Lloyd “Have Mercy” Jones has a tremendous opportunity to record his 12 new songs of “Swampified American Roadhouse Music” with Kevin McKendree (Grammy winning keyboardist and producer for Delbert McClinton, and John Haitt) at “The Rock House” in Nashville!
There are many costs creating a project of this magnitude. Blood. Sweat. Tears. Cash. Lloyd is taking care of the first three and we want to help him with the last!
Those of us who support our local musicians on a daily basis, by hosting or attending shows, LOVE to be a part of their success on a local, national and international level. Part of it is selfish (“I knew him when”) but mostly it’s selfless, because we want to pay them back for the beauty they’ve brought to our lives through their sound.
So, Catfish Lou’s is hosting a “Play it Forward” event to help raise funds to defer costs of his travel, studio, and production costs! There will be a raffle and a percentage of the bar will also be donated for the cause. Artists will be announced and added to this event as they are booked, so please keep your eyes on social media for further information!
Lloyd will also be setting up a Kickstarter funding online and we’ll post how you can contribute this route if you’re unable to make the show at Catfish Lou’s.
Catfish Lou’s, 2460 NW 24th. Sunday, March 17, 2:00 pm – 9:00 pm. Admission is by donation at the door.
