You may find your toes tapping – or maybe even your head banging – at a benefit event this weekend.
(Tim Olson, KX News) Whether you prefer the hair… The oddities… Or the psychadelic… you’re in for a treat this weekend in Minot.
(Dr. Erik Anderson, Community Rocks!) “It’s gonna be, I think, an incredibly fun event. It’s a lot more like a rock concert than a symphony concert.”
(Olson) That’s Erik Anderson – and he’s talking about the third annual Community Rocks benefit concert. It features live and silent auctions, food, and of course… Over thirty local orchestral musicians bringing hours worth of rock and roll to life.
(Anderson) “What you find is, every musician up there with a violin, cello, viola, or bass is thrilled to have a chance to play this style of music, because it speaks to all of us.”
(Olson) And thanks to Community Rocks, the Roosevelt Park Children’s Zoo will get a tune-up: the proceeds will help build a new goat exhibit.
(Anderson) “For anyone, the key to happiness is feeling like what you do matters. And this is a concert that matters. This is a concert that does tangible good.”
(Olson) There’s no other way to put it: that rocks.
Doors open at 6, and the concert begins at 7 o’clock this Saturday at the Grand Hotel in Minot.
And tickets are going quick.
You can find yours at Budget Music, Classic Rock Coffee, and Jacobsen Music in Minot.
Tickets are $45 and $60 each.
