Hey, Hey It's Peter Tork from 'The Monkees' at Kelsey
On Sept. 13, the former star of "The Monkees" will perform with his band Shoe Suede Blues to benefit children's cancer research.
Editor's Note: The following is a news release issued by Mercer County Community College's Kelsey Theatre.
On Thursday, Sept.13, Shoe Suede Blues will be performing their blues sound at Kelsey Theatre.
A portion of the proceeds will go to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia on behalf of Adam’s Team to benefit research for children’s cancer.
Adam is a 15-year old who has recently undergone treatments for Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, and he is a sophomore at West Windsor Plainsboro North High School.
“Adam’s Team” was originally started as a way of communication so that friends would be able to learn about Adam’s progress. Adam, however, wanted to do something for other children who were going through a similar situation to his. He wanted to collect money for research so that “no kid should have to go through cancer.”
He and his sisters sold bracelets and donated the money that was collected to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia on behalf of “Adam’s Team.” This concert is being organized to assist Adam with his hopes and wishes-to raise money to help find a cure for cancer.
Shoe Suede Blues features Peter Tork. Best known as the dimpled & naive member of the legendary 60's group, The Monkees, Peter Tork plays many instruments - keyboards, guitar, bass, banjo and various types of percussion and wind instruments.
During his early years, he enjoyed playing blues, gospel, classical and folk music. The blues have always held the strongest attraction for Peter, which continues today. Currently, Peter is performing, writing, producing and recording music, and traveling around the country with his blues band, Shoe Suede Blues.
