Vacaville: Zydeco Flames & Beaufunk Fundraiser
July 17 @ 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm
This is a 2-part fundraiser brought to you by Frazier Trager Presents to help raise money for victims of violence. Half (50%) of the proceeds are going directly to families that are dealing with the loss of a loved one due to an act of violence. The other half (50%) is going towards producing a dedicated music video with an original composition written for those dealing with this unexpected loss of life.
Special Announcement: The music video and will feature the Voena Children’s Choir and a few of them will perform “live” at the fundraiser for a special preview of the song along with a few other guest vocalists. The song is titled “The Chance to Say Goodbye” written by Timm Walker who will be performing with his bands BeaufunK and Zydeco Flames.
BeaufunK will perform the first set and will feature Michael Jeffries on vocals. Michael is a former lead singer for Tower of Power and delivers silky smooth vocals that pack a powerful funk punch! Since inception by founding member Timm Walker in 2007. The name BeaufunK has become synonymous with the funkiest in the Bay Area and beyond. This unit is known to bring crowds to their feet and out onto the dance floor.
The Zydeco Flames have gained a reputation as the West Coast’s premiere Zydeco band. The Flames consistently pack the house in venues ranging from contemporary clubs to major festivals and traditional dancehalls. Their sizzling roots rhythms are timeless and the execution of them relentless, with a stunningly powerful groove. The Flames’ sixth CD release “Fire It Up”, provides fans with hot Zydeco in the tradition of masters like Clifton Chenier, Buckwheat Zydeco and Queen Ida.
Don’t forget to bring your dancing shoes and thank you in advance for helping raise money for people who are suffering the unexpected loss of a loved one by an act of violence.
