“The phone’s been ringing off the hook,” Lee Greenfeld, co-owner of Magnetic Field, told GO Brooklyn, about the outpouring of support that the rock club has gotten for its Feb. 3 concert and raffle benefiting Question Mark, the elusive lead singer of the Mysterians (“96 Tears”), whose Michigan home burned down in January.
Greenfeld said he was moved to host the fundraiser simply because he was a fan who wanted to do something for the reclusive Question Mark (whose real name was Rudy Martinez, before he had it legally changed to ?).
Some big raffle prizes include an autographed pair of Alice Cooper’s pants and a vintage 1960s membership card to the Shangri-Las fan club, donated by lead singer Mary Weiss.
All of the proceeds from the door and raffles will go directly to Question Mark, who is currently living in a trailer.
“A Benefit for Question Mark” will take place at Magnetic Field (97 Atlantic Ave. between Henry and Hicks streets in Brooklyn Heights) on Feb. 3 at 7 pm. $10 minimum donation requested. For information call (718) 834-0069.
