A benefit concert for Little Brothers Friends of the Elderly is being held this Friday at the Rozsa Center.
The concert is in memory of Ken Steiner, who Michigan Tech’s Jared Anderson says was a lover of music himself.
Anderson said, “He was an active musician in the community. He sang in the Michigan Tech concert choir. He played blues harmonica and he would be seen often times in many of the opportunities the bands would play here. He would sit in and jam with them. He always had his harmonica with him.”
Steiner was also well known for his cooking and he could often be found helping out Little Brothers.
“He would cook for us all year round at all of our activities from our Valentine’s Party to our Mother’s Day dinner to picnics, Halloween and then on holidays, so many people know Ken because he took charge of our site in Hancock every Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter,” said Little Brothers Executive Director Cathy Aten.
Performers will include Steve Jones and The Garden City Hot Club at 7:00; Uncle Pete’s All Star BBQ Blues Band at 8:15, Outlaw’d at 9:30. The evening will also include good food, and a cash bar.
Ticket donations begin at $10.00, although higher levels are available for those wishing to contribute more. To purchase tickets, call 487-2073, visit mtu.edu/rozsa, or visit Ticketing Operations at Michigan Tech’s Student Development Complex. Tickets will also be available at the Rozsa Box office the evening of the benefit.
