Three bands from the Rotary Club of Bay St Louis to battle it out in a fundraiser for Ochsner Hancock Covid Medical Staff at Dan B’s Restaurant & Bar on Saturday September 11, 2021!
Bay St. Louis, MS –
The Rotary Club of Bay St Louis has a unique claim when the club found itself with three club members having popular local bands: Rotary member Dave Mayley with his Dave Mayley Band, member John Anderson with his Electric Sheep Band, and member Chad Barnett with his Assumed Risk Band. On Saturday, September 11, from 2:00 p.m. until 5:30 p.m., the three bands will perform a “Battle of the Bands” event at the popular downtown beach front bar at Dan B’s. Admission is free, and members of the Rotary Club will be on hand at the event taking donations that will directly benefit Ochsner Hancock Covid Medical Staff.
”There will be a donation table set up next to the stage inside Dan B’s, and the band that collects the most donations during their set wins the Battle! It’s also the annual Second Saturday Art Walk on Main Street that day, so we should have a great turn-out,” said event organizer and Bay St Louis Rotary President David Hilbert. “During this pandemic wave we are currently in the middle of, the Rotary Club of Bay St Louis wants to help bring some joy to our own local Ochsner Hancock Covid Medical Staff, and our Battle of the Bands will raise funds that can be used towards things like goodie bags or a catered appreciation lunch for these for these frontline workers, depending on how much we raise!”.
The Assumed Risk Band starts at 2:00 p.m., followed by Dave Mayley Band at 3:00 p.m., and The Electric Sheep Band at 4:00 p.m.
Wilson Thomas, CEO of Ochsner Hancock Medical Center, added, “Thank you for your support for our COVID-19 Front Line Heroes. We appreciate your generosity and recognition at a time when we all need to stand together.”
