The Grass Roots to Headline Meadow Brook Theatre's Gala Fundraiser
The event includes a pre-glow reception, strolling dinner, incredible silent auction shopping and a one-night-only concert with the band. All proceeds benefit Meadow Brook Theatre, a nonprofit organization and Michigan's largest professional theatre.
A dozen local restaurants and eateries, wine and beer sampling and a silent auction including trips, jewelry and many more items will all be a part of the pre-concert event. Bid on tickets to Disney World, handbags, Mackinac Island adventures and much more.
In the entire history of Rock n' Roll, only 9 bands -(including The Beatles) have charted more hits on Billboard's Hot 100 than The Grass Roots. Their classic hits include, "Midnight Confessions", "Temptation Eyes", and "Let's Live for Today". Formed in 1965, The Grass Roots have 29 chart singles; 13 of which went gold followed by 2 gold albums and 1 platinum album. The Grass Roots have continued to be one of the most recognized groups on "Classic Rock" stations for over 50 years.
"We're so excited to have The Grass Roots come to Meadow Brook Theatre," said Cheryl Marshall, MBT Managing Director. "Our intimate theatre space is going to make for a GREAT concert¾no seat is more than 60 feet from the stage!¾It's going to be an unforgettable evening with strolling dinner by a dozen local restaurants, cocktails, silent and live auction and more!"
Pre-concert reception featuring strolling cuisine, wine and cocktails begins at 6 p.m. Concert performance starts at 7:30 p.m. Concert & Cuisine is a 'black tie creative' event-flip flops and cocktail dresses, tuxedo t-shirts, sneakers, or keep it classic and enjoy a rockin' evening at the theatre!
