April is National Autism Awareness Month


By Klint  Lowry | The Suncoast News

Published: April 11, 2009

TRINITY - Fans of singer-songwriter Randy McAllister know they like his music, just don't expect them to be able to define it.

Even McAllister's Web site, www.randymcallister.com, struggles to categorize his sound.

So, how about going directly to the source? How does McAllister describe his music?

"It's not really genre specific," McAllister said by phone. "It's kind of an amalgam."

OK, so people will just have to come out and hear for themselves as McAllister and his band play an outdoor concert at The Shops of Longleaf, 3104 Town Ave., New Port Richey, at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 16.

April is Autism Awareness Month, and the concert is a fundraiser to buy adaptive playground equipment for children with autism spectrum disorders that will be installed at Longleaf Elementary School.

"It's nice to be able to do our job and help out a good cause," McAllister said, adding that he and his band adapt their shows for the audience on a given night. That's understandable since by all accounts his music is a little bit of everything.

"I grew up in East Texas," McAllister said. With his father being a musician, McAllister was raised surrounded by musical influences that all rubbed off on him to varying degrees.

"There's blues, some honky-tonk, some country," McAllister said. There's also a bit of gospel, some Tex-Mex, a healthy splash of zydeco and even a bit of rock 'n' roll.

McAllister has been called a "master of Americana." His songs run the gamut, touching at times on serious social issues and at other times dwelling on triumphs and tragedies of the heart.

Then there are the times he goes for straight-up, down-home humor.

Georgia Horton, owner of The Town Ground espresso cafe, heard McAllister at the Suwannee Music Festival and thought he'd be perfect for the Town Ground Concert Series, which started earlier this year at the Shops at Longleaf.

While the coffeehouse presents local musicians on a weekly basis, Horton got the idea to hold larger outdoor concerts, about one a month, as community fundraisers.

"The Longleaf community is pretty tight-knit," said Timothy Allen, who has assisted Horton in organizing the concerts. "It's kind of like going back in time."

The shop and the shopping center are concerned about fostering and being part of that old-fashioned sense of community and staging these concerts is part of that commitment, Allen said. A Valentine's Day "Tribute to Johnny Cash" concert collected donations for the Volunteer Way Food Bank in New Port Richey.

In March, local performers Steve Santo, Richie Gidaro and Russ Boyer rocked the stage at a communitywide St. Patrick's Day party to raise funds for Sky Harbor Wildlife Animal Rescue in Hudson.

While admission to the April 16 Randy McAllister concert is free, cash donations will be accepted for the playground equipment, and there will be drawings for prizes donated by the Shops at Longleaf. Tickets for the drawing are $1 each.

The concert will be held in an open field at the intersection of Town Avenue and Starkey Boulevard. Blankets and lawn chairs are recommended.

For more information, call 727-645-6962 or visit www.TownGround.com.

This outdoor concert is in the field at the corner of Starkey Blvd and Town Ave.
So, bring a chair or a blanket... and your dancing shoes!

Help food bank while hearing country greats

Tribute artists performing the songs of Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson will be part of a Valentine's Day fundraiser to benefit the Volunteer Way Food Bank. The "Legends on the Road" concert starts at 7 p.m. Saturday at the grassy field at Starkey Boulevard and Town Avenue. Attendees should bring folding chairs or blankets to sit in the park while enjoying the show, sponsored by Town Ground Espresso Cafe. Everyone should bring a non-perishable food item to donate to the Volunteer Way, and there will be a $1 suggested donation for the music acts. Horse-drawn carriage rides also will be available for $35, with seating for up to four people. For information, visit www.TheVolunteerWay.org or www.TownGround.com.

Many thanks to Dave Smith, The Johnny Cash tribute singer, and his wonderful group that included “Willie Nelson” and “Patsy Cline”… your generosity helped make the first Downtown Longleaf event a true success! We look forward to having Dave Smith back on May 9th, 2009!
