After playing a gig on April 23rd, 83-year-old Eddie Tigner of Atlanta was too tired to carry his heavy keyboard from his car into his house. When he awoke the next morning, both his car and his keyboard were gone. Eddie’s car was found but in very bad shape; the keyboard is gone for good. Now Eddie is unable to travel or perform, preventing him from playing the music he loves and from earning a living.

The Atlanta blues community will come together on Sunday, May 16th, to raise money to replace Eddie’s car and music equipment.

Music by:
Snave & the Grass
The Rockaholics
What The…?
Lola
Mudcat
Uncle Sugar (featuring Mr. Tigner himself)
and many others…

Donations accepted at the door and food will be available for sale. We will also be showcasing items for an online auction, as well as have great items for raffle!
