Performing hits by artists ranging from Elvis, Chuck Berry and Buddy Holly to The Beatles, Chubby Checker and Willie Nelson, THE MOON CATS will bring the sounds of the 1950’s & 60’s to The Cottage Event Center Friday, August 24. The concert, which is the group’s first appearance at the Roanoke venue, will raise funds for the Shepherd’s House facility for Homeless Veterans.
THE MOON CATS are made up of Mark Most- Lead Vocalist, Michael Miller- Lead Guitar & Vocals, Matt Butler- Bass & Vocals, and Scott Herzog- Drums. Prior to forming THE MOON CATS, Most and Butler were members of the popular band SURRENDER DOROTHY which opened for such big name acts as Mitch Ryder, Gary Lewis & The Playboys and Paul Revere and the Raiders front man Mark Lindsey.
Shepherd’s House is a long term, residential/transitional housing center for alcohol and chemically addicted men, located in Fort Wayne. Their website, www.shepherdshouse.org, describes their mission as rebuilding “the lives of those who society views as hopeless into sober and productive assets to the community” and returning Veterans to be self-sufficient, employed, and empowered with a sober vision of hope for the future.
