1/7/10 Len & Bob Bash
Tickets are still available for the Jan. 14 “Len & Bob Bash,” presented by Bud Light, at the House of Blues in Chicago. This year’s concert will feature performances by G. Love & Special Sauce and The Baseball Project. And Len Kasper and Bob Brenly, the Cubs’ television broadcasters, also will get on stage and perform.
G. Love & Special Sauce is known for a unique blues sound while mixing in classic R&B music. The Baseball Project is composed of avid baseball fans Peter Buck, Scott McCaughey, Linda Pitmon and Steve Wynn. Each song is related to the sport, including “Jackie’s Lament” about Jackie Robinson and “Harvey Haddix,” which names 17 of the 18 pitchers in baseball history to throw a perfect game.
Tickets are on sale at the House of Blues and on-line at their website. Advanced tickets are $27.50; they’re $30 the day of the show. It’s a great cause and great fun.
Proceeds will benefit Cubs Charities. Since 2006, the Len & Bob Bash has raised more than $107,000 for Cubs Charities.
