Rockin’ the cause: Local musicians to perform for Loudoun Free Clinic
That's where three local acts will be rocking the stage starting at 9:30 p.m. June 13 for a concert benefiting the Loudoun Free Clinic. The lineup includes familiar faces from the local circuit – the Nathaniel Davis Band from 9:30-10:30 p.m.; Joey and the Waitress Band from 10:45-11-45 p.m.; and Receiver from midnight until 1 a.m.
Tickets for the show (all acts included) are $10 with the majority of the proceeds pledged to the clinic, which provides health care to low-income and uninsured adults in the county. All three bands are foregoing compensation, shifting those funds instead to the clinic.
Payson Tremayne, one-half of the husband-wife duo Receiver, organized the event on the bands' side. Tremayne hatched the idea for a charity performance with Loudoun Free Clinic Board of Directors member Bob Miller, a Leesburg mortgage consultant.
Said Tremayne, “I used to volunteer at the clinic. Lately I've been wanting to get back to it, but I just haven't had any time between work and performing. This was a way I could give back to the clinic, which really does amazing work, and get some other great musicians involved. Everyone was excited for the cause.”
Dave Mascatello of Planetary Music, a promotions and bookings group based in Sterling, worked with Tremayne and Miller to shore up the logistics. Door prizes, raffles or similar promotional perks will also be offered up, said Mascatello.
The Loudoun Free Clinic, based in Leesburg and servicing income-eligible residents, is funded entirely through grants and donations. According to its website, the clinic is “committed to making sure that no one in our community goes without medical care.” The center serves approximately 1,500 patients a year, and for every $1 donated, $8 in care is given.
Tickets for the gig can be purchased at the door at Mahalo Cove, at 46300 McClellan Way in Sterling.
