The Valley’s star-studded Hurricane Harvey Relief Concert, originally slated for this Sunday at The Lesson Center’s Temple Theatre, has been postponed.
The Lesson Center and Thirteen Butterflies Production are inviting some of the Valley’s brightest musical stars to shine at the Allentown Masonic Temple (1524 W. Linden St.) on Sunday, September 17 — all in the name of Hurricane Harvey relief.
On Sunday, Rocking the Valley held a benefit for the recently-hospitalized Tommy Zito, a locally renowned musician and entertainer. The event became so big that it outgrew the internet radio station’s usual haunt of the Jetport Bar & Lounge.
Fortunately, an adjacent ballroom inside of the connected Days Inn hotel was available, providing the perfect space for a packed house and an inspired evening of local music.
The local music community is coming together for renowned local entertainer Tommy Zito, who was recently admitted to a hospital after falling ill. A GoFundMe page launched on Friday already has more than $1,200 toward its $25,000 goal to support Tommy and his wife, Jan, as the musician continues to receive treatment.
