Last week, we brought you exclusive video from the rehearsal space of Turnover Time, the band of Medical Center employees formed to raise money for David Song‘s relief efforts with Medical Aid for Children in Latin America. The band’s big debut took place at the Lend an Ear fundraiser Saturday night at the University of Chicago International House, and by all accounts, it was a roaring success. The event raised nearly $25,000 for the annual trips led by Song to the Dominican Republic to reconstruct ears and repair cleft palates, with an additional $17,000 donated via the MACLA website (where you can still make a donation). In exchange for their philanthropy, the standing-room-only crowd at the fundraiser was treated to two sets of music from Turnover Time, excerpts of which appear below. Enjoy the tunes!
Turnover Time is Shahab Akhter (drums), John Alverdy (keys), James Anderson (vocals), Kevin Johnson (vocals), Jeff Matthews (guitar), Joan Matthews (bass), Jono Matthews (guitar), Sarah Pae (vocals), Nikki Phillips (vocals).
