Gemini's 140th Birthday Celebration Concert!
The Ark Coffeehouse

Yes, 140 is not a typo! And this concert is actually on the very date when we each entered the world (12 minutes apart) 70 years ago!
We'll be celebrating with a number of special guests, some of the musicians who have joined us on stage and in the recording studio over the years.
As a gesture of gratitude for all the encouragement and support, we will donate all proceeds from this concert to benefit the Ark, which is where we got our start in the music we've done for more than 45 years!
This will be a concert for grown-ups, so leave the kids with their favorite babysitter and come celebrate with us!

6th Annual Benefit Concert in Honor of Helen’s Memory
Cafe 704, Interfaith Center for Spiritual Growth, 704 Airport Blvd., Ann Arbor MI
Laz played a number of concerts at Cafe 704 over the years, always with his wife Helen, until she passed away in 2012. To honor her memory, and to celebrate her life, Laz is dedicating this yearly concert to her. Proceeds from the evening will be donated to two organizations: one that supports nature preservation, and the other, an emergency shelter for homeless children and their families. Both of these causes were very close to Helen’s heart.
Laz will be joined by a band of special guests, all of whom recorded or performed with Helen. Laz and his guests will sing some of Helen’s songs, as well as original and traditional music in both folk and classical styles.
