Over 100 people came out to the Mill to support the Domestic Violence Intervention Program and the Rape Victim Advocacy Program last Sunday in less than ideal weather. Between the gate, raffle, silent auction, and pledge cards, about $2000 was raised to help keep the phone consulting service operating for families in need. It was a pleasure playing along with Two Bit Maniac who were outstanding. Another fun event for a great cause. Thanks to all who attended and helped with the organization of the benefit.
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.
