Roy White Foundation Benefit Concert presents Dana Fuchs Band (10/7)
Presented by Murray Bauer
Special Guest: Curtis and Reinhard
Dana Fuchs is a phenomenon, a singer whose mesmerizing voice and presence has led critics to compare her to Rock Legends from Janis to Jagger. Fittingly, she appeared in the off-Broadway production, Love, Janis. The multi-talented singer-songwriter stars as, Sadie, in the cult classic, Sony Pictures Beatles musical, Across The Universe, where she has a major presence both in the film, and on the platinum selling soundtrack. Perhaps Stereophile Magazine said it best, “Imagine a sultry, more emotive Janis Joplin, backed by a higher energy version of the late 60’s Rolling Stones…Rock n’ Roll doesn’t get any better.”
The Roy White Foundation:
We provide financial assistance to young adults and children whose desire to further their education is inhibited by financial complications. It is our mission to help these individuals pursue their dreams and aspirations by easing the frustrating burden of monetary obligations. Respect and decency are key attributes of Roy White, who played for 15 straight seasons with the New York Yankees and achieved many milestones during his outstanding professional career. His success as a professional ballplayer serves as a testament to the power of dedication. Growing up poor in one of the tougher communities of Los Angeles, his aspiration to one-day play professional baseball was achieved through a rapacious desire to obtain knowledge and education, in order to present his best to the world.
What We Do
Through programs like Books for Baseball and The Roy White Scholarship Award, The Roy White Foundation aims to teach young adults and children the benefits of self-sufficiency. Through its efforts, the Foundation hopes to demonstrate that the best way to achieve distant goals is by maintaining good values and never giving up hope. The Foundation will also help educate student athletes on the importance of continuing and completing their education, so that they are well prepared to enter the business world or any career path they choose to pursue.
Curtis & Reinhard:
Curtis & Reinhard is the coming together of Jersey’s own sibling duo Blaire & Gray Reinhard of The Blaire Reinhard Band and Southern-raised singer-songwriter Clinton Curtis. The combination of these 3 distinct songwriters, and their even more distinct voices, fuses the great American genres of Blues, Country, Gospel, Soul & Folk into a sound that is pure and honest Rock ‘n’ Roll. C&R has released two full length albums: the first, “At The Pigeon Club,” gained national recognition thanks to a featured song placement on FOX’s “So You Think You Can Dance,” landing their song “No Nothing” a spot on the iTunes Top 100 Pop Chart.
