LEWISBURG, WV (LOOTPRESS) – The Rhema Christian Center will be hosting Richmond rock act Dens for a fundraiser concert event on June 18, 2022 in support of the N.O.A.H. Foundation.
Organized by Greenbrier County Deputy S.L. Morris, the free live event will be accepting donations to support the N.O.A.H. (Now Our Angels are in Heaven) Foundation and their mission.
“The N.O.A.H. Foundation was established in 2013 and we help families who have lost a child,” says Jennifer Richmond, board president and co-founder of N.O.A.H. “This includes miscarriage and stillbirth. We do this by helping fund headstones, providing grief packages, support groups, [and] memorial events, among other things.”
A chance encounter between Deputy Morris and the members of Dens set the stage for the upcoming event, as the band were more than happy to get behind the cause of the foundation.
“Unfortunatey in our culture, child loss – whether it be infant loss, or especially miscarriage – has become something you just don’t talk about or you just don’t know how to talk about,” says vocalist/guitarist Shaun Hypes, emphasing the importance of support for those who have experienced this type of unimaginable loss. “It can leave those who experience these tragedies feeling terribly alone, unsupported, like no one understands how [they] feel.”
Hypes asserts that, despite how difficult it can be to talk about these situations, doing all that you can to make sure those around you feel loved and supported is of the utmost importance. “More often than not, all we need to do is listen, love, serve, and support. This is why I really like what N.O.A.H. is doing. Not only are they a refuge for resources and support, but they are raising awareness and educating the public as well.”
The band, whose latest album Taming Tongues was released in 2020 on Facedown Records, could perhaps be best described as having a hard rock sound. But the group’s style incorporates a litany of elements from various sub-genres including indie, alternative, and metalcore.
“We would love for people of all ages to come out to the event on the 18th,” Hypes says of the upcoming show, which will give attendees an opportunity to learn more about the N.O.A.H. Foundation and what it is they do. “It’s an awesome, family friendly space. We’ll be doing music from our last record Taming Tongues. We’d love for you and your family to come hang out and have fun with us June 18th, 6pm at Rhema Christian Center in Lewisburg.”
