Portland’s music community comes together in support of 10-year old Eva McCoy who underwent an emergency liver transplant Nov. 16th, 2019. Severe complications kept her hospitalized at Seattle Children’s Hospital for almost 3 months. Eva is the younger daughter of guitarist Larry McCoy, manager of Portland Music Company’s Broadway store and long-time guitarist with Rich Layton & Tough Town.
Artists from across Portland’s musical spectrum will come together on behalf of Larry’s daughter for a 5-hour event billed as Honky-Tonk Rock, Rhythm & Blues for Little Eva! Scheduled to appear will be bands: The Strange Tones, The Jumptown Aces, Wes Youssi & The Country Champs, Rich Layton & Tough Town, and the Portland Music Company All-Stars. Special guests sitting in throughout the event will be Rae Gordon, April Brown, Mark Shark, Franco Paletta and more TBA.
All proceeds raised from the admission, donations, silent auction items and raffle tickets will be donated on Eva’s behalf to the Children’s Organ Transplant Organization, a nationwide non-profit that assists children and their families with fundraising for transplant-related costs.
