Mark Cutler, a veteran and consistently brilliant musician recently played at a benefit for the Lily and Jake fund held at The Met in Pawtucket. You can find out more here about these two Rhode Island children orphaned by domestic violence. Lily and Jake were there, and when Mark sang an old song by the Five Stairsteps, ‘Ooh child, things are gonna get easier’ I almost lost it.
Another benefit is planned for Sunday, June 3, and there is an ongoing fund to support Lily and Jake and their wonderful foster parents. Find more here.
I got to see Mark Cutler and the Schemers play in Warwick last night. I didn’t plan to dance but it was impossible not to.
It’s a good summer for music.
Rhode Island, birthplace of the diner, is going nationwide this Monday, February 22.
Everyman Bistro will host a viewing party, starting at 8:30, to celebrate the appearance of the Libery Elm Diner on The Food Network at 10:00pm.
Music will be provided by The Killdevils, Lucky 57, and Mark Cutler and Friends. I count myself as one of Mark Cutler’s friends. Though I’m not a musician I love listening to him.
