Jam out with five, local bands for a cause on Saturday, November 19th at 'Gimme Shelter,' a benefit concert for Crisis Ministries.
The event will feature a variety of musical genres beginning at 8 p.m. at The Windjammer on Isle of Palms.
The Gimme Shelter show is 18+, and guests under 18 will be admitted with an adult. There is a minimum donation of $10 to enter, with all proceeds from the door going to Crisis Ministries’ new shelter fund. Tickets can be purchased at the door, which opens at 7 p.m.
The new, 28,000-square-foot facility is being built adjacent to the existing shelter complex, with completion expected in 18 to 24 months. It will allow Crisis Ministries to expand services and increase the number of guests served, with 70 emergency shelter beds, 40 transitional Veterans’ beds, a health clinic, dedicated counseling/group meeting space and a new community soup kitchen.
Take a gander below at the Gimme Shelter line-up:
- Mac Leaphart - Leaphart is a singer/songwriter who plays a mix of country and rhythm and blues. He has shared the stage with Robert Randolph, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Ryan Bingham and others. Skope Magazine remarked about Leaphart, “This guy may just single-handedly save country music.”
- Dem Taylor Boys - This acoustic duo features Jason Cooper (Weird Science, The Have Nots) and Dana Mitchell (The Have Nots) playing a blend of Americana, classic country and rock faves.
- A Fragile Tomorrow - This melodic, jangly pop-rock group began as a trio of three brothers—Sean, Brendan and Dominic Kelly—and evolved to a quartet a few years later. The band gained popularity after touring with The Indigo Girls and has since shared the stage with Blues Traveler, Danielle Howle and others.
- Future Trunks - Four Charleston School of the Arts juniors make up the Future Trunks. The band performs original songs influenced by Modest Mouse, Pink Floyd, Radiohead and Fleetwood Mac.
- Danielle Howle - A native of South Carolina, Howle is a singer/songwriter who performs a unique Americana blend of folk-rock and country. She has shared the stage with The Indigo Girls, Ani DiFranco, Sam Bush and Bob Dylan.
