“Side by Side Benefit Blues Show – OK, so we can probably all agree that a homeless bluesman has more to sing about than one that lives in a three bedroom two bath with central heat and air; in fact, isn’t sleeping under a bridge and being flat busted the quintessential image and songwritin’ fodder of the red-blooded blues singer? But being without a home is no joke and it’s certainly not a gimmick, and that’s what “Side by Side” is all about. The organization provides a safe environment for homeless musicians over at Loaves and Fishes, and this afternoon benefit show at the Torch (where else?) will be raising money for the program. Scheduled performers include Gary Mendoza Blues Band, the Used Blues Ban and the BluSoul Band, with special guests Kyle Rowland, Leo Bootz, The Deacon and Johnny "Guitar" Knox.”
