Filet of Soul Entertainment will host its eight annual Band for Cans Benefit Concert for Christmas Cheer. The event will take place from 5 to 9 p.m. Dec. 10 at the Rockwater Bar and Grill on Emerald Bay Road.

The original Bands for Cans Benefit Concert started in 1994, spearheaded by local musical groups, Filet of Soul, The Manbabbies and Anxiety. Al Marin, who founded the Filet of Soul Band name in 1994, has performed with his musical family members at Bands for Cans for years and continues to help Filet of Soul carry on this Lake Tahoe tradition of musicians helping feed the needy at the annual food raiser concert for Christmas Cheer. Previous concerts have raised and collected more than 2,000 cans of food, which are distributed locally by Christmas Cheer to hundreds of underprivileged people and families throughout the South Shore in time for the holidays.

Band for Cans Benefit Concert groups performing with Filet of Soul include Full Circle, Necrotic Serenade, Sher’s Showstoppers, The Nicki Bell Duo, Marin and Silvers, Alisia and Snow and other special guests. Live music will range from blues to rock ‘n roll, country to Motown and a taste of today’s tune performed by the up and coming local group Necrotic Serenade led by Adam Marin. Certainly a variety of music and entertainment served up for an any age audience.

There will be a grand prize raffle gift courtesy of the Horizon Casino Resort, and as always, in Band for Cans style, a prize for most cans brought. The Rockwater Bar and Grill is a family place, so children are welcome. Admission is $3 plus three cans of food. The Rockwater is also a drop-off location for Christmas Cheer collecting canned and nonperishable food during business hours up until Dec. 10.

On behalf of all the Lake Tahoe musicians who work to make Bands for Cans happen every year, everyone can help by donating foods so the needy in the community can be fed.
