On Saturday, February 9th the House of Blues Boston offered refuge from snow storm "Nemo" to the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Massachusetts Bay and their supporters.
The event’s goal was to raise funds and awareness for the organization. They have put the call out for male volunteers to become Big Brothers to 1,000 boys in Mass Bay who are currently on the waiting list for a Big. In the end, the event raised $1.4M for the organization and over 500 people attended.
Sharon Jones' band The Dap-Kings could not make it due to the snow conditions but it did not inhibit her ability to entertain and captivate with Grace Potter & the Nocturnals jumping in to "lend a band!" Grace Potter & the Nocturnals brought the soulful "rock-out" experience to the audience which made this BIG night worth every penny that was donated!
