"Peace, Love & the Joy of Music: Ellis Kell Family Benefit Concert" announced for January 21st

DAVENPORT, 12/22/16 - The avalanche of community support the River Music Experience (RME) has received over the last few days on behalf of Ellis Kell is truly remarkable. To honor Ellis' legacy and support his family, RME will host a benefit concert to give back to a family whose impact on our community is immeasurable.

"Peace, Love & the Joy of Music: Ellis Kell Family Benefit Concert," will take place on Saturday, January 21, 2017 in the Great Hall at the RiverCenter from 5-11 p.m.

We invite the public to a night full of live music and appreciation for Ellis' legacy with proceeds going to the Kell family. Advance ticket sales will be available soon, and donations can be made at the event by participating in silent & live auctions, a 50/50 raffle, poster sales and more.

Please save Saturday, Jan. 21 in your calendar and plan to spend the evening honoring this wonderful family that has given so much to the community. More event details will be released in the coming weeks.

What we know so far

Update: Information we have so far
The plan is to have 2 stages and rotate so there will be less than 10 minutes between sets, similar to the set-up at River Roots Live.

Three area artists have been tasked with creating commemorative posters for the event. Prints of these posters will be available for sale at the event.

More as we get it!
