Deen Castronovo’s project outside of Journey, E.R.M.C., plays for charity

E.R.M.C. is managed by BenchMark Artist Management

Sometimes, even the drummer for Journey gets bored.

That gentleman — who goes by the name of Deen Castronovo and lives in Keizer — needed something to fill his time since he got off tour, so E.R.M.C. was born. The group — which also includes music luminaries such as Bob Esh on bass and vocals, Brian Phyll Miller on vocals and Jesse Ruggles on guitar and vocals — will be playing all kinds of classic rock — tonight (10.29.09).

There may be some Journey snuck in there, Castronovo said, though they don’t have a keyboardist, which complicates things.

Even better, 25 percent of the proceeds will be donated to area nonprofits.

“Union Gospel Mission and the Boys and Girls’ Club … we’re just gonna pick one every week that we play and give it to them,” Castronovo said.

This is the first of several shows scheduled for E.R.M.C., including a Nov. 21 performance at South Liberty Bar and Grill, and a to-be-announced performance at IKE Box.

The show is for those 21 and older. For more information, call (503) 581-5278.
