A Little Help From My Friends

For nearly 45 years, I have shared my love of making music with you. The comfort and connection that music brings to me has gotten me through both good times and bad. This is why I am asking for your help to reunite me with my old friends in The Mars Light and HB & Friends in Illinois in August.

 As many of you know, over Memorial Day weekend, a driver drove 60 mph into our house, passed through three walls and stopped 6 feet from the bed I was sleeping in. Aside from the immense shock of this experience, the damage to our home was extensive and it is currently uninhabitable.

Compounding the stresses of losing our home and many of our belongings, the financial burden has made it impossible for me to travel to Illinois at this time.

 I have been asked to come from Florida to play the annual Grateful Garcia Gathering in Earlville, IL on August 1st with HB & Friends and at HB’s Bobstock on August 4th with my friends in The Mars Light.

 I’m embarrassed and never thought I’d be in this position, but I am asking for a little help from my friends. Any help financial or otherwise would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you so very much! This means a lot to me.
