- The Beat Kitchen | Chicago, Illinois
An amazing line-up of bands got together to support Jackson Presley Diamond.
Tony and People in the Background
Ken Vandermark & Dianogah!
YOU will enjoy an evening or two of live performances by some of Chicago’s finest bands and musicians (oh… and nonagon, too).
YOU will have a guilt-free excuse to escape your family-packed house for a few hours during the holiday mayhem
YOU will painlessly contribute to a handful of good causes, including…
THE JACKSON PRESLEY DIAMOND FUND…
Jackson is an amazing little kid who is on the long road to recovery after a “routine” round of childhood vaccinations resulted in (among other things) a coma, cerebral palsy and other severe developmental setbacks. His parents, Chaney and Lee (Lee is in The Douglass Kings and Republica Republic), aren’t rich folks and Jackson’s care has been very expensive. More info (and great pictures of Jackson) can be found at www.jacksonpresleydiamond.com
The Benefit will span two evenings, January 29th and 30th.
