More music more music more music

Here's the press release for my show tomorrow:

Medical Benefit Show for Travis Koopman
Fri. Feb. 25 @ the Crystal Corner Bar, 1302 Williamson St., Madison, WI 9:45 PM

On Fri. Feb. 25 a benefit will be held for Travis Koopman at the Crystal Corner Bar 1302 Williamson St. in Madison, WI (9:45 PM). Travis, a vocalist and guitar player with the local blues group the Cash Box Kings, was hospitalized for about a week around Thanksgiving and eventually diagnosed with Crohn's Disease (an inflammatory intestinal disease).

Travis is feeling better and getting back on his feet, but as an uninsured musician living in today's healthcare climate, he's been stuck with some mighty large medical bills and outrageously high prescription drug costs. As a result, a number of musicians are coming together to put on a benefit show to help out Travis' cause. Billy Flynn, the Cash Box Kings, Kenny 'Beedy Eyes' Smith, Todd Cambio, Kenneth Burns (formerly of the Junkers) are just a few of the musicians already slotted for the event.

So come on down to the Crystal and enjoy an entire evening of excellent blues and roots music and help out a great cause. All proceeds from the show will go to help Travis pay off his hospital bills.
