Presents a benefit concert for two very special organizations
The Grow Clinic at Boston Medical Center and The Children’s Room
The Grow Clinic provides comprehensive specialty care for children with Failure to Thrive.
The Children’s Room provides caring support for grieving children, teens, and families.
First Church’s own keyboardist and singer, Richard Curzi, returns to the Second Friday Coffeehouse for the tenth time, performing both sets in a variety of musical configurations guaranteed to delight lovers of all music genres.
The first set will be an “unplugged” acoustic set featuring Richard on solo piano; First Church’s own a cappella blue-grass gospel quartet, The Linden Singers (with Roger Read, Paul Judge, and John Howe), and The Blood Mountain Brothers (with Roger Brown, Jim Wooster, and Paul Judge) that performed Americana roots music to great acclaim this past April at the Berklee College Café 939.
The second set will be classic Positive Energy fare – an unconventionally eclectic mix of nostalgic pop, jazz, and even Celtic styles, with lots of richly textured vocal harmonies and virtuosic instrumental improvisations.
Positive Energy has audiences saying “We were in a frenzy of delight – I can’t remember smiling so much!” The band, which recently drew a sellout crowd and raised over $11,000 for Haiti, features Roger Brown and Mark Kohler on drums and percussion, Rick Dimino on bass, Jerry Twomey, Jim Wooster, & Rich Vettel on guitar, and vocalists Paul Judge, Bridget Curzi, with Kate Judge, Roger Read, and John Howe.
