The annual tradition of musicians helping shelter animals continues on April 14, when organizer John Delola presents the annual Shelter Slam event at Endwell Greens in Endwell.
The event, which has grown in popularity, and supports various rescue organizations, kicks off at 1 p.m. and will feature close to 20 bands on two different stages. The doors open at noon.
Admission to the event is $13, with the proceeds benefiting several rescue organizations to include Pibbles and More, the Binghamton Humane Society, Willows Wings, S.P.E.A.K., Every Dogs Dream, and more. You can also donate an equivalent amount of pet food in lieu of the admission fee.
Bands slated to perform include the Recycled Zombies; Greenberg, Wu, Caruso and Alton; Drama Scream; Tijuana Danger Dogs; Trace of Life; Rust; Threatpoint; Wreckless Marci; Broken Arrow and Burning Moonlight; The Kiil; O.C.D.; Hating Amy; Kreature; Chief Big Way; Battery; and special celebrity host, Phil Varone, formerly of Skid Row and Saigon Kick.
Also, for the April 14 event, will be a special celebration for one of the volunteers for Shelter Slam, Heather Black. Black, along with her fiancé, Kevin Hill, will be tying the knot on stage.
The event will be held rain or shine, and is open to all ages. There will be vendors, raffles, food and prizes.
Endwell Greens is located on Sally Piper Road in Endwell, N.Y.
