From the Santa Cruz Sentinel:
"Listening to these guys at Locals' Night, you'll feel like you're in a venue that's part Detroit Motown nightclub, part New Orleans House party. " - No Jive!
Grammy nominee Cindy Edwards always reaches down, pulls out the best part of a song, and then holds it up in front of her audience as if to say, "This is what I'm talking about!"

Note from a prior Fundraiser:
I just wanted to send another big THANK YOU to all of you. Without your help we wouldn't have had any success. In the end we were able to raise $11,000 for Kevin. Add 2K more that has come in through other donations and I call it a huge success.
You have also generated a new fan club and a long list of followers who will keep track of your future moves.
Best wishes, DH
