Event Description

July 25, 2016 Updated Jul 25, 2016 at 11:14 AM EDT

Veseria, Shiny Shiny Black to headline Concert of Hope.
The Huntington's Disease Foundation (HDFI) will host the ​Concert of Hope 2016 ​at Calhoun Street Soup, Salads and Spirits, 1915 S Calhoun Street on Saturday, September 10​​, at 8 p.m.

Standing room only crowds are expected at this fundraiser designed to raise awareness of Huntington's Disease (HD). All proceeds will support the HDFI’s fight to improve the lives of people impacted by Huntington’s Disease, a devastating, hereditary, degenerative brain disorder that results in a loss of cognitive, behavioral and physical control. HD slowly diminishes the affected individual’s ability to walk, think, talk and reason. More than 30,000 people in the United States are currently diagnosed with HD and 200,000 are at risk. There is currently no treatment or cure.

“We are pleased to partner with these terrific bands and other community organizations to underwrite the vital work of HDFI and raise awareness in Northern Indiana,” said Event Chair Paul Briggs.

Veseria ​is "...a well­rounded outfit who play to each others' strengths. This is a band whose hearts are all in." Veseria is a group of musicians with vastly diverse backgrounds and one common denominator: a deep understanding of and passion for Rock and Roll.
Five years in, they have acquired a massive following in their hometown of Indianapolis and are poised for rapid growth regionally and beyond, with sold out shows in a variety of venues including Hi/Fi, Radio Radio and Southgate House Revival. They have performed alongside big names in rock music such as Panic! At the Disco, Bad Company and Lynyrd Skynyrd. www.veseria.bandcamp.com
