x A Dennis Rowland Benefit Concert
This high-energy evening of jazz and blues will benefit Grammy-nominated jazz vocalist and Herberger Hall of Fame actor Dennis Rowland. Vocalists will include Francine Reed, double-Grammy nominee Monica Mancini, Khani Cole and Diana Lee. They will be joined on stage by Grammy-award-winning jazz greats Shelly Berg (piano) and Gregg Field (producer/drums), plus famed jazz artists Marion Meadows (saxophone), Chuck Berghofer (bass), Jesse McGuire (trumpet), and others. Tommy Holloway and "Riz" Smith will join Mel Bridges and Cordell Conway of the Miracles for an a cappella Motown tribute.
In December 2012, Rowland suffered a near fatal stroke and cerebral hemorrhage, which severely impacted his ability to sing, to work and to express himself consistently. One of the Valley jazz scene’s most beloved figures, he previously performed at venues throughout the metropolitan Phoenix area, the United States and Europe. With ongoing therapy, Rowland continues to improve and aspires to return to the stage. He also envisions helping other stroke survivors through music therapy.
Net proceeds from the concert will help support his ongoing recovery and rehabilitation. For more information, visit dennisrowland.com.
