They call it the Spring Swing Food Drive Fling, which is not something I’d want to say three times fast.
Whatever you call it, this sounds like a groovy show and it’s also for a good cause.
Hard to beat that.
Big Bad Voodoo Daddy is performing a full Cab Calloway set tonight, Wednesday, April 13, at Firestone Live. The show is also a Food Drive for Second Harvest Food Bank.
A portion of the proceeds from every ticket sold will go directly to the Second Harvest Food Bank. Alongside purchasing a ticket concert goers are being asked to bring nonperishable food items to the show. Containers to accept donations will be posted at the entrance of the theatre. Anyone bringing 5 or more items will receive an autographed poster from the band.
General admission tickets are $19, but you can shave that down to $15 if you bring along a canned food donation to the box office tonight. The headliner will be preceded by another act that specializes in making a show: Beebs and Her Money Makers.
Doors open at 7 p.m., with the music at 8. I’m told that the Food Truck pod gathering will be underway again in the club’s backlot.
Tickets for the show can be purchased by visiting www.firestonelive.net. (The Club at Firestone is located at 578 North Orange Avenue, Orlando.)
