Press release from Beru Revue:

About Project HOME:
Since 1989, Project H.O.M.E. has helped more than 7,000 people break the cycle of homelessness and poverty by providing a continuum of care that includes street outreach, supportive housing and comprehensive services that focus on health care, education and employment. We also work to prevent homelessness and poverty through comprehensive neighborhood revitalization in North Philadelphia. These efforts include the renovation of vacant or deteriorated houses which are then sold to first-time homebuyers, economic reinvestment along the Ridge Avenue Corridor, greening of vacant lots, adult and youth education and enrichment programs at the Honickman Learning Center and Comcast Technology Labs and community-based health care services. For more information go to www.projecthome.org.

Beru Revue Bio
This is Beru Revue’s Thirteenth Christmas Benefit! Reinstituted in 2007, the BR Christmas Benefit has generated tens of thousands of dollars to assist agencies who help the homeless in Philadelphia. In the 1980s, Beru Revue enjoyed enormous popularity in the Philadelphia area. Vaudevillian front man Bob Beru led the rock sextet through costumed vignettes that, while sometimes politically incorrect, were always inclusive and often interactive. Subjects of religion, booze, death, and Dickensian social consciousness were all served up with a double dose of silliness and laser-like dueling guitars. Bolstered by regional radio hits, “Hoods A Go-Go” (On the Wall), “I Got A Job”, and “Moon River”, “ Beru Revue was a rolling party of excess punctuated by outlandish promotional stunts like ”Sleep with the Band” and autographed hot dogs. Featuring the soaring guitars of Greg Davis and Mark Julian Teague, original Dave’s bassist Jerry Getz, drummer Tommy Pinto and the redoubtable Buzz Barkley on keyboards, Beru Revue is excited to tap into the band’s theatrical roots and perform old and new songs in true Beruvian form. What a joy it is to whoop it up, Shall we? Whoop! Whoop! Whoop!
