Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email firstname.lastname@example.org so we can update it immediately.
Eli Talley was a talented musician and beloved student at School of Rock Philadelphia. Originally from Arkansa, Eli and his parents lived in Philadelphia for several years so he could receive treatment for Neuroblastoma (a form of pediatric cancer) at CHOP. Music, both listening and performing, was an integral part of Eli's coping with a chronic and debilitating illness.
After Eli's passing in October of 2019, his parents created the Eli Talley Foundation in his honor. The Eli Talley Foundation is a non-profit organziation whose mission is to positively impact the lives of children with cancer through the gift of music, help fund important research, and assist families on their journey through childhood cancer.
Six bands will perform throughout the afternoon. The musicians playing in this event all have a connection to Eli, either as a band mate, an instructor, friend or as a fellow student who was inspired by his talent, skill, and story. Headlining the concert will be the acclaimed Philly alt-rock band, Alright Junior whose vocalist and guitar player, Jace Miller, had a close and personal relationship with Eli and his parents.
The concert event will be held at Love City Brewing, 1023 Hamilton Street, Philadelphia,
