benefit for tom royerTom Royer has provided the city with a steady back beat for quite some time, playing with many of the local blues community’s elite artists, especially behind his wife Lily Wilde. For a while now Tom has been living with pulmonary fibrosis and is in serious need of a lung transplant. So with the help of his wealth of friends, there will be a benefit show taking place at Duff’s Garage on Sunday, March 16th, to help raise what we can to assist with Tom’s receiving a new lung.

The show will start at 5:00 pm, with a $10.00 suggested donation, but please feel generous and give what you can afford.

Performers who are scheduled to appear at this event are: Lily Wilde, The DK Stewart Sextet with The Soul Survivor Horns, The Windshield Vipers featuring Jon Koonce, Danny Schauffler and Rich Gooch, Rockabilly Hall of Famer Levi Dexter backed by The High Flyers, Lloyd Jones Struggle, Steve Bradley, John Bunzow, Albert Reda and Mark Spangler. Comedian DC Malone will serve as emcee for the event.

Please come out and support Tom Royer with this event. Duff’s Garage is located at 1635 SE 7th Ave., Portland.
