Many thanks to all the bands who have expressed a desire to play a benefit for Chris Gray. Now you will have your chance. We've set a date and picked a venue and now all you need to do is send your info to this link.
A few facts:The show will be an all-day, all-night affair at the Continental Club complex on Saturday, January 14. The proceeds will help defray costs of Chris's rehabilitation from his October heart attack, with any funds raised beyond what he needs going to benefit the Houston Blues Museum.
Deadline for entry is Friday, November 18, so get cracking.
Due to what we anticipate will be an overwhelming wave of generosity, we cannot guarantee that every band will get a slot, but we encourage all to apply, and we also encourage those we cannot accomodate to come on down and show your support anyway. This will be a day and night to remember and you won't want to miss it.
