Now that Maryland is beginning to thaw out it is time to make some plans to get out, enjoy an intimate performance by a great Blues band and support a great cause. Join the Kelly Bell Band as they celebrate their 21st birthday at their ‘Coming of Age CD Release Party and Benefit for the Fisher House Foundation’ on Saturday, Feb. 6, at 5:00pm in the Blue Heron Room located at Quiet Waters Park in Annapolis. The Fisher House Foundation is a wonderful organization which offers a comfort network of residences for military and veterans’ families, providing them a place where they can stay at no cost while a loved one is receiving treatment at major military and VA medical centers nationwide.
This is an all ages event and includes a meet and greet with the band which begins at 5:00pm. A scrumptious Soul Food dinner with the band will be catered by Guilianova’s of Westminster and starts at 5:30pm. All the details can be found on the Coming of Age CD Release Party Facebook event page here.
