“I’ve been wanting to do a charity event for a long time, I just didn’t have the time to get it together,” Hoyer said. “Some time opened up this summer and I started calling people. Every one of the clubs was happy to jump in, every one of the bands, too. When I told them it was total charity event, that no one was getting paid, they all said ‘yes.'”
That charity event is the NE Funk and Soul Alliance and it will take place Saturday, December 10.
A total of 23 bands and four DJs will perform in the Zoo Bar, Duffy’s Tavern, Bodega’s Alley and 1867 from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m.
