HOPE FOR HAITI CONCERT

Funk*Fever presents…

On January 12th, disaster struck the poorest nation in the western hemisphere, with a 7.0 level earthquake centered right in Port-Au-Prince, it’s capital.  As the death toll skyrockets and with access to basic necessities still scarce, Haiti is in dire need of funds for both the immediate relief, as well as towards rebuilding.

This February 3rd, at 7:30 pm we’re inviting you to come over to Yugong Yishan to enjoy a very special night of music and dancing, with all the ticket proceeds going directly to those in need!  We’ve assembled a great line-up of bands and DJs playing a powerful blend of Afro & Caribbean rhythms; Reggae, Funk, Soul, Afrobeat, and Drum & Bass. 100% of your 50 RMB entrance ticket, as well as 10% of all bar takings, goes to Partners In Health (www.standwithhaiti.org), a grassroots organization that has been working on the ground in Haiti for over 20 years.  Our goal is to raise 50,000 RMB through tickets and donations, so come and get down to help others get up!

The Verse – Beijing’s one and only 10-piece funky big band!
