Benefit Concert Delivers Comfort & Warmth For Those in Need

On Sunday, November 19th, the RI based original band, Charlie Greene & The Blessed Sons produced their 2nd Annual “Thanks For Giving Benefit Show” for Amos House, a non-profit RI organization helping the Rhode Island homeless and those who live in poverty.
The early evening show drew a packed house at The Parlour in Providence, RI. The enthusiastic and generous audience kindly donated an abundance of warm winter clothing essentials that Amos House distributed during the week along with holiday meals.

As Charlie Greene notes “We love to write and perform our music and it is always extra special when we can bundle the show into a great cause for a great organization like Amos House. What’s nice is that the donations of winter weather clothing go directly to those in need immediately. Instant gratification. What a wonderful way to pay it forward for those who could use some help as the cold weather approaches”.

Drummer Gary Santos points out “Last year was our first attempt at this type of benefit and the turnout was outstanding and the donations exceeded our expectations. It only made sense to make it an annual event and Thanksgiving makes for the perfect time for many reasons”.

The event was Charlie Greene & The Blessed Sons’ first show with the band’s new lineup featuring Patrick Dow on keyboards and Michael Magne on bass guitar which came on the cusp of their forthcoming EP to be released in mid-December.

Opening the show was RI based original artist Beth Killian. NBC WJAR 10 News were on hand to cover the show and interview those involved. The segment was aired later that evening and in the morning, noting that people could continue to donate to the cause.
