Mark Whitman benefit at the Highway 99 Blues Club

A benefit for long-time Seattle R & B guitarist and singer Mark Whitman will be held at the Highway 99 Blues Club on Sunday, October 7th. Showtime is 6:00 PM and the suggested donation is $5.00 at the door. A raffle will also be conducted throughout the night.

The benefit will help to defray the costs of Mark's recent hospitalization and ongoing physical therapy sessions.

This show will be hosted by Justin Kausal-Hayes, who also hosts the Blue Monday jam session at the Highway 99. The show format will be an invitation-only jam session, and the house band will consist of Chris Leighton, Lisa Ramaglia, Scotty Harris, Rolf larson, and Jeremy Kidder. A partial list of guest artists includes: Rod Cook, Paul Green, Eric "Two Scoops" Moore, Alice Stuart, Lee Oskar, Tim Turner, Hank Yanda, Doug McGrew, Kimball Conant, Scott Lind, Roger Enders, Bill Blackstone, Billy Shew, Sammy Eubanks, Eric Daw, and John Keski.

This show should be a good 'un! Drop in at the club and contribute to a worthy cause!

Well, I'm not sure. I've been told that he is suffering difficulties from an adverse reaction to medication that he has been taking.
