Benefit For Bill Johnston, Co-Founder Of A Warehouse
Bill Johnston, founding partner of A Warehouse, was diagnosed with throat cancer in January 2012. There will be a benefit on his behalf on January 10, 2013, at The Joy Theater, 1200 Canal Street, New Orleans, LA; doors open at 6PM Central, with a silent auction, show begins at 7PM Central. Tickets are $35 on Ticketmaster.com or by calling 1-800-745-3000. If you cannot make the benefit, contributions can be sent to: Benefit for Bill Johnston, 2213 General Pershing Street, New Orleans, LA 70115. For additional information, contact Louie Duet at email@example.com
In a telephone conversation with Bob Wahl (http://www.blackstrat.net/), there were a few seats available. Folks, this looks like a BLOWOUT! Bob also told me that Bill was the guy who called the radio stations and booked and paid for the advertisements...remember all those great ads on Beaker Street?
There will be an all-star line-up and many fabulous items to be auctioned off by silent auction.
If anyone wishes, I can forward the e-mail Bob Wahl sent me, as there are many other details.
By the way, see this link for additional information regarding a memorial for A Warehouse: http://www.fox8live.com/story/20161644/effort-to-commemorate-the-warehouse-concert-venue-gears-up#.UM6bSHykhKc.email
Bill Johnston (along with Don Fox) brought a great thing to New Orleans with A Warehouse and many bands came there NOT for the money, but to play for the people and have a great time. Let's see if we can help Bill in his fight against cancer.
Thank you, Bob Wahl, for all your efforts, and to Bill Johnston for A Warehouse, and for being friends of Mighty 1090 KAAY Blogspot! And thank everyone for helping Bill Johnston....
