Cris Cab headlining Woodystock at Peacock Park

The WoodyFoundation is pleased to announce its inaugural edition of Woodystock, a free benefitconcert scheduled for Saturday, September 21, from 3 to 8:00 pm at Peacock Park in Coconut Grove. Miami’s own, Cris Cab, left, will headline the event along with other musicians to be named later..

Woodystock is a grassroots event for music and art lovers. Along with the concert, local artists and food vendors will round out the event. Proceeds from the concert will benefit The Woody Foundation, a nonprofit organization created to raise funds for the recovery of people with spinal cord injuries. The concert is free; $10 donations are appreciated.

The Woody Foundation, Inc. is a not for profit organization formed in 2011 to raise funds for the recovery of people with spinal cord injuries. The namesake of the foundation, James “Woody” Beckham suffered his spinal cord injury making a rugby tackle in January 2011. His family and friends have bonded together to support Woody by making donations to local charities which help others with similar spinal cord injuries.

Mentored by Pharrell Williams, recording partner of Wyclef Jean, and support act to O.A.R., Matisyahu and Gym Class Heroes, Cris Cab doesn’t take much time off. The reggae-pop star sits on 9 million YouTube views, and his current mixtape project Echo Boom has reached over a quarter million downloads. His last single, Good Girls (Don't Grow on Trees) featuring hip hop heavyweight Big Sean, reached over 185,000 views on YouTube between its debut in September to the month of October. MTV subsequently elected Cris Cab as their "October Push Artist."
