Vermont’s Own Come Home To Play And Raise Money For Vermont Flood Relief

Coming on the heels of the wildly successful Phish concert Wednesday night at The Champlain Valley Fairgrounds in Essex Junction, Vermont (over 12,000 attended) to raise money for ongoing Vermont Flood Relief now comes great news of another homegrown gone National Act, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals have announced they too are playing a benefit concert Sunday, October 9th, 2011 at 7pm at The Flynn Theater for the Performing Arts in Burlington VT. Tickets will go on sale this Tuesday, September 20th beginning at 10am. Tickets will be available online at, by phone at 802-86-FLYNN, and in person at the Flynn box office on Main Street in Burlington, organizers said. Tickets are priced at $30 for balcony seats, $50 for reserved floor seating and $250 for elite admission, a cocktail reception and a meet-and-greet, organizers just announced.

Grace Potter states, “I want to make sure the money raised goes directly to the restoration of the most devastated businesses, farms and families in Vermont.” The band is expecting to raise several hundred thousand dollars. This comes on the heels of Phish’s show which quite possibly raised slightly over a 1.2 million dollars!!! I wish to extend my personal special thanks to these bands for bringing us joy, their music, people together to recognize and participate in all ways possible to support those in greatest need in soulful Vermont.

I am extremely proud to live in this state where everyone is doing something, anything to pitch in and help those whose lives, homes and businesses have been so incredibly impacted by Tropical Storm Irene. Everywhere I go, people are finding ways to do SOMETHING. Winter is coming. There’s not a moment to waste.

A special shout out to my, soon-to-be 20 year old son, Will, for coming home from North Carolina to pitch in at a random homeowners house in Waterbury VT doing demo work last Wednesday with me and the Phun we had at Phish that same night for Phlood Recovery!
