Fernando, Trujillo and Edna Vazquez -Benefit For Virginia Garcia Memorial Medical Clinic

Fernando Band, Trujillo and Edna Vazquez will be performing a concert on Feb 1st 2018 at The Mississippi Studios to raise money for The Virginia Garcia Memorial Medical Clinic. All three artist are donating their services so that 100% proceeds can go to the clinic. Virginia Garcia Memorial Health Center is a nonprofit community health center serving the communities of Washington and Yamhill Counties, with a special emphasis on serving migrant and seasonal farmworkers.  They were founded in 1975.  That summer, six-year old Virginia Garcia and her farm worker parents traveled from their home in Mission, Texas to California and Oregon to work in the fields. Along the way Virginia cut her foot, and by the time they reached Oregon, it had become infected. Due to economic, language and cultural barriers to health care, Virginia died from what should have been an easily treatable wound.

Moved to action by Virginia’s unnecessary death, the community quickly rallied together to open the first Virginia Garcia Memorial Health Center in a three-car garage, determined to prevent similar tragedies from occurring.

Today, Virginia Garcia provides healthcare services to more than 45,000 patients a year in Washington and Yamhill Counties at our five primary care clinics and pharmacies, five dental offices, six school-based health centers and women’s clinic. They provide outreach to schools, community health fairs and to migrant and seasonal farm workers at local camps and commercial nurseries through their mobile clinic.  They don’t turn anyone away if they don’t have money.

 

This benefit concert is an opportunity to raise awareness and funds for Virginia Garcia in support of their mission to provide great health care to those who need it most.  Please help us spread the word of this concert and please come down to the show on Feb 1st to show your support.

NEW ALBUM

Leave The Radio On (2015)

3 years in the making, Leave The Radio On features a virtual who’s who of Portland’s finest musicians, including Peter Buck and Scott McCaughey as well as members of M.Ward, Elliott Smith, Richmond Fontaine and The Delines. This is a new chapter in Viciconte’s ever-evolving musical trajectory, a career marked by creative integrity and an almost painful honesty which attracts fans from high and low that still believe in the redemptive power of rock and roll. And ‘that voice’.

Press Quote

“Leave The Radio On is as original an album since the concept of records themselves. Blazing a cacaphony of sound and following no blueprint, a bonafide breath of fresh air in a roots music scene that sees way too many impressionist and not enough artist. Viciconte leaves all the blood in the water, enticing the sharks with their constant need to bite on a new edge or sound. By the time the press is done with this record there will be more than a few biters, and rightfully so.”
