Musicians On Call (MOC) announces Grammy award winner, James Taylor as the headliner for their 5th Annual Benefit Concert & Auction which will take place at the world-famous Hard Rock Cafe New York in Times Square on February 24, 2009. The exclusive V.I.P. event will include a red carpet, with special appearances by artists and celebrities committed to the cause.

As music and philanthropy are at the core of the brand, Hard Rock International has partnered with Musicians on Call for the benefit event, helping the charity to continue its mission of room-to-room hospital performances by both local musicians and national celebrities.

“Musicians On Call’s campaign to bring music straight to the bedsides of patients in hospitals would not be able to continue to expand without the donations made at our annual event.” says Leslie Faerstein, Executive Director Musicians On Call. “It’s an exciting night made even more special by a performance by James Taylor. The impact of this one night has a profound effect throughout the rest of the year improving the health and spirits of thousands of patients one song and one bed at a time.”

The charity auction includes items from some of today’s hottest country stars such as:

  • Two tickets to Rascal Flatts 2009 tour with backstage passes
  • Keith Urban Backstage BBQ Experience
  • Leann Rimes signed memorabilia
  • Signed guitars from Taylor Swift, Rascal Flatts, Brooks & Dunn, Miranda Lambert, John Michael Montgomery, Blake Shelton and more!

The auction began on February 10th and will close March 5, 2009 so there’s still time to bid on your most wanted items, and help out an amazing cause!
