About this event
Join Tim Flannery & The Lunatic Fringe for their first appearance at #WawonaGates at the Irish Center. Tim promises an evening of music, storytelling, and good-natured fun, all in the name of The Love Harder Project, which strives to put an end to bullying and violence.
All net gate proceeds benefit The Love Harder Project.
We will comply with any and all Covid requirements for the City of San Francisco for April 30 and will update you with those requirements closer to the date, if necessary.
About The Love Harder Project:
“I’m Tim Flannery, 3-Time World Series Champion 3rd base coach with the San Francisco Giants, MLB Network and NBC Sports Bay Area analyst, and passionate musician and storyteller. Baseball is a game and a lifestyle, but my heart belongs to the Love Harder Project. I consider it my duty to leverage my baseball accolades in an effort to spread love through music and assist wherever possible those who’ve fallen victim to bullying and acts of violence. Thank you for stopping by and please read on as I hope you’ll become as inspired as we are to permeate love and compassion.
Until now, funding for The Love Harder Project has been raised through the efforts of Flannery and his friends in music and baseball. As much as ever, The Love Harder Project message needs to be heard and felt.
Join The Love Harder Tribe in our campaign to love harder, and spread the message that there’s a better way. With your generosity, efforts to prevent violence and assist victims will continue to grow and expand nationally through programs such as The Buddy Bench Project.”
About Tim Flannery:
Throughout his baseball career, Tim Flannery had his guitar in hand. His uncle, Hal Smith – hero of the 1960 World Series with the Pittsburgh Pirates – was one of Flan’s earliest baseball and musical influences. “He was also a songwriter and carried a Gibson J 35 everywhere. I grew up never knowing you couldn’t do both.”
Flan writes songs about his family roots, love, and the surrender that comes when you understand some things are out of your control. He writes about baseball and being on the road, the call of the highway, and the beacon of home. He has an ace band, the Lunatic Fringe, that bring his songs roaring to life in various musical genres like bluegrass, country, and rock.
Flan has three World Series Championship rings as a third-base coach with the San Francisco Giants, and he has released 14 albums of original music over the years.
He and his wife, Donna, created the Love Harder Project, a 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization dedicated to anti-bullying and funded by proceeds from his performances and public donations.
In 2020, Flannery developed a life-threatening staph infection, but after two of the hardest months of his life was able to recover at home with help from his ever-loving family.
Now Tim Flannery is healthy and ready to play shows with his band. He is currently booking shows and writing new songs for his latest album, Waiting On A Miracle which will be released in 2022.
