Celebrate a local group assisting Savannahians in need with an evening of live music.
Inspired by the deep, enriching bond that can exist between a human and a horse, Hoofs 4 Healing works with inner city children, veterans, active military personnel, and folks with special needs, cognitive disabilities and emotional disabilities to enjoy equine-assisted activities and therapies. In a safe, diverse environment, instructors teach riding and showmanship and offer specific treatments for physical limb damage, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and PTSD.
Local band Guns4Hire features Roger Bird on guitar and vocals, Wendell Brown on drums, Fred Hodges on guitar and vocals, and John Neal on bass. Its dedicated members were quite active in the music scene in the ‘80s; after developing careers and families for 25 or so years, the boys are back, playing hits from The Rolling Stones, The Black Crowes, Bob Marley, The Black Keys, and more.
Chris Carusos and Leslie Carter are Wild Wisteria. Carusos has been playing guitar for 40 years, touring with the likes of Johnny Winter, Rick Derringer, Tommy James, and more. Carter is a native Savannahian who has been singing professionally for six years. Together, they spin an up-tempo brand of pop/country/rock with a distinctly Southern lilt.
