RI Blogger was so pleased to experience the benefit for Bruce McCrae aka Rudy Cheeks at the Met this past Sunday. The turnout speaks volumes to not only the talent of our home grown artists but also to the love the community shares and supports its talent! Bruce/Rudy has contributed years of entertainment within the New England market as a Musician / Band innovator (Fabulous Motels, Young Adults), FM DJ, Columnist, and Talk Show Host (Way too much to go into detail within this blog…… Google him!)
This past Sunday musicians and fans came out to support Rudy with a benefit concert as he has been dealing with health issues. The crowd was a sell out and the performances were spot on. It is amazing the wealth of talent the biggest little State in the Union births.
Rudy’s benefit included blasts from the past and acts in the now such as The Wild Turkey Band, The Young Adults, Mark Cutler & the Men of Great Courage, Club Genius and the remarkable keys of Mark and Sam Taber! A handful of special guests were in the mix that included Dan Moretti and Cathy Clasper-Torch and many others.
Rudy was overwhelmed by the support and beyond gracious and thankful when he addressed the audience. Bruce/Rudy is a class act and we look forward to having him on the stage albeit it in writing, playing or just doing whatever it takes to make us smile.
If you were not able to get to The Met for the benefit you can still donate. Make check payable to Bruce McRae
