Detroit’s Sponge is rocking acoustic for a good cause. Vinnie Dombroski of Sponge, after surviving another birthday this past week, is putting on a concert that will raise money for the Pope Francis Center, a Detroit homeless shelter. Mike Skill of the Romantics fame and Brian Vander Ark of Verve Pipe will perform.
The concert is Tuesday, Dec. 27 at the Cache Wine & Cocktail Bar in St. Clair Shores. Doors are at 5 p.m. This isn’t the first time Vinnie from Sponge has worked with the Pope Francis center. It’s a cause near and dear to his heart. Pope Francis Center provides services to nearly 200 people experiencing homelessness daily, including meals, showers, laundry, access to doctors, and more. The show includes a meet and greets and a digital recording of the show. Follow Sponge on their Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Spongerocks
As much as the fans love Sponge, Sponge love their fans right back. From the working the crowd hand-slaps, to Vinnie being held up by hands as he ventures into crowd, to bringing half-a-dozen of those fans on stage to sing along. Some bands lose a step over the years. Sponge have re-invented themselves many times. When it comes to a show, the Band still gives there all with favorites- “Plowed,” “Molly,” “Wax Ecstatic,” to later hits like “Treat Me Wrong” and also the fan favorite cover of the “Speed Racer” theme and more. This is a definite Sponge Fan must see concert.
