TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Mountain View neighborhood is getting a musical fundraiser in its efforts to go greener.

The Boondocks Lounge at 3306 N. 1st Avenue will present the Kevin Pakulis Band with special guests Neil Harry and Ned Sutton on Sunday, June 29, 2014, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., in support of the neighborhood's tree planting project. 

Pakulis is an award-winning singer/songwriter known for his lively mix of original and uniquely interpreted American songs. The suggested donation is $7.

Proceeds go to the Mountain View Neighborhood Association, which is creating a "green belt" near the Boondocks for future farmers' markets and community gatherings. 

Cathy Warner and Bill Shew have owned the popular bar and grill for 18 years.  They regularly host benefits for nonprofit organizations and local concerns.

Pedal-steel guitarist Neil Harry and singer Ned Sutton will join Pakulis and his band's regular line-up of Kevin Heiderman on bass, drummer Les Merrihew, and Joel Dvoskin on guitar and vocals.
