On the heels of the pop music's mega-production telethon effort to raise money for the victims of Haiti's earthquake comes a similar heartfelt effort- grassroots this time around- when local musicians gather in the front room of the Intersection in Grand Rapids on Januaray 28 to raise money for the Red Cross effort in Haiti. The Donald Kinsey Band along with Jimmie Stagger (presumably solo) and other local musicians including Griff and Jon's Afterhours Experience - featuring Ray White (former guitarist with Frank Zappa) with Griff from the Verve Pipe (Botfly, Daddy Longlegs). Bluesman Stagger has answered the call for musical assistance once again and lends his time as he has done throughout his career for the positive work of groups like God's Kitchen, Hospice of Grand Rapids, and Crib Full of Blues among many others. If you've never seen Jimmie alone with just a National steel guitar then you've never seen his real forte in action. $20 VIP includes food at 5, music at 6; from 7-11 only $10.
