An Evening with Chad Smith

(Drummer for the Red Hot Chili Peppers)

Screen Shot 2014-04-29 at 8.36.53 PMThree community groups teamed up to bring an unprecedented event to the Birmingham – Bloomfield community.  Bloomfield Hills native Chad Smith, drummer for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, came back to his roots with a visit to Birmingham and surrounding areas on Monday June 16, 2014.  The Birmingham Historical Museum, Birmingham Community Coalition (BBCC), Axis Music Academy and Axis Music Foundation organized an afternoon and evening with Chad Smith that offered the community three different opportunities to enjoy Smith’s company and talent.

Proceeds from the event went to support the creation of the Joan and Curt Smith Scholarship at Axis Music Foundation, anti-drug and pro-music programs at the BBCC, and the Birmingham Historical Museum.
