Non-profit charity organization Save the Children partnered with DCL Media to arrange the Hope for Haiti benefit concert held Feb. 5.

The concert boasted some big-name musicians: Bacon Brothers, featuring Kevin Bacon as front-man; 2010 Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame nominee Darlene Love; Tabitha Fair, who performed at President Obama’s inauguration; Patty Smyth, former lead singer of ‘80s rock band Scandal; Pete Francis; and the Bev Leslies.

The artists donated their time and the Canal Room, a club in Tribeca, donated the space. With ticket prices starting at $20 and a table set up for additional donations, and attendance at an estimated 250, event organizers agreed it was “a success.”

“The energy in the room was amazing. They had so much fun,” said Deana Concilio-Lenz, founder and president of DCL production company. “There were accountants, doctors, younger people … It was a great cross-section of New York who came to show their support.”
