BENEFIT FOR CADILLAC JOHNSON

If you are a regular listener to BIG TEXAS BLUES, you know I love me some Michael 'Cadillac' Johnson! A sweetheart of a man, Cadillac is always willing to step up and help someone or minister to them in their time of need! 

Well, now he is in need. He has to have an operation to remove a tumor on his parathyroid gland in his neck. He does have insurance and the prognosis is good for the surgery. The only problem is he needs to come up with the deductible for the insurance to be able to make this happen. This is hard to do on a fixed income! And harder even still for a musicians income!!

The friends of Cadillac Johnson have stepped up to help him with a benefit this Sunday, December 28th at Fred's TCU location from 4pm-10:30pm. Acts scheduled to appear are Buddy Whittington, the Super Kings, Mike Morgan, Dave Milsap, Band of Brothers, Blind Dog Cooley, Steve Hill, Dylan Bishop and Reo Casey, and many special guests. There will also be a silent auction.

We would like all of Cadillac's friends to be able to play a little, but even more importantly, we need the FINANCIAL SUPPORT for someone who is always willing to help others. 

You can make a donation at the benefit. If you can't make the benefit but would still like to make a donation, you can do so by making a payment thru PAYPAL (send to revcadillacjohnson@hotmail.com) or send check or money order donations to Michael Johnson P.O. 470183 Fort Worth, TX 76147-0183
Here is the tenative line-up:

Dylan Bishop & Reo Casey - 4- 4:30 Band of Brothers - 4:45 - 5:15 Blind Dog Cooley - 5:30 - 6:00 Dave Milsap - 6:15 - 6:45 Buddy Whittington - 7:00 7:30 Mike Morgan - 7:45 - 8:15 Super Kings - 8:30 - 9:00 Steve Hill - 9:15 - 9:45
Johnny Red - 10:00 - 10:30

I am proud to be your host for this event. Please come out and show your support for Cadillac!!!
