Kevin Devine Announces Miracle Of 86 Reunion For Hurricane Sandy Benefit

MiracleOf86

Singer/songwriter Kevin Devine got his start in the band Miracle Of 86. Yesterday, he unveiled their new Twitter account; today, on Facebook and Tumblr, he revealed that they play to do a reunion show on Saturday, January 26, 2013 to benefit victims of Hurricane Sandy. The $20 show will be in Long Island.

The show will be their first in more than eight years, but it may not be their last. In Devine’s own words, “Miracle of 86 will reunite on Saturday, January 26th, 2013 at Full Cup (for one-night only, at least for now) to raise money for victims of Hurricane Sandy.” Maybe with some success, they’ll stick around for a while.

Then again, maybe they’re just decent people who want to raise money for victims. They are New Yorkers, after all. For full information, read the original statement by clicking “Read more”.

Miracle of 86 will reunite on Saturday, January 26th, 2013 at Full Cup (for one-night only, at least for now) to raise money for victims of Hurricane Sandy.

The Full Cup is at 388 Van Duzer St., Staten Island, NY 10304. Tickets will be $2

0 & can be purchased here: http://fullcupsi.eventbrite.com/# 100% of proceeds from this first Miracle of 86 show in over eight years, and first on Staten Island since Christmas 2002, will be split evenly between a Staten Island-centric Sandy recovery organization (to be announced in the coming weeks), and Chris “Cephus” O’Brien & his family.

Chris is a friend to the band and was a staple of the Staten Island music scene in the late 1990s/early 2000s; his apartment (which he shares with his wife & two children) had to be gutted after being destroyed by the storm.

Miracle of 86 thanks you in advance for your support. Can’t wait!

I finished school with a music theory degree. Before I finished school, I was a janitor. You really should apologize to all the janitors you've ever had. You hurt them. Seriously. You did.

But, now that we've cleared that up and you called your high school janitor, know that I quit being a janitor to pursue writing about music. So here I am, and here you are, and hey how are you?
