The GINA Foundation presents the 9th Annual Squeaky Wheel® Tour from October through November, 2014 Events around the world will unite to make noise and raise public awareness of the alarming number of missing people internationally with hopes of bringing home those waiting to be found.The 9th Annual Squeaky Wheel® Tour at Gypsy Sally’s in Washington, DC on Sunday, October 26, 2014 from 1:30 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. The Squeaky Wheel® Tour is an annual, internationally acclaimed concert series created by the GINA for Missing Persons FOUNDation, which raises awareness for the staggering number of people who vanish every year. The GINA FOUNDation and subsequently the Squeaky Wheel® Tour, was created by musician Jannel Rap in honor of her sister, Gina Bos. Also a musician, Gina mysteriously disappeared from Lincoln, Nebraska 14 years ago on October 17, 2000 after a performance. Her car was found the next day with her guitar in the trunk, but there was no sign of Gina. She has not been seen since. Jannel realized during her attempts to find her own sister that so many families were facing the same hurdles - their loved ones simply vanishing with little or no drama to gain the much-needed, ongoing attention and interest of the media for the disappearance of that person. Jannel had to do something to change that. In 2001, she launched the GINA FOUNDation, which held GINA Concerts and, starting in 2006, the annual Squeaky Wheel® Tour. Through the collective efforts of cooperating nonprofits, law enforcement, artists, audiences, families of the missing and the media that support this much needed work. The Squeaky Wheel® Tour brings awareness to the missing. The public supporting the events are the critical factor that helps to bring the tips in for law enforcement to assist in finding those waiting to be found.

(All donations go to the GINA FOUNDation.) Performers are (in order of appearance) Jannel Rap (the founder of GINA), New Jersey duo Virago, and DC area artists Annette Wasilik, Carey Colvin, David A. Alberding, Michael Sheppard, Ruthie Logsdon & Greg Hardin (Ruthie & The Wranglers), and Patty Reese.

The missing being profiled* at the Gypsy Sally’s show include Norma Avillan (VA), Leann Faulk (MD), Zita Gutierrez (MD), Heather Johnson (MD), Shanea Lockwood (VA), Jerry Plaster (VA), Relisha Rudd (DC), Levi Smith (DC), and Joseph Sweat, Jr. (DC). *NOTE: If any of the missing listed for this show are found before the performance, other missing will be substituted. Please visit the Washington, DC show listing at www.squeakywheeltour.org for up-to-the-minute changes. The Squeaky Wheel® Tour’s effort helps to bridge the gap by partnering with artists and nonprofits world-wide to bring local attention to local missing. Please join us in this effort to help the families. Artists and entertainers that have contributed to GINA/SWT® include, but are not limited to: Maroon 5, Karen Black, Gloria Loring, Little Feat, Barry Zito, Richie McDonald, Los Angeles Sparks Basketball, Meatloaf, Ted Lange, ViRAGO and countless indie artists. Elizabeth Smart, the Utah teen that was abducted in 2002 joined in support of SWT® with her father, Ed Smart. National publications and programs include People Magazine, Inside Edition, The Music Connection Magazine, Geraldo and The Grammy Program. In Canada, the band Conscience has joined the SWT® as well as Canadian Icon Bif Naked and celebrated Cellist Kiki Mizumi. Joy Smith, a Member of Parliament and outspoken advocate in addressing Canada’s role in the trafficking of humans world-wide has been a tour spokesperson along with actresses Tantoo Cardinal and Leah Pinsent. During the events performers spotlight specific missing persons in the event area, giving details of the events leading up to the disappearance. Attendees may take a flyer to post throughout their community. A more extensive list of those waiting to be found in your area is at www.411GINA.org. ###

The Acoustic Guitar Project, Washington DC Concert - 7:30pm
201 F Street NE
Washington, DC 20002
202/558-6900
Price: $10

Come hear ten of DC's finest singer songwriters perform their songs written for this whimsical project:

"One guitar, one week, one song."

A beautiful guitar, custom made for each city's project, is passed from songwriter to songwriter who each have a week to write and upload their song to the AGP website. (www.theacousticguitarproject.com) In this special concert, each performer will play his or her AGP song along with another original. Should be very cool. I understand it's a beautiful venue with good eats and coffee, too.

Songwriters include: Annette Wasilik, Zach Parkman, Suzanne Brindamour, Wendy Laxner, David Potts-Dupre, Lea,  Harris Face, Jules Bland, Rachel Levitan and Andres Salguero.
