Irish Hoolie Benefit

By: Jerry Anderson III

Date Posted: 1999-07-17

People have always enjoyed good musical entertainment, be it rock, pop, country, jazz, or blues. Good music is emotionally soothing and can speak to the soul when presented in the right capacity. Such will be the case for Okinawa’s first “Irish Hoolie Benefit.” The brainchild of Martin McEntire, manager of Morrigan’s, a club on B.C. Street, to help provide financial support to deserving American’s in a financial crisis.

In this case the proceeds will go to help cover medical expenses incurred by civilian Dave Allen from a severe spinal surgery. “Allen is a reporter for Stars & Stripes newspaper and his job did not cover all of his medical expenses so he’s is in need of financial assistance” explained McEntire from his telephone. McEntire also added “this will be the first of many money raising benefits to help out those less fortunate.” The event will take place July 31st at Morrigan’s located on B.C. Street from 5pm-8pm. Tickets for the “Irish Hoolie Benefit” are 4,000 yen in advanced and 5,000 yen at the door and include all you can eat and drink. In addition, only 300 tickets will be sold, giving attendees a fair chance at winning the scheduled $500 raffle drawing.

Heading the extravaganza will be popular local blues man Dave Ralston and his band. If you have never seen Ralston and his Delta Mississippi influenced band perform, you are in for a treat. A few month’s ago I caught the blues man and his band at Sauce Barbecue Restaurant in Hamby Town serving up an ample dose of unpolished blues, complete with an harmonica player that would of made blues legend John Hooker proud. The Okinawa Highlanders and other prominent local musicians are also scheduled to perform. With entertainment like this and the cause it will benefit you can be certain tickets will go quickly.

For tickets or more information, contact Martin McEntire at 098-934-7778.
