Plant Riverside District’s Electric Moon Skytop Lounge recentlyh announced the expansion of its successful free live music series “Moon Deck LIVE at Electric Moon” from bimonthly to weekly performances. Starting on Sept. 2, live performances will take place every Thursday from 8 to 11 p.m. on the rooftop deck at Electric Moon overlooking the Savannah River.
All Moon Deck LIVE concerts are free and open to the public, and a portion of the proceeds from drink sales will benefit a different local nonprofit organization each month.
For the month of September, The Kessler Collection will donate a portion of the proceeds from drink sales to the Treutlen House in Rincon, Ga., a community-based group home for boys up to 21 years of age who are estranged from their families due to neglect, abuse or abandonment.
Originally founded in 2000, Treutlen House works with the Department of Family and Children Services to provide individual and group counseling as well as education services to meet the needs of each child.
“Plant Riverside District is truly Savannah’s Entertainment District, so we’re always looking for innovative ways to feature our region’s many talented musicians while giving back to the community,” said Tyler Gray, Director of Entertainment at JW Marriott Savannah Plant Riverside District. “This new weekly format of our popular Moon Deck LIVE at Electric Moon concert series is the perfect way to entertain our guests while supporting local nonprofits.”
