NEWPORT, KY (FOX19) -
Twenty-nine Greater Cincinnati rock bands performed at Thompson House
Newport for the Autism Sings Kentucky benefit, raising over $5,000 for the
Autism Speaks charity.
Organized by Rockstars Glued in
coordination with Thompson House, Autism Sings Kentucky's goal was to bring
together the Greater Cincinnati music scene to help raise money for Autism
Speaks - the leading autism science and advocacy organization.
Proceeds from ticket sales and
raffles from the Saturday's event brought in over $5,000, with tallies from the
silent auction and offsite donations not yet available.
All three stages of the historic
Thompson House were utilized for the event. Regional rockers Black Cloud
Syndrome and Shotgun Surprise, along with up-and-comers Cinema Sleep, helped
pack out the Rockstar Lounge Stage.
Crowd favorites such as Sinful Crow and 5-Thirteen played The Parlor.
Bands One Day Alive, The Last
Troubadour, Livid, and Detrimental closed out the show in The Tommy Gun
Autism Sings Kentucky was the
idea of Rockstars Glued personalities Billy Tomlin and Jamie "Bella" Hensley,
who made a vow with their friends on New Year's Eve to do more to raise
awareness of Autism.
Both Tomlin's son as well as
the son of fellow organizer Joelinda Acevedo are autistic. With the help of
family, friends, and the kind people of Greater Cincinnati and Northern
Kentucky, they succeeded with their goal.
Though a great deal of buzz for
the event was created by the bands and organizers, local personalities and the
media also gave support. 96Rock morning personality "Fin" provided an
unexpected boost to the event when he talked about it on the air. ClassX Radio
interviewed some of the bands performing in the weeks prior to the benefit.
Interested parties can still
help out with donations. U.S. Bank will continue to accept funds for "Autism
Sings" at all of their branches. As well, FOX19 News-sponsored donation-texts
allow those interested in giving money to text "AUTISM" or
"AUTISTIC" to 41919 in order to donate. These options will be available
through the end of August.
Performers included: Tall Stars 45036, Tall Stars 45209,
Melodic Connections, Livid, Detrimental, The Last Troubadour, One Day Alive,
Tangled Luck, Black Cloud Syndrome, Shotgun Surprise, Kill Box, School of Rock,
