CBA Presents Blues Night – NW Women Rhythm & Blues
Produced by Sonny Hess
Part of the Elevate Unity Benefit Series at Lovejoy Rooftop,
the event side of Botanist 910 NW 14th Ave., Portland
NW Women Rhythm & Blues are composed of top female performers in the region as well as fresh new talent ready to be introduced to the Portland blues scene. This night’s planned impressive line-up includes Sonny Hess, Julie Strange, Rae Gordon, Kathryn Grimm, Myrtle Brown, Leah Hinchcliff and Ward Griffiths. Every show is a little different. When women perform with women, a certain magic happens!
The CBA has been working in partnership with Elevate Unity, a 501c3 charity, to advocate for social equality and address the need to support our local venues, production staff, restaurant workers and musicians from the devastating effects of our industry shutdown. The benefit music series spotlights Portland’s top soul, blues, Latin, jazz, and rhythm & blues artists, and features positive commentary from community activists, nonprofits and social equality advocates, sharing ideas and tangible strategies to unite our divided country.
This series is a fundraising effort for various nonprofits, including Elevate Unity, Cascade Blues Association, Jazz Society of Oregon, Ethos Music Center, Black United Fund, Legacy Mentor & Friends of Noise. Even if you can’t make it to the show, please consider offering a direct contribution from the ticket page to support this very important work.
