Come out to Duff’s Garage on Sunday, December 15th and help raise needed funds for both The Ben Rice Band and Tevis Hodge Jr for their upcoming trip to Memphis this January as they will compete in the International Blues Challenge. This event is a full afternoon and early evening of first rate blues as many of the local area’s finest acts will be dropping by to help out. In no particular order, these friends will include Kevin Selfe, Karen Lovely, Franco Paletta & The Stingers, The Portland Blues Divas featuring Lucy Hammond and Melissa Buchanan, Bridge City Blues Band and Jeff “Drummerboy” Hayes. And of course, Ben Rice & The iLLamatics and Tevis Hodge Jr.
Doors open at 2:00 pm and the fun will begin at 2:30 pm. Aside from the music, there will also be a raffle and door prizes that include items such as CDs, T-shirts, Ben Rice Barbecue Sauce and even cigarbox guitars. Admission is a suggested donation of $10.00, remember it is not inexpensive to travel to Memphis, so every bit helps. Duff’s Garage is at 1635 SE 7th.
