On June 21, Cubs president of baseball operations Theo Epstein will test out his vocal chords as he joins Hall of Fame baseball writer Peter Gammons and Cubs broadcaster Len Kasper for the second annual Hot Stove Cool Music Chicago benefit concert, presented by KTR Capital Partners. The concert, which will be held at Metro in Chicago, will benefit Chicago Cubs charities as well as Epstein's Foundation To Be Named Later.

Epstein, Gammons, and Kasper won't be the only ones singing at the event. They will be accompanied with performances by Poi Dog Pondering, Parkington Sisters, Brede Baldwin, and Kay Hanley.

Gammons couldn't be more thrilled with the support this concert is receiving.

“I am grateful to the musicians, sponsors and Chicago fans that help make it possible to continue to raise money for disadvantaged youth through Hot Stove Cool Music,” Gammons said. “Particularly in this day and age with budget cuts to charitable and community-focused programs, we focus on making sure underprivileged kids have the resources they need to experience fulfilling lives, and this event helps significantly with that effort.”

There will also be live and silent auctions going on that will include signed sports memorabilia.

Tickets are available for the public starting this Saturday, May 18, at 12 pm at www.metrochicago.com and the Metro Box Office. General admission is $50 and VIP tickets can be purchased at www.ftbnl.org.
