    This past Wednesday night, local musicians gathered for the 9th Annual Joyce & Bill Toms Thanksgiving Benefit Concert! For the past nine years, Joyce and Bill have organized an evening of great music and fellowship to raise awareness and thousands of dollars in support of local charities serving people in need. This year’s beneficiary was The Down Syndrome Association of Pittsburgh, a group of parents and professionals dedicated to enriching the lives of people with Down syndrome. While our local newscasters were concentrating on “black Friday” sales and our national anchors spewed their particular spin of doom and despair; they failed to capture one of the most important stories of the season – the story of people sharing their gifts and talents to help others! Author Kurt Vonnegut once quipped that his epitaph should read: “The only proof he needed for the existence of God was music.” Indeed, there was plenty of proof at the Hard Rock Café Wednesday night. The Jimmy Adler Band brought the proof; Jill Simmons & Friends brought the proof; Bill Toms & Hard Rain brought the proof!

    Hey mate(s) I came across a live video of your band playing "Had enough of these hard times" in Italy and I was amazed. Great song, great vibe to it. I'm a Swedish 23 y.o musician myself and I appreciate Real music.. Keep up the good work, if you got time, here's my stuff: http://soundcloud.com/thecloseriget Cheers // Adam. // hellqvist.adam@gmail.com
