The 2018 Crisis Center Food Bank Last Dash benefit to wrap up Project Holiday was very special-thank you to all who attended and/or contributed. Over 150 people came out to the Mill, as we raised over $2500 toward holiday meals for the less fortunate! It was so much fun to play with Mr.Kevin Burt (and Phoebe). The crowd was clearly having fun. Thank you to all of the sponsors who provided donations for the raffle, which was a huge success.
MUSIC WITH A MISSION!
.......to our Iowa City-based band "HomeBrewed". We are having a blast playing Rockabilly, Rock and Blues for receptive crowds to whom we are indebted for their support. Having fun is key as we play tunes from the likes of Johnny Cash, Elvis, Stray Cats, Keb Mo, LIttle Walter, Queen, George Thorogood, Eric Clapton, Sonny Boy Williamson and Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats. We love all kinds of music, thus we have chosen to play music that goes back to the intersection of blues, gospel and country and play the songs that led to rock and rock and roll. We use our music to also give back for all of the blessings we have had in life and play primarily for fundraisers for charitable organizations. Please let us know if you have a fundraiser in the Iowa City area that would benefit from having live music.
