Chicago to perform Nov. 19 at B.B. King Blues Club & Grill for Musicians on Call BenefitNovember 9, 2012 - by City Guide News Desk
Musicians On Call (MOC), a nonprofit organization that has been bringing live and recorded music to the bedsides of patients in healthcare facilities since 1999, is hosting a special benefit concert with the legendary rock band Chicago at B.B. King Blues Club & Grill on November 19.
When Chicago played the MOC Benefit Concert last year the response was so great that the band volunteered to do it again this year. Admission includes hors d'oeuvres, open bar, and exclusive meet-and-greets for top sponsors. An auction on Charity Buzz (charitybuzz.com) will support MOC's fundraising efforts by including a chance to bid on two front row seats to a Chicago concert, a chance to sing the hit song, "If You Leave Me Now" on stage with the band, and two backstage meet & greet passes. Chicago is currently in New York to promote their new two CD set, "The Ultimate Christmas Collection," featuring 34 holiday favorites.
Tickets for the concert start at $125. VIP packages are available and can be purchased at musiciansoncall.org.
For more than a decade, MOC has worked with renowned artists in different musical genres for its annual fundraiser--John Mayer, James Taylor, and Lady Antebellum, to name a few. Billboard Magazine lists Chicago as #13 of the Top 100 artists of all time.
