JUNGLE JAM TO ROAR INTO HOB FOR WORTHY CAUSE
Local Bands Star in Benefit for Bone Marrow Disease Research
Jungle Jam, a rocking benefit for bone marrow disease research, comes to Cleveland’s House of Blues (HOB) on Friday, October 17, 2008. Several well-known local bands will play between 6:30 p.m. and midnight.
Heart & Soul, Blues de Ville, Eclyptic, Horizontal Party and Rusnak Jarrett Jazz will share their unique sounds on the HOB stages. In addition to live music, Jungle Jam will feature a silent auction and special guest appearances. The ticket price includes hors d’oeuvres and drinks.
Proceeds from this unique event will benefit research for bone marrow diseases being conducted at Cleveland Clinic by Dr. Jaroslaw Maciejewski, one of the world’s foremost specialists. Bone marrow diseases are non-contagious, rare and potentially fatal illnesses in which blood production in the marrow is disrupted. Complications can arise, including the inability of blood to clot and susceptibility to infections. Right now, the only cure is a bone marrow transplant.
Jungle Jam was created by Jeff and Sherri Kitzberger of Cleveland Heights, whose 8-year-old daughter, Annalyse, was diagnosed with two bone marrow diseases in 2005.
Jungle Jam promises to be an upbeat, fun-filled event for a worthy cause. Tickets start at $125 and are available now and at the door. For ticket information, call 216-297-9062 or visit www.makeithappen4bmd.org.

“I worked with Pete often…years ago,” said Jerry Bruno. “It must have been fate when he walked back into the office last year. He immediately became our go-to fill-in for many of our bands, and then when we needed him most he was able to step right into this key position. Of course we all miss Chris, but we’re all thrilled to have Pete in the Orchestra.”As a keyboardist, producer, composer and recording engineer, Pete Tokar has been an active member of the areas music scene for over 25 years. As well as performing with numerous area groups, composing soundtracks and jingles, Pete has a long and distinguished discography in the recording industry. He has received several gold and platinum record awards and performed, engineered and mixed the 2008 Grammy Award winning track “In My Songs” by the late Gerald Levert.
Pete has also worked with artists such as Eddie Levert and The O’Jays, The Rude Boyz, Men At Large, Jim Brickman, The Neville Brothers, REO Speedwagon, 3LW (Disney’s Cheetah Girls), Teddy Pendergrass, Anita Baker, The Winans, Tamia, Michael Stanley, and Humble Pie drummer Jerry Shirley.
In addition to his duties as keyboardist with the Jerry Bruno Orchestra, Pete has spent the last few months working on an album for 2007 American Idol runner-up, LaKisha Jones.
