**UPDATED** FUNERAL SERVICES AND BENEFIT JAM FOR JOHNNY WOODS

Here is the info I received last night from Jackie Don Loe:

Tonight's Sunday Blues Happening Jam at Nate's Seafood in Addison will be dedicated to the memory of bassist Johnny Woods. Johnny held the bass spot for the entire 3 1/2 years of the jam, never missing a Sunday. Donations to help with Johnny's funeral costs will be collected at the jam. Carl Bush will stand in tonight on bass with the band.

I've said many times, this jam is by far the best in the Dallas/Ft Worth area because everyone feels welcome, and the jams represent the whole of the blues: traditional, soul, classic, country, funky and always fun! Johnny was an intricate part of this, and will be missed by all his friends and fans alike. Come out tonight, sit in, jam, and pay your respects to a classy Old-School Bluesman, our friend Johnny Woods.


Services for Johnny will be:
