A CD release party Friday will celebrate the new "Moondances Chapter One" compilation CDto benefit the Karli Rose Kell Music Scholarship Fund at River Music Experience.

The doors open at 7 p.m., and music starts at 8 in the Redstone Room, 129 Main St., Davenport. Admission is $7. The Ellis Kell Band will perform, with special guests featured throughout the evening.

The CD features original tracks by Ellis Kell, Andrew Landers, Dave Cox, Matt Podschweit, the Terry Hanson Ensemble, Tony Hoeppner, Jim the Mule, The Whoozdads, Kim Wiseman and Mark Johnson, Lojo Russo, Boothill Ridge, "Coney Island" Pete Collins, and Dave Sebree (founder of the Austin School of Music and Rock Camp USA).

Copies are available in Mojo's for $20 each. All tracks were used with permission of the artists for inclusion on this CD; they all donated their time and talent to the project.

The scholarship fund helps students in the community in need of financial assistance for music-lesson fees and program fees at the RME. More than $13,000 has been raised to date.

Karli Rose Kell died in an auto accident in October 2002. Proceeds from "Moondance" benefit concerts held in her memory in 2002, 2003, and 2004 generated funds for previous scholarships, which were awarded to graduating seniors from Rock Island High School who planned to further their music studies in college.
