The music community is coming together to help a woman who has been the heart and soul of the Ventura music scene for many years, Polly Hoganson. Polly and her husband Steve were pivotal in helping so many artists launch their careers, giving them a safe place to play as well as bringing national acts to our town. Now Polly needs our help. There will be a benefit concert on November 24 at Bombay Bar and Grill, 143 S California St, Ventura, from 3:00 pm to midnight. The benefit will help with medical expenses and recovery for a much needed operation.
At press time these are the artists schedule to perform: The White Buffalo, Timmy Curran, Meiko, Shane Alexander, Todd Hannigan, Lee Koch, Guy Martin, Tommy Marsh, 50 Sticks of Dynamite, Ray Jaurique & the Uptown Boys, Kyle Hunt, Jade Hendrix, Justine Bennett, Jamie Drake, Shelby Figueroa, Pi Jacobs, Nathan McEuen, Xoc Moraza and Roger Keiaho and more! (Added note 11/20: The more includes: Calico the Band, Max Kasch Trio, Chelsea Williams and Salty Suites, Seth Petersen)
This will be a full night of amazing music for someone who has helped launch and nurture the careers of so many musicians. Tickets will be available at the door $15 from 3-6pm; after 6pm $20. Also scheduled is a raffle/silent auction.
Thank you for your help.
