Musicians Health Awareness Program, on Saturday, Nov. 9, from 6 p.m. to 1 a.m., and Sunday, November 10, from 2 p.m. to midnight. The two-day concert fundraiser will take place at The Ocean Mist, 895 Matunuck Beach Rd., Wakefield, RI. Admission is $20.00 per day or $35.00 for a weekend ticket. Tickets can be purchased at or at the door. Ken Lyon, a 2012 inductee to the Rhode Island Music Hall of Fame, will perform a solo set of acoustic blues on Sunday.

Turn charity event on Wednesday, March 11, 2009. Christine Hochkeppel for The Boston Globe Roomful of Blues, 2012 inductees to the Rhode Island Music Hall of Fame, will be a featured performer on Sunday. Roomful was the first band to support Tune In & Tune Up as they donated more than $2,000 from their 45th anniversary CD release held at the Ocean Mist in March. Ocean Mist owner Kevin Finnegan was so impressed by the musicians health initiative idea that he proposed a two-day concert event later in the year featuring more bands. The result is The Unity Concerts where 100% of all proceeds will go to the Tune In & Tune Up R.I. Musicians Health Awareness Program. Below is Steve Smith of Steve Smith and the Nakeds, 2013 inductees to the Rhode Island Music Hall of Fame, who will perform on Sunday. (group shot also available)
