The 2nd Great Danes In Need benefit concert is taking place on Saturday, Novemeber 30th, 2013 at The Fairview Pub to raise money for the Great Dane rescue group New Hope For Danes, which provides care for abandoned, abused, neglected and stray Great Danes that need veterinarian attention in order to become healthy and adoptable.

Great Danes are a very special breed of dog that exhibits boundless love and loyalty at a level few humans have ever experienced. A 170-pound black Great Dane in Chicago saved a 14 year old girl from being raped when he and his owner cornered and detained the assailant until police arrived. Two Great Danes alerted a new mother by barking and jumping into the family pool, where she found her baby face down with the Danes valiantly trying to push him to safety. A Great Dane in Missouri was given an award of valor for his efforts in saving his owner from her boyfriend who was attacking her with a hammer. The Dane selflessly covered his owner's body, taking the brunt of the attack and enduring a broken hip and several fractured ribs while defending her.

This fundraiser seeks to contribute even a fraction of the love back to these dogs that they have shown to us humans. Thank you for your support.

Semi-Tone Riot (pop/punk/50s/rock)

Semi-tone Riot first started out in 2010 as a late night acoustic project by lead singer Barry Green. After playing solo acoustic stuff around town Barry wanted to rock the songs up with a faster tempo and heavier guitars. This meant the acoustic guitar would be collecting some dust while the electrics got busted out. So in early 2011 Barry called... more info
