purple and Rainbow. Then Mark Farner takes the stage to sing and play guitar as he launches into his biggest Grand Funk Railroad hits. The final set features Brian Johnson, Cliff Williams, Steve Luongo and Mark Hitt who perform mega chart busting AC/DC hits along with their own new material.After almost two solid hours of non stop classic rock all of the musicians join together for the encore Highway To Hell.
Classic Rock Cares will only perform 15 shows during the month of July. These concerts raise money for the John Entwistle Foundations mission of free music education and instruments for underprivileged children through the public library system.
The John Entwistle Foundation was named for the late bassist of The Who.
In addition to the primary mission of free and easy access to music education the foundation has also raised significant funds for disaster relief including donations to The Red Cross and The Florida Hurricane Relief Fund. The John Entwistle Foundation is a United States Government approved 501(c)(3) non profit foundation.
