Are you referring to only one band?
If so , yes Kansas def.
If not - consider the crowd that will be present - do they want to hear Dio or Cinderella ( I would but . . .) Are they an older crowd - younger?
I would go in-between and choose neutral bands like:
April Wine, Kansas , Nazareth, Eddie Money.
Of course - if it is a teen thing - or mid adult then def go for:
Dio, Dokken, Molly Hatchet . . .
Think of the audience - think of who will pay for this - who will be attending - what will draw the crowd you will be serving?
Did a HUGE benefit like this once - my crowd was mostly Irish - so the music was easy . . . wanted Ozzy but geez couldnt see him with bagpipes lol
Let me know if you have any other questions - been there - was a real pain in the . . . (edited by moderator) ok I put that there myself.
Seriously, did the tickets, flyers, food, band, hall, auctions, raffles, split-club, alcohol, and all the donated prizes - baskets and items for the auctions to generate more money for the cause.
Hope this helped.
