Bay Area natives and platinum record selling band Counting Crows will headline a fundraiser to benefit fire relief efforts in the North Bay and Sonoma County on Saturday, November 18 at Weill Hall at the Green Music Center at Sonoma State University.
The concert, titled For the Love of Sonoma, stars Counting Crows, known for their hits “Mr. Jones” and “Round Here,” and Brett Dennen, a singer-songwriter from the San Joaquin Valley. The Family Coppola, owners of Francis Ford Coppola Winery, Virginia Dare Winery, and Inglenook, are partnering with BottleRock Presents to produce the concert.
“Nearly all of us who work with BottleRock Napa Valley and BottleRock Presents events live in the North Bay and have been affected by these devastating fires in one way or another,” says Dave Graham, CEO of BottleRock, “We felt it was important to also bring music directly to the North Bay to raise both money and the spirits of our friends and neighbors in wine country.”
All proceeds from the concert will benefit the North Bay Fire Relief Fund, which benefits fire relief efforts throughout the North Bay, and Noma Gives, which benefits Sonoma State University students, staff and faculty displaced and impacted by the wildfires.
Tickets start at $50 and go on sale Thursday, November 2 at 10AM.
