Rock classics to fill club for the kids

December 01, 2010 - The sounds and energy of live classic rock returns to Independence Township, Dec. 5, for a good cause.

Oakland County Sportsmen's Club hosts its 11th annual Toys for Tots Rock n' Roll Toy Drive, 1-9 p.m., Sunday.

"We're just going to go in there and do our thing again. It's something we look forward to big time every year," said Jim Hamblin, drummer with Urban Nomads. "It's just a feel good situation and you like doing it. It's nice and close by with a lot of people you know."

Also playing are Phil Treais Group, Targus, Skee Brothers, Charlie Allen Martin with 2XL, Mule Drive, Donde, Detroit Groove Kings, and Taddy Porter. John O'Leary of WCSX 94.7 will be the MC. A cash bar and food will also be available.

"I've been doing this show for right around nine years, myself and Charlie Martin and it's gotten bigger and better every year," said Devon Stacy. "The groups love to come in there and play."

Stacy said they've also had a lot of help from Gary at Boomers, who donates use his PA system and helps the bands feel "comfortable with their sound."

Cover charge is $10 per person or a new unwrapped toy of that value. All contributions will go to the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation.

The OCSC is located at 4470 Waterford Road in Independence Township. For more information call Dan Stiff or Salli Petherbridge at 248-623-0444 or email

"The event is growing every year and we hope it continues to do so," Stacy said. "It's a good cause for the kids."
