"Rock for the Red Cross" at Buskirk-Chumley Theater on May 4


The 2013 Rock For The Red Cross Benefit concert will be held on May 4th at 7 pm at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater in Bloomington, IN. This year’s Headliner is Billboard Magazine and ReverbNation #1 Blues Artist Anthony Gomes. Anthony Gomes is a Canadian blues and blues rock guitarist and singer. After his 1998 debut album release Blues in Technicolor, he began touring the United States and Canada and he has since recorded eight more albums. Gomes resides in St. Louis, Missouri, United States, playing a fusion of blues with rock and soul, and with the Anthony Gomes Band has toured North America and Europe.

Opening the show with a very special Solo Acoustic performance is Singer/Songwriter/Guitarist and Indiana Native Larry Crane. Larry Crane is an American rock musician and songwriter from Seymour, Indiana. From 1976 until 1991, he appeared alongside John Mellencamp as a guitarist, co-songwriter, and contributor to the arrangements and production of the Mellencamp sound (often labeled as "heartland rock.”)

Tickets are now on sale at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater Box Office.

All proceeds go to the Monroe County Chapter of the American Red Cross.
