Go enjoy a lot of local Staten Island talent at the Karlus Trapp Got Ripped Off Fun Raiser, September 19, 5 to 9 p.m. at the Flagship Brewery, 30 Minthorne Street in Tompkinsville. Fourteen acts will come out to help Karlus Trapp recover equipment that was recently stolen from a car outside his West Brighton home. Alexa, Leila Hegazy, comedian Pauline Herveaux, singer songwriter Matt Wilson, Queen Tipsy, Byron Kimbrough and Rudy Mwongozi, Joan Caddell Band, Cara Lanzi, Living through Movement Dancers, Jeanine Otis & Larry Marshall, Nanci Richards, and the Tom Cintula’s Buffalo 24 will perform along with many others.
“Staten Island artists who I have played are coming together, giving their time and energy to help me recoup some funds so I can get back on my musical feet,” said Trapp. “When something like this happens, you find out who the angels in the community are.”
Trapp has been playing and teaching guitar on Staten Island for more than 30 years. Some of the people who have helped Trapp at this time include Steve Schwall, who is the energy behind this event and John Castellano at Castellano’s House of Music, who provided temporary equipment for his performances. Tickets are $30 each, including food and open bar, and can be purchased at the door or online at KarlusTrappFunRaiserTix.
