Neumos Concert - January 6, 2007

Mercer, Bachmann, Phelps

Mitch organized this special night of great music by Eric Bachmann, James Mercer, and Joel RL Phelps at Neumos in Seattle. It raised over $13,000 for Charley's Fund.

As a thank you, the musicians were given gift baskets filled with Seattle area products. When Aidan went to the afternoon sound check with his parents, Mindy pointed out Eric Bachmann.

Aidan went running up to Eric shouting, "Eric, Eric, we brought you a present!" It was probably Eric's best "thank you."

Athima Chansanchai, reporter, and Meryl Schenker, photographer, interviewed Mitch and Mindy before the concert to help publicize the event. Thima's wonderful article and Meryl's poignant photographs can be seen on the Seattle PI web site.
