Tom Foster was part of the Cleveland music scene for over 50 years. He played lead guitar and pedal steel guitar for many bands in Cleveland, Tulsa Oklahoma and Austin Texas over the years. He was a founding member of the Cleveland based country alternative rock band Eli Radish from 1968-1973 and was part of the Ted Riser band for close to 20 years. Recently, he played with Mary Taylor-Brooks, The One-Eyed Jacks, The Dagg Nabbitt Country Band and the Girls. He also recorded with David Allen Coe and has played with various members of Grateful Fred and Abbey Rodeo at local events. Please join us at this event to celebrate his life with many of the fantastic musicians that he so loved playing with.

Abbey Rodeo
Abbey Rodeo
For over 15 years Abbey Rodeo has been one of the area’s most popular cover bands, and judging from record crowds at the recent Mentor Rocks concert series and their consistent high ranking in many online contests as one of the best and most popular bands in Cleveland, the sky is truly the limit for Abbey Rodeo.

Fronted by a solid lineup of longtime area musicians including Verne McClelland, Chris Butcher, Bob Yochum, P.J. Philips, Chuck Citraro and Jim Bonfanti, a founding member of the legendary classic rock band Raspberries and a Choir member, (the headliners of this concert), Abbey Rodeo will surely not disappoint with its focus on ‘60’s, and ‘70’s rock classics.
