Stoddard Performs at Jamboree

Singer-songwriter Shawn Stoddard along with bass guitarist Ross Belovich were among several area musicians who donated their time and talent on Saturday, September 29 at the jamboree for Donna Raymon, a stroke victim, that was held on Ghizes in Ogdensburg.

"It was great to see some many people come out and support Donna and her family," said Stoddard. "I was very honored for the invite to play and even more honored to meet Donna in person. She is truly an amazing person."

Activities for the day included food, raffles, an auction, and live music from Shawn Stoddard, Ross Belovich, Paparazzi Scandal, Five Quarter and Dave Wells. Sound was provided by
Todd Brown and Dave Flight. All proceeds raised will help cover medical expenses.

Stoddard, who is currently ranked #1 on the Alternative/Pop-Rock Charts at ReverbNation for Ogdensburg played songs from his debut album Further Down that Road, as well as a few cover songs. "Donna's son John told me that All Summer Long by Kid Rock was one of her favorites," said Stoddard. "So Ross and I decided to it would be fun to surprise Donna with that song."
