A Flash From The Past!

We went to Jimmy Black's Benefit yesterday and had a great time! I saw people that I haven't seen since my early childhood. It was so cool to reconnect! I had a lot of family that was there as well that I haven't seen for a long time, since they had moved to other states years ago.

There were lots of people. Musicians, fans and family that turned out for the event. All of the musicians had a chance to play, which made for an array of music styles. Of course we went over our time allotment. The park was very gracious to allow us to keep rockin into the night. Our numbers started thinning out once people could no longer feel their toes. They raised some money for the family, the film crew got some great shots and most of all....the Black family felt much love.

Last but not least...these are the grown up children that were in my earlier 70's pic. From left; Jared Walley(my cousin), Geronimo (amazing singer and musician, like his dad) , Darin (Jared's cousin who plays some wicked drums!).
