BLACK BIRDS OF PARADISE describe themselves as “just another post modern psyche band with vibraphone filling the role usually reserved for guitar or organ.
CHARLES RIVERA is a guitarist from Louisville, Kentucky currently known for “continually redefining what living in the moment can truly entail….Charles’ style of no-holds-barred slobber-knocker music is said to have similar effects to eating human meat in the Canadian wilderness, thus earning him his nickname of ‘The Jazz Wendigo.’”
He’ll be playing in two groups this evening, QEN (a duo with drummer Greg Morris), and larger combo THE CHARLES RIVERA ENSEMBLE.
ABOUT STAR DUCK CHARITIES:
For over 15 years the members of Star Duck Charities have volunteered at St. Joseph’s Children’s Home located on Frankfort Ave. in Louisville, Kentucky. Originally, members volunteered their time and effort every second Saturday in August to operate the “Duck Pond” booth at the Home’s annual fund raising picnic. Now, its members have formed Star Duck Charities as a way to do more for needy children in the Greater Louisville area year-round. With six founding board members and over fifty volunteers, Star Duck Charities aims to provide much needed items and services to some of Louisville’s youngest in need.
At Star Duck Charities, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, 100% of all funds and donated items will go directly to children in need; none of its members or volunteers profit from donations. Perhaps our most important program is our monthly birthday party. Each month we take those children at St. Joe’s who have a birthday during that month to Gatiland for pizza and games. Afterwards each child gets a $100 shopping spree to a store of their choice.
In addition to our birthday party program, annual school supplies drive, and other community outreach we will continue to work with our founding corporate sponsor Cambridge Construction. With our 16 years of service to St. Joe’s through the Duck Pond, we have raised over $36,000 and been the source of countless smiles at the annual picnic. As opportunities arise and we expand our efforts, we will always be preparing for our involvement with the booth that is our namesake, the “Duck Pond”.
