Sunday concert to benefit Special Olympics

By From page A3 | February 09, 2013

FAIRFIELD — Fresh off the success of its winter concert series, Gordon’s Music and Sound is hosting a fundraiser for the Special Olympics at 7 p.m. Sunday. The venue is at 810 Texas St.

Performers include Sean Ryan, who will be accompanied by Samantha Lee. The two are organizing the event as Ryan participates in the Polar Plunge fundraiser for the Special Olympics. Also performing are Ever Ours, Jamie Havok and Vallejo’s Super Nintenbros, a ska band that performed during the winter concert series.

Ryan and Lee jam together and have mutual musical friends. This will mark the first time they have performed together live.

“It’s going to be a lot of fun,” Lee said of the show.

She said she wants to see more traffic in downtown Fairfield and fears that foot traffic has been affected since the fire at Pepperbelly’s. Both Ryan and Lee grew up in the area.

Ryan got involved with the Special Olympics Polar Plunge through a friend. For the past two years, he’s put on a fundraising show at the Cabin in Elmira.

He and Lee thought it would be great for people who aren’t old enough to drink to see the show. Lee, who works at Gordon’s, looks for acts that will appeal to those who are 14 to 19.

Lee said the show will last between two and two and a half hours. The atmosphere is family friendly, she said.

Gordon’s Music and Sound will kick off its spring summer concert series March 3 with Dustin Dinsmore, The Boos and Global Affront.
