'Benefit for Joe Maniscalco - Let's Keep the Music Playing'
Posted to: Local Events Music
Friends of Joe’ will hold a fundraising event entitled, 'Benefit for Joe Maniscalco - Let's Keep the Music Playing' on January 31, 2010. It will take place at Knuckleheads Roadhouse on 401 North Witchduck Road in Virginia Beach from 1:00 p.m. to 9 p.m.
A talented musician onstage, Maniscalco has been sidelined during the past four months by health issues caused, in part, by second hand smoke enhaled during his 30+ years performing in public venues. (Maniscalco never smoked himself.). The outcome this year for Maniscalco has been a week in ICU (pneumonia) and a torn retina (four times). The torn retina, most likely, was caused by the high fever and/or high dose of steroids administered to fight the pneumonia. Out of work since late September, he is now dealing with mounting medical bills. Actually, the health situation began about one and ahalf years ago and last winter he was sidelined for about four months with the same problem.
The fundraiser promises a memorable afternoon of music, dancing and games to help pay for some of the expenses associated with Maniscalco's illness. The event will celebrate the friends, the bands, the music and his successful journey in the entertainment business for 30 years. There will be a silent auction as well as other events.
The ‘Benefit for Joe Maniscalco - Let's Keep the Music Playing' will showcase key Hampton Roads entertainers. Over twenty-five bands and musicians are scheduled to perform. The final band/entertainer list will be pulished shortly. For more up-to-date information, there is a "Friends of Joe Maniscalco" fan page as well as “Lets Keep the Music Playing page on Facebook.
Sponsors for the event include: AcoustEvents, EventRealizations, Inc., Jack J. Maniscalco & Son Insurance and www.vbnightlife.com.
