Morse Code - An 80s/90s/2000s Benefit Concert for Alex Morse
Morse Code - An 80s/90s/2000s Benefit Concert for Alex Morse
On January 1, 2019, our friend Alex Morse was shot in the head as an innocent bystander in Northwest DC. He is critically injured and will need surgery, rehabilitation time, and lots of medical care. Read more about it here: https://russianmachineneverbreaks.com/2019/01/02/longtime-caps-fan-in-critical-condition-after-being-shot-in-the-head-on-new-years-day/

In addition to being a longtime Washington Capitals fan, Alex is a big fan of music. Join us for a special night of local DC acts featuring Alex's favorite songs of the 80s, 90s and 2000s and led by David Thong and Friends. See special performances by The Stacked Actors, A Tribute To The Foo Fighters; Winosaurus; Derek Huffman; Elizabeth Sullivan; and many more! There will also be a silent auction and raffle with prizes including tickets to future Capitals games and tickets to future shows at Union Stage and Jammin' Java. All proceeds will go to Alex's recovery fund.

Stacked Actors (a tribute to the Foo Fighters)
Stacked Actors is DC's premier tribute to one of the most iconic rock bands of all, the Foo Fighters.

The hometown favorite, grammy award winning Foo Fighters has dominated the charts with hard hitting numbers like "Everlong", "Monkey Wrench", and "Rope" and has known to put on high energy shows.

The Stacked Actors (formed from members of DCs White Ford Bronco, Boss Chiefs and Jeff From Accounting) is the next best thing, capturing all of the raw energy from the Foo Fighters live shows.

Winosaurus is made up of three singers: Doug Roberts, Meghan Melrose-Smith, and Elizabeth Sullivan. Meeting through karaoke, these three local musicians have performed in many groups around the DC area from backyard tents to many of the area’s largest venues.
