Johnny Depp is set to reunite with his old band and play two charity concerts this weekend.

The actor – who has previously recorded a solo album and played slide guitar on Oasis’ song Fade In-Out – will appear with his band “The Kids” at the Club Cinema in Pompano Beach, Florida, on August 29 and 30 as part of a lineup that includes Critical Mass, Tight Squeeze, Slyder, The Romantics, The Reactions, Z-Cars, Mad as Birds, and Charlie Pickett.

Proceeds from the show will go to the Sheila Witkin Foundation, a non-profit organization that raises money for charities – such as the Dan Marino Foundation – through live music. Sheila Witkin – affectionately known as “Mom” – revolutionized the South Florida rock music scene in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s and was well known for supporting charitable causes. The first Sheila Witkin Memorial Concert – which also featured Depp and his band – was held in January 2007 and raised over $30,000. Their aim this year is to raise $100,000.

Tickets to the concerts are available through Ticketmaster.
