This needs to stop and you can help. I'm Michael Halloran, radio personality in sd for 30+ years.
Bob is a long time friend of mine and reached out to me, So I’ve organized this to help him out. We need to raise money to get him into safe housing. We've pulled together local musicians,
Dani Bell and The Tartantist,
and The Beat Farmers to perform a benefit show at....
The Music Box on March 22nd. Tickets are $10
(proceeds go to Helping Bob),
Your donation here will count as your ticket! If you'd like to donate more than $10, Music Box will give you a specially designed poster from the show for anything $25 and above. Your support is appreciated, if you can come to the show great! If you cannot attend but still want to help please make a donation here.
Bob Wilson says:
"I'm not homeless, I know where my home is, here in OB, I'm houseless!"
"I want to avoid being a street person, homeless,...
he goes on to say...
"7 years at 300 shows a year and The Bacchanal and 30 years in numerous other clubs!"
I've exhausted friends to stay with because of lack of funds, and waiting for social security disability is a bitch!
Whatever, i did Lights for a lot of years for a lot of Bands and it was fun!...still is!! ~ Bob Lights!
from the BEAT FARMERS:
"Bob always made it happen. He made The Beat Farmers look good! It couldn't have been very easy, but he'd click the stage lights on and suddenly we were beautiful! He always helped us out, and now we're happy to help him!
