The 4th annual Inner City Blues Festival returns with an all star line-up of the finest musicians in the Portland area to benefit Health Care For All Oregon (www.hcao.org) on Saturday, April 11, from 6:00 pm to 12:00 am. The location moved this year to the North Portland Eagles Lodge, 7611 N Exeter & Lombard. Admission is $20.00 and tickets can be purchased in advance through www.TicketTomato.com.
This year’s line-up is amazing, with headliners including Andy Stokes, the Norman Sylvester Band, Bill Rhoades, LaRhonda Steele, King Louis & Friends, The Strange Tones with The Volcano Vixens, Tevis Hodge Jr, Steve Cheseborough, Bloco Alegria, Richard Arnold, Dave Kahl, Sarah Billings, Jay “Bird” Koder, Newell Briggs, Renee Mitchell, Paul Knauls and The Mad As Hell Doctors.
The event will also honor the memories of these community and music ambassadors who were lost this past year: Janice Scroggins, Mel Solomon, Linda Hornbuckle, Jim Miller, Lucinda Tate and Geneva Knauls. They are all dearly missed.
This is a 21 & over event, with food, desserts and drinks for sale. There will be a silent auction, raffle prizes and a Community Village with information tables. The show will also be simulcast live on KBOO Radio for those unable to attend.
Let’s all get together and join forces — together we can “Heal the Healthcare Blues.”
