Mama Cares

Please join us in supporting this MAMA Cares. We’ll be playing at their annual Winter Ball at the High Noon Saloon on Saturday, 2/16, with two other great bands–Tony Casteneda’s Latin Jazz Band and VO5. In addition to the music, you’ll have a chance to win prizes via a raffle and there will be an auction for various items including artwork, musical instruments, etc. Doors open at 7 pm.

Here’s more about this wonderful organization:

Being a musician is a labor of love. Unfortunately, most full-time musicians can’t rely on a steady paycheck or employer-funded health insurance, leaving many uninsured or under-insured. When tragedy strikes, this stark reality can be devastating. MAMA Cares was born from a desire to do something about this.

MAMA Cares was formed in 2015 as a result of a benefit event to raise funds for longtime Madison musician, Robert J. Conaway and his  family, who faced steep medical bills after their son became gravely ill. The event was a large success and the Conaways wished to help the Madison Area Music Association establish a fund that could help in such instances. Robert seeded the initiative with $500 and the first Fund was named after his son, the Jacy Ray Fund.

MAMA Cares has established criteria that, when met, can result in the disbursal of funds to help Madison-area musicians and their direct families in times of need.

High Noon Saloon

High Noon Saloon

We’re excited to have Ken Olufs joining us tomorrow at the High Noon Saloon. Ken is a veteran harmonica player on the regional Blues scene, boasting some serious talent, tenacity, and tone.

Doors open at 7. Wrenclaw will kick things off. Blending country harmonies and slithery slide guitars,they create a down-home, backwoods soul shakedown. We’ll play next and then RailHopper will lay down a high-energy mix of Honky Tonk and Southern Rock. You can expect a jam session later in the night. So stick around!
