Food For Free hosted our first ever Winter Benefit Concert on January 18th, featuring Vance Gilbert, who wowed us with his beautiful voice, guitar, and songwriting, his comedic performance style, and his ability to sing one note forever (!). Turns out that Vance's musical superpower was matched by our own Dann Friedman, who seems to be able to hold one note forever on his saxophone. Dann added soulful sax solos to several of Vance's tunes, and the two went toe-to-toe to see who could hold one note the longest (see the video above!) The evening also included a delicious butternut squash soup, made by JJ Gonson of Cuisine En Locale, from organic squashes donated by Plato's Harvest Organic Farm. Thanks to everyone who joined us for our Winter Benefit Concert! The evening was a lot of fun, and also raised funds for both Food For Free and the St. Paul AME Food Pantry, one of Food For Free's recipient agencies. We hope to see you at our next event!
