Heart Of The City

Heart of the City: A Celebration of Soul benefits the SIMS Foundation and its 650 client musicians.

Join us for a soulfully elegant evening on February 15 for the SIMS Foundation’s annual benefit concert. Heart of the City: A Celebration of Soul features 70s soul legend Bobby Patterson, Queen Bee Tameca Jones, the gospel-tinged artist Dan Dyer, The Voice’s Nakia, and Daniel James Leopold of Leopold and His Fiction.

Our musical director, Grammy-winner Adrian Quesada’s all-star band is highlighted by Grupo Fantasma Horns and some of Austin’s best musicians. Emceed by the city’s very own soul encyclopedia, Rick “Daddy” McNulty with vinyl mood setting by DJ Mahealani, it is sure to be a glittering night of hip-shaking soul, pretty cocktails, VIP lounge, luxury raffle and other tantalizing surprises. Doors open at 8pm for a Cocktail Hour with music starting at 9pm.

Heart of the City: A Celebration of Soul benefits the SIMS Foundation and its 650 client musicians. Formed to support musicians by providing access to mental health and addiction recovery services, SIMS puts the heart and soul back into musicians. Thank you for keeping Austin music alive!
