ARTICLE: Retune Nashville Benefit Auction and Concert

Saturday, October 23rd a Benefit Concert and Art Auction Event was held at Soundcheck, Nashville’s massive music gear storage and rehearsal facility which suffered massive flood damages in May. The event was a kick-off to the global online auction of more than 70 original art pieces created from flood-damaged music instruments. Light hors d'oeuvres and wine were served during the art viewing and live art auction portion of the event, where a small selection of "ReTuned" gear will be up for bidding. All other "ReTuned" items will be auctioned off online each month leading up to the anniversary of Nashville's devastating floods. A silent auction of other items donated from Nashville artists and musicians also took place.

Guests were entertained by Jamie, O'Neal, best known for her chart-topping singles “Arizona” and “When I Think About Angels,” and the wildly popular “Somebody’s Hero,” An Academy of Country Music Top Female Vocalist and a multi-nominated Grammy songwriter.

Also on hand was a strong line up and list of passionate and talented musicians and performers creating a unque eclectic musical experience. Performers included Anthony Smith, Jeremy Lister, Eddy Raven, Kentucky Thunder (Jonell Mosser, Etta Britt, Sheila Lawrence, Vickie Carrico), Sean O'Bryan Smith, and Derek St. Holmes.
House Band: Roger Eaton (Lorrie Morgan, Barbara Mandrell) on lead guitar, Dave Fowler (Jamie O’Neal Collin Raye) on bass, Jack Garvin (Charlie Daniels, Tanya Tucker) on drums, Michael Webb (John Fogerty, Gary Allan) on keys, and Scott Neubert (Hal Ketchum, Chalee Tennison) on acoustic guitar 

 ReTune Nashville is a 100% volunteer effort, and all proceeds from ticket sales, auction items and merchandise will directly benefit Nashville's musicians through MusiCares Nashville Flood Relief and the Nashville Musician's Association Flood Relief Fund.
