Popular locally in the late ‘90s and early ’00s, the Cleveland cover band No Matter What has just announced it will reunite for a special show at House of Blues on Saturday, Jan. 13.

The band, which features singer Jen Farley, singer-guitarist Tom Tonkli, guitarist Joe Del Re, bassist Pete Scorzino and drummer Bob Horwatt, last played for an Autism Speaks benefit in 2013. The House of Blues show will benefit the Greater Cleveland Food Bank, and Lee Weigman will play bass in place of Scorzino for the show.

"It's so important to provide affordable, reliable, healthy food to all people in the area, and that's exactly what the Greater Cleveland Food Bank does,” says Del Re in a press release announcing the show.

Farley will also bring her alt-pop trio Gin, Chocolate and Bottle Rockets to town. The House of Blues gig will mark that group’s first show in Cleveland since forming in 2014.

"I'm very excited to return to Cleveland for a special night with friends while giving back to the community,” she says. “Cleveland will always be home.”

Tickets for the all-ages show are $15 and available through Ticketmaster. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the show begins at 7 p.m. The local alt-country act Dan McCoy and the Standing 8s will share the bill as well.
