    The first performance by the Juliana Hatfield Three in nearly two decades, the return of The Cavedogs and performances by Craig Finn (The Hold Steady), the legendary Al Kooper and Tanya Donelly and Gail Greenwood of Belly highlight an all-star evening of music and baseball talk at the 15th anniversary Hot Stove Cool Music charity concert, presented by Walmart and Mintz Levin, which will be held at the Paradise Rock Club on Saturday, January 10. The show raises funds for the Foundation To Be Named Later (FTBNL), which supports local non-profits that benefit at-risk youth. Doors open at 7 p.m., and once again, the event will be emceed by actor/comedian/ writer Mike O’Malley.

    VIP tickets, which include a pre-show party featuring artist meet-and-greets and mouthwatering dishes from select Boston-area restaurants, as well as general admission tickets, are now on sale.

    The FTBNL has granted more than $6.5 million to 200 deserving non-profit agencies. FTBNL also supports 46 under-resourced students from the Boston area at four-year colleges around the country.

    Chicago Cubs President of Baseball Operations Theo Epstein and Hall of Fame baseball journalist Peter Gammons host the event and also perform with the Hot Stove All-Stars, featuring Bill Janovitz (Buffalo Tom), Mike Gent (The Figgs), Kay Hanley (Letters To Cleo), Eli “Paperboy” Reed, The Gravel Pit, Will Dailey, Jen Trynin, Phil Aiken, Len Kasper (Chicago Cubs broadcaster) and others. Additional guest stars will be announced at a later date.Hot Stove

    “With Juliana, The Cavedogs, Al Kooper and Craig Finn complementing the already-stellar line-up, this concert is shaping up to be one to remember,” said Gammons. “We’re thankful for the generosity of the amazing musicians, athletes and personalities that continue to donate their time, effort and energy to help raise much needed funds for our area’s disadvantaged youth.”

    The Juliana Hatfield Three will be reforming with the original lineup of Hatfield (guitar, vocals), Todd Philips (drums) and Dean Fisher (bass). Their 1993 album Become What You Are helped influenced a generation of young bands and featured hits “My Sister” and “Spin The Bottle.” The group recently recorded the follow-up release, Whatever, My Love, which will be released February 17, 2015 on American Laundromat Records. A North American Tour is expected to follow in February and March.

    The Cavedogs released two critically-acclaimed albums (Joy Rides For Shut-Ins and Soul Martini) in the early 1990s and have only performed a handful of reunion shows over the past 20 years. Original members Mark Rivers (drums, vocals), Brian Stevens (guitar, vocals) and Todd Spahr (bass, vocals) reunite for HSCM.

    Kooper has performed with the likes of The Rolling Stones, The Who, Jimi Henrix, B.B. King, Alice Cooper and Cream. He is credited with discovering Lynyrd Skynyrd and he produced and performed on their first three albums, which included hits like “Sweet Home Alabama” and “Free Bird.” Kooper has also released more than a dozen solo albums and composed for many successful film soundtracks.

    Finn, who is a graduate of Boston College, and The Hold Steady have released six full albums since 2004, including the last three that have cracked the Top 30 on the US charts (Stay Positive, Heaven Is Whenever, Teeth Dreams), as well as six EPs.

    Since its inception in 2000, Hot Stove Cool Music events have raised $6.5 million for Theo and Paul Epstein’s FTBNL. Proceeds benefit the Foundation’s Peter Gammons College Scholarship fund and non-profit beneficiaries including BELL (Building Educated Leaders for Life), Citizen Schools, City Year Boston, The Home for Little Wanderers, Horizons for Homeless Children, Roxbury Youthworks, Steps to Success and West End House Boys & Girls Club.

    Hot Stove Cool Music is sponsored by Mintz Levin, Ipswitch, Walmart, RISO, Comcast, A&G, Elevate Communications, Jam Spot, Harpoon Brewery, Hotel Commonwealth, KPMG and Rodney Strong.
