Some nice-guy rock stars with serious chops and strong ties to the area are teaming up for a fundraiser concert appropriately dubbed a Rock & Roll Gala. Rick Derringer (“Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo,” “Hang on Sloopy”), Larry Crane (guitarist and songwriter with John Mellencamp’s band), Stormbringer (popular Tampa rock band) and Dave Colwell (former Bad Company guitarist) will perform Saturday to raise money for the SYC Charitable Foundation. It provides educational scholarships for studies in marine science, marine engineering or seamanship. The $175 tickets include dinner and drinks at the luxurious, waterfront venue and, remember, it’s for charity.

6:30 p.m. Saturday; Sarasota Yacht Club, 1100 John Ringling Blvd., Sarasota; $175: 365-4191; sarasotayachtclub.org
