EricPalooza ... ChurcHill's Hideaway - June 12, 2004

LOCALS AT PLAY (excerpted from New Times (Miami's Weekly Planet..)
Rock for a good at Churchill's Pub, the ''Cradle of Indie Music.'' Miami bands are coming together for a benefit concert for Eric Haase, drummer for the local bands Manchild and Raw B. Jae & the Liquid Funk. Haase recently suffered a stroke and a brain aneurysm & had to undergo emergency surgery. Since he was without medical insurance at the time, he's got some serious bills piling up.
So Raw B. Jae & the Liquid Funk, The Dharma Bomb, Clambake, Nueva York & The Hoovers are performing to help him out; cover is $5; all proceeds go to Haase's medical bills.
Churchill's is at 5501 NE 2nd Ave., Miami

Local & Indie Music by Rene Alvarez

Churchill's dominates the weekend with great shows, teary good-byes, & familial gatherings. Aren't you getting warm and fuzzy inside just thinking about it?
The mission to get onetime local drummer Eric Haase back onstage comes to Miami. Known around here for being a member of such bands as Manchild and Raw B Jae & the Liquid Funk, the now Tampa-based drummer suffered a severe aneurysm & stroke last February. Though recovering nicely, he has years of expensive rehab awaiting him, & this is where you can help. Raise some medical bill cash on Saturday, June 12, at Churchill's Performing are the Dharma Bomb, Clambake, the Hoovers, and the return of Raw B Jae & the Liquid Funk! That's what love does. Doors open at 9 p.m., donations start at $5, and it's an 18-& over show. Can't make it? Send a nice get-well card and a check made payable to The Benefit for Eric Haase to Megan Donoho, 1914 S. Dale Mabry, Tampa, FL 33629 and make sure Haas has nothing to worry about except getting back on the drums.

Churchill's Hideaway.. (Miami's answer to CBGB's in NYC). Performers - The Dharma Bomb, Clambake 2000, The Hoovers (featuring SuperDave), & the Reunited Raw B. Jae & the Liquid Funk!.

I took more pix @ the event, & will post them as soon as I get a second.For now you can see pix & read about it on The Dharma Bomb site. It was a hoot. I felt like I was on South Beach in the heyday of local music there. Thanks to everyone who helped with the raffle, especially SuperDave Gordon, DJ Le Spam & Spam All-Stars, & Hi-Ho Batik. & thanks also to Dave & all @ Churchill's.
