Tonight (Wednesday, Sept. 7) the Huki Lau Island Grill, 16th & O
Streets, Sacramento, is doing a Katrina disaster benefit from 5:00 to
10:00 p.m. With a New Orleans theme, they'll be serving Jambalaya and
bourbon cheesecake for $20. The entire proceeds for the evening will be
donated; split evenly between the Red Cross and the Salvation Army for
use in Katrina relier.
Live music will be provided from 5:00 to 7:30 by the K Street Ramblers
Jazz Band and by Dr. Bach's Jazz Practitioners from 7:30 to 10:00.
The Ramblers lineup includes Bill Dickson, cornet; Charlie Hull,
clarinet; Tony Rossi, trombone; Ralph Thompson, banjo/tenor guitar;
Elmer Nemeth, string bass; and Jimmy Rivers, Drums. The same lineup that
plays in the Sacramento Jazz Jubilee and for corporate affairs and
private parties in the area.
The Practitioners will have Charlie Gehlbach, trumpet and leader. I'm
not up on the rest of his lineup as this all came together at the last
minute, but Charlie always has a great group and does a fun program, at
the Jazz Jubilee and elsewhere.
Good food, fun music, and the money going for a good and urgent cause.
