Sun City West musicians perform to raise donations

‘FlashDrive’ driveway shoes benefit food banks

Sun City West musicians dubbed “FlashDrive” for their impromptu appearances raised donations for the Valley View Community Food Bank, 10771 W. Peoria Ave., Sun City, and St. Mary’s Food Bank in Phoenix.

The group of professional performers living in the same neighborhood came together on Via Montoya Street to host recent driveway concerts for residents who watched from safe social distancing.

Band members Tony Miller on guitar and banjo, Ellie Chaffee on vocals, Shoeless Dan Reed on trumpet, Donna Bytwork on keyboard, and Clark Chaffee on bass each perform regularly with other groups and ensembles throughout the Valley.

Contributions from audience members went directly to the Valley View Food Bank (www.feedingaz.org) and to St. Mary’s Food Bank (www.firstfoodbank.org).

The two driveway concerts raised $50 for St. Mary’s and $200 to Valley View.
