Jerry Attrick & The Pacemakers will perform a benefit show, "Eat, Drink and Dance So Others Can Eat," for the Ashland Food Project at 9 p.m. Saturday at the Standing Stone Brewing Co.

All proceeds will go toward AFP's operating expenses, including printing and collection bag purchases.

The AFP collects food every two months from residents in Ashland and Talent for local food banks. More than 7 tons of food were received on its monthly collection on Feb. 13.

The next pick-up date for the project is April 10. Proceeds from the musical benefit will cover the few monetary costs of the all-volunteer project. There is a suggested donation of $5-$10 at the door. See www.ashlandfoodproject.com for information.

Jerry Attrick & The Pacemakers features Dennis Freese, woodwinds; Jim Calhoun, bass; Gary Wade, lead guitar; Gabe Young, woodwinds; David Young, guitar; and Tom Stamper, drums. The band plays a diverse mix of dance music that spans the globe, decades and grooves.

Featured will be two young performers: Gabe Young on sax, and Sophie Javna on vocals, who recently performed at the Rogue Valley Blues Festival and the Avalon Bar and Grill.
