I’m pleased to report that our Shore to Shore Benefit for the victims of Hurricane Katrina, was a great success. We had a large turnout all day long, and every single band did a terrific set. I am very proud to have been part of the team that organized the event.
There were a number of great performers, among them Gary U.S. Bonds, Lance Larson, Days Awake, The Commons, and Republic. Musically, there was a little something for everyone, assuming that you like rock and roll that is. It was all capped off by a great set by Gary U.S. Bonds (pictured), who delighted the crowd, and reminded everyone about why we were there, with a terrific, off the cuff medley of classic New Orleans songs.
