SOUTH BOSTON, MA – If you know Southie, then you know Capo. You know how packed area bars can get for B’s games, you know the next Dalton & The Sheriff’s show is going to be sold out, and you know Todd Angilly is an absolute legend. That’s why a private concert by both the well-known band and anthem singer as your favorite Bruins player gives you their autograph is an actual dream come true. The best part? You’re doing it for charity.
On what would seem an otherwise random Monday night in March, a line that began in the private event space of Capo’s basement was nearly out the front door – and it wasn’t just for an espresso martini. It’s all in support of Boston Bruins’ wives Naomi Krejci, Taylor Bryce, and Eliska Noskova as they run the Boston Marathon to benefit The Boston Bruins’ Foundation.
Established with the spirit of supporting health, wellness, education and athletics that advocates for children & families, The Boston Bruins Foundation has raised over $30 million for worthy causes to date. “People don’t really even realize just how much the Foundation does,” says Naomi Krejci. Yet with each ticket sold at the door, the Boston community gave. In return, they were thanked with private performances by Dalton & The Sheriffs & Todd Angilly as Brad Marchand, Taylor Hall, AJ Greer, Tomas Nosek, and Jeremy Swayman signed autographs.
A sports fanatics’ dream, the silent auction was stacked with collectibles that would take any man cave to the next level. Signed Gronk photo, NBA Finals Leon Powe autographed Celtics basketball & signed Devin McCourty jersey were just to name a few that sat beside a Pedro Martinez bobblehead that of course also was bearing his signature.
The creative collaboration of music, sports, and decadent drinks was the brainchild of local photographer Drea Catalano of 13 Photography that transformed Capo into an exclusive, intimate club where the childhood dreams of meeting your favorite player could come true.
