Platinum selling artist Mat Kearney and two-time Grammy Award winner Tyler Burkum are coming to Columbus to perform an acoustic show to benefit Sam’s Fans! Sam’s Fans is a non-profit organization based in Columbus, Ohio that is dedicated to bringing music and art therapy to seriously ill children and their families. This show is 21+ only and tickets are very limited, so get your tickets today!

ABOUT SAM’S FANS:

Sam's Fans was founded in 2015 by Nikki & Dan McCarthy in memory of their daughter, Samantha Jane McCarthy. At the age of 7, Sam was diagnosed with Fanconi Anemia, an inherited anemia that leads to bone marrow failure. She underwent a bone marrow transplant at 10 years old and spent much of the following fourteen months in the hospital. During those long, arduous days in the hospital, music therapy was one of the few things that brought Sam joy and comfort. It allowed her to better express her emotions, relieved stress, and was often the highlight of her day. She would often sing songs by her and her mom’s favorite artist, Mat Kearney. Sam passed away on October 15, 2009 at the age of 11. 

To honor Sam's life and legacy, her parents founded Sam's Fans to help bring that same peace, comfort and joy to other sick children and their families. The funds they raise help provide musical instruments, craft supplies, and fund part-time therapists in children’s hospitals and camps.

In August of 2017, Sam’s Fans was featured on The TODAY Show as part of TODAY’s “Summer of Yes “series, hosted by Hoda Kotb. During a day of filming music and therapy at Nationwide Children’s Hospital, Sam’s Fans founder Nikki McCarthy was treated to a special surprise visit by Hoda Kotb and a musical performance from Mat Kearney and Tyler Burkum. After that performance, Mat and Tyler promised to return to Columbus to do a full benefit concert for Sam’s Fans.

The New York Times calls it "the best musical of the century." The Washington Post says, "It is the kind of evening that restores your faith in musicals." And Entertainment Weekly says, "Grade A: the funniest musical of all time." Jimmy Fallon of The Tonight Show calls it "Genius. Brilliant. Phenomenal." It's The Book of Mormon, the nine-time Tony Award-winning Best Musical.

This outrageous musical comedy follows the misadventures of a mismatched pair of missionaries, sent halfway across the world to spread the Good Word. Now with standing room only productions in London, on Broadway, and across North America, The Book of Mormon has truly become an international sensation. Contains explicit language.

A comedy of unresolved history that dares to ponder the continuing and far-reaching legacy of American slavery. On the subject of race, Branden Jacobs-Jenkins is our country’s most original and illuminating playwright. An Octoroon (the 2014 OBIE Award for Best New American Play) is his unclassifiable adaptation of an 1859 melodrama about illicit interracial love. It is, by turns, riotously funny, gut-wrenchingly disturbing, and always brave. It might just be the most challenging drama that Available Light has ever brought to the stage. “I don’t think it’s too much of a spoiler to reveal that this show ends — spectacularly and hauntingly — with all of us in the dark. As Mr. Jacobs-Jenkins sees it, that’s still the state of the nation.” – NY Times

Written by Branden Jacob-Jenkins. Directed by Matt Slaybaugh
