Darius Rucker Teams With Musicians On Call
February 22, 2010 at 11:56 AM (PT)
CAPITOL/NASHVILLE artist DARIUS RUCKER has joined the efforts of MUSICIANS ON CALL, a nonprofit dedicated to bringing live and recorded music to the beside of patients in healthcare facilities. On WEDNESDAY (2/24) DARIUS will visit the latest MOC participating facility, TENNESSEE VALLEY HEALTHCARE SYSTEM’s VA hospital.
DARIUS will also perform at the HARD ROCK CAFÉ in NASHVILLE on MARCH 30th at 8p (CT) with ARISTA/NASHVILLE group JYPSI. The performance will kick off the HARD ROCK’s month-long MARCH ON STAGE campaign benefitting MOC. Tickets for the event can be purchased at ticketalternative.com and are $25-$125.
RUCKER said: “I think the MUSICIANS ON CALL initiative is important because it’s one-on-one contact with patients whose health and recovery can directly be affected by one person’s time and attention. Hospitals like the VA are so incredible for recognizing this benefit and incorporating it into their treatment to break up the monotony and improve each patient’s quality of life.”
