      EVENT DETAILS
      BENEFIT CONCERT FOR KDHX-FM 88.1 PROGRAMMER GABRIEL

      The St. Louis blues community and KDHX have joined together for this benefit for Gabriel, a truly legendary DJ at 88.1. Performers include Marquise Knox, the Arthur Williams Blues Band, Silver Cloud with Ron Edwards, the Cryin' Shame Band and more. Proceeds benefit Gabriel, whose home was recently destroyed in a fire.

      Gabriel has been a radio DJ in the St. Louis region since the early '50s, mixing together R&B, jazz, soul, hillbilly, gospel, rock & roll and what he likes to call "the holy blues" with inimitable style. Along with being a broadcaster, Gabriel has been a producer and recording artist, and this event may the see the CD release of a collection of his long out-of-print R&B cuts. Artist and author Kevin Belford has also designed a set of Gabriel postcards, which will be avaible for purchase at the venue.

      Lineup features: Marquise Knox, the Arthur Williams Blues Band, Silver Cloud with Ron Edwards, the Cryin' Shame Band, Uvee Hayes, JJ & the Fella's with Miss Sha, Big Mike Aguirre, and Bernie Hayes as master of ceremonies.

      This past June, Gabriel's home in East St. Louis suffered a devastating fire. Help Gabriel recover some of his losses with a night of music at BB's Jazz, Blues and Soups.
