Performing at the concert were musicians Robben Ford, Joe Bonamassa, Jimmy Vivino, John Jorgenson, Freebo, Jason Sinay, Jimmy Vivino, Tony Galla, Kirk Fletcher, Grant Geissman, Jimmy Earl, Del Casher and Richie Sambora with Orianthi.

The benefit concert donated 100% of the event's proceeds to The Midnight Mission. The Midnight Mission is Southern California’s premier homeless center. The organization is celebrating a full century of offering emergency services, drug and alcohol recovery and transitional programs for homeless men, women and children in the Los Angeles area.

Sambora was honored at the 12th Annual Golden Heart Awards for his philanthropic work with The Midnight Mission in 2012.

I spoked with Sambora and Orianthi before the event. Click on the video link to hear what they had to say about the Midnight Mission. The two were a perfect match together on stage with Orianthi joining Sambora and his band for his set which included songs from Bon Jovi and his solo albums. The two already performed together when Sambora performed on the Alice Cooper and friends benefit concert on New Year's Eve in Hawaii. Orianthi is a guitarist in Alice Cooper's band. Sambora shared with me that he and Orianthi are set to perform together again with dates to be announced shortly.
