Santa Barbara Blues Society Benefit Show at Community Arts Workshop
In May 2022, the Santa Barbara community lost two outstanding musicians, Byl Carruthers of Cafe R&B and Tom Murray of Stiff Pickle Orchestra. Their absence will be a major loss to the local cultural scene. All of the proceeds of this event will go to benefit their families.
Music for this show will be provided by three excellent local bands that the Santa Barbara Blues Society sponsored at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN: Paradise Kings, East Valley Road, and Rent Party Blues Band.
The Community Arts Workshop (CAW) is located at 631 Garden Street, Santa Barbara. There will be food and beverages, and room to dance. Tickets are $25 and available at the event or in advance through the Santa Barbara Blues Society website: sbblues.org
