The P.T.A. of the Spruce Street School will be rocking out and raising spirits April 18 to benefit South Street Seaport businesses still hurting from Superstorm Sandy.
The Spirit Project is an outdoor concert fundraiser aiming to bring the community together around the age-old celebration of good food, good music and good people. Funds will be raised by the sale of donated beer and wine and food.
New York-based rock musician Jeff Tuohy will be presenting his signature blend of pop hooks and melodic interludes that are accessible to all ages. Tuohy, a Connecticut native and internationally acclaimed singer/songwriter, is described as a fusion of John Mayer and Dave Matthews with a dynamic set that blends musical genres with ease.
Also on the bill, the five-piece indie roots band The Hollows blend their a wide array of influences from folk, rockabilly and country blues into a signature sound on an even wider array of instruments.
And a South Street Seaport regular, The Crusty Gentlemen, which plays at Cowgirl Sea-Horse, will provide local flavor. Describing themselves as “old enough to know better, but you’d never know it,” they promise to provide a bluegrass experience and “Hillbilly Chaos.”
Sponsors include Howard Hughes Corporation, Radeberger, Pasanella & Son, Canal Sound & Light and Nova Graphics.
The event will take place Thurs., April 18, from 5-9 p.m., on Front St. between Beekman & Fulton Sts., rain or shine.
