East Hampton - Nona Hendryx, a veteran of the entertainment industry, and an iconic figure of rock along with Spirit Sings LLC proudly presents "HopeStock: Music to Bailout Your Soul on Friday, Sept. 11 at The John Drew Theater/Guild Hall at 8 p.m. This concert series continues to feature an impressive array of emerging and established NYC and International-based artists who come together to inspire audiences with the power of music.

On this day of remembrance, HopeStock will offer the gift of music to John Drew Theater by lifting the spirits of those who wish to celebrate Hope. The HopeStock team is comprised of Joe Giammalvo, Christian John Wikane, Lindsey Wilson, Alex Soady and M.E. Grant who themselves are artists, journalists and marketing talents working with Hendryx to spread the word that hope will always live in live music.

"Artists at every level are invaluable to society. They entertain, inspire, calm and transform humanity. Many artists put into action the virtue of generosity, 'giving is receiving,' sharing their talents without compensation. Without recognizing and supporting the economic welfare of the giver, the artist, we all lose. Take a moment to imagine a world without music, dancing, singing, paintings, pictures or books in any form," says Hendryx.

U.K. singer/songwriter Bobby Long will also appear.

HopeStock: Music to Bailout Your Soul unites a unique fusion of talent that will use the wonderful art of musical expression to bring hope and harmony to the listening audience. This stellar line-up of performing artists includes critically acclaimed singer-songwriter Mary McBride, Reuben Butchart (former pianist of Antony & the Jonsons), acoustic soul troubadour Adam Falcon, and award-winning contemporary Native American/soul artist Martha Redbone, along with Grammy-nominated indie soul sensation Maiysha, melodious UK singer/songwriter Bobby Long, captivating Canadian baritone Giuseppe Spoletini, beautiful singer/songwriter Beth Arentsen and of course the legendary Nona Hendryx & Her Band of Gypsies who will rhythmically lend their force to the show.
