Talented local musicians pay tribute to John Lennon with Christmas party this December

Posted By on Thu, Dec 11, 2014 at 9:42 AM

Heart Strings Music wants your old iPods, and they're invoking the name of John Lennon to collect as many digital media players as possible. From 6 p.m. to 1 a.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 23, head to Cheyenne Saloon to see talented local musicians - the Gerry Williams Band, Eugene Snowden, FunkUs, the Honeyslides, Max Von Shadow, Rizzo Wheeler and the Stupid Bloody Tuesdays, My Generation, Mark Wynegar, BEATLEish, JunoSmile, Walt Stahl - perform selections from Lennon's expansive songbook. Cover is $15 and your first drink is free.

The show is a Christmas party with heart, donating the iPods to Music & Memory, a non-profit that supports "those struggling with Alzheimer’s, dementia and other cognitive and physical challenges to reconnect with the world through music-triggered memories, thus vastly improving quality of life" (their mission statement). Watch the trailer of Alive Inside to learn more about the work of Music & Memory, and as Lennon would say, Happy Xmas to all the partygoers.
