Eco Friendly Band to Headline Western Reserve Land Conservancy Benefit


The Chicago-based act the Giving Tree Band (pictured), a folky group that sounds a bit like Mumford & Sons, uses instruments handmade from naturally fallen trees and reclaimed woods and recorded an album using nothing but solar energy. That makes it the perfect band to headline EverGreen EverBlue, the nonprofit Western Reserve Land Conservancy’s annual benefit that takes place at 6 p.m. on Aug. 29 at Cleveland’s Rustbelt Reclamation in Tyler Village.

The full benefit includes dinner, valet parking and tours of Rustbelt Reclamation as well as a donation to the Land Conservancy. Those tickets range from $200 to $500. But if you’re like us and you live on subsistence wages, the Land Conservancy offers a special $50 late-night (after 9:30 p.m.) ticket for music lovers that includes an open bar, desserts and dancing. And the Giving Tree will perform at that time too. Tickets can be reserved online at or by calling 440-528-4150.
