Early morning, May 7, 2018, a fire broke out in the home of beloved musician, Jimmy Markham. The damage is devastating and unfortunately, there is no insurance. The structure of the house has severe damage as well as his belongings and personal memorabilia. At 78 years old, the home is all that Jimmy has. Please consider donating to this fund set up to help repair the destruction and get Jimmy's life back to normal as soon as possible.

All,
Jimmy is still in the hospital. Although he's had a very tough and challenging time with his health, he wishes to thank everyone for the love, support and good wishes! He also has a special message to his fellow musicians:

"To all of my musical brothers,

Seth J, Jesse A., Dustin P, Charles T, Frank P and others! You know who you are! Thank you for your love and support and for carrying the torch. I treasure you. See you in 3 weeks. I'm finishing physical therapy.

Much love Jimmy Markham."

We had a great night at Soul City Tulsa! Jimmy Markham and the Caretakers were on fire! Jimmy was in great spirits and sent out a lot of love to the audience. He said "There is no other place on earth like the music community in Tulsa, Oklahoma!" All money collected for the cover went directly into Jimmy's pocket so that he can start investing in the basics needed to rebuild a life. Thank you to Kevin and Amy of Soul City and the amazing audience! Everyone's love and generosity is much appreciated! #SaveJimmy
