The Linda Hornbuckle Band Saturday, May 18th $10 at the door
Well folks, as many of you now know, Linda Hornbuckle is continuing her fight with cancer. She’s undergoing treatment and appreciates all of your well wishes and prayers. While she fights hard, her band is carrying on in her name with the help of some good friends! Andy Stokes and LaRhonda Steele have been filling in for Linda for several of her shows, and let me tell you, it’s been awe-inspiring! Linda’s band will bring it once again with drummer Lenn Russell, locking up the two guys I like to call the peanut butter and jelly sandwich of funk, bassist Randy Monroe and guitarist Doug Lewis. Sax giant Renato Caranto is home from being on the road with Esperanza Spaulding and will lend his ready hand as well. Hammond organ master Louis Pain rounds out the band.
This is jazz, funk and soul music all in one night people. To learn more about Linda, check her out at www.lindahornbuckle.com. Come on out and show her your love!
