Bluesman Mike Heads Benefits for Salvation Army and the Philippines This Month

The best way to get rid of the blues is to play some good blues and make it for the benefit of those in need. Many of the blues players in the Valley do just that. One example would be Bluesman Mike and the Blues Review Band, set to host the sixth annual Toy and Diaper Drive at the Rhythm Room on Sunday, December 8.

They join a list including Hans Olson, Nina Curry, George Bowman, Jay Morton, and Sir Harrison. Bluesman Mike asks those attending to bring either canned goods, diapers, or both. "We don't want your money," he says. "There is no admission charge."
