Music Heals - A Benefit Delivering Music to Children in Need

Proceeds from this show will go to The Mangold Music Foundation. The goal of the Mangold Music Foundation is to create music in the lives of children in need of hope; to put guitars and ukuleles in the hands of hospitalized children, to create music programs in underprivileged communities where the arts have been removed, to bring the gift of music to those who cannot afford the opportunity.

It takes 30 instruments to fill a pediatric cancer ward with music. It takes 10 guitars, 10 music stands, and 10 lesson books to create music programs for 50 children.

The Mangold Music Foundation is a non-profit organization set out to bring music to those in need.

Short Bus

The Short Bus consists of singer Mark Zelenz, lead guitarist/vocalist Ernie Albert, drummer Kenny Muller, bassist/vocalist Jordan West and rapper/rhythm guitarist Pete Sullivan. The Short Bus performs mainly at numerous regional events such as country club parties and fundraising benefits. They occasionally perform in the local club circuit as well.

The band’s repertoire ranges from AC/DC and Prince to more current material from Coldplay, Maroon 5 and Eminem a. “I can’t believe they played that!” is often heard when The Short Bus is onstage.


Immersed in the New Americana movement, Fingersleeve has been delivering signature tone, groove, and twang to audiences throughout the area.

Sometimes tongue-in-cheek, always gutsy, this AmericanaRockBlues outfit is always a good time. Vocal duties are shared by the three primary songwriters, along with blistering guitars, scorching harmonica, and down-home rhythms. Live music the way it oughta be
