concert/auction to benefit Dave Clark Five lead singer . . .
A Concert to Benefit Mike Smith
Tuesday, August 2
B.B King's, NYC

A benefit and tribute concert will be held for Mike Smith - lead singer and keyboard player of The Dave Clark Five - on Tuesday, August 2, 2005 at B. B. Kings' Blues Club and Grill in New York City. The event is being produced by Paul Shaffer, Margo Lewis and Eric Gardner.

The event will be hosted by Paul Shaffer of "Late Show with David Letterman," and will feature performances by The Zombies, Denny Laine, Billy J. Kramer, The Fab Faux and, for the first time in 35 years, the reunion of Peter & Gordon.

Proceeds from the concert will benefit Smith, who is a tetraplegic (paralyzed below the ribcage with limited use of his upper body) after suffering an accident in his home in September, 2003; Mike has been hospitalized ever since.
