Regardless of what you think of local music, you can't argue with one hard fact: The music folks around here are inordinately generous, especially when it comes to one of their own.
Rick Schroeder, a well-respected sound engineer, is having some medical issues and his musician friends want to help. So on Sunday, Feb. 28, a whole passel of them are getting together and for an evening of music. Acts include Schroeder himself, the Americana Jazz Saxophone Quartet, Jimmy Lloyd Rea and Rockin' Ron Carnes, Gerry and the Dreambenders, Less Batteries, Hoochie Coochie Men, Cosmic Family Band, Bell Curve, Americana Jazz Saxophone Quartet, Sonic Minstrel, Darian Renee and Jordan Fife, Carmel Crock and Ken Harris, Russ Pfeifer Question, Underachievers Overachieving and more.
This all-ages shindig goes down on Sunday, Feb. 28, 2-9 p.m. at the Rose Room. They're asking for a $5 suggested donation and questions can be directed to organizer Ken Harris at 208-440-4590.
