King Bee Fundraiser on October 6

Date: 10/6/2016
From: 7:00pm to 9:30pm

Capitol Oyster Bar

It is time, once again, to get together to help a local band gain national recognition.

Local blues band King Bee recently won the regional competition for the Blues Foundation’s International Blues Challenge. The four-piece group will travel to Memphis this coming February to compete with bands from all across the country in the National IBC competition.

Not long ago, ARMS held a fund-raiser to help send John Bull and Sheffield Walker to the IBC in Memphis. Now it is time to do the same for King Bee, whose members have over 100 years experience making music. Formed in 2012, the band has entertained thousands of central Alabama music lovers.

The fund-raiser will be held October 6 at Capitol Oyster Bar. King Bee will play along with members of various Montgomery-area bands. There is no cover charge, but donations are encouraged. Music begins at 7 p.m.

Band members include JC on vocals and harmonica, Dan Cunningham on vocals and guitar, Emery Kidd on bass, and AJ Maestro Bryant on percussion.
