Save the Bob! A Virtual Benefit Concert
March 26, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Art brings our community together!
Juan de Fuca Foundation for the Arts is proud to present Save the Bob, a virtual benefit concert to support a beloved art and music venue. Attend virtually and enjoy pure distilled country music from FarmStrong live streamed straight from Studio Bob.
About FarmStrong: Jim Faddis, Cort Armstrong, Rick Meade and John Pyles collaborate in an acoustic quartet that puts singing at the forefront of their sound. A very simple and distinctive instrumentation accompanies the band’s smooth vocal sound and brings the songs they perform to life. Like a fine whiskey, FarmStrong’s sound is pure distilled country magic. Not exactly what some would consider a country band, and definitely not a bluegrass band, FarmStrong taps deep into the roots of these musical genres, as it reaches beyond the surface to a vast array of American roots based music, from folk and rock, to Motown and blues.
About Studio Bob: Bob Stokes began to host monthly art events at his downtown PA venue, Studio Bob, in 2007. He has been a steady presence in the art community, hosting various shows, offering performances, and bringing people together while supporting the arts for over 14 years. The pandemic has hurt many businesses and Studio Bob is one of them. Though the business is operated on a small monthly budget, it has had no revenue for almost a year and it is in need of a financial boost to survive. Studio Bob falls through the cracks regarding any type of emergency financial assistance (grants, PPP loans, etc.). Studio Bob began with art exhibits and has expanded its offerings to include a wide range of art shows, as well as community outreach, student art shows, and affordable space for private gatherings.
Opportunities to contribute to Studio Bob’s “Go Fund Me” campaign will exist throughout the night.
