Mark your Calendars, The 4th Annual Blues for a Cause is set for April 7!
We are excited to announce the headliner for this year’s blues benefit will be the legendary Poppa Chubby, who has been a powerful force in both the New York blues scene and worldwide for more than 25 years! As a hard swinging blues rock performer, Chubby describes his performance style as “the Stooges meets Buddy Guy, Motorhead meets Muddy Waters and Jimi Hendrix meets Robert Johnson.”
Attendees will also get to experience the monster chops of Special Guest Star, Mr. Sipp ” The Mississippi Blues Child “who will be opening the concert beginning at 7:00 pm. Recognized for his award winning guitar virtuoso, delta blues vocals, songwriting ability and incredible showmanship, Mr. Sipp is the total package.
“Once again CYFS Blues for a Cause is bringing in world class blues acts to the Peoria area to celebrate a great cause,” said CYFS Chief Operating Officer Tony Riordan. “This concert is a crucial fundraiser for our agency and those that donate really make an impact in allowing us to continue with the work we do to support children and families and communities in need across central Illinois. This is not a boring rubber chicken fundraiser. We hope you can join us and come out and have a good time, “added Riordan.
CYFS has 11 offices across Illinois, and annually serves over 3,100 individuals in the Peoria area, 7,000 families in 37 counties, and over 20,000 individuals statewide.
