Aleena York & Blue Pluto returns to Roanoke

Posted: Friday, November 13, 2020

Aleena York, one of the area’s most talented new vocalists, will return to perform for the Cottage Event Center’s annual Toys for Tots Holiday Concert on December 4. Backed by her band, Blue Pluto, York will present an evening of holiday favorites in a smooth, swinging style that blends traditional Yuletide standards with a hint of Jazz.

Aleena York, at only 22, began her singing career as part of a family Southern Gospel trio at age nine and has continued performing ever since. Her performing credits include singing at Club Soda, Joseph Decuis, Two EE’s Winery and the Fort Wayne Museum of Art, and the Allen County Republican Party’s recent Reagan Bean Dinner. York is a graduate of the University of Saint Francis with a degree in music technology.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Food available for purchase will be six-inch Subway sandwiches (choice of cold cut combo or turkey) plus chips and a cookie for $6. A cash bar is also available.

Tickets may be purchased by calling (260) 483-3508, or online at cottageeventcenter.com. Tickets are also available at John’s Meat Market in Roanoke.

Toys for Tots will provide gifts for over five hundred Huntington County young people, from infants to teenagers. The organization will be collecting toys until mid-December utilizing drop off boxes at various businesses in the area.
