Allstar Veterans of the High Hat Music Club come together for one night for "High Hat at The Watt", a Hurricane Irma/Maria relief benefit show supporting Kenney Chesney's "Love For Love City" Foundation. "Love City" is the nickname for St.John, but the Foundation is supporting all of the Virgin Islands including Jost Van Dyke in the BVI.
So far the lineup includes members of Interstellar Boys (Todd Nance, Danny Hutchens, John Neff and John Mills), Five Eight, William Tonks and company, Todd McBride's Bullseye Foot and more special gusets to be added. Tickets will be $10 in advance, $12 at the door.
There will be an online silent auction with donations from The Drive By Truckers, G Love and Special Sauce, Wide Spread Panic, Kenney Chesney, REM, and many more.
On September 6, 2017 Hurricane Irma, the strongest hurricane ever recorded in Atlantic basin history, ravaged the Virgin Islands, leaving many homeless and most unemployed as we are a tourism based economy. While much progress is being made to get back to some semblance of normalcy, the effort will take years and the government response has been anemic at best. It's the private efforts of groups like Kenny Chesney, Michael Bloomberg and Tim Duncn that are making a huge difference and are setiing the example on how disaster relief should be conducted.
