Japan Relief Concert at Lindberg’s on C-Street

318 W. Commercial St.

Wednesday, April 13

5:30 – 10 p.m.

There will be no admission fee, but patrons are encouraged to make a donation which will go to the Springfield Sister Cities Japan Relief Fund.  SSCA has raised more than $44,000 to send as a first installment to Isesaki and looks forward to sending more.

M-Dock Band, one of Springfield’s most popular bands, has traveled to Isesaki to perform at the Isesaki City Festival representing SSCA and will headline the evening with a variety of rock and roll from 1980s to today. Lija Fonner will kick-off the evening with a mix of folk rock music, followed by The Queen City Kats, who perform rockabilly and have also sent a few band members to Springfield’s sister city of Isesaki, Japan.

Isesaki residents raised funds and sent nine Master Gardeners to Springfield to help rebuild the Japanese Stroll Garden at Nathanael Greene/Close Memorial Park following the 2007 ice storm. They also sent funds to Springfield following the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and Hurricane Katrina, entrusting their American counterparts to send the money to where they thought it would do the most good in each case.
