Ron Sarfaty ("the guy in the wheel chair" who video tapes the singer-songwriters all over Los Angeles) totaled his accessible van a couple of weeks ago. He was bruised up a lot, but is now doing fine.
The Los Angeles singer-songwriter community is coming together in support. The performances at the benefit will include:
Songwriters in-the-round with
Wendy Waldman, John Batdorf, and Dave Tucker
and additional performances by:
Lauren Adams · Severin Browne · Fur Dixon Susie Glaze · Jeff Gold · Earl Grey & Lisa Johnson Tom Hubbard & Ken Holme (H2) · Michael Wesley Hughes · Arlene Kole
John Mollenhauer · Dave Morrison · Lisa Nemzo Tracy Newman · Tara Sitser · Gary Stockdale · Ric Taylor Tim Tedrow & Terry Vreeland · Jaynee Thorne · Ed Tree Chad Watson & Pam Loe · Joyce Woodson · John Zipperer
In addition, an upstairs song circle will be hosted by
Tom Hubbard & John Mollenhauer
Ron has been a major asset to the singer-songwriter community for 11 years, video-taping performers at their gigs and editing the videos for them, all for free. Never charging a dime. He has insurance for the van (it was 18 years old with 250,000 miles), but it is for current value only and not replacement value.
A core group of some of Ron's closest friends has come together to make this event happen. This group includes: Jaynee Thorne, John & Julie Zipperer, Roz Larman, Jeff Gold & Holly Goldsmith, Paul Zollo, and Russ & Julie Paris.
Ron has always been there for the music community, for the love of the music and the people who make it. We hope you can join us at The Talking Stick, Sunday May 5, 2013, so we can be there for him.
