L.A.s legendary-beloved Sax man BIG JAY McNEELY
is being inducted into the BLUES Hall Of Fame in Memphis in May...but he needs our help! The Blues foundation has a very small budget and is paying for little of the actual costs associated with the trip to Memphis. Some of Big Jay's friends and colleagues, who also happen to be some of the most talented musicians around, are presenting a great evening of music at Joe's in Burbank, where all the $ collected will go directly towards Big Jay's travel expenses to
receive this great honor. Whatever $ left over after Big Jay's expenses will be donated to the "RAISE THE ROOF" campaign, which is a fund setup for the construction of the Hall Of Fame itself. So all the way down the line, a worthy BLUES investment in one of our city's most valuable Blues men!!!
