Was held Thursday, December 5, 2019 • Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts

On Dec. 5, the Broadway veteran and Orlando native treated the audience in the intimate Pugh Theater to an incredible eventing of music and song. Net proceeds from the concert directly benefit our core programs’ efforts to relieve hunger and prevent homelessness among those struggling in Central Florida.


Joined by John Olearchick on piano and Charlie Silva on bass, Gaines dazzled the crowd with a fresh set of Broadway show tunes and classics from the American songbook. Between songs, Gaines reminisced about his father, who passed away this year, and sprinkled in charming anecdotes from his illustrious stage acting career. Following the concert, Gaines joined V.I.P. Patrons and friends upstairs in the Kessler Tier of Dr. Phillips Center for a reception with drinks, photos and lots of good cheer.
