Tim Ries to perform at Dundee tornado benefitWritten by Mary Petrides | | firstname.lastname@example.org
Tim Ries, a Tecumseh native who has performed with the Rolling Stones, will headline a concert at 7:30 p.m. June 25 Tecumseh Center for the Arts. The concert will benefit the people of Dundee whose homes were damaged or destroyed in the June 5 tornadoes.
“When I called him, he said ‘oh my,’ got online, looked at the photographs, and said ‘I’ll be there,’” said Johanna Walker, director of Tecumseh Center for the Arts.
Ries plays “a little of everything, from jazz to rock” on his saxophone, Walker said.
Other performers, including Measured Chaos, Pat Dunn and Matt Selkey, will perform, Walker said.
A minimum donation of $12 is requested. Checks can be made out to United Way of Monroe County, with “Dundee Tornado Disaster Relief” in the memo line.
