Country sensation Brushville will take the Lied Center Main Stage at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln at 9:30 p.m. Nov. 8 highlighting the star-studded dream 62 Foundation annual fundraiser.
Founded by UNL alumnus and Major League Baseball pitcher Joba Chamberlain, dream 62 promotes overall wellness in the communities "we live in and love in" by supporting a variety of charitable causes from providing sporting equipment, food and clothing to underserved populations to cancer research.
Brushville has played some of the most notable events in the country music industry, including the Country Music Festival, Country Fest and Country Thunder. In 2012, the band competed in and won Battle for the Saddle in the national country music capital, Nashville, Tenn. Brushville has shared the stage with some of the biggest names in country music including Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum, Alan Jackson and Brad Paisley. Their debut single, "Bar Star," recently became available for download on iTunes.
"Joba's dream 62 Foundation is supporting so many worthy causes in Nebraska and all over the world, we are thrilled that the Lied Center was selected as the location for this year's event," said Bill Stephan, executive director of the Lied Center for Performing Arts. "Brushville is one of the biggest up-and-coming acts in country music. Their performances are packed with energy and attendees will know that their money is going to a fantastic cause."
The dream 62 Foundation is a Lincoln-based charitable organization founded by Chamberlain and his sister, Tasha Dahlberg. The primary mission of the foundation is to promote overall wellness in all communities, large or small. Inspired by the siblings' courage and determination to overcome adversity, the foundation has initiated many programs that make an impact on countless communities. All programs and events supported by the dream 62 Foundation focus on providing individuals with new experiences regardless of financial status. Since 2011, community programs such as Chamberlain Challenge, Nate's Strikeout Program, Reviving Dreams and the Joba Chamberlain Wheelchair Fencing Program have received support through the dream 62 Foundation.
Tickets for Brushville’s performance are available for $40 at http://www.liedcenter.org, the Lied Box Office, 301 N. 12th St., or by phone at 402-472-4747.
