The community on 4th Street is coming together to support one of its own. On Tuesday, December 21st from 7-11:30 pm the Art Theatre of Long Beach will open its doors to present music and merrymaking in benefit of 4th Street publicist Diane Gershuny, who has been battling esophageal cancer since July of 2010. The good news is the cancer is nearly 100% in remission but the aftermath is a slew of hospital and treatment bills not covered by insurance. All proceeds from the event will go towards those medical expenses incurred.
The event will feature three Long Beach musical artists: roots rocker/guitarist Brophy Dale, Ray Barbee & the Mattson 2 and Cowboys and Indian. Plus, DJ sets by The Almighty Nectar. Look for special drinks, and goodies to be raffled on the night of the event.
“Diane is a true advocate of the arts and small business, and has worked tirelessly to help promote the 4th Street community,” offered Logan Crow of Long Beach Cinematheque and MondoCelluloid.com. “Her support was key to the success of events such as ‘4th Street in Motion’ (4,000 attendance) and MondoCelluloid.com’s ‘Zombie Walk,’ (2,200 attendance) and she always gets the job done with a smile and an eagerness to do more. While she's a ‘paid’ publicist, she receives only a nominal fee. Now it's our turn to help our friend, Diane, who is fighting a brave but expensive fight."
About the Artists:
Brophy Dale has gained a widespread respect for his passionate roots-rockin’ guitar and vocals, playing all over the globe, from Anchorage to Zurich. He honed his guitar chops in the Midwest, playing in countless Rock, R&B, Blues, Oldies, and Country bands that set him on a journey that has taken him from local bar guitar hero to an internationally recognized performer. He's had the opportunity to work with some of his heroes including Dave Edmunds, Delbert McClinton and Scotty Moore. Over the last dozen years, Brophy has worked steadily with Alligator recording artist Lee Rocker, a Rockabilly/Americana cat who came to fame in the '80s as bassist for the wildly popular Stray Cats.
Ray Barbee Meets The Matson 2
Fashioned in tall mod suits and stylized blond locks, the internationally praised alt-jazz duo, Mattson 2, consists of brothers Jared on guitar and Jonathan on drums. Mattson 2 is joined by Ray Barbee, who first gained wide acclaim as one of the first famous street skaters in the 1980s, is also a music writer and multi-instrumentalist.
Cowboy & Indian
Born out of a love of the Old West and the rumble of trains, Cowboy and Indian collaborate to turn their passion into your entertainment. Cowboy and Indian come to represent the beauty and whimsical nature of bygone days, when a guitar, a drum and a song could unite two seemingly opposite cultures. As much as myth, folklore and misconceptions have been bred out of our history, Cowboy and Indian would like to share with you for a moment the simple truths that are best related through song and dance.
