    • Aaron Lewis - In some ways, Staind's triumphant set at "Epicenter 2011" is emblematic of their journey. They were never into press posturing, awards show bullshit, or trying to be something they're not. They write timeless songs like "Eyes Wide Open", "Spleen", "Mudshovel", and "Something to Remind You" and kick teeth in when they hit stage. Isn't that everything a hard rock band should do? Well, they do it better than anyone… - Rick Florino

    Good cause x good friends x good music! That's what Aaron Lewis' upcoming charity event embodies and it's for the kids and supports education! Yes, this is Aaron Lewis, singer of Staind.

    It Takes a Community Foundation (ITAC) and Premier Concerts have named the special guests for the 4th Annual Aaron Lewis & Friends concert, to include Brent Smith and Zach Myers from Shinedown, along with a rare acoustic performance by award-winning rockers Staind, making it an unforgettable show.

    The benefit concert will take place at The Pines Theater at Look Park in Florence, MA on Friday, June 27 at 5:30PM.

    Aaron Lewis and his wife Vanessa founded It Takes A Community Foundation when the State of Massachusetts eliminated funding for the R.H. Conwell School in Worthington, MA. The school had served the children of the hill towns in the area since the 1940s and was one of the only community buildings in tiny Worthington. The school closure was devastating to the entire community.

    Aaron and Vanessa founded ITAC in July 2010 to save the school. The support provided through ITAC provided the bulk of the funding to reopen the public facility as a private community school open to all local students.

    The R.H. Conwell experience demonstrated that rural communities can help themselves if residents work together and have adequate resources. Under the leadership of Aaron and Vanessa Lewis, ITAC now provides funding and guidance to a wide array of organizations that play a vital role in connecting people within rural communities.

    The charity works with local leaders and community organizations that have firsthand knowledge of the needs of their communities. It strives to raise funds and support these community groups who strengthen, engage and enrich the communities they are in, sustain diminishing public services and provide assistance to communities in crisis.

    What can you do to support this cause?

    Tickets are general admission, with prices range from $59-79 plus Ticketmaster service charges. Tickets are on sale and can be purchased online at ticketmaster.com or by calling (800) 745-3000.
