A Report on the Evening

 

  

U Street Music Hall in Northwest DC was filled with music and meaning on Sunday night, August 1.  About 200 people were there for a benefit concert for the Foundation -- featuring the extraordinary Greta of the Hush Sound with her new band, Gold Motel, plus Tennis System and Matthew Hemerlein.  DJ Knoxbox played as doors opened.


Matthew Hemerlein mesmerized listeners with his looping virtuosity and lovely voice. Tennis System blasted their energy-rock into the music hall and had people dancing. Greta played beautiful songs from Gold Motel's just-released CD, Summer House.  And she played a lovely solo version of Echo, a song that Stone and Holt loved.


Thank you to all friends and supporters of our Foundation who helped raise about $4500.  The Foundation is now engaged with a long list of extremely worthwhile organizations and schools that Stone and Holt believed in -- you can find the list on the Foundation website.  Together in the spirits of Stone and Holt, we are finding ways to encourage people to do good and have fun at the same time.
