Christmas at the Falcon benefit to help wildfire victims


Looking for an excuse to go out on the evening of the Winter Solstice? The Falcon has just the ticket for you – and it’s all for a good cause. In what is becoming an annual tradition, the Marlboro club will host a benefit concert, this year directing donations to the California Community Foundation’s fund for Southern California Wildfire Relief.

Your emcee for the event will be Brian Collazo, who usually performs under the stage name BSKi. He’ll be bringing together his own clan as the Collazo Family Singers. Other featured performers include Tony DiPaolo, Patrick W. Firth, Otoniel Vargas, Greg Novick & Anthony Almonte Leon. They will be joined by Akie Bermiss, Cory Dandridge, Natalie Forteza, Robbie Gil, Caleb Hawley, Zach Jones, Paul Loren, Greg Mayo, Joey Ray, Martin Rivas, Hallie Seltzer, Evan Watson and probably more musicians not yet announced.

The venue opens at 5:30 p.m. on Friday, December 21, with music starting up at 8 p.m. Admission is by donation, preferably un-Scroogelike. To check out BSKi’s oeuvre, visit To learn more about the charitable beneficiary, visit
