Legendary singer-songwriter Jackson Browne will perform live on stage at the historic Redford Theatre this Thursday, August 10, for a special benefit concert. All net proceeds raised from this performance will support the Redford Theatre, the Old Redford Re-Development Group and Echopark Guitars in their redevelopment efforts in forming the Old Redford Community Arts Foundation. Accompanying Browne will be long-time bandmate and multi-instrumentalist Greg Leisz.

“We are forming the Old Redford Community Arts Foundation together to help create arts education programs for the community by utilizing the Redford Theatre and eventually, the old Masonic Temple across the street from the theatre with the Old Redford Re-Development Group”, states Gabriel Currie, owner of Echopark Guitars. Tom O’Brien of the Old Redford Re-Development Group explains, “The Redford Theatre is the cornerstone of this neighborhood, so the idea is to build on that and really create a thriving arts & entertainment district.”

At the heart of this project is a strong belief in community, and the power of art to motivate and inspire. Although this show sold out in just a few hours after going on sale, the proceeds will go a long way to help achieve those goals and help establish the Redford Theatre as one of the newest and coolest concert venues in the city.

If you were lucky enough to be one of the 1500 or so music lovers to get tickets to this event – we can’t wait to see you there. If not, here’s a sample of how it might sound:
