Local musician Jim Brown is promoting Sunday’s all-day concert in City Park as a food drive for the Coeur d’Alene Food Bank.
The fifth-annual “Gathering of Good Vibes” will feature seven local bands, a jam session and drum circle. The music will pulsate in the park from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m..
Brown is asking people to bring an item for the food bank, which is desperately in need of food. The food bank has been housed temporarily at St. Vincent de Paul since May, when the North Idaho Community Action Agency closed its doors because of debt problems.
The bands playing Sunday are Moments of Clarity, The Culprits, Project 33, The Rumrunners, The Bossman Band, Jukebox Dave and the Acoustic Music Guild. The day will end with a drum circle open to all drummers.
Brown also is promoting a tour of the Chuck Hall Band, a blues band from Pheonix, next weekend as a continuation of the food drive. The band plays Aug. 29 at Tubbs Coffee House, Aug. 30 at Eichard’s in Sandpoint, Aug. 31 at the Green Owl in Priest River and Sept. 1 at T.W. Fisher’s.
