A Benefit Concert for the Michael Bonanomi Foundation
and Music4Sight@Sweet Relief
feat. Zach Gill and Simon Petty with Ruled By Venus
This year’s the concert will be headlined by Zach Gill! Zach is a multi instrumentalist, singer, songwriter and member of the rock band ALO and Jack Johnson’s band. He also performs regularly as a solo artist. Also appearing will be Simon Petty with Ruled by Venus. Simon, Michael’s dear friend and longtime collaborator, returns to Brighter Sun after an amazing performance last year.
Brighter Sun is The Michael Bonanomi Foundation’s second annual benefit concert. The Michael Bonanomi Foundation was established in memory of Michael Spencer Bonanomi, who was tragically taken from us by a hit and run driver on August 17, 2013. He was only 35 years old. Michael loved all music and believed in the profound positive effect music has on society. The Foundation aims to encourage children and adults to pursue their musical talent, through donations, scholarships and financial assistance to those programs or individuals who demonstrate both a financial need and a commitment to music. In 2016, the Foundation’s goals are to provide financial assistance to Music4Sight@Sweet Relief and to endow a music scholarship at Michael’s alma mater, the University of California, Santa Cruz. The Michael Bonanomi Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit corporation.
