THE CHEESEBURGERS ARE playing at the Leaps of Love benefit Saturday at Turner Hall in Quincy. It is an honor and privilege to perform on the historic stage.
We don't do many benefits. In fact, I can only remember two others in the four years I've been in the band. I've written many times about benefits and how they are organized. Let's just say it was a no-brainer for us to get involved with this one.
For one thing, this raises money for families dealing with cancer. Everybody, I repeat, everybody, has had cancer impact their lives. So the cause is above question.
Secondly, Mike Gilbert of the band Further Ado puts it on and spends mega hours organizing the event. He's a good guy and when he asked if we would play, it was an easy answer.
Thirdly, it's easy. We show up, we plug our stuff in and we play for an hour. No set up or tear down, aside from our instruments.
We are glad to help. We play at 5 p.m., and later Saturday night Predawn Hour reforms for one last show.
Special thanks to Rollo Carder and his sound guys, and to Mark and Chris from Turner Hall. They will be back in action March 8, when we have our Six String Heroes party.
Great Cheesey fun
